We are transitioning to 8 oz. blocks of cheese. We still have a small amount of yellow and garlic and chives cheddar along with some baby swiss in 1 lb. We plan to add an 8 oz. resealable shredded cheddar in the near future. All block cheese is sold by the block and the shredded cheese will be sold by the bag.

Goat Milk Supply Note: Almost every year we run short on Goat Milk in January, February, and March.The main reason for the winter shortage is that goats, unlike cows, are seasonal breeders. This means that they only have babies in spring and summer and therefore most goats are on their 2 months maternity leave in January and February. The winter weather also signals to a goat that this is the time to make less milk whether they are pregnant or not. Our goats live in the great outdoors, with available shelters, so they know very well what the season is. But don't worry about the goats being exposed to the elements. These are "Alpine" goats, hardy to cold winters and changing seasons. They do not want to be pampered year round in a dull and boring barn facility. They enjoy the changing seasons as much as we do. This is Caprine Delight! The goats are delighted to live here.
Another reason there seems to be a winter shortage of goat milk is that many goat owners prefer not to milk in the winter. Their goats are on vacation, so more customers are buying milk from Caprine Delight because we provide milk year-round. Also, Goat Milk demand grows in the winter because people seem to like to drink more milk in the winter. Milk and cookies and hot cocoa and hearty meals are just so delicious in the cold weather.
Goat milk freezes well in the plastic milk jugs. It maintains nutritive value for 6 months or more while frozen. A half gallon will thaw in 2 hours in a large bowl of water at room temperature or in 12 hours in your refrigerator. Shake occasionally during thawing. If the milk is frozen and thawed partially and then refrozen the milk will separate and become clumpy. If this happens, you can use a blender or stick blender to improve the consistency. If you have a frost free freezer, place the milk away from the frost free heating element in the freezer. If the milk is placed near the heating element it might defrost partially and then refreeze causing the separation and clumping of the milk. When frozen only once, milk can thaw beautifully and is very similar to fresh.
So stock up on Caprine Delight goat milk in the fall! Keep a few half gallons in your freezer in case of bad weather or emergency, or low availability.
Thanks for enjoying fresh, natural, delicious Caprine Delight Raw Goat milk!

Steve and Jenn at Wild for Salmon are the fishermen and owners of the company. They embark on an annual expedition to Alaska's Bristol Bay to harvest enough salmon to fill orders for a year. The goal of the fishermen is to have enough for a year and yet have it completely used up by the time to restock the next year. If you crave great salmon or are just interested in trying it out, you've come to the right place.

Note: There are 4 different flavors of salmon burgers - Plain salmon patties, Feta Dill salmon patties, Garden Style salmon patties and Spicy salmon patties. We plan to rotate the salmon burgers on a monthly or possibly every other month basis so you can enjoy all the flavors. We will attempt to call attention to the arrival of the new flavor each time but cannot promise it. Keep watching the website for your favorite flavor of Alaskan Wild Caught Salmon Burgers.

NOTE: Liquid Holistic Honey crystalizes rapidly as we head through the winter which means it may be solid when you receive it. There are various ways to use it when you receive it this way. You can use a table knife or spoon to dip it out and use it as is. Or you can warm it to 100* - 104* which will melt the crystals and it will return to a liquid again for a while. Don't heat it above 104* because it will damage the enzymes and other valuable properties of the Raw Holistic Honey. Here is a website that will be helpful in understanding some of the details about melting and even freezing honey.

These home canned foods are organically grown and expertly preserved by our Amish farmer friends.

As most of you know, my wife Dawn and daughter Gwendolyn have been doing the gardening and canning for quite a few years. But since Gwendolyn is married and lives two hours from here, they decided to give their recipes to the experienced Amish ladies of Oasis. So here it is, folks... all the goodness of Dawn's traditional recipes carried forward by our Amish friends. The Amish ladies even added a few traditional recipes of their own which we did not have... so it's been a great move for all of us and we thank them!

Your farmer,

Update: Our organic canned foods will be discontinued once we run out of stock. The folks at Oasis decided they need to focus on other parts of their business and will no longer supply us with them. The good news is that we have a pretty good supply of many of the items but once they're gone....they're gone. For those of you who have been enjoying and relying on them, we're very sorry.

The Horseradish and Lacto-Fermented foods will still be available. They will not be affected by the canned foods ending.

We are looking for another organic kitchen that would be willing and able to make these canned foods to our specifications. We will be sure to inform you as soon as we have found one.

Fresh, Local, Certified Organic Apples!
Remember the wonderful From Oyler’s Organic Cider we deliver every fall? This year we’re partnering with the Oyler’s for certified organic apples too! These Pennsylvania apples are rare because certified organic apples are difficult to grow in the eastern part of the U.S. The apples have character and are not perfect like chemically sprayed apples, but, as you know from the cider, their flavor is superb! All of these apples are excellent for fresh eating and for cooking. The variety of apples will vary as the Oyler family harvests multiple varieties throughout the season.

Note: All apple cider shipping after Christmas '17 will be frozen.

Gluten intolerant or sensitive? Will my stomach be okay with sourdough or sprouted wheat bread? The answer may surprise you, it did me.

Update - 1/16/18: Our baker will hasten to tell you that just because the wheat flour in the bread is fermented does not guarantee that you will not have sensitivity to the bread. Check out his journey with gluten sensitivity in this link and see what he's doing to overcome his allergic reactions to gluten. (I will add links as he continues to share his story in future newsletters). Gluten-safe Is Not Gluten-free

This website may help you understand how the carbs are broken down into simple sugars and the proteins into amino acids that the human body can digest more easily. And the enzymes that are produced in the fermenting process are very stomach friendly.

This is the same certified organic, expeller pressed coconut oil that my wife Dawn and daughter Gwendolyn have used for our family for several years. Since Dawn already buys in bulk for our store baking, and some of you have asked, we decided to make this available to the rest of you. Try it out! I think you'll be pleased with the price and quality.

Lard is a great cooking and baking oil. Many of the "old timers" will not make a pie crust without it. They say it makes the crust more crisp for a better handling, pie eating experience.

This wonder oil is rendered from the fat from our specialty woodland raised pigs. It can be used to fry in, cook with and of course, makes the perfect 'secret ingredient' for phenomenal baking. Our Woodland Pork Lard is not bleached, deodorized, hydrogenated or altered in any way.
