In a most unusual turn of events, Goat Lady Dairy south of Greensboro has openings at two upcoming dinners, this Friday evening and Sunday, I think for brunch, though I can’t figure it out. Meals are served in the farm’s passive-solar dairy barn, constructed with pine, oak, poplar and cedar harvested off the farm. It’s a beauty.
We went almost three years ago, and it was one of the first real outings I did with the book in mind, before I had a contract. The food was amazing, and of course featured fresh seasonal produce, meat from the farm, and lots of farmstead cheese, both as appetizers and in the dishes. The impassioned post-dinner tour by farmer and family patriarch Steve Tate gave me extra energy to pursue the daunting task of creating and writing a farm-travel guidebook. Thanks, Steve. I’ll be back for dinner, but not this weekend, unfortunately.
If y’all miss out this time, there are other dates to be reserved. You’ll want to pack a cooler to take cheese and meat home, though what I really wanted to have was a baby goat!
