Thank you all for your kind research into this. GLC, Margi, you are awesome! Grandes!

I just an email to the guy in Ontario, will let you know what he says.
A shop I found, (murrays' cheese per Margi's recommendation) sells fresh mozzarella di bufala too... Good stuff!

Me, too. And I've got the spare two acres in grass and clover. But I really don't want to commit to daily milking and such. Not for the occasional pizza, anyway.

Now if the buffalo would just go open range and drop by once a week to be milked, I might consider pulling some milk. Of maybe she could just drop off a gallon or two on the doorstep before dawn...

Mozzarella is not for pizza alone!!!

I have some cravings every now and then ...

I have bouts of wanting a toasty bruschetta with a slice of mazzarella on top, bread dipped in Sicilian Paesano olive oil, some Baleine salt, cracked grains of paradise, and some prosciutto di Parma on top.

Now that's an appetizer!!!!!!!!!!!

You just need to train them to milk themselves...


Such a simple word, row.

Got a reply from Ontario saying they don't ship to the US, but they ship elsewhere. Oh well...

Dead ended.

Thanks to all for contributing!

Well, look. Water buffalo may be hard to find in the U.S., but moose are much easier to come by. And their milk is even richer than water buffalo. Of course, in the U.S. most moose you find and get close to are more interest in killing you than being milked. But if you can manage to milk the vicious beast and make cheese, you're in the money. Supposedly the only moose cheese maker on Earth in Sweden has three moose cows, all rescued from the woods, producing 300 kg of cheese that goes for $1,000 A kg.

There are 255,000 of them in the U.S. Given the usual proportions of mostly females, a little math makes them capable of milk enough to make $21 U.S. billion ($21,000,000,000).

I'm not going near a moose, except by accident and then I am going to stay very still until they wander away.

When I lived in the country, there was one moose I would have challenged. Sucker used to dance in our herb garden. If I had ever caught him or her, I would have yelled and waved stuff at it.
