The Paleo Diet

posted on February 15th, 2017 by Lauren Murphy

You may have heard about the Paleo diet or know someone who follows it. This diet is inspired by our ancestors and how they used to consume their meals with clean food, free from additives with nothing processed or not found in nature. With Paleo, there is no calorie counting or portion control (unless you are trying to lose weight then you should limit the amount of fruits and nuts you eat or just enjoy them as snacks). Acceptable foods on the Paleo diet: Meat (grass-fed), poultry, fish, eggs Vegetables & sweet potatoes/yams Fruits Nuts Natural oils (olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil) Foods Paleo discourages: Dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt) Grains (no rice, pasta, barley) Grain-fed meats Sugar Legumes (peanuts, kidney beans) Sodas & packaged juices   Read More

LaClare

posted on February 2nd, 2017 by Lauren Murphy

LaClare Farms is family owned and operated by Larry and Clara Hedrich & four of their five children in Wisconsin.  They began their journey in 1978 when they purchased a 22-acre farm to raise their five children. They began their dairy goat operation at this time as well, showing their goats throughout Wisconsin and Michigan for a few years.  In 1996 the opportunity to go commercial came up and the first load of goat milk was picked up in April of 1996.  The family milked over 100 goats for nine years before starting the Quality Dairy Goat Produces Co-op with another group of farmers.  The QDGPC has set the standard for quality milk across the US.  They have supplied LaClare Farms, Sartori Cheese, Carr Valley Cheese and LaLoos Ice Cream with goat milk. Then the fun began… in 2008 looking to add value back to the farm through other avenues, Evalon cheese was born.  LaClare Farms won their first award with Evalon at the United States Champion Cheese contest.  At this… Read More

Mull of Kintyre

posted on February 2nd, 2017 by Lauren Murphy

Mull of Kintyre is hand-crafted in an old distillery on the remote Kintyre Peninsula in the picturesque region of southwestern Scotland. This unique cheddar is crafted in the historic Campbeltown Creamery which has been producing cheese since 1923. The lush green land helps give Mull of Kintyre Cheddar its rich flavor and delicate sweetness. This extra mature cheddar is slowly aged for a minimum of 12 months by their master cheese graders. This creates a firm bodied cheese that delivers a distinctive eating experience. Mull of Kintyre is a two-time International Cheese Awards Gold winner for Best Scottish Cheese. A lovely cheddar like this should be paired with Ballast Point Sculpin I.P.A. or a dark Porter.  It also goes well with apples and honey. On February 2nd our wonderful demo team will be handing out samples of this amazing cheese Read More
