STUART, Va. -- In this edition of Roy's Folks, meet a couple who moved here from England and brought a little taste of Europe along with them. They raise water buffalo and make authentic mozzarella cheese.

That’s right, true mozzarella is made from water buffalo milk. In fact, in Italy you can’t call it mozzarella unless it comes from water buffalo.

They sell their cheese and water buffalo meat at the Old Salem Cobblestone Market every Saturday in Winston-Salem.
