This is the debut issue of the fresh dairy update, just to keep
everybody informed about the treasures that populate my walk-in
cooler. Sure, they’re used to playing second fiddle to the cheese,

Indian Run Farm Free Range Eggs:

I had to round out the fresh milk trifecta and get some goat milk.
What can I say? I just flat out love it.
Also back in action starting next week:
Evans Farmhouse Crème Fraîche and Evans Farmhouse Butter
