Market Stuff for December 1.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until around 11 with:

beautiful spinach and arugula, some craptastic brussels sprouts, turmeric, Covington and Beauregard sweet potatoes, hard red winter wheat.

I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts:

ribeye, NY strip, sirloin, skirt, osso bucco, short ribs, philly steak, cube steak, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, liver, soup bones, hot dogs.

Ground beef special – Buy 5, Get 1 free.

Bulk pricing on our beef: quarters, halves and wholes – $3.50 lb hang weight plus the cost of processing (.75/lb)

We are now also offering (almost) half-quarters – not quite 1/8 of a cow (60 lbs) for $460. This is a great savings over the regular price you pay per piece, but quarters, halves and wholes are still the best deal.

See you tomorrow 🙂

Market Stuff for November 17.

Last weekend was the first time I’ve ridden since May or June. The wind was really blowing, which is super spooky for some horses – namely mine. He snorts like a pig the whole time (or like a wild stallion, however you want to look at it) but he has had a 6 month vacay from work so he’s just got to get back into the groove.

The ground is so saturated that every step a horse or cow takes turns grass to mud. They put their foot down and it just slides. Ugh, the pastures. Then driving the tractor through to bring hay in…you can’t even imagine the mess. Just where I feed the horses, the mud is so deep it’ll suck your boots off. Ready for this sunny week coming up!!

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until 11. I won’t be there next week.

I have a little baby arugula, a few savoy cabbages, turmeric, 2 kinds of sweet potatoes, some fresh herbs: sage, parsley, mint, chives, and hard red winter wheat.

I love Thanksgiving. So much delicious food. We never have pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving because I haven’t ever been able to grow pumpkins. I make this sweet potato pie instead, and everyone says they like it better! However this year I actually grew some mini pie pumpkins called Cinnamon Girl. They are SO GOOD. One pumpkin makes only one pie, and then I eat the whole pie. Hells yeah. I think there were like 10 of them and now I’m down to five. I usually make something like this healthier version. Mostly on Monday nights when Shane goes to eat with his friends. Pie night 😉

If I don’t see you tomorrow I hope you guys have the very best Thanksgiving week! I’m so grateful to have such amazing folks as our customers. We appreciate you so much. <3 See you tomorrow or in a couple weeks!

fresh horseradish root! To use it, scrub and scrape it, then grate it and mix it into some white wine vinegar to preserve it in the fridge, or just add it to mayo, sour cream, bloody Marys, etc.

horseradish root, turmeric, 2 kinds of sweet potatoes, hard red winter wheat, some herbs and a little ginger. I pretty much had a crop failure but there were a couple plants that made it.

Someone let me know that I shared the wrong link for my breakfast recipe last week so here’s the correct one! I’m still hooked on it.

It seems like we should be slowing down now, but we’re still super busy! Shane is trying to get his triticale drilled for next year, and I’m still pulling up my plastic and getting it stored for next year so I can get my clover cover crop planted, still planting in the hoops and we are renovating the house he grew up in to move in there. It’s taking a really long time. It was built in the 70s so you can just imagine what it needs. So exciting! But I just finished getting the garlic planted and the hoophouse that had tomatoes in it this year is finally ready for planting. I have arugula, spinach, radishes, leeks, green onions, collards, lettuce coming up in the other hoop.
