Recap: Tasting + BYO Board Class at The FARM Institute

It’s been a whirlwind few weeks and I’m finally getting around to recapping the Build Your Own (BYO) Board class that we held back on May 11th. We partnered with The FARM Institute and their awesome event space out at Katama Farm served as the venue for this great event! Participants tasted their way through […]

Morgen and Aurora sharing a mother-daughter moment over a piece of cheese.

Friends, forgive me! It’s been nearly 3 months and I haven’t officially announced… we had a baby! Our daughter, Aurora, was born in early December. She made a dramatic entrance that included a helicopter ride to Mass General in Boston. After a 1 week stay in the NICU, we returned home to the island and […]

Portland Cheese Shop Visit! The Cheese Shop of Portland

A few months ago, my husband Alex and I took a little babymoon to Portland, Maine. We had heard from a bunch of island pals that Portland is a great foodie city, and an easy enough drive. I was having all sorts of crazy cravings that simply could not be satisfied by our on-island food […]

Whoa – has it really been 2 months since I’ve mused? How dare I?! There’s been a lot going on over at MV Cheesery HQ. I’ve been prioritizing the success of Catboat Coffee Co. and as a result the cut-to-order offerings of the cheese case are still in the works. I also attended Cherry Bombe […]

Monger Musings 008 Let’s talk shop, baby! It’s been a few weeks since we’ve opened Catboat Coffee Co. with our “regular” hours. I put “regular” in quotation marks because we are still adding to our schedule every few weeks. And we are still adding things to the menu and items to the shelves every few […]

Monger Musings 007 Wow! And just like that, we have a coffee shop up and running! The Open Houses were so well received, we’ve decided to *officially* be open from Thursdays-Sundays, 9AM-3PM. Easing in with a lean crew and a limited menu of offerings. Crawling before we are walking before we are running. Very excited […]

Monger Musings 006 It’s happening, it’s HAPPENING! Catboat Coffee Co. officially received our “Common Victualler’s License” from the Town of Tisbury. This means that we can finally sell food items from our storefront. Which means, it’s time to order some cheese! Both the MV Times and the Vineyard Gazette covered the Tisbury Select Board meeting […]

Monger Musings 005 Super Bowl! Valentines Day! Some pretty cheese-filled “holidays” in my book. How did we fare? Did we survive? Did we eat more Jarlsberg Dip than we should’ve? Yes, absolutely. I have a feeling that once the store is up and running next year, these events will be a killer one-two punch. I’ll […]
