Hutterite Soup – Comfort food, cook fast, creamy soup, baby food
Jacob’s Cattle – Big and meaty, taste & texture of new potatoes, traditional baked beans, chili
Jacob’s Cattle Gold – Hold shape w/ long cooking, soak up other flavors well, soups and stews
Marrow – Creamy bean with a slight taste of bacon, good in soups and baked beans
Nuña (near the end of our supply) – Good for sautéing in pan with oil and spices (soak first!), taste like fried potatoes
October – Creamy, velvety smooth texture, nutty, sweet flavor, thin skin, soups or chili
Pinto – Earthy flavor, great in Mexican cooking, falls apart under long cooking
Zebra (a few left!) – Smooth, creamy texture, full-bodied flavor, good all-purpose bean
We are out of several of our varieties already. If you have a favorite bean, you might want to stock up on it.
In addition, we’ll have Grassfield Farms raw aged cheeses along in the following flavors:
Chili – Gouda with Red Chili flakes, this mild and creamy cheese has delightful spice without being too hot.
Country Dill – A house favorite, the dill herb in Gouda well represents the fresh grass that dominates the cows’ diet.
Gouda – A traditional handmade cheese in keeping with West Michigan’s (and our family’s) Dutch culture.
Leyden – Originally from the Rhine Valley, now the Grand River Valley; cumin perfectly compliments this aged Dutch cheese.

Meadow View Goat Dairy & Farm of Fremont
Please note! We are reducing our visits to the market to once a month until we get caught up with farmwork and find additional help. This will be our last visit to the market until July 26th, so please stock up on your favorite cheeses this Saturday! They freeze very nicely.
NEW! Cherry Vanilla Chevre is our newest addition to our spreadable Chevres. We think you’ll like this one, especially good on a morning bagel!
Chevreʹ Fresh chevre with a nice spreading consistency, perfect for sandwich toppings and cooking. Cherry Capital Foods of Traverse City says ” The chèvre produced by Meadow View has a pitch perfect acidity on the palate that becomes gently sweet and milky with a grassy note on the finish.”
Our fresh Chevre available in your favorite flavorings: New Cherry Vanilla, Blueberry Vanilla, Hickory-smoked bacon Bits, Garlic, Italian Herb, & Hot Pepper
A smooth and creamy feta which is low in salt and rich in fresh goat milk flavor. The brining process gives feta cheese a salty, tangy flavor and a crumbly consistency. Feta cheese can be served as a table cheese, used in baking savory dishes, or served as an appetizer or in salads. The classic Greek salad is made with Feta cheese. In crumbles or cubes for easy slicing.
Tomme de Fremont
Our first aged cheese is quickly becoming a customer favorite! Developed from a French recipe, Tomme is a lower fat mold ripened cheese, aged at least 60 days. This gives the cheese a stronger flavor & firmer texture than the fresh Chevres, perfect for slicing.
A Meadow View Dairy original! If you are looking for a nicely aged but milder version of our Tomme, this is the cheese for you. Vacuum sealed without mold and aged at least 60 days.
Marco Similar to Dutch Kase but pasteurized and vacuum sealed, it comes in Pepper, Sage, Italian & Garlic.

We’ll also have eggs from our free-range, GMO-free flock. http://www.meadowviewgoatdairy.com/home
