Meadow View Goat Dairy & Farm of Fremont

Please note! We are reducing our visits to the market to once a month until we get caught up with farmwork and find additional help. This will be our last visit to the market until July 26th, so please stock up on your favorite cheeses this Saturday! They freeze very nicely.

 

NEW! Cherry Vanilla Chevre is our newest addition to our spreadable Chevres. We think you’ll like this one, especially good on a morning bagel!

Chevreʹ  Fresh chevre with a nice spreading consistency, perfect for sandwich toppings and cooking. Cherry Capital Foods of Traverse City says  ” The chèvre produced by Meadow View has a pitch perfect acidity on the palate that becomes gently sweet and milky with a grassy note on the finish.”

Seasoned Chevreʹ                                                     

Our fresh Chevre available in your favorite flavorings: New Cherry Vanilla, Blueberry Vanilla, Hickory-smoked bacon Bits, Garlic, Italian Herb, & Hot Pepper

Feta                                                                                        

A smooth and creamy feta which is low in salt and rich in fresh goat milk flavor. The brining process gives feta cheese a salty, tangy flavor and a crumbly consistency. Feta cheese can be served as a table cheese, used in baking savory dishes, or served as an appetizer or in salads. The classic Greek salad is made with Feta cheese. In crumbles or cubes for easy slicing.

Tomme de Fremont                                     

Our first aged cheese is quickly becoming a customer favorite! Developed from a French recipe, Tomme is a lower fat mold ripened cheese, aged at least 60 days. This gives the cheese a stronger flavor & firmer texture than the fresh Chevres, perfect for slicing.

Dutch Kase                                                               

A Meadow View Dairy original! If you are looking for a nicely aged but milder version of our Tomme, this is the cheese for you. Vacuum sealed without mold and aged at least 60 days.

Marco Similar to Dutch Kase but pasteurized and vacuum sealed, it comes in Pepper, Sage, Italian & Garlic.

Laughing Tree Bakery of Hart

Hazel Road is where we make our humble abode here in Oceana County and the Hazel Road Rustic is a humble and sweet loaf of bread made with organic corn polenta, organic Michigan grown rye flour, organic wheat flour, and a bit of sweet molasses.  Based on old time Anadama bread it’s just great everyday fare…  Especially nice for breakfast with soft goat cheese and  a wee bit of honey.

Come find it and many other naturally leavened breads at a farmer’s market near you!

We’ll see you there…

Shady Side Farm of Holland

We will be at market Saturday with 1 and 2 pound bags of our certified organic beans in the following varieties:

Black Calypso (near the end of our supply) - Creamy plump texture, nutty, mellow russet potato like flavor

Black Turtle - Common black bean, great in Mexican dishes

Black Valentine - Tastes a little like kidney beans, great for salads, soups and dips

Hutterite Soup - Comfort food, cook fast, creamy soup, baby food

Jacob’s Cattle - Big and meaty, taste & texture of new potatoes, traditional baked beans, chili

Jacob’s Cattle Gold - Hold shape w/ long cooking, soak up other flavors well, soups and stews

Marrow - Creamy bean with a slight taste of bacon, good in soups and baked beans

Nuña - Good for sautéing in pan with oil and spices (soak first!), taste like fried potatoes

October - Creamy, velvety smooth texture, nutty, sweet flavor, thin skin, soups or chili

Pinto - Earthy flavor, great in Mexican cooking, falls apart under long cooking

We are out of several of our varieties already. If you have a favorite bean, you might want to stock up on it.

In addition, we’ll have Grassfield Farms raw aged cheeses along in the following flavors:

Chili - Gouda with Red Chili flakes, this mild and creamy cheese has delightful spice without being too hot.

Country Dill - A house favorite, the dill herb in Gouda well represents the fresh grass that dominates the cows’ diet.

Edam - A variety of Gouda made with skim milk: Elastic, yet firm, this flawless low fat cheese is our best melter, improving any dish.

Garlic & Onion - The most aromatic of herbs. Don’t be the only one in the room to eat this spiced Gouda or you soon will be.

Gouda - A traditional handmade cheese in keeping with West Michigan’s (and our family’s) Dutch culture.

Lamont Cheddar A rare, natural rind English cheese, named for the Grand River’s first settlement near our farm.

Leyden - Originally from the Rhine Valley, now the Grand River Valley; cumin perfectly compliments this aged, Dutch cheese.

Spring Herb – A Polkton base (a softer cheese) with chives, parsley, garlic and tarragon. Very tasty!

Meadow View Goat Dairy & Farm of Fremont

Chevreʹ  Fresh chevre with a nice spreading consistency, perfect for sandwich toppings and cooking. Cherry Capital Foods of Traverse City says  ” The chèvre produced by Meadow View has a pitch perfect acidity on the palate that becomes gently sweet and milky with a grassy note on the finish.”

Seasoned Chevreʹ                                                     

Our fresh Chevre available in your favorite flavorings: Blueberry Vanilla (great on a morning bagel!) Hickory-smoked bacon Bits, Garlic, Italian Herb, & Hot Pepper

Feta                                                                                        

A smooth and creamy feta which is low in salt and rich in fresh goat milk flavor. The brining process gives feta cheese a salty, tangy flavor and a crumbly consistency. Feta cheese can be served as a table cheese, used in baking savory dishes, or served as an appetizer or in salads. The classic Greek salad is made with Feta cheese. In crumbles or cubes for easy slicing.

Tomme de Fremont                                     

Our first aged cheese is quickly becoming a customer favorite! Developed from a French recipe, Tomme is a lower fat mold ripened cheese, aged at least 60 days. This gives the cheese a stronger flavor & firmer texture than the fresh Chevres, perfect for slicing.

Dutch Kase                                                               

A Meadow View Dairy original! If you are looking for a nicely aged but milder version of our Tomme, this is the cheese for you. Vacuum sealed without mold and aged at least 60 days.

Marco Similar to Dutch Kase but pasteurized and vacuum sealed, it comes in Pepper, Sage, Italian & Garlic.

Other items from our farm:

We’ll also have eggs from our free-range, GMO-free flock.  http://www.meadowviewgoatdairy.com/home
