I made my first farmer cheese last night and it turned out great. There is a very easy to use recipe at

http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Home-Made-Farmers-Cheese/Detail.aspx

The recipe calls for 1 gallon of milk but I only used a half gallon and will have enough for my entire weeks dairy  

enjoy

As far as I can tell from instructions Paneer is made a similar way.  I haven't tested any of the paneer recipes to check.  I did read somewhere that Paneer didn't melt? I believe Farmer cheese is supposed to melt.  Maybe someone who is really into making cheese will know the true difference.  I'm looking for a good easy Mozarella recipe next

If you leave out the salt, it's paneer

I took a look at some cheese recipes online the other day. I couldn't seem to tell the difference between recipes for ricotta cheese (neutral) and farmer cheese (beneficial.) If I'm going to put the effort into making cheese, I want to make the beneficial kind!

Also, the farmer cheese I  buy contains milk and cultures. None of the recipes I've found online contain cultured milk, so I'm thinking that maybe what I can  buy in the store is healthier than the kind I could make.

No, bacteria makes it "cultured"

Some cheese summary:

paneer is made by just curdling milk with acid (lemon, lime ...) and straining liquid out.  

Cottage cheese is made via a process that involves using enzymes (like rennet) to curd the milk after heating it, then straining it

Ricotta cheese is made using the liquid (whey) left over from making cottage cheese or any other cheese for that matter (maybe even kefir cheese), but not the whey from paneer cheese or any cheeses made with an acid.  The whey is cooked to a certain temp, acid added to it and the curds get strained to form ricotta

Check this link for more info:

PS: edited to add Farmers cheese

Farmers cheese is made by pressing much of the liquid out of cottage cheese (paraphrasing here), so it is a pressed cottage cheese

whenever a link does not work for me, to make links work, I usually position the cursor at the end of the address shown in the browser (making sure nothing is selected) and press the delete key.  It gets rid of any leftover characters may be hidden there
