It's strawberry season here in Central Illinois and we've been busy processing local strawberries from Carrie's Garden of Eatin' and Meyer Farm into strawberry gelato. You can get in on the first strawberry gelato of the season made fresh tomorrow at our Wednesday Open House: 4:00-6:00 pm. We'll also have salted caramel swirl, vanilla and fresh mint for hand-dipped scoops as well as pints of several other flavors.

We'll also have plenty of cheese for you to try--fresh chevre, fresh ricotta and several bloomy rind cheeses.  Don't forget some house-made crackers and jams to go with those cheeses and satiate your sweet tooth with goat milk caramels.   

Our farmer friends and food artisans will be here too with gorgeous veggies and hearty breads--Tomahnous Farm, Heirloominous Farm and Stewart's Artisan Breads.  You can also purchase incredibly yellow and delicious pasture-raised eggs from Seven Sisters Farm (Sidney) and authentic sausages from Piedmonte Sausage (Champaign).  Laurence the Knife Dude will be here to sharpen your knives while you shop and visit the farm.  He's taking a long summer vacation for the next two weeks, so if you have a bunch of dull knives, bring them out to the farm tomorrow.  

Come meet the newest arrivals to the farm--the last kids of the season born last week to Liberty and Viviane:  If you missed your newborn goat kid fix earlier, now's your chance.  Their cuteness never gets old.

You can also see the baby peaches swelling on the peach trees--looks like we'll be having u-pick peaches in mid to late July!
