We are so excited to introduce Rooted magazine to you! This quarterly publication from the Moscow Food Co-op is dedicated to food, wellness and community... and it's FREE! You can pick up a copy in the store or read it online here.
Just 26 miles from the front doors of the Moscow Food Co-op, down a beautiful, tree-lined dirt road, sits Brush Creek Farms, the umbrella business which houses Brush Creek Creamery. It is on this rural piece of land in Deary, ID that the Salmeri and French families live. But they do not inhabit this land alone. Five Jersey heifers- Butterscotch, Carroty, Brie, Bluebell and Edna, roam on 100 acres of pasture and provide the dairy with enough raw milk to make cheese for our community’s Co-op, restaurants and farmers markets. The average gallon of milk travels 320 miles from cow to cart, so this minimal distance is a welcome alternative.
