Might I just say that there is nothing, absolutely nothing I have experienced in my entire culinary life as divine as the farm-fresh items we picked up on Saturday from our first order through the Arkansas Sustainable Network Local Food Club? I cannot even begin to say what a thrill it is to be able to connect with local farmers through their online market. It makes purchasing locally-grown products as easy as the click of a mouse. Truly, anyone in the Little Rock area would be remiss not to take advantage of this amazing resource. Sure, the items are more expensive than what you find at your typical supermarket. But the quality is so superior that for us, it is worth sacrificing in other areas of our budget to accomodate the extra expense.
I do not like milk. I never have. But this milk, people. Ohmygoodness. It doesn’t even resemble the milk found in grocery stores. It is mouth-coatingly thick in texture, and it has a rich flavor that can best be described as nutty. The kiddos have started calling it sweet milk, and for good reason!
