Community Supported Cheese JUNE: Meadowood Farms

JUNE 2016 Selection : Ledyard & Strawbridge

Pick up Party Date: Thursday, June 23rd. 6:30pm at Cyril's.

The Basics:

This month we will enjoy TWO cheeses- both from Meadowood Farm in New York State. Ledyard is made with sheep milk, has a lovely wrinkly rind, soft center, and a gorgeous leafy wrapping. Strawbridge is kind of like an American unicorn- it is a little bloomy rinded, lactic sheep milk cheese.

Meadowood Farms is in Madison County New York (no, not the one with the bridges). They keep a flock of East Friesian sheep whose milk all goes into producing farmstead cheese, and they purchase cow milk from a nearby farm with a herd of Holsteins. Our friend Veronica Pedraza is the cheesemaker, she worked in restaurant kitchens before transitioning to rural life and learning the art and science of cheesemaking alongside some of the best American producers- Georgia's Sweet Grass Dairy, and Vermont's Jasper Hill Farm.

These cheeses don't make it to Portland so this is a special treat. They are coming to us on an airplane- and I get to pick them up at the airport myself in a few short weeks. Please join us so you get to taste and even take home some of these treasures and to learn about the logistics of cheese in our gigantic country! 

Pick up Party: Thursday, June 23rd. 6:30pm at Cyril's.
