Technically, it's Spring, but it doesn't quite feel like it yet on the farm! Since it's still a little extra frosty outside, we kept the little ones inside today for a fun "play date." Check them out, jumping around and "talking" with each other. If only we could translate their "bhaaa" sounds!

Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!" ~Robin Williams
Hey, we can’t speak for you, but we’re happy to shed our heavy coats for a lighter jacket, trade snow for lush green grass, and best of all – start home entertaining again (even better if you’re able to entertain outside)!! After all, aren’t most people anxious to get out of the house and go to a nice dinner party again now?
Spring is also a particularly great time to offer a few goat cheese dishes on your party menu. Why? Spring is when the goats’ lactation cycle begins, when their milk is at its richest. And with Coach Farm now offering fresh goat cheese stuffed with pear and fig, you can REALLY get creative with your entertaining edibles.
In honor of the warmer season, we want to share a few dishes that pair goat cheese with in-season fruits and veggies. We bet your guests will be talking about your dinner party long after it’s done!
