This Week at Peaceful Heart Farm:
Spring is coming on faster and faster. This time of year it seems like time speeds up and it’s hard to get everything done between dawn and dusk. I have potatoes, Chinese cabbages and onions to get in the garden. Oh, I almost forgot about the strawberries. Those need to get in the ground also. It’s going to be a fun and productive week around here.
I’m so excited to share the Farm News from this week.

Peaceful Heart FarmCast
I had a great time recording this week’s podcast. I love sharing the history of how we human beings made it to this point in our evolution. It’s amazing that we survived. Please enjoy this week’s topic: What Does It Mean to “Get in Touch with the Land?”
This is a peaceful and philosophical one, so LISTEN TO THE EPISODE HERE. Or, if you have an Alexa device, just say: “Alexa, play podcast Peaceful Heart FarmCast.”
Grilled Cheese Sandwich: If you’re going to enjoy cheese, I can think of no better way than melted on some toasted bread slathered with butter. A grilled cheese sandwich is simple to make but improvements can always be made. This recipe will give you the confidence to make your grilled cheese sandwich spectacular. Here are four tips for making that perfect grilled cheese sandwich even better.
Home Made Butter: There’s nothing more satisfying than knowing you can take control of your family’s nutritional needs — not depending on your local supermarket. Making your own butter is just one way to instill that peace.
Mary Randolph’s Cornmeal Bread: In Colonial America food was prepared with similar ingredients, but the method of cooking was vastly different. This recipe contains instructions for hearthside baking.
Crème Fraîche: Similar to sour cream but not at all the same, this recipe provides a glimpse of how traditional cheese is made. It’s quick and it’s easy. Use it in any setting where you would use sour cream.
Cheese in the News
I sure hope so. This article is a bit of a downer. Lot’s of farmers have given up hope of ever making their dairy operations profitable. It does take a lot of money and know-how to operate a creamery. Personally, I have a great deal of hope. There is a great movement toward locally produced food. I want to be part of it and hope you do to.
The cheese tea is simple. Tea with a sour cream floater. What do you think?
OMG I’ve got to make these.
