Farm Dinners as art and cheese of the week

Posted 8/28/2009 11:12am by Leslie Cooperband or Wes Jarrell.
Molly Rygg, our assistant cheesemaker, vegetable garden tender, and chef extraordinaire had her sister, Sarah, visit us for one of our farm dinners this year and she took some beautiful black and white photos of the dinner and the goats that I thought I would share with you.

This week we are featuring our aged cheeses at the farmers' markets. We have the full repertoire: Angel Food, Little Bloom on the Prairie, Ewe Bloom, Krotovina, Roxanne and Moonglo. You can find full descriptions of these cheeses on our website.  Enjoy any of these cheeses on some rustic farmers' market bread, accompanied by local honey or fruit preserves.  Or, how about a simple pizza with shaved Roxanne or Moonglo, local cherry tomatoes and chopped fresh basil!! Of course, we have fresh chevre and some of our mouton frais, the fresh sheep milk cheese that tastes like mascarpone.  We are attending four markets this weekend: Bloomington, Urbana, Green City Market and Oak Park.  We look forward to seeing you there.
