Notes: This cheese is the pride of our community here in Krebs, OK. The Italian immigrants who settled in this area to find work in the coal mines brought with them this old world Caciocavallo.  It has been a tradition that has lived on through the generations here in Southeast Oklahoma and we are proud to bring this local art to your table.
