ANCHORAGE - A dairy under construction near Wasilla is trying to sell cheese for delivery in the spring.
The dairy is selling the promise of cheese under a project it's calling the Cheese Futures Campaign. The project could help four dairy farms remaining in the Matanuska Valley.
The farms lost a buyer when the Mat-Maid Dairy filled its last order in December.
The new dairy can't now receive milk on a regular basis. Project sponsors say early money raised will be used to help keep milk supplies flowing.
Cheese futures range in price from $30 to $150. The cheese will take 60 days to age.
