Baetje Cheese Tasting at Fair Shares

We're celebrating our 10th season of Fair Shares with a variety of events including tours, tastings, happy hours and more. We encourage members to invite friends, family, coworkers and neighbors to join us at these events. Let's Combine Communities in our Combined Community Supported Agriculture!

Join us at Fair Shares next Tuesday, May 9th at 6p.m.

We're hosting a cheese tasting with Baetje Farm's award-winning cheeses! We were going to charge $5 to cover our costs, but decided to make it FREE!

Baetje Farms' Carrie Bernstein will be on hand to give the story of Baetje Farms and describe the cheeses. We'll Taste an array of delectable cheeses, and members who bring a  potential Fair Shares member as a guest get a $1 discount off a Baetje cheese purchase that night! We'll just write you a receipt for you to pay later.

Feel free to bring a wine, beer or other beverage to enjoy and share (we're sure to do the same). 

RSVP here by Sunday, May 7th.

And you folks all rock!
