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!
In other news...
We want to wish our Grandson Brody, pictured below with one of our Dimond S cows during branding this year, a very happy 20th birthday tomorrow!
And while Brody is celebrating his birthday away at school, our little Grandson Jack, pictured above with the chicken, has been visiting the Ranch and keeping us all on our toes!
Wow, it's only the middle of April but Spring is in full swing at Diamond S! Look at all the happenings below...
First, let me introduce you to my new helper in the Diamond S Dairy, Linda Richardson. Linda and her husband, Barry, recently moved into the area to assist in many of the Ranch and Dairy operations and we are thrilled to have them! Linda has been busy with me in the dairy the last few days filling the orders to be delivered this week. Lots of Lemon and Plain Yogurt orders are ready for delivery tomorrow (Thursday) plus, milk, cream, butter. Kefir AND Maple Kefir will be bottled and ready early Thursday morning, too.
NOTE: Orders for cheddar cheese will be filled on a first come, first serve basis so be sure to order yours ASAP!
Speaking of orders, May subscriptions (monthly order) are due next week!
Remember! We are making and delivering milk, cream, butter, plain yogurt, and kefirs every week. Then monthly orders delivered as scheduled below:
1st Week: Dream Cheese (see picture above for May's Dream Cheese)
2nd Week: Marinated Feta (last bottles for April go out tomorrow)
3rd Week: Lemon Yogurt
4th (and 5th, when applicable) Week: will be some fresh cheese. Your choice, see our Products Page for options!
If you are interested in purchasing products or would like some to sample, Contact Us, we'd love to hear from you!
Outside of the dairy, ranch operations are in full force! In addition to the Richardson's joining Diamond S, we also have welcomed Boone Smith and his dog, Fable, to our ranch crew. Boone recently relocated to Wyoming from Ohio to be around his sister and brother and their families. He has been busy dragging meadows, fencing, and helping with the calf pens along with whatever other jobs come along throughout the days. Fable is rather uninterested in the cows but enjoys chasing birds and riding tractors. Fable and Boone can be seen in the picture below with his sister, Claire, and her kids, Theo and Bonnie. Claire, Theo, and Bonnie make the weekly trip from Worland to Hyattville and back by way of Ten Sleep most weeks to deliver dairy products on Thursday's.
Well, I believe we've covered the updates for now. I'm sure we'll be coming at you soon with more pictures and doings from Diamond S and the Dairy Delights!
Don't forget to place your orders for May, they're due by the beginning of next week!
....and inspiring some yummy things!
The Striff family in Worland has been enjoying so much Diamond S milk! Drinking it raw is, of course, the favorite, but last week Claire (mom) got inspired to make the kids a special dinner with the milk. Pudding. Pudding for dinner, you might ask? Well, let's see what Claire has to say about it.
"So I know that pudding isn't a typical 'dinner', but I wanted something easy and quick and special, not to mention high in nutrients for my growing kiddos! And if it was from a box in the store I wouldn't even consider it, but I have followed my mom's recipe found on The Healing Table website for many years. This specific recipe sweetens the milk with a small amount of honey and includes a couple eggs (adding to the protein and nutrients). My daughter is sensitive to processed dairy and gluten at the moment so I easily adjusted this recipe to be gluten free (with rice flour). It was a delicious hit, just look at the pictures!
Claire and her family aren't the only ones being inspired by Diamond S milk, check out this message I received recently!
Oh, how we love to hear what our customers are inspired to do with our products! So exciting, heartwarming, and rewarding for the Diamond S folks!
We are hard at work here on the ranch and in the dairy barn, be sure to order your dairy products for the Thursday deliveries to Ten Sleep and Worland or come to our little farm store in Hyattville for pick up. Don't forget to check on the products page each week, because we create something with every ounce of our product, and each week we will try to make something different to share.
Blessings and Happy Easter!
