Slow Food Boston meets Aug 9th for a Farm Tour

Join Slow Food Boston for an up-close encounter with the Nubian goats at Valley View Farm. Join us at 10AM on Saturday, August 9, 2008, and see how delicious fresh and soft-ripened goat cheeses are made.

Elizabeth and Peter Mulholland's family farm overlooks the lovely Ipswich River in Topsfield, MA. We'll learn how the herd is hand-milked and the cheeses hand-crafted, and how a goat/cow cheese was developed using rich Jersey milk from a neighboring herd.

Next, we'll drive 10 minutes for a picnic at the beautiful Green Meadows Farm in Hamilton, MA. Diana Rodgers will introduce us to the farm, which is a certified organic farm growing fruits, vegetables and heritage breeds. Sandwiches for a picnic will be available for purchase at the farm stand for approximately $6.00, and you may want to bring a cooler to shop for the farm's products.

Price is $10, payable via Paypal or check, and attendance will be limited to the first 30 people. See Slow Food Boston website for more details and to reserve your spots today!
