From the Cheese Department...
Gruyère is sweet but slightly salty, with a flavor that varies widely with age. It is often described as creamy and nutty when young, becoming more assertive, earthy, and complex as it matures. Gruyère cheese is generally known as one of the finest cheeses for baking. In quiche, Gruyère adds savoriness without overshadowing the other ingredients. It is a good melting cheese, particularly suited for fondues.  It is also traditionally used in French onion soup, as well as in croque-monsieur, a classic French toasted ham and cheese sandwich.
 Narragansett Creamery’s Renaissance Ricotta
This ricotta is ultra-rich and creamy, the result of the creamery’s hand-dipped, kettle-heated cheesemaking process using unhomogenized milk.  Instead of the curdy, almost tough ricotta routinely sold by dairy conglomerates, this small batch ricotta is delicate, dreamy, dip-in-and-eat-it-right-off-the-spoon heaven!
It's Citrus Season!
So many choices: Mandarinquats,
Key Limes, Blood Oranges, Pomelos, Meyer Lemons, Red Grapefruit, Naval + Cara Cara Oranges
our energy needs. 
Construction is scheduled to begin in March
with a completion date of May! 
Brighten Up Your House!

Are you hankering to start some seeds?  While it's too early for most vegetable plants, it's never too early to grow some greens and herbs in a bright area. We have some seed starting supplies available in the market, and more is on the way.  
Look for seed packets beginning in early February!
Have you always wanted to attend a yoga class but have been too intimidated to try? This is the class for you!
Join the Beginner Yoga Class with 
Dorothy Stover Wednesdays at 5:30 pm

Designed specifically for people who have never done yoga, or whose practice has lapsed over time, or maybe those with injuries wanting to restart their yoga practice with modifications.
We will be moving mindfully through a variety of beginner level yoga poses, connecting with our breath and becoming familiar with yoga language and meditation. This will be a supportive and uplifting class. 
Pre register on line or drop in!
We look forward to seeing you on the mat in the upstairs Hayloft Bartlett's Farm
