Even though the official start of summer is about a month away, we're getting a jump-start on the summer this week.  Starting this Wednesday, May 13th (through the end of August), we will host a weekly farm "open house" from 4-6 pm.  You can visit the farm, stroll the grounds, blow kisses to the goats and enjoy an array of farm products from our farm and others.  We'll have:
  • Cheese: fresh chevre, bloomy rinds, feta, Moonglo
  • Gelato (by the scoop and pint BOTH)
  • House-made crackers
  • Goat milk caramels
  • Bread and baked goods by Stewart's Artisan Breads
  • Artisan sausages by Piedmonte Sausage Co. (he's introducing a new line of chicken sausages this week in addition to the pork sausages we've been carrying)
  • Pasture-raised eggs and poussin (young chickens similar in size to Cornish Hens) by Seven Sisters Farm
  • Organic veggies by Tomahnous Farm and Heirloominous Farm
  • Knife Sharpening by the now famous Laurence "The Knife Dude"

On Friday, May 15th, we'll host of our first "Third Friday Pop-Up" of the season.  From 5:30-7:30 pm, we'll be serving up southern foods with a Midwest twist.  Guests will be serenaded by "The Young and the Fretless." For the full mouth-watering menu and all the details, visit our website.

We have more art work adorning our barn dining room walls now.  In addition to the luscious watercolors by Cara Cummings (see the pear above), we now have surreal nature photography by Lance Merry.  His work showcases the natural world in our midst; terrestrial orchids, fresh water fish and amphibians. You'll be amazed by the beautiful creatures right in our prairie back yard.  


You can just enjoy these pieces, but they are also for sale.  We look forward to seeing you AT THE FARM this week.
