We’re one week closer to having that cheese ready for you. Are you excited. I sure am. We have made some great improvements to our process and these cheeses are going to knock your socks off.
Our traditional techniques for making our hand-made, small batch cheeses makes all the difference in the world. The flavor will light up your tongue.
Soon cheese will be a choice for what your herd is producing. Cheese will be available year-round. Fresh products such as milk and yogurt are only available during the milking season, 1st of May through last of October.
Herd Share product deliveries are being fulfilled every Saturday at the Wytheville Farmer’s Market. Pick up at the farm is also an option.
Send me an email with your desire to participate or if you have questions.

Peaceful Heart FarmCast
This week I’m giving you insight into how I use the keto way of eating. It all started back in October 2018. I’m so happy to have finally found a solution to the health issues that have been piling up for years. Weight, arthritis, high blood pressure and so much more have all improved dramatically since I eliminated most of the carbohydrates from my diet.
Dairy has some carbohydrates so it’s not an all-you-can-eat option. In moderation, it’s a great part of the ketogenic way of eating.
I want to follow up on a previous FarmCast, The Taste of Cheese where I talked about developing your expertise with using descriptive words. The FREE downloads of Classifying Cheese by Type and Category and Expand Your Cheese Vocabulary are still available at our website. Please stop by and get your FREE resources.
You can LISTEN TO THE PODCAST HERE. Or, if you have an Alexa device, just say: “Alexa, play podcast Peaceful Heart FarmCast.”

Keto Chocolate Ice Cream: Just in time for your 4th of July Independence Day celebration. There is nothing better than a cold dish of ice cream with friends and family. Use our wonderful A2A2 cream with this recipe.
Dairy, used properly, can be a great part of a ketogenic diet. I love my ice cream. This recipe does not use an ice cream maker. With egg whites and heavy whipping cream whipped to soft peaks, the result is similar to a fluffy chocolate mousse.
Parmesan Peas: Peas are not exactly peace but close. Especially peas straight out of the garden. And don’t forget that wonderful cheese. You can use frozen peas if you need to. However, this time of year, fresh peas make all the difference in the world.
Let that flavor of fresh Parmesan peas bring peace to your tongue and tummy. This recipe calls for fresh, but feel free to use frozen in the off season. If you don’t have Parmesan, try another cheese that grates well. Be creative and use what you have on hand.
Gourmet Chevon (or other ground meat) Burgers: Try gourmet chevon burgers instead of hamburgers. Goat is the most widely consumed meat in the world. Our goats graze in the pasture for their entire life. It makes succulent chevon patties and a great addition to a paleo or keto diet plan.
Our chevon meat is processed at a local USDA inspected facility. It is ground and then frozen in vacuum sealed bags.
Traditional Kefir: Kefir is a fermented milk drink similar to a thin yogurt that is made from kefir grains, a specific type of mesophilic symbiotic culture. The drink originated in the Caucasus, Eastern Europe and Russia, where it is prepared by inoculating cow, goat, or sheep milk with kefir grains. These instructions will be for cow’s milk kefir.
