Farmstead Cheese

It is official after a long two years we are making farmstead cheese!

On April 15, 2013 the farm pasteurized 55 gallons of milk from their own cows to processes into Cheese. The Milk separated into curds and whey after adding the cultures and on the 16th they made their first batch of farmstead Ayrshire Fresh Farmers’ Cheese. The cheese is a soft spreadable cheese similar to a cream cheese or sour cream. It is perfect for bagels, crackers, chips, backed potatoes and much more.

DSC_0106_fsThe cheese is available in a variety of flavors. The Plain cheese will have no added flavor except for salt as natural preservative. Our Herb and Garlic cheese is a combination of thyme, parsley and garlic mixed throughout. One will have Chives on the outside allowing the flavor to permeate the cheese. The Cracked Black Pepper cheese will be similar only with cracked black pepper on the outside. The last flavor that is available at this time is Bari. This flavor has sun dried tomatoes, basil, garlic, parsley and thyme all mixed right into the cheese.
Cheese will be available to Home delivery customers, at farmers markets and soon through the web site.

Farm Raised Pork

Fresh pork raised here on the farm and USDA approved!

The swine program on the farm has been gaining ground over the past four years. It all started with raising two pigs for our own consumption and has progressed to breeding and raising pigs for customers. In the past we have custom raised pigs for our customers, and as roasters. Last year was the first year that sold pork sausage by the pound and it was a hit!

Over the winter two litters were born and we sold all but three of the piglets. The remaining three piglets are Berkshire pigs, known for their meat quality. The pigs are pasture raised and fed bread, grain, fruits and vegetables along with the whey from the cheese plant. We will have available at the market this year: bacon, ham stakes, and sausage. We offer a variety of sausage: Sweet Italian, Hot Italian, Chorizo, Kielbasa, and Breakfast.
