What a long, strange summer it’s been. All we can do is keep on truckin’ you the food we all love while our neighboring farms continue to swelter and hope for rain. On to the food… new product alert! Check out Tickle Sauce. Our dispatch manager Nick has tested it on everything from Italian takeout to omelettes and declared it, “Better than srichacha!”. High praise indeed. First shipments are happening next week. We are also delighted to now be working directly with 5 Spoke Creamery. That means better availability, and better pricing for you.
Tickle your senses with TICKLE SAUCE created by heat-loving New Orleanian and long-time Brooklynite, Heidi Tickle. The sauces are inspired by a family recipe and made with care in small batches at Beth’s Farm Kitchen in New York’s Hudson Valley. The all-purpose sauces begin with a traditional roux, add a holy trinity of onions, green onions and garlic and finishes with hand-picked habanero peppers and other spices to make-you-wanna-pour-it-on-everything. We hope you love it as much as we do! http://www.ticklesauce.com/
5 Spoke Creamery
Great cheese starts with great milk. At 5 Spoke Creamery all of their cheeses are hand made in the farmstead tradition(produced on site with a closed herd) from the raw milk of grass-fed cows. The milk comes from Holstein cows that are free of pesticides and hormones. They milk the cows at 4:00 A.M. and make the cheese at 9:00 A.M.Why is the milk they start with so great? Because grass-fed cows get to roam, picking and choosing from a variety of grasses, herbs, flowers and weeds. Taste some and find out what you have been missing. http://www.5spokecreamery.com/
Cross Creek Farm
Cross Creek Farm has updated their bottles and their labels giving them some great shelf appeal. And guess what? The apple butter inside tastes as great as ever. Cross Creek Farm Fruit Butters are handcrafted in Berkshire, NY using only local fruits. They are all made in small batches to ensure the best quality possible. The original recipe for the apple butter was an old family recipe, and consists of chunks of fruit so you enjoy that nice bite of fruit with your butter. http://www.crosscreekfarmfamily.blogspot.com/
