It's a snowy morning here in the Poconos. On days like this it's a hunters duty to be up at 4:30, dressed and out the door with a rifle over the shoulder shortly after a quick cup of coffee. Today is the second to last day of deer season in Pennsylvania. To me deer season is one of the last opportunities to connect with my wild side. I get to be out in the woods, using my long lost abilities to be a hunter-gatherer. It's what humans have done for most of our existence on planet earth as a means to secure food for every living person up until about 10,000 years ago. Some would argue that we made a mistake as a species to go from hunting and gathering to Agriculture. I don't know about that but I do know from experience that hunting is a lot more fun than milking cows or weeding onions. Fortunately for me Pennsylvania does have many extended seasons to hunt all kinds of game. If someone were so willing, they could probably eat something every day that was hunted, fished, or trapped in season. 

I am sad to say that our store is closed for the season. Last week was the last week, the store will not be open tomorrow. We are a seasonal dairy, which means we do not milk through the winter. We try to time it so they calve in the spring as they would naturally to raise calves in the most abundant time of year. 

We will still be at the Monroe Farmers Market selling cheese. Come and see us there!
