Yellow Springs Goat Cheese Partners with HGC for Another Year

Feel a little left out when the chalkboard says, “It’s a cheese week”? No need to feel that way any longer! Yellow Springs Goat Cheese CSA will be partnering with Henry Got Crops for the third year, in 2012. Check out their brochure on our sign-in table to get the details about how new and returning members can sign up for 2012. To tempt you further Al and Catherine, the farmers at Yellow Springs, will be offering a taste testing during our pick-up! Be sure not to miss their delicious samples. They will be present on October 25th, and November 11th from 2-7pm.
A great article was written about one of their best cheeses in this month’s Grid magazine. Here it is copied:
Red Leaf
Fall is a great time to explore the cheeses of Chester County. The area is home to eight fabulous cheesemakers, including one of my favorites, Yellow Springs Farm. Al and Catherine Renzi are passionate about Nubian goats and native plants, and these two things come together in the form of beautiful, subtle cheeses that are inspired by the landscape where they are created. If you visit their dairy, you’ll find wheels of Fieldstone, Yellow Brick Road and walnut-speckled Nutcracker.
Ted Leaf is a tribute to the looming sycamores that shade Yellow Springs Farm. The leaves are gathered, washed, soaked in red wine, then wrapped around wheels of goat cheese. After 45 days in the aging cave, the wheels are sweet and earthy, with an incredibly clean taste. The rind, wild as it looks, is edible.
This October, Yellow Springs welcomes new members to its goat cheese CSA. Members receive handmade cheeses from the farm twice a month. This is a great way to taste a spectrum of goat cheeses, from fresh to aged, and to observe the seasonal changes from May through November. From more information visit the Renzi website. Farm visits can be arranged by appointment
