Farmer cheese (or farmer's cheese or farmers' cheese) is made by pressing the moisture from cottage cheese; pressed drier still, it is sometimes rolled in a mixture of herbs and flavourings, or wrapped in very thin slices of flavourful smoked meats. A variant of cottage cheese, this cheese is more acidic and made by pressing out extra water out of the cottage cheese. For this reason, it is also called pressed cheese. Same like Pot cheese, this cheese is low in fat content. It is a simple cheese often used for fillings in blintzes and other foods. Around the world, farmer cheese is variably made using cow, sheep, or goat milk, each with its own final texture and nuance of flavour.
