Night Sky Farm annouces a new cheese for the 2011 Farmer’s Markets!! COSMIC GOUDA is a fresh 100% Jersey Cow Milk Cheese with awesome flavor! I wish I had an aging room or cave to age this cheese for 60 days because it would enhance the flavors even more! But, I don’t have that ability as yet, so a fresh cheese it will be.
Cosmic Gouda, as do all our fresh pressed cheeses, comes to you cut in 5 oz. pieces which are vacuum sealed to extend shelf life and preserve freshness. Right now, Cosmic Gouda will be in limited quantities until later in the season, but Hat Creek Cheddar and Sugar Hill Harvarti in all their varieties from the herbed, dill and spicy pepper flavors, will be available most market days. I think you will be very pleased and impressed with our new Cosmic Gouda.
We will also have available Goat Butter, sold in 4 oz. bars and later in the summer, Cow Butter and our Blended Goat/Cow Butter, the best of both worlds. This is not your ordinary butter, not meant for cooking or baking. I call my butter “table” butter meant to grace your table for spreading on crusty french bread or a flakey croissant.
Our Farmer’s Markets kick off on Friday, April 1 with the Chesterfield Farmer’s Market at the Chesterfield Town Center from 9 – 1pm. and on Saturday, April 2 at the Brandermill Green Market 10 – 2pm. The Brandermill Market is in the Shopping Center on 360W (Hull Street) at the 288 inter change. From Richmond it will be on the right before 288 and from the west, you will have to go up and then U-turn on to 360W and then it will be on the right. Please come and see me at either market and check out all of our wonderful cheeses, goat milk bath/body products and WASH TIME Eco-Friendly Laundry Soap.We will be vending theere for the month of March and posssibly throughout the season.
On Saturday, April 16, Night Sky Farm will be present at the 3rd GREEN SPRING EXPO on Healthy Living held at the Armory in Lynchburg, VA. 9 – 4pm. This should be a fun filled event for everyone with plenty of local food to buy and sample, music and demonstrations. This is the event to attend to find out what farms are producing in your area, where to find local foods and services, and to meet the folks that make it happen. Between the famer’s markets and the many Springtime events being held throughout the area, there will be plenty of opportunity to come out and show your support for sustainable agriculture and local producers. Our 2011 Farmer’s MArket schedule is not yet finalized, but this is what is confirmed right now: we will be in Newport News on Wednesdays at the Port Warwick Farmer’s Market, in Chesterfield on Fridays, a new farmer’s market in Forest on Saturdays, and at Goochland, VA two Saturdays, South of the James Farmer’s Market on 2 Saturdays. Yikes! I am all over the Commonwealth getting our fabulous products out to you and now you all need to come out and support these markets and keep them alive and vibrant! The exact dates for the Saturday markets still need to be mapped out, but this is the plan. I will be including the schedule in the next Night Sky Farm newsletter and if you have not yet signed up to recieve one, please click on the box above. It will take you to our sign up page.
