Acres Wild featured in India Immemorial

   Posted by: admin

Acres Wild Farm has been featured in the February 2010 issue India Immemorial by Marianne de Nazareth.    Above is the cover of the issue (so you can recognize it on the stands).  India Immemorial calls itself  ‘India’s First Monthly Heritage Magazine’.  So we are very pleased as you can imagine.

Check it out.  It is hot on the stands still.

New Cheese Outlet in Wellington

   Posted by: admin

We have started keeping our cheese now at Needs, a very old and popular stores in Wellington.   Wellington is about 8 km from Coonoor and where the Defence Services Training centre is (D.S.S.C).

Needs used to be ‘the’ shopping place before others like Tulsi Mall and Cedrik’s Bakers Junction started in Coonoor.  Now the folks at Needs have shown interest in our cheese too.  They said that they were getting inquiries about our cheese and so we decided to try it out as an outlet.  For the time being we will keep mostly hard cheeses.  Soft cheeses and Feta we will give a shot if they move well.

For more information you could call the owners, Kamla and Srichand, at their shop.

Shop Number: +91 423-223-1161

Wine & Cheese Evening Coimbatore Club

   Posted by: admin

Acres Wild was invited by Coimbatore Club (thanks to our dear friend Alan Oakley) to showcase our cheese along with Grover Wine for an evening for their invitees.   We could not have expected a better response.  Most of the guests were trying cheeses like Feta, Haloumi and Camembert for the first time.  Tina and I were really happy that they were a big hit.  Karishma Grover, daughter of Mr. Kapil Grover of Grover wines was there to initiate people into their wines.  Other distinguished guests were Narain Karthikeyan with his wife Pavarna and Mr Krishnan and his wife Sujata Krishnan of Suvai ice creams.  Here are some photos of people appreciating Acres Wild cheeses.

Tina made some Haloumi the other day and that was the first time I had heard of that cheese.  Now it has been a few days with it curing in brine and I tried it plain.  Very interesting.  Now to check out some recipes.

Camembert Box – Araka Nut Leaf

   Posted by: admin

Ok this is a bit premature but could not help putting it on the blog.  We are experimenting making our camembert boxes out of araka nut leaf which is local product and cheap and eco-friendly and all that.  Now are checking out whether it is cheese and fridge friendly 🙂

The slight crack between top and bottom don’t matter as this cheese has to breathe.  Anyway it is packed inside in butter paper.
