Celebrate Dairy, April’s Harvest of the Month

This April, as warmer, sunnier days and the birth of baby animals herald the arrival of Spring, we celebrate Dairy as our Harvest of the Month. As the calves are born, cows produce milk to feed their young. We are lucky to have two dairies on the island, The Grey Barn & Farm and Mermaid Farm. Both sell milk and also make value added products. Milk from cows who graze on grass is higher in nutrients, and the taste is incredible. Pick up some milk from an island dairy, and try to make this simple Ricotta Cheese by Chef Robin. Click here to download the recipe. For serving ideas, nutrition info and more, click here.
