FROM OUR KITCHEN
Jams and Jellies!  We have our award-winning strawberry jam and blackberry jelly.  Also available are apple, peach and peach mango and onion jam.
 
All of Hurtgen Meadows produce, plants, fruits and flowers are naturally grown using sustainable practices - no synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers are ever used on our farm.  We'll see you at the market!
Chapel Hill Creamery

We have ripe Carolina Moon 
this Wednesday, as well as Dairyland Farmers Cheese 
and Pheta.  The Carolina 
Moon is similar to a Brie, in 
the category called "mold 
ripened" cheese.  The white mold changes the cheese 
and enhances the flavor and softness over time.   It's a 
good example of SLOW  FOOD that is richer in flavor than many industrial type brie
which is made to ship across the ocean and not over ripen and get too strong.  We try to bring it to you when it is half to fully ripened, and we can pick one out for you.

Our Dairyland Farmers Cheese is a fresh cheese popular with kids of all ages, including our herd manager Allison shown outside the milking parlor. It's good for snacking or melting. Our Pheta is aged in a salt brine - also a traditional method - and is saltier than the farmers cheese. It has the rich flavor of our wonderful Jersey cows' milk and is great for salads or for topping pasta or greens.

Sausage comes from our whey fed pigs and is made with the hams for a meaty taste.  Choose from sage/maple breakfast; mild country breakfast; chorizo; mild or hot Italian; and bratwurst. Spare ribs and ground pork are also available.  Pick up a recipe for our market salad that uses our Farmers cheese, and taste a sample of our sausage and our cheese.
