Sign up for the 2014 season!

We're thrilled to invite all members of the Kensington/Windsor Terrace community to join us for another fantastic season. You can sign up on the Garden of Eve Farm's website, where you'll find lots of useful information including location, pick up times, prices, and share options.

Please contact us with any questions that aren't answered on the Garden of Eve Farm website. We are planning to continue with the same pick up schedule and location, Saturday mornings and Wednesday afternoon/evenings at the community garden on East 4th Street between Fort Hamilton and Caton Avenue. Although the farm is not able to take payment in installments, we are hoping to offer an installment plan to 1-2 families or individuals this year. Please contact us through kwtcsa@gmail.com if this would enable you to join. The farm does accept payment by credit card through the online payment system.

Last year we sold out of shares, so please sign up early to reserve your spot. Schedule assignments and volunteer sign-up will be available in May.

DORSET
A washed-rind, raw Jersey cow cheese. A soft ripening cheese with a rich, buttery texture and seasonally influenced pungency. An elegant appetizer or dessert, often served here in the historic village of Dorset, VT.
Seasonal availability only in 2.5 pound wheels.
Winner American Cheese Society (2008) Winner World Jersey Cheese Awards (2008) World Cheese Championship Winner (2010)

MANCHESTER
An aged, raw goat peasant tomme. A rustic mountain cheese named for Manchester VT, the gateway to the Green Mountains. This cheese has a nutty and earthy bite. Due to rotational grazing on our pastures and the aging process itself, each batch has a distinct note. A bold addition to any cheese board.
Seasonal availability only in 2.5 pound wheels.
