Latest News from the Farm
Just found out from friends that our cheese wheel sign at the end of the driveway on Route 206 is a PokemonGo stop!
We are kind of excited about that… but please, do be safe if you are playing the game. Come into the driveway and walk back to the sign. Route 206 is very busy and we are right by the curve.
Let us know which Pokemon you catch! #pokemonatcherrygrovefarm
Calves are lounging about everywhere. The mini cow cute factor is through the roof and OUTTA control. The milk is nearly double what it was a month ago and continuing to climb. We have added additional cheesemakes into the rotation and have been capitalizing on the milk quality to make tommes for the holidays and Havilah for the 2017 & 18 horizon.
I am loving the golden milk and myriad straight-from-pasture flavors grass-fed milk provides. Summer life, and tastes, are sweet and good.
“Dishing Up New Jersey” Locavore Farm Dinner
Friday, July 8th
This summer we mark ten years making aged farmstead cheeses. In that time, we have benefited from the expertise of dedicated farmers moving us to a grass-based model, and fine cheesemakers refining recipes and improving our facilities.
We could think of no better way to celebrate our milestone anniversary than by collaborating with some of our favorite local foodsmiths on a farm dinner, designed by local food artisans for local food enthusiasts.
John Holl, NJ food journalist and beer enthusiast is a partner in this event, and will be on hand signing his newest cookbook, “Dishing Up New Jersey”, which features many of our favorite local chef’s and food producers (and our dinner collaborators).
Dine garden-side at the farm with:
Chef Renato of 12 Farms Restaurant in Hightstown,
Barbara Simpson of Muirhead Foods,
Marilyn Besner of Wildflour Bakery and Cafe,
Gabriel and Matt Carbone of The Bent Spoon,
David Zaback at Z Food Farm, and
Mikey Azzarra of Zone 7.
The evening will include a four-course chef’s menu, farm tour, book signing, cheese and beer tasting, and time to enjoy warm summer breezes and the nightly sunset. Cherry Grove Farm cheeses and whey-fed pork will be featured. (There will be a prize for most creative place setting!)
