Cranberry Creek Farm Newsletter

 

Hi Friends of Cranberry Creek Farm,

It's been a long time! I love writing these newsletters and I hope to be better at keeping in touch with farm news.

We are in full swing here with all 48 goats milking. We have a nice herd of alpines, nubians and lamanchas mostly in their first lactation. We have a beautiful crop of kids from them this year. Possibly the nicest looking kids we have had to date.

The milk is higher in butterfat than we have had in the past because of the nubian and lamancha milk. It's making for some great cheese! I have been making a few soft ripened cheeses and marketing them to restaurants and stores around the Philadelphia area.

We miss being able to have a part in feeding our local community. We will be opening the farm store on Saturdays from 10-2 so that we can share our bounty with you. Please stop by and try some cheese and chat! We will have fresh chevre in abundance as well as all my other cheeses.

We hope to have some produce from the gardens available in the farm store as the season progresses. The potatoes are already coming up! I planted carrots and radishes last week. My mother has been hard at work in the high tunnel planting tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, basil, and pumpkins.

Mary-Jean is rocking it with her Cranberry Creek Forest business! Many hand made wooden toys are available in the farm store. They make excellent gifts for your favorite kiddos.

Last but not least, I would like to be your guide for a goat walk on Sunday at 1pm weather permitting (goats will not walk in the rain). Come experience my favorite part of goat pastoralism in person. Bond with the goats, get some fresh air and exercise, meditate and clear your head in nature while the goats eat a zero carbon footprint meal from the wild parts of our 100 acre woods.  15 dollars per person. Cheese and beverages will be served after the walk. Space is limited to 15 people so rsvp quickly to reserve your spot. 

Blessings,

Jeffrey & Mary-Jean

Dairy Goats

We have been raising quality registered Alpine Dairy Goats since 2011. Many of our does are directly related to top 10 milkers. We graze our goats on rotated pastures and woods. They receive a non-GMO grain at milking time and they also have free choice access to 12 different mineral supplements every day. In the winter they eat hay made on our farm or close by, and non-GMO grains.
