Marcoot Cheese & Schlafly Beer Tasting

We raised money for a cheese press for the Marcoots a few years ago and they want to thank you, Mr. and/or Ms. Fair Shares Member by giving you a $5 discount to the May 3rd Cheese and Beer tasting at 2:00p.m. at the farm. This is a great opportunity to see where your cheese is made and how we're all a community supporting agriculture.

As a special bonus, our own UCity involunteer Stephen Hale will be there personally to represent Schlafly Beer and lead the guided beer and cheese pairings with Amy Marcoot. Discover how the flavors of both the cheese and beer transform, meld, and complement one another with a variety of pairings that will highlight the distinctive flavors and characteristics of each.

Call the creamery to book your spot by THIS Friday to get the special Member price.

View the event details on Marcoot's Facebook Page. See you there!


Tip: Tip for Sunchoke Soup

Here's a quick trick for sunchokes. They need no peeling, just a good washing and they will replace potatoes in any soup you like. Wash them well, slice or cube them and toss them in. They will thicken every dish they are added to and bring a great flavor beyond the standard potato.Read more


As both a vendor and a member, I've found Fair Shares to be a wonderful organization to be a part of. It has opened my eyes to a whole range of farmers/producers in the region that I may never have had the opportunity to come in contact with if it weren't for my involvement with Fair Shares. And you folks all rock!
