Moonglo makes its summer debut

Moonglo cheese
We know it's truly summer when we taste the Moonglo and decide that it is ripe enough for sale. This is the weekend. We'll be attending three farmers' markets on Saturday, July 9th: Urbana, Bloomington and Oak Park, and we cut several wheels of this firm and tangy cheese for you to enjoy. It tastes great with a tart jam (how about making some jam with all the local raspberries or cherries that are beginning to appear at the farmers' markets?) and some crusty bread.
We've got lots of other cheeses for our market goers this Saturday as well:
  • plenty of fresh chevre
  • Angel Food
  • Smoked Angel Food--it's back--the applewood smoked brie style cheese
  • Little Bloom on the Prairie
  • Ewe Bloom
  • BABY ewe bloom (bite sized rounds perfect for topping a salad)
  • Black Sheep
  • BABY black sheep (same deal as baby ewe bloom--you can eat it almost in one bite)
  • Huckleberry Blue--our raw goat milk blue, supply is limited so enjoy it while it lasts
  • Mollisol Pecorino--our raw sheep milk grating style cheese

We have LOTS of gelato and sorbetto for the Urbana Farmers' Market goers--lots of new fruit flavors to try.  Wes and Stewart got a little carried away with their "experiments" this week.  We've all taste tested them (of course), and they're all really delicious.

Things are really picking up with our Tuesday afternoon mini-farmers' market-open house (3 to 7PM). This coming Tuesday, July 12th, we'll have plenty of cheese and gelato for you as well as Pekara Bakehouse goodies. Blue Moon Farm's bounty is flourishing, so they've resumed their pre-ordering system to ensure that they pick just the right amount of fresh produce for this mid-week market. They plan to be at our farm only from 3-5PM, so please come early if you want veggies. To access their ordering system, go to:
They will also bring extra of the following:
