Farm to Table, the Road Trip

A call from Kate’s sister for recipes that use lots of milk, needed for the copious output from her Jersey cows, leads to an invitation to come learn about cheese making. So we hit the road for Ohio and sister Kim’s mini-farmstead in Vandalia, outside of Dayton, where happy cows are milked to classical music, frisky horses conspire to open doors and gates, heritage chickens lay colorful eggs, and the garden provides enough fresh berries and herbs to get our creative juices flowing. More on the cheese adventures later, but first, some highlights!

  1. The park is purple with mulberries… I have been using little baggies to pick them before they turn to mash on the ground. They are just wonderful, I can imagine them in a sauce with no trouble at all… here’s to the lovely cows… aren’t they adorable!!

    Great photos! Can’t wait to hear all about it. Did you bring home some cheese?

      I’ve also been seeing mulberries here and there around town. Just picked a few off a tree in Riverdale. And the cows are proof that treating animals humanely, with respect and love, yields rewards.

      And half a Cotswold is aging in the wine fridge (the right temp and humidity)
