A farm that makes cheese and not just any cheese. Taylor farm is the only farm in Vermont making Gouda cheese. The 35 dairy cows keep the farm helpers busy from dawn to dusk and the result is flavorful creamy gouda. We tasted and savored the good times.
|Taylor Farm, Londonderry Vermont.|
|Cheese molds stacked high awaiting fresh curds. |
These will be lined with cheese cloth and packed
with cheese curds. Then stacked on top of each other and weighted down.
|The cheese making room at Taylor Farm is active Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.|
|The Taylor Farm store is filled with lots of fresh cheese made on the farm. |
I found a nettle gouda that is made in small seasonal batches sold only
locally. The store also sells all kinds of delicious Vermont foods.
|Curious and loving farm dogs.|
|We tasted the Taylor Farm aged gouda. The wheels of cheese age for 1 1/2 years.|
|We graciously accepted an invitation to stay for dinner.|
|Delicious food and great conservation were abundant.|
|On Saturday a full house sat and listened as I talked |
Thanksgiving cooking at the J.K Adams Kitchen Store in
Dorset Vermont. The class was held in the factory
where they make all kinds of quality wood kitchen products.
We had fun!
Back at home on Sunday we picked up our first winter
Community Supported Agriculture from Jericho Settlers Farm.
|The potatoes varieties at Jericho Settlers Farm made the chef|
in me smile and want to get cooking.
|The CSA pick up is every two weeks and the directions are very clear as what|
to take for the farm share you have chosen. The list of benefits from eating local
farm fresh foods really adds to my joy of cooking.
|Sunday supper tasted so fresh and healthy.|
|Back at home laying out the vegetables and making menu plans.|
|Pumpkins seeds that I roasted with maple syrup |
and sea salt, crunchy, sweet, and very seasonal.
