Open Farm Day This Sunday May 18 from 1-5 pm!

Come see how the babies have grown, tour the dairy, check out the "footprint" of where we'll build the aging space, taste some new cheesecake flavors, and cheer on our awesome farmhands for the great work they do. Oh, and snuggle some adorable goaties. As always, it's free and family-friendly. Wear clothes and shoes that can get dirty. (No dogs, please!) Spread the word!

Prodigal Farm Kickstarter — Please contribute!

We are working hard to raise money for an aging space that will allow us to produce cheese year round. You can learn more about our campaign by visiting Kickstarter and also by watching the video below. As with all things farming, every dollar counts so please consider a pledge. We'd love to send you one of our terrific rewards as a thank you!

Aw, Shucks ...
Our friend, Kathleen, at The Bloomy Rind in Nashville recently passed along some very kind words from one of their customers:

"Can a person actually die from eating one pear and one tiny sliver (OK, a wedge) of blue? On one Artisan Cracker? Unbroken? It was a close-run thing, lemme tell ya.

Do you have any more of that blue (Prodigal, I think)? If so, could I have a pound? Or, whatever you've got under that? Or a crumb, if some fell on the floor? Or ... if you are ordering some, I'm in. Or, maybe we could got wherever they make it and pick it up. They'd have it ready by the time we got there, eh? Thanks in advance for your gracious help in saving me from a life without this cheese, Jesse"

We are positively blushing and are enormousely pleased to meet folks who share our passion for cheese ... thank you Kathleen and Jesse!

Unlike in many Northern and Midwestern states, the trade of cheesemaking didn't take off in this region's warm climate until after refrigeration became popular. Now, says Coleff, there's a 'surge of new Southern cheeses out there.' Last year marked the launch of the Southern Artisan Cheese Festival in Nashville, Tenn." Continue reading ...
