Farmer’s Market Finds. Slow Turtle Farm Goat Cheese

Small Town Living

I’ve been going to our local farmer’s market a lot lately. I love being able to get fresh fruit, veggies, and specialty bread. On a recent visit, I stopped to talk to one of the vendors, Carol Peters. She is the owner of Slow Turtle Farm, LLC. She raises goats, among other animals and was selling goat cheeses and milk at the farmer’s market. My husband and I love goat cheese, so I thought I should pick some up and try it. I chose the Raw Milk Chevre Plain goat cheese. It was $5 for 6 ounces, which I thought was a great price.

One of the recipes we use goat cheese in is a simple pasta, tomato dinner. It is easily made with cooked, short pasta, crushed or diced tomatoes, butter, olive oil, garlic, ground pepper, basil, oregano and goat cheese. Sometimes we add Parmesan cheese on top. It is so easy to make and it makes for a perfect summertime dish.

The goat cheese had a fresh taste with less salt that you get in-store brands. It goes well with a pasta dish, as well as with fruit, crackers and a glass of wine. The Slow Turtle Farm Goat Cheese offers a variety of goat cheeses, feta cheese, goat milk and more. Some of the other flavors that were available when I bought mine were lavender-infused goat cheese and Greek Feta cheese.