Dear Diamond S Delights Customer,
What a wonderful day we had yesterday , Thursday at Bee Healthy. Dream Cheese was a great hit. I hope you all will watch the video in our last blog, and want to try this at home, or order once per month from us. We will gladly share Kefir grains to all that ask. Thank you to those of you that stoped by or have already placed your orders. It was evident that everyone enjoyed tasting. Products we had and will have available different weeks during the month include Lemon Yogurt, Plain Yogurt, Cultured Butter, Kefir, Maple Kefir, Marinated Feta, Raw Milk, & Liquid Gold (thick whipping cream).
We have been developing our business products and trying different models/modes for the past few years. Most of you have been through the evolution of business changes with us and we’re thrilled you are still enjoying our products!
We have found that this lovely dairy business could easily take up all of our pre-dawn and daylight hours if we let it. Milking cows, sterilizing jars, chilling and bottling milk, making special orders of kefir, yogurt, butter and cheeses, and so on. In hopes of organizing for better efficiency and time management, we are wanting to implement a few basic standard procedures.
For our consistent customers who order weekly or bi-weekly, we want to make sure you have what you need when you need it and not get lost in the shuffle of special/short notice orders. Does this mean that you can’t order things on short notice? No, but we can’t guarantee we will have what you want/need for short notice orders, either.
First, we ask that you put your order the 21st of every month. Example: Order by 21st of March for your April dairy, and the 21st of April for your May delivery. This ensures we can organize the proper products to be made and bottled for you that month. Watch the product page middle of each month so you know what will be available and which week, then place your order by the 21st.
Second, we ask that you pay on or by the first pick-up/delivery of the month. Remember this ensures your order will be ready each week.
For our sporadic, special-orders only customers, we value your business and want to make sure you get your healthy and delicious dairy, too!
First, we ask you order 2 weeks ahead. While we can typically fill an order on short notice, giving us the 2 weeks courtesy allows for us to make sure we have what you need, when you need it. Does this mean that you can’t order things on short notice? No, but we can’t guarantee we will have what you want/need for short notice orders.
Second, we ask for payment in full before or upon receipt of your product.
For ALL Diamond S Customers:
Cash and Check are preferred routes of payment, however PayPal is set up and working on our website and is a seondary payment source. Fees are associated with this payment method and will be added to your total when invoices are sent. Venmo is another option with no fees and is available as of yesterday. To access this option type in Venmo@Kris-Robertson-6. Please feel free to discuss these options with us if you have any questions.
We ask that all jars AND lids be cleaned and brought back promptly (weekly if you are a regular customer or whenever the jar has been emptied for those who special order) in order for us to continually fill demand. We know jars have become somewhat of a desired item recently but jars you receive your dairy in must be returned, and used only for your dariy products.
When returning jars, please place them in the coolers marked Diamond S. This ensures the best possible storage and least possibility of breaking. If no coolers are available or they have been filled, jars can be placed on an empty shelf in the refrigerator.
Thank you for being a Diamond S Customer! Your time and attention to the above helps us keep organized and you to get your dairy when you need it.
We would love to hear from you, drop us a little note to let us know you read this AND to order your dairy… The calves are here so the milk is flowing!
Can't wait to hear from you!
Did you learn about Dream Cheese in our last blog?
All ingredients pure, natural and easily-obtained.
A great way to ‘up’ the probiotic content of any diet.
A simple, traditional process easily done in your kitchen.
Lasts up to a year—refrigerated—because it’s stored in olive oil.
What’s more, you can add your own herbs and flavorings to accent any family-favorite meal. No wonder it’s called DREAM cheese! Some of you have had our Dream Cheese. We created a wonderful spread made with our favorite herbs and sold it in a fresh cheese spread. As you know fresh cheese usually needs to be used within a week. Our Marinated Feta and this new version of Dream Cheese both made in similar fashion and marinated in organic olive oil so will keep for up to a year if always covered in olive oil.
Ready to try some??
Don't forget Thursday, March 18th - 10am till 1 pm join us at Bee Healthy on Main St. in Worland!
We'll have kefir grains to share, raw milk,
lemon yogurt, dream cheese, marinated feta cheese. See you there.
Interested in making your own?
Watch this video:
Raw milk, kefir grains, sea salt, cheesecloth, kitchen string, herb or spice flavorings (optional), olive oil.
