Welcome to Miami Creek!

Thank you for your visit!  We had a great 2013 season at Paola Farmer’s Market, and I must say, I’ve met some great people.  What a wonderful atmosphere, location, and products!  I am so happy to have supplied the hospitality table with our coffee last year and we plan on doing it again in 2014!

Milking is done for the year and our Alpine does are pregnant and expecting starting mid-April.  I can tell you that I sure do miss having fresh milk available to us.  After having real milk, it really is startling to try the store bought stuff!  I didn’t think I could find a better place for it than in my fresh roasted coffee… that was until I made a batch of chevre!  We’ve done a lot of experimenting with our dairy products, and finally can offer fresh chevre (see the Menu link above).  With 2014 around the corner, I’m hoping to be able to offer yogurt and fresh ice cream occasionally.  Both are truly a special treat!

All of our produce is chemical free.  It is naturally fertilized and kissed by the sun.  Amazing flavors happen when items are fresh and grown naturally.  This not only includes fruits and veggies, but also applies to our animals.  We want to share those flavors with our customers.

To keep up to date on our offerings and where we’ll be, subscribe to us on twitter @MiamiCreek.  Also, please sign up for the newsletter.  Once spring hits, we’ll send out regular updates to the products that are available.

We have lots planned for the 2014 season.  Included in those plans are a few dramatic upgrades to our website here.  Scheduled appointments for product pickup, deliveries, and online payments will allow a seamless purchase of our offerings with minimal effort.  We look forward to serving you with some great natural foods produced right here on our farm!

  • 4-6 cups Whey

  • Pepper to taste
  • ½ onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic pressed
  • 2 tablespoons Butter

  1. Wash your rice to remove excess starch
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium heat
  3. Add rice to skillet and stir well
  4. Add onion and garlic to skillet and stir well
  5. Add ½ cup whey and stir - cook until liquid is absorbed by rice
  6. Continue to add ½ cup whey at a time until rice is cooked and no longer crunchy
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste - this is a great time to add fresh herbs
