As we get busier we are always looking for ways to make things go smoother and easier, right? Well that is what I thought I was doing back in March just as the cows were calving and we were covered up with work. Let's simplify our bookkeeping I thought to myself, and thought joining forces with Barn2Door was the next best move for our fast growing little business. After all they would take care of inventory, pick lists, place the orders online, send out emails ect. ect. They didn't realize that I have no time to devote to learning new tricks especially if it involves this computer which as you all know I've not had access to since the first of April, when mine crashed. I'm getting things back a piece at a time. Still no excel spreadsheets. They were lost so recreating that aspect is taking time. But what I've realized is the new system is not working for me and as of today it is no longer a viable way to place your order. Please go to our products page look over what you want on a weekly basis and pay for it at the bottom using Venmo. The Pay Now button will take you right there. You of course can still pay with cash or check. To pay online please use the Venmo ap downloaded on your phone. And note what you are paying for or send me a text at 272-5334. You monthly orderers already know what to do. Venmo just gives you the opportunity to pay online with your phone. Thank you once again for your continued support and business.
Kris for Diamond S Dairy
Happy June, Everyone! May was certainly a busy one for us here at Diamond S and especially complicated with the fact that none of our computers have been working correctly. This has made communication extremely difficult. So if you have attempted to email us and not heard back, we are sincerely sorry!! Hopefully the computer issues will be behind us soon and we'll be back up and running online 100%!
While we wait for our technology to catch up to us, check out below to see the cool new Western themed names for our dairy products and when they're scheduled to be available. To order, keep an eye on our Barn2Door site and claim when you see it. Take note: overall milk consumption is going up throughout the summer and the results leave us less milk to use for making other dairy products. So jump on it when you see the ordering window open!
Cowboy Cheddar - 16# available mid June
Phoebe's Marinated Feta - 6 quarts left to be claimed for this month
Cattle Kate Dream Cheese - 1 quart
Happy Trails Halloumi (our grillin' cheese") - 3 pounds
Chuckwagon Chive with Garlic - July sometime
Saddlestring Swiss - 10 pounds ready at the end of July
Cactus Jack - 12 pounds ready July & 9 pounds more available August
And our newest addition:
Bitsy's Best Butter
Named after our sweet little Jersey milking heifer, this butter made with our A2 Whipping cream which has been cultured for 24 hours, chilled, then churned into our Bunkhouse Cultured Butter. To that we added all organic ingredients - olive oil, garlic, chives, basil and thyme.
Doesn't that just sound delicious? It's perfect on toasted sourdough bread with a slice of Saddlestring Swiss, great added to a good steak as it's coming off the grill or on those fresh veggies coming out of the garden.
Be sure to check out our store link here to see what's available. And don't forget to claim your Lemon Yogurt for June delivery. All orders go out for delivery on Thursday's or are ready for you to pick up at the Hyattville Dairy on Friday's!!
As always, we are so thankful for your continued support of our little dairy!

A family favorite is Halloumi a cheese many of you have tried. We have been calling it Grilling Cheese because it doesn't melt, so you can throw it on the grill with a steak or burger and then slice it up to share with everyone. Or cut in cubes and fry with potatoes and onions for a great side dish. We had an extra 3 gallons of milk this week so made a small batch of this yummy Grilling Cheese. We had 2 packages left that were unclaimed as of delivery on Thursday. So, if you're lucky, they might still be in our little Worland "store"! Sold in vacuum sealed bags with two round patties per package. Average weight is 10 to 12 oz per package, priced $9.75 each.
Remember Dream Cheese ready for delivery 1st week of May. We will begin making quart bottles next week, $20 each quart. Approximately 2 of the little dream balls will provide you with your daily needs of probiotics. A great way to improve your gut microbiome. This is supporting your digestion naturally, with a natural gut support supplement in the form of a good for you food. Spread it on a cracker, or vegetable or piece of sourdough bread. Order today! If you don't recall what Dream Cheese is all about, watch the video in our Blog from March 12.
Second week of May is Marinated Feta - Still have a few quarts not spoken for.
Our Diamond S Delights Store will be live with the help of Barn2Door next week. We will offer Dairy Bundles as well as all our regular products individually ordered. If you order a dairy bundle of your choice $50 or more there will be no delivery charges to our two drop locations in TenSleep and Worland. Our prices are now being shown on our website without delivery fees. We are hoping this is simpler for all of us.
Please text or call me if you have any concerns or questions, any time. Thank you all for your business!
