Yes, Jerry Roberts, you can buy Illinois cheese

Jerry Roberts is the general sales manager at Webb Chevrolet in Oak Lawn, Illinois - the man who fired John Stone from his dealership because Stone wore a Green Bay Packers tie to work the day after the Packers defeated the Chicago Bears in the NFC championship game. (Stone now works for rival dealer Chevrolet of Homewood.)

Somehow I have the feeling that Jerry Roberts isn't all that enthused about Wisconsin cheese.

But never fear - Roberts can buy Illinois cheese. Here's an example:

Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery, LLC is Illinois’ first farmstead cheese making facility. On the rich prairie soils of Central Illinois, we have transformed the landscape from cash grain agriculture to diversified perennial fruit trees and berries, goat pastures, hayfields and prairie. We emphasize a forage-based diet for our dairy herd of Nubian and La Mancha goats—seasonal and diverse pastures and locally grown alfalfa and grass hay. Only their milk goes into our small batch, hand-crafted artisan farmstead cheeses.

Of course, all right-thinking people know that happy cows come from California.

P.S. For the record, PETA disagrees. Of course, PETA would probably throw things at John Stone's grandmother for being a Packers fan. And Stone's grandmother would probably throw things at PETA for being sexist.
