Here is Amber Townes' report on what is new in cheese at the East Store.
Carr Valley Mobay is one of Wisconsin cheesemaker Sid Cook's many original creations. It combines a layer of sheep milk cheese and a layer of goat milk cheese with a layer of grape vine ash down the middle.
This cheese is fabulous! Its flavor is mild and earthy enough so that cheese novices can enjoy, but it has far more personality than most other mild cheeses.
We're delighted to be able to offer a wide array of heirloom tomato seeds this season, compliments of Red Rosa Farm outside Spencer, Indiana. Here are descriptions of the varieties we'll be offering.
Happy gardening (Yes! It really is almost time to begin the new growing year!).
Bloomingfoods just received a lovely holiday greeting from our friends at Equal Exchange. They wished us a happy holiday and informed us that Bloomingfoods' bulk "fair trade" coffee sales this year were sufficient to permit 10 farming families in developing countries to enjoy levels of health, education, and environmental stewardship which have traditionally been no more than a dream to coffee farmers. We're very happy to share this news with all our customers, whose purchases made this possible. May we all imagine and work toward a world in which "fair trade" becomes a redundant expression only because trade with all growers is conducted in a way that is fair and respectful.
