Holy cow did this make me smile!

Woke this Tuesday morning to a delightful message from a customer who ordered our cheese for the first time. She got a sampler pack of 4 cheeses. This is her review.

Finished the cheese I’m embarrassed to say.                                                                              Two of us in three days.

OK, I shared some.

It’s gone.                                                                                                                                              Just like that.                                                                                                                                            We put it on our salad last night and tonight.

Had it with summer sausage for an appetizer.

Ate it in a taste test that went on longer than needed just to be sure.

I’m depressed now.                                                                                                                                  It’s gone.

Is that…… a Permanent Marker?!?

Creamery on a blustery day May 16So what started out as a tiny innocent idea of creating a middle school style morning announcement report as a way to start each of our busy summer mornings has somehow found a way of transmogrifying itself into something, well, quite different. All are the first take, one chance to get it right kind of filming. Here’s the first one, where, I seem to have forgotten to 1) – introduce what exactly I’ll be up to all summer and 2) – say the name of our business fully. Yeesh – what a momentous start. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbpAzZy49MM

You can follow the daily zaniness either directly on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWTX0IJ2cCfGbTC_m4Iy9lw                                    or on our FB page                                                                            https://www.facebook.com/Flathead-Lake-Cheese-87330205347/                                          if only to get your laugh for the day.

**Please note the author thought she had posted this last May….May!!  Good grief, where does the time go (and who is in charge of this website!!)

***Please also note the the above antics will continue with the start of the new Farmer’s Market summer season in May. We (that would be the Queen’s We) are taking a much needed hiatus from the limelight during the Missoula Valley Winter Market Season. Well, I can’t vouch that there will be NONE till then so best keep a lookout!  Cheers

Farmer’s Markets Season 2016

Thru 5May12 012 Hard to believe we’ll be starting our 5th season of Farmer’s Markets in a scant two weeks. This shot is from our very first market, complete with nearly no identification (or really much of an idea of what we were getting ourselves into.) We had been official for a month and a half and only had curds and feta to sell that first season as our wheels ripened down in the vault. I Thru 5May12 010love the expectation shown in the photo of myself, Joe and our friend Daniel at the Polson market….”will this work out or be an absolute bust?!?” Happy to report it worked out.

With a market under our belts, felt a little under control the following day at the Artisan Market held at the lovely Cottage on Main.

Through 12May12 023Soon our big yellow tent became well known. Phone fotos 1939

We had a few weeks of just the two markets a week before the big test – the market in Whitefish began. Towards the end of that first season, the Kalispell Farmer’s Market was added to the mix.

What a first six months Flathead Lake Cheese had!

 

 

Along the way, signage has become better and our display is a touch more attractive.IMG_5375     Phone fotos 492Phone fotos 917

 

 

 

Sadly, The Cottage closed but that opened us up to the markets in Kalispell and Missoula on Saturday mornings.

 

 

You never know who or what you’ll come across at the Market. From old friends with cheese awardsIMG_6306 (Stinky Cheeseman award for our fabulous Feta)IMG_6308 IMG_3329
