DOMA Coffee has been roasting quality, organic coffee for 21 years. We were the first certified organic roaster in Idaho! We source ethical coffee and love what we do.
We use our business as a vehicle to do good in the world. Our theme for 2020 is “Do What Matters,” and, man, that has turned out to be pretty powerful. Challenging times, indeed. What a great time to bring out the best in all of us. Kinder, gentler, citizens of the planet rather than consumers. A great time to support each other on a community level. Over the years, we’ve made connections to build a culture, grow and support environmental causes, and work together to do good. In 2019 we talked about “Love People, Love the Planet” and in 2020 it’s “Do What Matters.” We’re all for combining the two as we move forward together.
Hello from Cocolalla! We’re Sara Marshall and Steve Stevick, the cheesemakers, farmers, dreamers, owners, milkers and caretakers at Eagle’s Dell Farm. Yes, we work hard, but this life is truly our passion.
As cheesemakers, our style reflects our personalities… adventurous, spontaneous, and creative. We love exploring and making a wide variety of fresh, ripened, aged and dried cheeses using recipes we’ve gathered from around the globe, and occasionally (sometimes by accident!) we’ll come up with our own creations to add to the mix. We love the rich history behind some of the cheeses we discover, and due to the varying and sometimes lengthy aging times for each cheese type, you’ll find a different selection from week to week depending upon what’s mature and ready in the “cheese cave”.
Having both goats and cows that we personally milk daily on our farm, we’re able to monitor the changing milk of the seasons (or breed) and match our creations to sync well with the butterfat and quantity of our milk. We’re careful to feed our girls only the highest quality alfalfa and grass hay, along with some specifically blended grain for our milking team, which keeps them all healthy and producing lots of sweet, butterfat-rich and creamy milk for us. Our farm management practices focus on clean, natural, preventative care, so our animals are healthy, happy, pampered producers.
Our small farm started as a dream almost a decade ago, and it’s grown from a handful of goats just a couple years ago to peaking at over 50 goats during kidding season, including Mini Nubians, Nubians, Lamanchas, and Nigerian Dwarf, along with our latest addition of two beautiful Dutch Belted Cows and a calf. We also have a garden and small, young orchard to produce some of the fabulous fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables we’ll offer in our bundles as available.
Visit our website to learn more about us, see photos of our farm, and in the off-season you can still get our handcrafted cheeses with our local pick-up or in-state shipping options. We were so honored and excited to make this our market home, and become an active part of this wonderful community here at Kootenai County Farmer’s Market! We look forward to meeting and getting to know each of you!
Juaquetta has been selling her hand spun yarns at the Kootenai County Farmers’ Markets since 2006. The wool and alpaca she uses are sourced from small, local farms. She does all the processing herself — from washing the wool and dyeing, to spinning it into one-of-a-kind rustic yarns.
She also creates knit and crochet patterns for her yarns. In her booth you will find a rainbow of unique yarn, as well as hats, scarves, and shawls — all handmade by Juaquetta.
She learned to spin yarn in 1992 while living in Minnesota, and her BS degree in Home Economics from Iowa State University, gives a good foundation.
Her workshop is located on the Washington-Idaho state line, and looks out over the north Idaho mountains. As she spins, she watches the sky over the mountains — from sunrise to sunset, cloudy and clear skies, the view is always amazing. Inspiration comes from life. Every colorway of her yarn has a story, stop by her market booth and she will share a few with you!
