New producer: Cowslip Creamery

We have a new cheese producer this month! Here's a bit about Cowslip Creamery:

Cowslip Creamery is nestled in a lovely outbuilding on picturesque Lubbers Family Farm along the Grand River in West Michigan. Our creamery makes cheese the old fashioned way, by hand, using fresh milk from the herd of cows grazing on this farm and other small farms. Lubbers Family Farm embraces the fertility of the earth it is rooted in and honors the abundance it provides.

Cowslip Creamery is selling phocas cheese this month. Click here to check it out.

New Producer: Saskatoon Project Midwest

Never heard of a saskatoon berry? Well, here's some information about them from our new producer, Saskatoon Project Midwest:

Saskatoon berries are a native plant to North America. They are a relative of the apple and resemble a blueberry in size and shape. Their flavor has been compared to a number of different fruits but in our opinion they taste like a cross between an apple and a blackberry with slight almond finish (from the seeds). These berries are extremely high in antioxidants and have been compared to a pomegranate because of this. They are also higher in potassium, fiber, and protein than other berry fruits and have high levels of vitamin A and iron as well.

Saskatoons are very versatile and can be used in many different ways. They are a great pie fruit because they retain their shape when they are cooked. They are also very good in sauces for meats, jams & jellies, cocktails, smoothies, muffins, etc.
