We hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Emma and I were happy to head East to New York and help out on her family dairy. Emma's parents have about 40 milk cows in upstate New York and we were lucky enough to help feed and milk them for several days. Here are a few pictures from the farm!
This week we would like to recognize Amelia and her kids for helping at Diamond S Delights! Each week they help with making the delicious dairy delights we all love. Amelia is originally from New Zealand, and we are very thankful her family found their way to Hyattville. Besides helping with the dairy products, Amelia also makes some amazing sourdough bread. If you haven't tried it yet let us know and we will make sure to get some available for you. You can also sign up for our class on February 4th and learn how to make it for yourself! Below is a picture of Amelia and her beautiful kids. Thanks Amelia for all that you do!
As I mentioned above, Diamond S is hosting a hands on class at the ranch on February 5th! We will likely include the milking experience for those that have little ones or any adults that are interested in where our food comes from, then we will share breakfast with those that get here before 9am. The class will begin at 9:30am and include several dairy recipes, to be determined by the response we get from our blogs on some of your favorites. So, what products would all of you like to make? Along with the sourdough bread making portion of the class we will also walk you through several traditional cooking recipes such as sauerkraut, other fermented vegetable recipes, apple cider vinegar and kombucha. We will share a late traditional lunch then finish up our projects, and close with a bubbly drink and a cheese plate. We would love for you to join us!
This week we have marinated feta, hot and original cheese curds, ricotta, red-zinger sauerkraut and brie available at the store! Come on in and grab your dairy delights for the next holiday meal! As always, thanks for your continued support and interest in Diamond S!
