We now have the summer we've been asking for--full throttle heat and humidity and no rain for over a week.  The weather is perfect for a cool salad with cheese AND some peach cobbler with gelato for dessert.  Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery can make all that happen for you this week. 
First, Tuesday, July 28th from 4-7PM, we'll be attending The Land Connection's Downtown Champaign Farmers' Market.  We've got cheese:

  • Fresh chevre
  • Feta
  • Ricotta
  • Black Goat--it's ripe and ready to slather on a baguette from Pekara bakery
  • Angel Food
  • Little Bloom on the Prairie
  • Moonglo 
  • Huckleberry Blue

We even have a few bags of crackers to go with the cheese.

We've got gelato:

  • Fresh mint
  • Thai Basil
  • Salted Caramel Swirl
  • Vanilla 
  • Chocolate
  • Plum Sorbetto
  • Sangria Sorbetto

We've got organic peaches--they are soooo juicy and sweet. I've been slicing them into a bowl, topping them with a scoop of gelato and giving my mouth a summer version of heaven.  

Wednesday, July 29th: Summer Open House: 4:00-6:00 PM

Of course, we'll have the usual offerings of cheese, gelato (follow us on Facebook to get updates on the flavors by the scoop this week), crackers and caramels. We'll also be selling pastured eggs and chicken from Seven Sisters Garden and sausages from Piemonte Sausage.  

The usual "suspects" will be here too:

Tomahnous Farm with summer veggies and BLUEBERRIES--how about a peach-blueberry crisp for dessert??

Heirloominous Farm will have summer veggies too.

Stewart's Artisan Breads will have rustic breads, bagels, cookies and granola.

Laurence. the Knife Dude. will be available to sharpen your knives while you shop and visit the farm. 

The "peach" de resistence: U-Pick peaches from 2-6 PM.  We will also be selling firsts and seconds for those who don't want to pick.
