This week, we made butter and decided to make compound butter using fresh parsley and basil. We are super excited to see how well it turns out!
Reminder: Feta orders will be delivered on Tuesday!
Hope everyone has a great Mother's Day and everyone is staying safe and healthy!
Over the last eight years (the years we have been milking since moving to Hyattville 26 years ago, and sharing with those that want to drink Raw A2 milk & eat the other healthy products we’ve created from the milk) Diamond S Delights has made numerous products, from fresh milk, cream & butter to fermented drinks, hard and soft aged cheeses, fresh pressed and stretched cheeses. The little farm business is growing to a point of one person not being able to handle all of it themselves. With that said, in the past couple weeks we’ve had several; both from Worland and TenSleep offer to make our deliveries. Worland deliveries are Tuesdays, at Bee Healthy. If we need to add a day or change the day we will, so please communicate what day of the week works best for you. TenSleep deliveries are Thursday, at TenSleep Vet Clinic. Get in touch ASAP to be back on our list.
Our list of products will be very slim for now. So far 5 of our 7 girls have calved and are milking, but we are sharing our precious milk with 7 calves. We have had 9 sets of twins this calving season, with less than 100 beef cows left to calve. Please let me know if your needs have changed from November, and if you are ready to be back on our weekly delivery schedule. Our supply of milk is still limited somewhat so first come first serve.
Below is our daily product list:
With the recent and ongoing health scare, we are reserving milk each day to make kefir. Kefir is said to have 30 times the amount of beneficial bacteria & enzymes of yogurt and many more strains that help our digestive systems. Lots of you have already been drinking our kefir for years. Let's hear from some of you and get you started back on a weekly delivery! Help and share with everyone we care about & get them drinking a healthy fermented drink of kefir for their digestive systems and to keep us healthy and thriving. If there is anything we can help you with please let us know.
In the past few years many of you have visited our ranch dairy and joined us either making cheese, sourdough bread, sauerkraut or sharing in many lost and traditional methods of cooking. This spring sometime in April we have been asked to participate with PBS Wyoming in a fresh cheese and fermented milk presentation, that should be televised sometime in 2020. We will keep our weekly clients updated on when this will take place and invite you to share with us in the process. It promises to be a good learning process for all. We hope you will join us. In the mean time, lets get you back on your raw milk products.
Posts from now on will be delivered via text with a Facebook post of any extras weekly.
As Craft's wonderful garden produce comes to an end, we at Diamond S will still be delivering to Worland and TenSleep every Monday and Thursday. We would love to add you to our regular list of weekly deliveries.
Monday July 1st along with our regular deliveries we also will have little treats for anyone that wants Kefir Cream Cheese great for dipping veggies or crackers. Send me a text to reserve yours. A gift from Diamond S Delights thanking you all for ordering weekly with us. We deliver regular orders of milk, kefir, yogurt, butter and cheese to Bee Healthy and also to our frig at the Powell Vet Clinic in TenSleep, also available for pickup in Hyattville at our ranch store. Get on our list and enjoy Raw A2 dairy delights. Text orders to 307-272-5334. Have a great 4th of July.
*No deliveries on Thursday the 4th.

Monterrey Jack Cheese available - Tuesday May 28th thru Thursday May 30th
This kind of cheese originated along the central California coast and has become popular throughout the United States. Although it was inspired by European cheeses, it’s one of the few cheeses which can rightfully be called “American”. It was actually developed before California became a U.S. state, and it has a long and colorful history. Franciscan monks in monasteries around the Monterrey region first made the cheese in the 1700’s, creating a cheese that is aged only briefly before being served.
This cow’s milk cheese is semi-firm with a creamy, mild flavor and high moisture content. Mexican-and Spanish inspired cuisine in California often use Monterrey Jack. The cheese melts very well, making it quite suitable for grilled cheese sandwiches.
Sixty four pounds of milk was turned into Monterrey Jack cheese and one 8 pound wheel will be cut and packaged and saved for those of you interested in this fresh cheese. Please message me 307-272-5334 if interested and a package will be marked with your name and left in the frig for you Tuesday May 28 or Thursday May 30th. Package sizes vary in price from $4.50 to $7.50.
If you can use some sweet whey for any of your cooking needs please order a quart or ½ gallon and bring a clean jar of the quantity you can use to take whey home each time we have some available at no charge if you bring your own clean jar. We have 4 gallons to share this next week. Message me to bring for you.
Hope to see each of you soon,

This week "our girls" gave us enough milk to fill all the milk, kefir, cream, butter, and buttermilk orders, plus 8 extra gallons. One half went to an old favorite that several have been waiting for for quite a while. Garlic-Chive Fresh Pressed Cheese. Out of the 5# wheel we have 5 wedges left ranging in size from 6 to 11 oz. Prices range from $3.75 to $7.00 per wedge. Please message me if you want one reserved. We also have 3 pints of Marinated Feta left from last batch. New batch to be ready May 6th. The new butter seems a little different but I really like. We have 1 pound not spoken for @ $12.00. If you haven't tried it yet there are small cubes at Bee Healthy in the door of the frig. Stop by and see what you think. $3/ea
It's always such a joy to visit with like minded folks. Last week I was treated to pictures of Mozzarella Cheese they had made then used this cheese to make their pizza. Next time I'll remember to ask for pictures...they too utilize all the different products, including the whey, making carmels. Our whey this week went into Ricotta. 2 gallons make 12 ounces, but it is delicious and will be a family favorite tomorrow. Folks after my heart! EXTRAS to CLAIM SOON:
See you soon,

Notice how I didn't say mastered new tricks!!! In the past few months we've gone through a motor on one butter-churn and the other is out of commission at the moment too, so we've invested in a butter churn made and perfected in Turkey!
This week I have 10 samples of three Turkish products for an introductory price of $3 for the group. The first 10 to respond to this note will help us determine if all the work in learning a new trick is worth it!
SAMPLERS - What you will be getting: We need 10 responses today!
For April 22nd please get your orders in by Wednesday the 17th for:
We welcome anyone that would like to meet the girls, big (cows) little (chickens) to come visit. That reminds me the little girls are laying better. If you would like to be added to our list for eggs let us know. $4.25 per dozen.
Easter is one week from today. We sincerely hope you all have a very blessed week ahead.
