New Year Goals

There's something about the changing of calendars that inspire people to throw out their old habits along with the spent calendar. Maybe it's new aspirations or just the fact that no one wants to buy a new wardrobe after too many Christmas cookies. Whatever the reason we can help with your healthy eating goals!

We planned ahead and stashed plenty of pastured pork and chicken for the winter months, when the taste of last summer is so far from our memory and this summer still seems so far away.

So, to put the delicious in your healthy eating, we have put together a finger licking chicken and pork special.

2 packs chicken breasts (2 breasts per pack)
2 packs chicken thighs (4 thighs per pack)
2 packs chicken patties (3 patties per pack)
2 packs plain ground pork (1 pound packages)

all for $48.00 which is 20% off of regular price.

This special gives you 26 servings of delicious pastured protein for about $1.85 per serving.

As an added bonus, with the purchase of this special, you can purchase additional in-stock items for 20% off as well.

Contact Carie to arrange a time to shop or, for your convenience,  line-up a delivery!

Fall Pork Harvest


It's time for the fall pork harvest! Our Tamworth pigs have been grazing all summer and are cleaning up the tree line as I write this. They are enjoying a plethora of hickory nuts and fall grasses. In order to ensure their nutritional needs are met, we also supplement with a small amount of locally grown non-gmo pig feed.
We have 3 pigs available to be sold in pork packages or as whole or half hogs. The farmers market will be over this week and soon the snow will fly. Pastured pigs store vitamin D (yep!, that vitamin you get from the sun) in their fat so you really can enjoy the taste of summer, all winter long, when you fill your freezer with our delicious pork! Contact us today to place your order!

Family Traditions

Do you ever wonder how traditions get started? Why do we do the things we do and when we do them. Maybe you're not a nerd like me? I'll admit...I do have a motive behind my questioning. We just happen to have several large turkeys left from the fall harvest. I wondered to myself "Self, do people eat turkey for Easter?" The answer is, not traditionally.

This led me to even deeper thinking, luckily for me I had already had plenty of coffee and could muster deeper thoughts, BUT WHY? It made me think of the story about pot roast. Maybe you know the story? The one where the woman is fixing pot roast and slices off the ends and her friends asks why she is slicing off the ends and she says "that's the way my mother did it and she taught me to cook" and so she asks her mom "why do we cut the ends off the pot roast?" and her mother says "that's the way my mother did it and she taught me to cook" so then the mother asks her mother "why did you cut the ends off the pot roast?" and she says "because it wouldn't fit in the pan I had"! 🙄

So, do you know why we traditionally eat ham for easter? I'll say, my suspicion was correct. Back in the days before mechanical refrigeration hogs were harvested in the fall when the weather was getting colder so the meat wouldn't spoil while it was being cut into those precious chops, bacon and sausage. Think refrigerator temperatures. Turns out those hams that were set to cure in the fall just happened to be ready about the time of easter! It was convenience food!

So aren't we lucky to be living in the days of deep freezers? We can think outside the proverbial "small pan" and eat turkey for Easter if we want to! So, if you're like me and didn't get enough turkey at Thanksgiving you're in luck! Eating a turkey for easter will be just as convenient as ham. AND to further entice you to break with tradition we are offering these turkeys ON SALE!  Regularly  $4.50 per pound now $3.50 per pound. These turkeys are in the 19lb range so that will be about $20 off regular price!  A great deal even if you just want to stock up on delicious, non-gmo, pastured poultry
