The Summer is Starting to Heat Up

It’s been a busy time.  I picked up some new customers and have been doing Farmers markets on the weekends.  The first Saturday at Cherry Creek was slow and it rained the second one.  We will try again as we did make some money.  Parker market has been good and fun.  The customers are actually shopping for food.  One customer bought Feta, went home and made an omelet, and came back for more Feta the same day.  Many people are return customers.  I know my cheese tastes good, but it’s nice to have other people think so.

The green chili cheddar (Great White) is selling real well.  We warn people that it’s “hot” before they taste it.  One macho 15year old insisted it wouldn’t be too hot for him.  Big bite, his eyes got big, face turned red and I swear smoke was coming from his ears.  I thought his father was going to fall over from laughing so hard.

Our Stoney Bleu is also selling well.  We sell it in whole or half rounds.  It is a mild bleu that you can eat a lot of.  It looks good on a cheese and fruit platter.  The cream cheese continues to be a big crowd pleaser.

We have sold so much cheese that we ran out of some kinds.  Matt and I have been putting in some long hours making cheese.  We ran out of milk and decided to up our deliveries and get more fridge space.  I remember the first Saturday at the market.  I had been nervous for days that no one would buy my cheese.  I guess that was a waste of energy.

Still working on getting the Farm.  Just made another offer and will keep you posted.

Kind of a fun thing;  I was asked to give a “tasting” at the Italian deli I sell cheese at.  Kind of like a book signing.  I got rained out!  I will try again because I really would like to see how this works.

    Mmmmm, I want to see a picture of that cheese and fruit platter! I can imagine that stoney blue with some nice red strawberries! Or Pike’s Pique with apple slices! Or maybe the Great White with blueberries!
