It’s hard to believe we’ve arrived at the end of August! To cap off the summer, we deposited daughter #1 in her Stony Brook dorm room. Frankly, our chickens have more space! But one of her roommates arrived with a cat, so all is well. Classes start Monday. This will be her last semester, graduating in 3.5 years!

Peter celebrates his 52nd birthday this coming Wednesday. Peter’s brother Charlie, his wife Dana, and their daughter Abby arrive that same day from Pittsburgh. As the ultimate birthday gift, daughter #2 and I are heading up to camp with the Pittsburgh Joneses and WILL MISS THE THURSDAY CLINTON MARKET. Peter will spend just a couple days in quiet bliss, tending to the farm and making cheese. If you need goodies, please drop by the farm store. We’re open!

Do THIS with your tomatoes!

At this past week’s Clinton Farmer’s market, we bought a pint of delicious cherry tomatoes from Jason at Kingfisher Farm. We’ve been cutting them up and putting them in our omelettes and salads.

We also inhale tomato sandwiches this time of year. Sister-in-law Dana gave us this fantastic recipe that uses our feta:

Tomato-Feta Sandwich
1-2 ounces JFF feta, crumbled
1-2 T mayonnaise
favorite bread, toasted
sliced tomatoes
basil or chives (optional)
salt & pepper to taste

Mix mayonnaise and crumbled feta, spread on toasted bread. Top with tomato slices and basil or chives if using. I tend to not need salt, but you may disagree. I always add a few hearty grinds of fresh pepper. Enjoy!

Tasty tomatoes with mayonnaise & feta are the perfect late summer sandwich!

This Week

As a reminder, we will NOT be at the Clinton Farmer’s Market this week. Our farm store is open every day, 10am-6pm, where we have even more goodies from many of our farmer friends.

Can’t make it to the market? The online farmer’s market Local Foods Mohawk Valley has you covered!

Thank you, as always. If there is anything we can do for you, please let us know!

Suzie & Peter
