We are truly fortunate to get to experience Linden Dale Farm’s goat cheese here in Central PA!
Their delicious cheese will be featured in our Summer Squash and Rabbit Confit hors d’oeuvre at the Farm to Table Dinner.
Owned and operated by Andrew and Mary Mellinger, their farm is a 7th generation dairy farm that was established in 1797, The goats are bottle fed as kids and each and every goat has it’s own name that the Mellinger family keeps track of.
A little bit more about Linden Dale Farm from Lancaster Central Market’s website directory:
Linden Dale Farm is happy to be providing their cheese to local chefs. No other place in Lancaster offers fresh and locally-made goat cheeses; its flavor is unrivaled and its delicacy is very much appreciated by those who are looking for local quality. The Mellinger’s are enjoying being a small business and intend to stay that way so that they can continue providing a very high quality cheese. Mary assures us that their 7th generation farm wouldn’t ever compromise quality for quantity.
In an age of efficiency, bottom lines, and hard costs, the time and care that goes into this goat farm endeavor successfully bucks the trends of the time and reminds of a simpler way to do things.
