Medias in Res - Definition
"Medias in res" is a latin term for when the story starts in the middle and not necessarily at the beginning. You join us here at LARK'S MEADOW FARMS in the middle of a story that began long ago and is far from its conclusion. We are learning along the way and we hope that you will come along on our journey. There is much to explore in the world of cheese!

Pleased To Meet You
They called us when they were a few days out and asked if they could visit. What was expected to be a short tour, turned into a few days and all of us on the farm were sad to see them go. When they got here, they were in desperate need of a shower and some rest. We introduced them to our family tradition of tinfoil dinners made in the fire pit and as conversation ensued. We quickly found that there was much we had in common. Topics ranged from sheep teets to educational issues to favorite ice cream flavors.
In spite of their exhaustion Kevin and Caitlin were diving in to try things out (like milking sheep at 4:30 am, making cheese and pitting cherries) on the farm. New friendships blossomed. They were even gracious in the onslaught of our children's affections, bravely dealing with all the little girls who were vying for their attention. We talked them into staying as long as possible and were sad to see them go, but we admire what they are doing and didn't want to deter their progress on their tour.
If you want to see what they have been learning about food, agriculture and our farm check out the blog at http://headwind2011.blogspot.com/2011/07/cheese-thats-goodidaho.html.
