A Harley Farms Kinda Birthday

I am lucky enough to have a wonderful mother-in-law, who thoroughly appreciates the arts, fine wines, and fine foods. She taught herself to cook ala Julia Child, and passed that priceless heritage along to DucCat. She recently had a birthday, and a woman of such taste deserves only the best.

That’s why I was so jazzed to stumble across the Harley Farms website, tucked quietly away on the other side of the country.

I browsed through their selection of cheeses, trying to decide upon which tantalizing round to order.
Perhaps the colourful plentitude of the Artisanal Assortment?

Then again, the holidays are right around the corner... maybe ‘the Collage’, a "stunning and colourful journey through their most popular cheeses"?

I finally decided to go with the more modestly-sized ‘festive wheel’, and selected the ‘Van Goat’. Her love of art is as passionate as her love of flowers- and good, fresh goat cheese.

The shipping, as you can imagine, was as much as the cheese itself, but it came well-protected, still with a bit of a chill when it arrived at the front door. I’m not sure yet how it tastes, but she’s said that it won’t be cut into until a special occasion- and with DucCat and I around, as well.

The word artisanal truly seems to apply to the products that Harley Farms crafts for the world to enjoy. Happy birthday, Judy.

Those pictures are so pretty. I've seen similar cheeses in magazines, but haven't found anywhere to buy from yet.
