Houston Dairymaids is a ten-year-old venture from seasoned cheese professional, Lindsey Schechter. Part business and part exploration, our goal is to meet artisan Texas cheesemakers, learn about their craft, and bring the best of their products to Houston. We look for cheeses naturally made by hand, and, when possible, from unpasteurized milk.
Through our cheese tastings and work with area chefs, we hope to share our experiences while expanding the offerings of specialty foods to our community.
Our shop is located in the Houston Heights in a building that was Danna's Market, a Sicilian grocery store built in the 1930s. Our Airline Drive neighborhood is a hub for many iconic Houston food businesses, including Tampico Seafood, Canino's Produce and El Bolillo Bakery.
