Greetings Market Friends,
regular routine. The "girls," (our ewes) are completely trained to the milking
parlor now and look forward to coming in for their twice daily milking. Our new
grazing system is beginning to show its benefits: we have lots of new native
prairie grasses and clover popping up all over (the plentiful rain we've been
having helps too!) This Saturday we will have a variety of cheeses including some
young Dirt Lover and Woolly Rind and some well aged ones too. We also expect to
have more of our Blue Bossa. And, of course, all of our flavors of Fresh
(including Rosemary- for all those of you who have been waiting for this flavor
to make a reappearance)
our recent events at the farm and an album with pictures of Sarah's cheese making
trip to France. If you are not a Facebook subscriber you can view the photos at
this link: http://www.facebook.com/album.
This week at market we'll have the most amazingly sweet red, yellow and red onions, piles of colorful potatoes, crisp nutritious swiss chard and kale, zucchini by the ton, cucumbers, sweet crisp cabbage, and finally - some tomatoes. There will be lots of other things too - stop by to see what we've found.
Laine and his wife Lena will be manning the fort again. (Jim and I will be sleeping in and enjoying a slower day here on the farm). Stop by and speak a little Danish to them - and buy a bunch of veggies!
Hope Saturday is a great day!
Robbins and Jim
Lena and Laine - the best little Danish farm hands in Missouri!
