As just reported in the New York Times’ Diner’s Journal blog, Milk Thistle Farm has closed.
For supporters of local farms, this is such a loss and very sad news indeed. The Hesse Family produced the sweetest, creamiest, and most wonderful milk in the world.
It was like pure childhood in a glass.
You will be very missed.

That’s a real bummer. I was thinking recently about CSA and more community supported and sponsored farming. We don’t really have that here in New Zealand. I wonder if there is a way to make it easier to connect farmers and their fans?
It is such sad news. I’m not sure how it is in other countries, but the way that laws and regulations are written here, it makes it so hard for small farms to compete with huge corporations. Maybe in the future as people gain more and more awareness of how our food system works, it will be easier?
Are there any community farms in NZ?
