Malorie Meadow – Cheesemaker extraordinaire

Thousands of miles from France, in the small town of Sonoma, Malorie tends to her cheese. She is the grand-niece of the famous Gerard Meadow, who settled in Sonoma back in the 1930's. Gerard honed his cheesemaking technique whilst
living in the old stone building that Mr. Viviani (The Sonoma Cheese Factory)
used to produce his cheese.
Malorie has taken her cheese to the heights of a form of art.
At least that is what she believes and who, indeed, would argue?

Mes amis

Introducing my very dear friends of the forest:

~ Beringer Bear ~
Beringer loves to eat. Fish, bread, a lemon tart, he is happy to partake in all of it. Foraging for berries is his favorite thing to do, next to listening to Monsieur's monthly violin performances..he has been known to look as though he is sleeping during my performances, but I choose to believe that he is simply drifting away among the notes.

~ Rousel Fox ~
Rousel (little red one) is young and a bit mischievous. He is constantly on the move and makes sure that I am safe in the forest. He doesn't wander too far from our friend Berenger, as he too enjoys a good tart now and again. He enjoys quick climbs into trees to visit the creatures of the forest, though sometimes he is met with worried stares.

~ Mignon Rabbit ~
Mignon is happy. She is a friend to all. I often find her watching butterflies or hopping here and there amongst the flower fields. She has been known to hum, and giggle. Mignon is also known for her ability to think through problems and come up with various solutions. She often can be found reading or "researching" as she calls it, for she loves books, almost as much as I do.

Je suis éveillé! (I'm awake!)

And may I ask, what have you been up to while I have been slumbering?

Summer's a-comin!

I've had a chance to read a bit this past Spring...
but when I do, I get ever-so-sleepy on my comfy hammock.
I must tell you more when....I..... awaken.....zzzzzzzz.

Bonjour! Welcome to all who have found us.

Every now and again we'll set out on an adventure,
but in the meantime, please stay awhile for a cup of tea
and a piece of peanut specialty!
