• What’s happening on the farm?

    Posted on August 29, 2018 by in Uncategorized

    Needed:  plastic shopping bags

    The farm store is almost out of plastic shopping bags.  If you’ve got a stash piling up in your kitchen, please bring them to the farm the next time you come.  We (and your fellow customers) really appreciate it!

    Ahh, lovely cheeses

    We’re in the heart of cheesemaking season, and there are few things more satisfying than turning JakoPure milk into rich, golden cheese wheels.  Pictured above are wheels of freshly waxed Parmesan, which will age in cold storage for two years before appearing in the farm store for you to enjoy.  These– like all JakoPure cheeses– are made in small artesinal batches so you might notice slight color and texture variations  from batch to batch.

    Can you find the sheep?

    We moved the sheep to a new pasture this week, and the grass is so tall it nearly hides them!  They couldn’t care less whether or not they see the sky, but it does look funny to see them nearly disappear into the landscape.  There’s a whole flock grazing out there if only we could see them!

    Speaking of all this green grass, you can taste it

    This is an August like we don’t often see!  We’ve had more rain and more grass growth than we saw in the early spring, which is pretty unusual.  You might have tasted the difference, too.  The greener and healthier the pasture grasses, the more nutrition–and flavor– is in the milk.  You might notice that the fresh milk has a richer flavor right now, and that explains it!
