Farm Markets, and Making Cheese

Going to farm markets and making cheese has been my spring so far! This past week was by far the busiest!
We've got a schedule already made from now until November. We'll be making cheese on Monday's and Tuesday's (one or the other, depending on when the schedule allows). There may be an occasional Wednesday make if we're busy on Monday or Tuesday.

The farm market in Marietta has started a Wednesday evening market sponsered by the local YMCA. It's called "Get Fit Marietta", promoting eating local and healthy. We may not be at that market each week, but we'll try to be there often.

Guernsey Co. Farmer's Market in Cambridge, OH has begun as of May 7, and will continue through October. Hours are 9-1. We're planning on being there each week for this market, but if we aren't there, stop by nearby New Concord at Buttonwood Market. She carries all of our varieties in her store.

Of course our Saturday's are spent in Marietta at our regular, weekly farm market. It has been a busy place too!

Our local paper had an article on us, and you can see it if you go to our facebook page. The link is at the very bottom of this blog. Martha Ackerman came out and interviewed us last month, and she did a great job writing the article.

I was also featured in the Guernsey Co. newspaper as the featured market vendor, along with my favorite recipe we use with our cheese.

So far we have 5 batches of cheese made, 2 batches of a new cheese called Summer Swiss. It will be ready by July-August. We'll be doing Hill Folk Jersey on Tuesday of this coming week. So excited to see our walk in cooler filling up. So many orders coming in lately, that we're watching the shelves become empty. Good problem to have, though!

Stop by one of the markets or visit us on Facebook or our website!
