A little poetry for your Saturday

To Be of Use

By Marge Piercy

The people I love the best
jump into work head first
without dallying in the shallows
and swim off with sure strokes almost out of sight.
They seem to become natives of that element,
the black sleek heads of seals
bouncing like half submerged balls.

I love people who harness themselves, an ox to a heavy cart,
who pull like water buffalo, with massive patience,
who strain in the mud and the muck to move things forward,
who do what has to be done, again and again.

I want to be with people who submerge
in the task, who go into the fields to harvest
and work in a row and pass the bags along,
who stand in the line and haul in their places,
who are not parlor generals and field deserters
but move in a common rhythm
when the food must come in or the fire be put out.

The work of the world is common as mud.
Botched, it smears the hands, crumbles to dust.
But the thing worth doing well done
has a shape that satisfies, clean and evident.
Greek amphoras for wine or oil,
Hopi vases that held corn, are put in museums
but you know they were made to be used.
The pitcher cries for water to carry
and a person for work that is real.

From Circles on the Water (1982), by Alfred A. Knopf

Where to Find Us This Weekend: March 15th and 16th

March 11, 2014

It is that time of the month when the forces converge and we have three farmer’s markets and four tours on one weekend.  Hello third weekend in March!

On Saturday, Talitha’s son, Gabe will be at the indoor winter farmer’s Market in Cornwall.  It is held in St. John’s Church at 66 Clinton St, Cornwall, NY 12518 from 11 am to 3 pm.  The market boast 8 to 10 vendors with all sorts of goodies: jam, pies, fresh greens, soap, etc.  and of course, our goat cheese.  The church staff sells soup, scones and coffee that can be consumed at tables at the market.

Also on Saturday, Talitha will be outdoors from 10 am to noon at the Ringwood Farmer’s Market in the Ringwood, NJ Park n Ride next to the Ringwood Library.  This is a once a month treat until late May so come get your cheese!  E-mail special orders to edgwickfarm@gmail.com.

On Sunday, Talitha’s son Daniel will be at the indoor Beacon Winter Farmer’s Market in the Scenic Hudson River House from 11 am to 3 pm.

To all three markets, we will be bringing fresh Canterbury goat cheese, Marinated Canterbury, Rosemary Fig Canterbury, Moodna feta, Sackett Ridge hard cheese and the last very tiny bit of Funny Child, our ale washed goat tomme.  This is it on the Funny Child and it won’t return until June so don’t miss out on this fantastic artisan cheese!

However, as a special, and to give you all something different to do with all this blasted winter weather (i.e.  cook and try out some new recipes), we are selling 4 ounces of crumbled feta for $4.  Check out a recipe list here:

Our upcoming weekend tours are just about fully booked.  Check our Facebook page or e-mail us for availability. Families coming on these tours will get to meet all the growing babies born in January and February!   Cara, our herd manager gives the guided tours and Big Dan will be doing the cheese tastings and milk tastings.  Don’t miss out – the tours end April 30th.  Book yours today!

Have you ever thought about keeping bees?  We are offering a bee boot camp this April with hands on experience with the bees.  Check it out at:

On a last note, Talitha’s daughter Emma, who lives now in California turns 20 years. Happy birthday Miss Emma!  Edgwick Farm misses you!
