Last year I was apart of a book club. Well, if you could call it that, it was 4 other close friends of mine getting together over coffee or food to discuss Food and Faith. It was wonderful time discuss more than just the connection of faith to food. There was a chapter about local food, to which lead me to learn more about a local farm I had heard about for years that sold goat cheese. Then this past Spring this same group of women got together for a dinner out and this same farm was offering a free wine and goat cheese sampling where we learned about dinners they served at their farm. We all thought it sounded so good we signed ourselves up. Today this farm, Goat Lady Farm, had a free open farm day so me and the Phipps family went to check out this farm that makes awesome cheese.
