Premium Farmstead Cheese & Fine Farmhouse Foods


Joy of Terroir:

Appalachians & Piedmont


Cows gather at the fence line as winter clouds roll down from Stonyman Mountain.
I cannot endure to waste anything as precious as autumn sunshine by staying in the house. So I spend almost all the daylight hours in the open air.

Nathaniel Hawthorne, The American Notebooks


Always the same, when on a fated night

At last the gathered snow lets down as white

As may be in dark woods, and with a song

It shall not make again all winter long

Of hissing on yet uncovered ground... 


 - Robert Frost, The Onset

Snow management - in the field!
