Visit Zingerman’s Creamery at the Downtown Ypsi Farmers’ Market and get free goat cheese with your purchase

If you happen to be going to the Downtown Ypsi Farmers’ Market today (or any other Tuesday this month), do yourself a favor and print out this new coupon for Zingerman’s Creamery. If you do, you’ll get some of their “Little Ypsi” aged goat’s milk cheese for free, assuming, of course, you buy something else from them. Here’s how they describe the cheese, which, I’m told, is akin to a French crottin. (I have no idea what that means, but it sounds good.) “It has a beautiful, buttery-yellow rind,” they say, “and a paste that runs the gamut from dense and soft when younger to firm and flinty as it ages.”

I have no idea why it’s called the Little Ypsi, but I wonder if, just maybe, they’re getting their goat’s milk here. Given that Peter Thomason raises goats downtown, and his daughter Aubrey is a Managing Partner at Zingerman’s Creamery, it may not be that far-fetched… I’ll make a note to ask… If so, I think that would be really cool.


If you do try it, let me know if you like’a the cheese, alright?

    I was reading somewhere last week about the amount of cheese that we ingest as a nation, and how quickly that number is rising. I’ll look for the article. It was staggering.

    “Americans are eating 23 POUNDS of cheese a year but beef consumption is lowest since the 1950s, reveals US diet ‘report card’. The hefty serving of cheese, teamed with increased consumption of fats and oils has resulted in our overall calorific intake soaring to 2,535 a day.”

    Thanks to all of my cheese eating, I too have a beautiful, buttery-yellow rind.

    A little bit of embarrassment wouldn’t hurt either.

    I’ve always posted coupons on the front page. And I intend to keep doing it. But thanks for sharing your thoughts.

    And they were out of the Little Ypsi by the time I got to the market this evening. They were nice, though, and gave me another type of goat cheese in its place, which Clementine devoured with dinner.

    One last thing that’s probably worth noting… When local businesses buy ads on my site, there’s no quid pro quo concerning coverage on the blog. I don’t, in other words, promise to write articles about them in exchange for their becoming advertisers. I just sell them ads at super-competitive prices. The other stuff, I do because I want to, and because I like them, and want for them to be successful. Case in point, this ad from Zingerman’s. I’ve been writing about the company for years, as I like and respect what they’re doing. (They employ about 600 people, more than half of whom live in Ypsi, and pay a living wage.) And this is the first time they’ve ever purchased an ad. And, guess what? I’ll still say nice things about them in the future, once this add is long gone.

    Somewhere on the site, if you go back a few years, there’s a long article on my decision to start running ads. If you look around, I’m sure you can find it. It wasn’t a decision I took lightly, but, after giving it some thought, I decided that, if I could help local businesses that I liked, and, at the same time, make enough money to pay for the hosting of my site, the occasional technical support, and a new camera every five years, it was a pretty good deal. And that’s what I did. And, so far, I’m happy that I did it.

    Wasn’t Little Ypsi a punk house in Ann Arbor? It’s just called the barn house now or something. I’m guessing someone who lived there works for Zingerman’s now.
