Meadow View Goat Dairy 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.
Note: We will be attending market the last Saturday of every month.
We will be at market ONLY the last Saturday of the month. Thank you!

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.

Strawberry news:
Scholl Farm of Montague has chemical-free U-Pick strawberries. Call for hours:  231-893-1311.

Pamphlets will also be provided which will give tips for grind consistency and other factors for different brewing methods. A limited number of French presses and pour over cones will be available for sale. Come enjoy some fresh coffee! We will be offering our freshly brewed pour-over coffee before and after our demo. Fill a ceramic mug to enjoy as you shop for $1, or get a to-go cup to keep you going through the morning for $3.

Laughing Tree Bakery of Hart
Greetings from Laughing Tree Brick Oven Bakery—
It’s strawberry time here on Muller Mountain!  Every day we are either picking berries or prepping them for the freezer…  This also means our VANILLA SHORTCAKES will be available this weekend!!  They are $2.25 each and are perfect for strawberry shortcake (just add WARE FARM strawberries and whipped cream!)  These are a pastry we only make in early summer so get ‘em while they last!
Have you ever tried our Toasted Walnut Batard?  It’s a 100% organic loaf that only makes an appearance once a month or so—but it’s truly a little treat! It’s a simple recipe: toasted organic walnuts folded into our light wheat for a nutty combination with a purple hue (this comes from the walnuts).  It’s scrumptious toasted with a bit of chevre (or any soft goat cheese) or loaded up with your favorite nut butter.  Great for an appetizer or for breakfast…  Available this Saturday!  $7.50 for a loaf weighing one and a quarter pound.

Attending this week’s market:

New Vendor!
Little Red Organics of Freesoil
Sweetwater welcomes John Ferree & Kate Leitz, experienced organic growers that specialize in high quality, consistent products.  Kate has worked at farms from the western slope of Colorado to Vermont, and John started his own farm in central Indiana in 2004 after interning in Urbana, Illinois.  They moved to Michigan when farming opportunities in Indiana came to a close, seeking a new market with affordable land prices.  (Ground in central Indiana has increased from
4500$/acre to 8-9000$ an acre for ag value since 2008.)  They have since made their home in
Free Soil, and are currently producing vegetables on two acres with a small hoophouse for warm early season crops.

Bloom Ferments of Grand Rapids
Bloom Ferments is proud to be Grand Rapids’ first kombucha company. Kombucha is a slightly sweet, effervescent, fermented tea. Kombucha is also probiotic. Bloom produces high-quality kombucha using only fair trade and organic ingredients. Slightly sweeter than most commercial brands, Bloom kombucha has a more inviting taste and is enjoyed by long-time kombucha drinkers and people new to kombucha.

To learn more about the company and its products, visit www.bloomferments.com and click on the FAQ tab. Jordan Michalsky will represent us at Sweetwater, and she will also bring a variety of shirts from her Happy Ferments Apparel company.

Cultured Love of Grand Rapids
Cultured Love is “making good food possible”, producing probiotic-laden, nutritious foods that are not only beneficial for you, but also add amazing flavor, texture, and beauty to any meal. Our current lineup of specialty kraut products — traditional sauerkraut with caraway, dill kraut, and spicy kraut — are naturally fermented and nutritious, hand-crafted in Grand Rapids.

Black Turtle – Common black bean with a thick skin and a meaty texture.
Black Valentine – Taste 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 – (Almost gone) Hold shape w/ long cooking, soak up other flavors well, soups and stews.
Marrow – We cleaned beans for planting, and have a few extra Marrows! Creamy bean, good in soups and baked beans.
October – (Almost gone) Creamy, velvety smooth texture, nutty, sweet flavor, thin skin, soups or chili.
Painted Lady – Slightly sweet bean, smooth, creamy texture, good in everything.
Pinto – Earthy flavor, great in Mexican cooking, falls apart under long cooking.
Zebra – Smooth, creamy texture, full-bodied flavor, good all-purpose bean
Please let us know ahead of time if you’d like to order 5# bags of any one variety, so that we can pre-bag those and bring them along.

We will have our certified organic non-GMO corn along in two different options:
Whole corn (for making masa) – 2# bags. If you want corn in larger amounts than just 2#, please email me. We will have the little packets of lime necessary for making the masa, as well.
Freshly-ground corn meal – 2# bagsWe took our whole corn down to Windmill Island in Holland and had them grind corn meal for us. This stoneground meal is fresh, fresh, fresh–what I will have along to market Saturday is the second batch!

In addition, we will have Grassfield Farms organic raw aged cheeses along in the following flavors:
Aged Cheddar – You asked, and we listened! A sharp cheddar, aged a year. Award-winning!
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.
Crofters – This delicious cheese is aged 1 year with a medium sharp taste. The texture is dry and crumbly. Very similar to Parmesan.
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.
Cheese Sticks – Want to try some cheese, but don’t need a whole 8 ounces? We’ll have a few cheese sticks along each week, in a variety of cheese types, for $2 each.

The Roaring Mouse of Hart
Summer is here! We are hoping to start offering iced coffee and tea as well as our hot brews!
Tea lovers! Come check out our new loose leaf teas!
Coffee lovers! Come get a cup of freshly brewed pour-over coffee. Fill a ceramic mug to enjoy as you shop for $1, or get a to-go cup to keep you going through the morning for $3.

