Organic Grass-Fed Cheese

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: Newsletter, cheese, Member News

Jack and Betsy have been huge fans of Alemar cheese shortly after Kevin founded the small-batch local artisan creamery in Mankato. Having cheese made from well-raised cows is really hard to come by and it tastes amazing. The Camembert has been our go-to cheese for years, but with the pandemic, we've allowed ourselves a treat to bring it more into our daily route. We're SO excited to share several of their cheeses with you!

Pork Roasts: Delicious and Handy

Having a couple of pork roasts in the freezer and at the ready has really let us step up our cooking game. A little bit of advance planning and you've got a week's worth of quick meals.
