Locavore Delivery & Dee Creek Farm News - 5.28.2009

Here's this week's Locavore Farm Delivery list from Dee Creek Farm. Stop using that tired old cream cheese, and pick up a container or two of Dee Creek's chevre. Your bagel and your tummy will thank you!

The concert was a blast! We counted about 80 people there, which was just right. The weather was perfect, the singer was fabulous (as always). I'll post pictures soon, but am super tired for tonight.

For anyone looking for beef in the next couple of weeks, let me know. One of my friends has a couple they're ready to harvest soon, and I believe they're grassfed exclusively. Can you get you info.

See you Thursday! ~S


Dee Creek Farm Cheeses, from start to finish
The containers we've been using have grooves that seem to be stealing all of the cheese (or leave us all licking the containers out instead of being polite and adult-like), so by consumer demand and desire to consume all of the cheese that we can, we're using clear, round tubs now, which are excellent for reusing for food storage as well! They look smaller, but don't let that fool you - they carry the same amount of cheese we've been sharing.

Plain - block or crumble
Marinated - cubes - in olive oil with Garden Delight herbs
