June is National Dairy Month, so support your local dairy farm and come out for a taste of our handcrafted cheeses!
Did you know that our raw milk cheeses have about 7g of protein in every ounce? That’s more than an egg! Cheese can be a great way to stay nourished on the go. Pack cubed cheese for a high protein snack in your busy day. Two ounces of cheese cubes with a cup of fresh berries can provide a tasty and satisfying breakfast at just under 300 calories and over 14g of protein. (and by the way it is just about blueberry season!)
Each ounce of our delicious cheese also delivers about 20% of daily calcium needs. Dairy products are the number one source of calcium in the American diet according to the National Dairy Council. Cheese is a great calcium rich option for just about everyone. Harder cheeses, such as our Havilah, pack a punch of calcium and are naturally low in lactose.
And the best part? By eating local, sustainably produced cheese like ours you are not only doing something wholesome for you, the environment is made healthier, too.
So show your support and come out to our farm store or catch us at a farmer’s market near you. We are at Playwicki, Bordentown, Monroe at Margate, Lower Makefield, Highland Park, Metuchen, and West Windsor markets weekly. Our award winning cheese has also been featured at the Williams-Sonoma in Philly this past Saturday. Check out our Local Shops page for a full listing of where to buy.
Need to get the kids out of the house? Bring them to the farm! Stop by our farm for an educational opportunity: our cows are milked at 4 o’clock every afternoon and our milking parlor and cheese making facilities have viewing areas. A great way to learn see firsthand the process from the cows in the pasture to the cheese on the plate.
