Each year cheese makers around the state open their doors to the public. This gives consumers and chance to see the barn, milking room, cheese kitchen and animals. This transparency and connectedness to the community is what is at the heart of the local food movement. At Sunflower Farm every day is Open Creamery. We welcome neighbors and visitors to the state to swing up the dirt drive to look at the goats and buy some cheese from the self serve fridge anytime. But Open Creamery is a wonderful chance to visit with all those people who help keep our farm running by buying our cheese and caramel. 200-300 people come each year and it is always great fun. This year we invited a few other folks to help us celebrate all the varied uses of goat milk.
Chef Deb Kratzenberg who is passionate about creative cuisine and holistic nutrition will be selling a squash and sausage soup topped with pumpkin seeds and Sunflower Farm chevre. She will also have homemade apple crisp topped with ice cream and Sunflower Farm cajeta. Seth & Crystal from Blue Tin Farm on Barters Island, will be selling their goat milk soap and lotions. Judi Brewer of Martha Moon Chocolates will be selling her chocolates (one is made with our goat milk caramel). An assortment of amazing goat related treats all in one place!
