Dark Days Challenge #9-1

Saturday brunch post farmers market:

Beef Keilbasa from Eagle Wood Farms in Barkhamstead, CT.

Scrambled eggs from The Farmer’s Cow seasoned with thyme and oregano from my herb garden.

Melted Bridgid’s Abbey cheese from Cato Corner in Colchester, CT.

A sprout salad I made with my own garbanzo bean, lentil, and pea sprouts chopped up with some garlic and lemon juice.

Topped with fresh homegrown radish and alfalfa sprouts.

All on toasted homemade bread – we’re “borrowing” my mother in laws bread maker since she doesn’t use it and have been experimenting with different breads. Last week was cinnamon raisin and this week whole wheat. The flour I got at Whole Foods and although organic, it is not local. BUT, after reading about a few local grain producers on the Late Bloomers Farm blog I will try to find some flour from one of our more local growers next time!

Cato Corner

Lets be honest, I love cheese. I could eat it everyday all day. It’s my weakness. So naturally I had to find a local farm that makes their cheese using milk from pasture grazed cows. Cato Corner Farm is a small family business in Colchester, CT that seems to fit that criteria (not to mention their cheese tastes like heaven). To quote their website:

“We never use growth hormones, sub-therapeutic antibiotics, or animal-based feeds, and our cows graze freely so that they have happy lives with a rich diet of fresh pasture grasses.”

Those sure look like some happy cows to me. My cheese of choice is the Bridgid’s Abbey. While they do haveĀ  a wide variety, Colchester is a bit far from my house and the local fromagerie I frequent usually only has this variety and sometimes a blue as well. So there you have it. Cato Corner Farm definitely gets this Connectivore’s stamp of approval.
