A Message from Rachael:

Food is important and all, but people are more important. I want to let you all know that our dear Wendell - Nina's dad and our trusty right hand man who has been our delivery person and face to farmers and general awesome guy from the start of Bailey's Local Foods - is awaiting bypass surgery on Tuesday afternoon. Please keep him and his entire family in your thoughts and prayers. We can't wait to have Wendell back at Bailey's!

Now back to our regularly scheduled reminders...
You have one more week to order - well, except for the yummy goat cheese from Gordon's Goat Dairy. We need to send them the order by Wednesday morning.

Gordon and Bethany have two new types of cheese - Goat mozzarella and Goat parmesan! I asked Bethany for some more info on them and this is what she sent:

Our Goasterella is made with a mozzarella's recipe only using goats milk and a few tweaks from the cheese master to make it a light tasting cheese that strings when melted. Our Goatasan is made along the lines of Parmesans cheese only using goat milk. It is going to be an aged cheese to reach its full potential.
Cafe Crepe in Elora loves the Goasterella he cooks with it, as well as the C-line Pro, he adds it to his crepes.
Also the head chef at Beaver Valley Ski Resort is also adding our cheese to his menu for Jan. One is going into his salads. So we are waiting with excitement to get his reviews.

Spring Seedlings!
Along with so many of our farmers, Sarah's Kitchen Gardens is planning her seed plantings for this year. We will have Sarah grown seedlings available on May 15th and the first June Friday pickup!! If you want to see what was available last year check out sarahskitchengardens.com/plants/ and email her at sarahskitchengardens@gmail.com to make suggestions!

Speaking of choice, many of our farmers are asking what YOU want grown this year! What items do you want to buy at Bailey's this spring, summer and fall? Please respond ot this email if you have suggestions so we can pass them on to the farmers who grow amazing goodness for us!
