Boy, Puxatawny Phil really does know what he's talking about!! Hope you are all managing to stay safe and warm through the storms!
All of us here at Maysie's Farm just returned from the PASA conference (Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture) and received some mid- winter inspiration to continue to lead by example and spread the word that our future really depends upon sustainable farming practices! It is not just a conference for farmers. PASA's membership also consists of educators, activists, consumers and foodies!! If you wish to learn more about the organization, visit their website at www.pasafarming.org.
CSA for Cheese Lovers:
Catherine and Al Renzi of Yellow Springs Farm Native Plants raise Nubian goats on their property. They have been producing artisanal cheeses made with the nutrient rich goat milk and are offering a Cheese CSA this season.
Members of the CSA will receive their goat cheese 2 times per month. The assortment of cheese typically includes 3 varieties totaling 12-14 ounces. The varieties include both fresh pasteurized cheeses and aged raw milk cheeses.
Maysie's Farm is proud to be a delivery location for these cheeses. If you are interested in becoming a part of the cheese CSA, please visit Yellow Springs Farm's website at www.yellowspringsfarm.com. There you will find information regarding the CSA share.
If you do choose to join, please join directly with Yellow Springs, and we will work out the delivery dates directly with them.
Jenkins Arboretum has also agreed to be a delivery location and we have arranged it so that the cheese will be available at Jenkins on Tuesday afternoons. If you pick up your vegetables at Jenkins, you will also conveniently be able to pick up your cheese!
