Sweetwater Curated Local Foods
There is an order going in for the list below on Wednesday by noon. Please email back at sweetwaterlocalfoods@gmail.com if there is something you want so I can be sure to include it in the order. Thanks!
New! Ludwig Farmstead Creamery of Fifthian, IL
Longtime customers will remember the great cheese we used to carry from Grassfields of Coopersville. Since they stopped production a few years ago we have not been able to locate a good local replacement. My salesperson at Cherry Capital sent me samples from Ludwig Farmstead Creamery and I have to tell you I’m making an exception to our Michigan local for this one! The farm is 300 miles away, in Fifthian, IL (pop 485). They milk around 65 cows from their herd of Holsteins, and the farm is Certified Humane for their grassfed operation. This means the cows diet is exclusively grass & forage with no grains or grain by-products allowed. Learn more about how the cows are treated here: https://www.ludwigfarmsteadcreamery.com/our-cows  and the strict standards for Certified Humane, including feed requirements here: https://certifiedhumane.org/wp-content/uploads/HFAC-Dairy-Cattle-Standards_20-2.pdf
For this week choose from :
Kickapoo named after the State Park which is near the creamery, and the Native American Kickapoo tribe that was prominent in this area.  Kickapoo cheese is a Ludwig original recipe.  Kickapoo is a semi-hard, raw milk cheese reminiscent of an aged Parmesan, with  fresh, buttery flavors and a sharper finish.  It has a distinctive green rind.
Vermilion River Blue The scenic Vermilion River flows close to Ludwig Farmstead Creamery and was the inspiration for naming this great cheese. Vermilion River Blue is a triple cream cheese with a soft creamy texture punctuated with gentle notes of blue.
Sangamon Double Cream Named after a beautiful Illinois river, Sangamon is a smooth & firm, but still melt-in-your-mouth cheese. Made with day-fresh milk and added cream, Sangamon melts well as a recipe ingredient.
Jakes Havarti A raw milk, semi-soft cheese that melts well, favorite of the founder Jacob Ludwig.
Jakes Havarti Herb Dill, garlic, and chervil give this semi soft creamy cheese a fresh herb taste.
All cheese comes in 5 oz wedges for $6.00 each.

Each bag costs $15.
This week’s bag will likely contain some combination of the following: head lettuce, kale, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, kohlrabi, butternut squash, shallots, and microgreens. Again, each bag will cost $15.
This week we also will have a variety of vegetables available for pre-order:
kale (red curly, green curly, and lacinato): 1 pound for $4
collard greens: 1 pound for $4
full-size cabbages (conical, savoyed, and Napa): $4 each
leeks: 1 pound for $3

Looking forward, we are expecting to soon be harvesting spinach, arugula, and baby kale from our hoophouse, as well as fresh ginger.

Sweetwater Community: Thank you for the many positive comments about our winter plans! This message from customer Katy Keck sums up most of your sentiments: “You just made my day. I was so worried about what was next and how the farmers would survive, and a bit selfishly where I would go – and yahoo!! I am so grateful that the farmers are game for a little outdoor hour in this brutal landscape and will do my bit to keep them selling.”

We hope to see you all at the market soon! Please feel free to pass along the link to sign up for the newsletter to anyone you think might be interested!  https://tinyletter.com/SweetwaterLocalFoodsMkt

If you are new to Sweetwater, please see instructions at the bottom of this newsletter for more info on How to Order & Pick Up at Market
