Since we are still paying off our summer water bill we are trying to raise funds by offering a discounted price on CSA contracts. The price reverts back to 2010 prices. Special "Get Through the Winter and PAY OFF our Summer Water Bill Sale"

If you are up for a renewal soon or would just like to take advantage of a sale on CSA contracts, you should act now before Mr Neil changes his mind!! You must pay the full amount up front but there is no limit to how many weeks you can add on to your current contract.

Also we have added our new cheese contract to this document. If any existing CSA's would like a weekly cheese you can add that on at a prorated rate to the end of your contract. Please share this special sale with all your friends, family and even strangers!! We really need to increase our CSA support here at the farm.
To all the lucky CSA customers who ordered a chicken or two or some even three, we hope you enjoy them!!! ....straight from the coop to your table!
Flavor of the Week
$10.00 for a half pound wedge
Two new choices this week!
Flat Creek Lodge, a sustainable dairy, farm and hunting and fishing resort and spa in Southeast Georgia, opened its doors in 2002 after several years of planning and development. For more than a decade, Flat Creek has been committed to increasing trade and tourism in Emanuel County and Eastern Georgia by enhancing the land and showcasing products like artisanal cheeses and naturally-grown mushrooms and berries.
The award-winning Georgia Red is a wonderful washed rind cheese. It is a semi-soft cow's milk cheese with a creamy, earthy flavor. This cheese is paired beautifully with sweet or dry red wines. It's also a perfect partner for fruit and makes any cheese board more lusciously tempting.
*Silver Medal Winner at the World Jersey Cheese Competition
The Flat Creek Lodge award-winning Aztec Cheddar is a traditional Cheddar layered with guajillo chilies and black cocoa. The flavor is mild, exotic, earthy and complex. Add Aztec Cheddar to your favorite recipes, serve on a platter with crackers and even sprinkle it on homemade pizza for a unique delicious change.
*Bronze Medal Winner 2009 North American Regional Jersey Cheese Competition
Heavenly Blue is slightly stronger and firmer than the Flat Creek Stilton. This stronger flavored blue is an excellent pairing for a glass of red wine or in any recipe where you want a little more blue flavor.
Low Country Gouda
The Low Country Gouda is a traditional Dutch style Gouda. It is semi-hard with a mild buttery flavor. This cheese is traditionally enjoyed sliced thin with a cup of tea or as an appetizer with red wine. It is also delicious with rye breads and deli meats.
*Bronze Medal Winner 2012 World Jersey Cheese competition
Natural Rind Cheddar
This award-winning favorite is a traditional American style Cheddar aged a minimum of 9 months in a special cave designed to allow natural flora and fauna growth on the surface of the cheese. This Cheddar develops a dark rind on the surface, which creates a unique flavor and a firmer texture. The Natural Rind Cheddar pairs well with premium ales.
*Silver Medal Winner 2012 American Cheese Society Competition and World Jersey Cheese Competition
Flat Creek Blue Stilton
The Blue Stilton is a mild creamy blue. It goes well in salads, dressings, on burgers or stuffed in olives. Try it in recipes too as an omelet filling or in Cordon Bleu stuffed chicken.
Little Martha is fashioned after an Italian Crescenza. It becomes very soft at room temperature, which makes it perfect as a spread over a toasted bagel or served as a dessert topped with berries and honey.
A rendition of the Flat Creek Cheddar with the addition of chipotle peppers and adobo sauce for a spicy, smoky flavor. This is the perfect complement to tacos and nachos.
This creamy farmer's cheese is spiced with red jalapenos, green jalapenos and habanero peppers for an unmistakable hot pepper flavor. It is ideal for use in dips, sauces, on wings, and in any dishes that can take some kick. The Triple Threat is a real adventure in eating!
This is a farmer style cheese that is spiced with onions and chives and a hint of red pepper. Paris Medley is delicious on anything grilled, including: burgers, sausage, brats, steaks, hotdogs and more.
This is an exclusive recipe created at Flat Creek Lodge. It is not a traditional feta, although it does have some similarities. It is made from 100% cow's milk and can be sliced, crumbled, or cut into bite sized pieces. This Mediterranean makes a wonderful addition to salads, burgers and cheese platters. It can be coated with chocolate for a salty sweet snack - just grab a piece and nibble.
An original recipe designed at Flat Creek Lodge, Montazzio is a firm washed rind cheese that is aged over 6 months and has a dry, mild flavor. It is a great addition to any refined cheese plate or a nice arugula and pear salad.
This is a traditional Danish cheese with the addition of dill for a nice herbal and floral flavor. This full flavored cheese is creamy and has an outstanding texture. It is the perfect compliment to any cheese platter or as a snack
Flat Creek Cheddar
This traditional American style Cheddar is aged a minimum of 6 months. It has a creamy texture and a bold Cheddar flavor. Add it to any dish that calls for Cheddar or serve as a delightful anytime snack. This wholesome Cheddar is made from 100% Jersey Cow whole milk and is a calcium-rich, chemical and preservative free, all-natural cheese.
This is a unique Irish style cheese laced with yellow and brown mustard seeds, soaked in a stout ale. It can stand up to hearty dishes and is great served with elk or venison sausage, stews, breads, crackers and much more.

Sausage, Kale, and Sweet Potato Hash
Serves 4| Hands-On Time: 30m| Total Time: 30m
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 pound TaylOrganic spicy sausage
1 medium onion, chopped
1 pound TOF sweet potatoes (about 2 medium), peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
kosher salt and black pepper
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 bunch TOF kale, thick stems removed and leaves torn into bite-size pieces (about 10 cups)
4 large TOF eggs
1.Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until browned and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes; transfer to a plate.
2.Add the onion, sweet potatoes, thyme, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened, 3 to 5 minutes (if the pan becomes too dark, add 2 tablespoons water and continue cooking). Add ½ cup of the broth, cover, and cook until the potatoes are tender, 5 to 7 minutes more.
3.Uncover the skillet and add the remaining ½ cup of broth. Add as much kale to the skillet as will fit and cook, tossing frequently and adding more kale when there is room, until the liquid is almost evaporated and the kale is tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Return the sausage to the skillet and toss to combine.
4.Meanwhile, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Crack the eggs into the skillet and cook, covered, to the desired doneness, 2 to 4 minutes for slightly runny sunny-side-up eggs. Serve with the hash.
