Spring 2017 - Week #4

Featured Farm: Does' Leap, East Fairfield, VT

Does’ Leap is an innovative, diversified organic farm specializing in a variety of fresh and aged goat cheeses, kefir, and farm-made, artisanal sausage. Their goats and livestock are raised outside except in the coldest months, and the farm's lush green mountain location provides plenty of wild forage for them to eat. Does' Leap Farm is one of the few goat dairies in the country that rely on a mixture of pasture and browse (shoots or twigs of shrubs and trees) as the primary feed source for their goats. As a result, their cheeses and meats are of exceptionally high quality and take on the flavor of Vermont’s changing seasons.

Eat This First: Celeriac, Green Cabbage and Kale!

  • Is Celeriac (also known as Celery Root) a new vegetable in your household? Don't be shy! Dig right in - peel off the rough, nubby outer skin and you'll find a smooth white veggie underneath. We often use celery root as a replacement for celery - this works especially well as a base for a soup, or added to mashed potatoes, or added to a mixture of roasted root vegetables. See "How to Peel Celery Root" under the recipes below!
