|Melvin, the store manager at Cherry Grove Farm (just outside
Princeton at 3200 Lawrenceville Road) is a consummate professional.
He's knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his products, especially the
handmade, raw milk cheese for which Cherry Grove Farm is known. Beware
of Melvin's free samples, though: there's no way you'll walk out of his
store without a couple of wedges! The quality and flavor of the cheese
is outstanding and it's a relative bargain. We wholeheartedly recommend
the Herdsman and
Melvin moonlights as a drummer in his punk band Stomping Ground, billed
as "razor sharp hard core." His heartfelt music admittedly plays
to a small, unique and dedicated young audience but it possesses the
unspoiled exuberance one would hope to find in every work of art.
Melvin exemplifies the verity that a spirited pursuit of a single
passion is contagious to every aspect of life.
