Cheese is complex halachically. While some authorities permit drinking chalov stam (and using it to make cheese), NO authorities (to my knowledge) allow gevinas akum. A Jew MUST be present during the cheese-making process.

Even non-cholav-Yisroel cheeses must be made under the supervision of a Jew in order to be certified Kosher. There are a number of brands that make cheese with non-cholav-Yisroel milk, as it is substantially cheaper. But they all are Gevinas Yisroel.

I'm not a rabbi but this is my understanding of the situation.
Well, still non cholov yisroel is way way cheaper.

Ete. A single search shows a Breakstone's 48 oz cottage cheese tub for $4.99 online! And it has an OU-D. I pay more for a Mehadrin 16 oz.

Are there no big American cheese companies with an OU-D? I never checked but I'd assume there is.
Anyways, Costco CY cheese is limited to some mozzarella cheese. No cottage, farmer or American cheese.

I must point out here that if you eat cottage cheese , you eat friendships (large curd), not breakstones. Sorry

Ouch, still high.

Isnít POTF extra heavy/yummy milk? Or am I confusing it with a different brand?

Except that POTF tastes much better. I haven't yet found someone who disagrees.

FWIW, when they used to sell POTF gallons in ShorRite they were actually cheaper than the regular milk gallons. I used to see non-Jews who figured that out buying POTF.

POTF?
Pride of the Farm. It's produced by Kreider Farms in PA.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.
