Are there any buffalo milk cheeses BESIDES mozzarella

In Ontario, there is a cheesemaker who makes different cheeses from water buffalo milk. Aside from the favourite mozzarella di bufala, they make ricotta, buffalo blue and my favourite scamorza. Scamorza is a soft cheese made by hanging the mozzarella by a string (moneybag style) and air drying it. They also make a smoked scamorza which is unbelievably tasty!

What Do Buffaloes Have to Do with Mozzarella?

Did you know that Ontario now has the largest milking water buffalo herd in North America? Their cheese under the label Bella Casara. It is made from 100% water buffalo milk and the water buffalo are of good Italian breeding stock. It's awesome cheese!
