Bellwether Farms Friends

We’ve been very lucky to make friends all over the country in our over 30 years of making cheese and yogurt. Every day, we receive notes from you of good cheer here at our farm in Sonoma County, California. Join us as a Bellwether Farms Friend and we’ll send you regular notes about goings-on here. And who knows? Maybe you’ll be chosen to receive a free gift.

I don’t know if I’ve shared this with you guys yet, but berry tarts are my FAVORITE dessert! These are so easy to make and taste super fresh. I used Bellwetherfarms whole milk basket ricotta (thanks for sending!) which is soo rich and creamy. Full disclosure - I almost just ate it straight out of the container 🙃 Speaking of the container- it’s actually sold in its original draining basket- which really makes you feel like you’re eating #farmtotable ! I linked their page in my bio so you can try this out for your next berry tarts too! ❤️ #bellwetherfarms #handdippedricotta
Are you a “who cares about ricotta” person? I was like you once. No really, I was. Ricotta was for cooking and baking and that was about it - why eat ricotta as an actual cheese when there was a world of funk and stank to indulge in? Then, my life changed. Then, I had bellwetherfarms sheep’s milk ricotta. That blank canvas of nothingness that I used to associate with ricotta was GONE - this ricotta was RICH, she was COMPLEX, she had LAYERS. This ricotta is sweet and fluffy with just a hint of animal-y-ness that takes you on a flavor journey. And on a piece of toasted baguette with some homemade lemon curd? Shut the FRONT DOOR.

She’s not always available - this seasonal meringue-like cloud of a cheese is only around in the spring and early summer - but sweetlulabelle has some right NOW. Don’t sleep on your new favorite cheese. She is unassuming, but hot damn is she good.

I’ve been binge watching Top Chef, catching up on the last few seasons that I missed since Ryeson was born. 

One theme that keeps coming up is that a good dish doesn’t need to be over complicated, it just needs to be true to the creator. 

I can think of 1 million different ways this can apply in the marketing world — I see a lot of marketing campaigns trying to be everything to everyone, which leads to no target audience connecting with the content. 

So go back to what you or your brand is passionate about, and make sure those passions are shared with your audience (if you’re not sure, write them down, and ask your audience via Instagram Stories). 

And remember — if you like a piece of content or a marketing idea and you feel really passionate about it, most likely your audience will also.
In a pasta state of mind. Old school bolognese and homemade pasta with an obscene portion of hand-dipped ricotta is the perfect foil for this dreary weather. #allthecarbs #bolognese #comfortfood

We just debuted our last lunch for the season, which will run till October 31. First course - Heirloom Tomato Salad utilizing late season tomatoes from the garden and layered with Bellwether Farms Ricotta, Lemon Cucumber, Tomatillo Sala Verde, Hidden Rose Apple and Shiso Verjus vinaigrette with house made brioche croutons. Paired perfectly with a crispy Chardonnay with structure. Everything but the Ricotta from our garden. Ricotta from a few miles away. Seasonal, local, delicious.  Yum!😋
What better way to kick off Santa Rosa Turkey Trot than with this picture of Cara? She has run with us for years now and each time shown the spirit of Thanksgiving.
