Our October meeting was hosted by Turner Farm in North Haven, a ferry ride from Rockland. Despite an overcast morning, we got a tour of the farm and all of its projects (cheese, pork, beef, chicken, turkeys, eggs, and lots of vegetables), a wonderful lunch, an informative workshop on yogurt making and lactic cheeses, and then had a delightful ride in the sun back to Rockland.