In the roaster this week:
New! Papua New Guinea FTO – Low acid, rustic flavor, a great Island coffee!
Peru La Florida FTO –  Sweet, with notes of chocolate and caramel.
Almost gone! Ethiopia Sidama FTO – a complex cup with berry notes and a sweet finish. This is one of our favorites!
Decaffeinated Peru FTO – rich and sweet, with chocolate and caramel notes. A very delicious decaf! This coffee was decaffeinated using the Mountain Water Process. It is a natural, chemical free process which allows the bean to retain much of its unique flavor.

Come taste the fresh difference!
Coffee is seasonal, so expect my varieties to change over the next couple weeks as new coffees come in. We try not to roast too much extra in order to keep the coffee fresh every week. Advance orders will ensure that we don’t run out of your favorite coffee before you get some!

ASPARAGUS! We will be at market with our Certified Organic Asparagus!

Meadow View Goat Dairy of Fremont
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: 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.

Zebra! – We cleaned beans for planting, and have extra Zebras! Smooth, creamy texture, full-bodied flavor, good all-purpose bean
Please let us know ahead of time if you’d like to order 5# bags of any one variety, so that we can pre-bag those and bring them along.

We will have our certified organic non-GMO corn along in two different options:
Whole corn (for making masa) – 2# bags. If you want corn in larger amounts than just 2#, please email me. We will have the little packets of lime necessary for making the masa, as well.
Freshly-ground corn meal – 2# bagsWe took our whole corn down to Windmill Island in Holland and had them grind corn meal for us. This stoneground meal is fresh, fresh, fresh–what I will have along to market Saturday is the second batch!

In addition, we will have Grassfield Farms organic raw aged cheeses along in the following flavors:
Aged Cheddar – You asked, and we listened! A sharp cheddar, aged a year. Award-winning!
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.
Crofters – This delicious cheese is aged 1 year with a medium sharp taste. The texture is dry and crumbly. Very similar to Parmesan.
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.
Cheese Sticks – Want to try some cheese, but don’t need a whole 8 ounces? We’ll have a few cheese sticks along each week, in a variety of cheese types, for $2 each.

A mug-full is $1 and the to-go cup is $3. The Bolivian coffee is almost gone! Coffee is seasonal, so it may be a while until I can get more. Don’t worry! It will be replaced with another delicious coffee!
In the roaster this week:

  • Almost out! Bolivia Fair Trade Organic – a sweet rich cup with chocolate notes and a bright acidity. Very good with dessert.
  • Ethiopia Sidama Fair Trade Organic – a complex cup with berry notes and a sweet finish. This is one of our favorites!

New Vendor!
Cultured Love of Grand Rapids
Cultured Love is “making good food possible”, producing probiotic-laden, nutritious foods that are not only beneficial for you, but also add amazing flavor, texture, and beauty to any meal. Our current lineup of specialty kraut products — traditional sauerkraut with caraway, dill kraut, and spicy kraut — are naturally fermented and nutritious, hand-crafted in Grand Rapids.We started producing and selling our products out of the Downtown Market Incubator Kitchen in GR in September 2014.

Cultured Love is driven by a desire to spread the idea that “food is medicine”, that what we eat has a significant impact on our overall well-being, our psychology, our digestion, our ability to fight disease. This mission has grown out of years of experience dealing with chronic disease in our family, seeking alternatives to standard American diets that are increasingly devoid of nutrition, and over-reliance on standard western healthcare which often provides medical responses to health and disease that don’t always address the root cause.

Country Dill – A house favorite, the dill herb in Gouda well represents the fresh grass that dominates the cows’ diet.
Crofters – This delicious cheese is aged 1 year with a medium sharp taste. The texture is dry and crumbly. Very similar to Parmesan.

The Roaring Mouse of Hart
It’s coffee time!  We are now serving freshly brewed pour-over coffee!
Fill a ceramic mug to enjoy as you shop, or get a to-go cup to keep you going through the morning.
A mug-full is $1 and the to-go cup is $3. This week we are planning to have a brand new coffee from Costa Rica! It is sweet and low acid.

In the roaster this week:
         Bolivia Fair Trade Organic – a sweet rich cup with chocolate notes and a bright acidity. Very good with dessert.
         Ethiopia Sidama Fair Trade Organic – a complex cup with berry notes and a sweet finish. This is one of our favorites!
        Decaffinated Peru Fair Trade Organic – rich and sweet, with chocolate and caramel notes. A very delicious decaf! This coffee was decaffeinated using the Mountain Water Process. It is a natural, chemical free process which allows the bean to retain much of its unique flavor.
        Sumatra Fair Trade Organic – Bold, earthy, with a molasses sweetness and a light acidity. This is a limited supply and is only available by the ounce.

Come taste the fresh difference! Brewed samples will be available for all coffees!
We try not to roast too much extra in order to keep the coffee fresh every week. Advance orders will ensure that we don’t run out of your favorite coffee before you get some!

Price is $1.10/ounce or volume discount $12/12 oz bag $16/16 oz bag
