In 2009, P.A. Bowen became one of four Maryland locations to begin making raw milk cheeses under a state pilot program. The Brandywine, MD farm now produces two types: Prince George’s Blue and Chesapeake Cheddar.
Owners Geoffrey C. Morell and Sally Fallon Morell also happen to be the founders of the Weston A. Price Foundation, an organization "dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet through education, research and activism."
Why do we mention it? P.A. Bowen is among the vendors setting up shop at today's (Thursday's) Riverdale Park Farmers Market, which runs from 3 to 7 p.m. at the town center building. Drop by for a selection that also includes:
- Bread and baked goods from Stone Hearth Bakery (Frederick, MD)
- A wide array of meats from Groff's Content Farm (Rocky Ridge, MD)
- Apples, canned peaches, cilantro, mustard greens, tatsoi, arugula, turnips, spinach, popcorn, and potatoes from the farm stand.
