Market Stuff for December 29.

I don’t have any pictures, because there’s only mud…so depressing. I just went into the hoop and took this one of lettuce right before I thinned it. It’s even soppy in there from it raining in the side curtains and I can’t close them because then everything will get all slimy and croak. Sigh. Know any jokes?

Since the lettuce was planted way too thickly I have a ton of baby lettuce thinnings so I can have an actual green vegetable in my burrito bowl tonight, which somehow reminded me of this Balsamic Pot Roast recipe. I forgot about it and haven’t made it in forever but it’s so good! It calls for chuck but I’ve always made it with sirloin tip roast. Since it’s gonna rain for another whole week, why not pot roast?

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until around 10:30.

I have radishes, Covington and Beauregard sweet potatoes, hard red winter wheat and I’m not sure what else yet, and I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts:

ribeye, NY strip, sirloin, flank, skirt, flap steak, flat iron, osso bucco, short ribs, stew beef, 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.

And now, we are proud to be supplying Misfit CLT Beer & Food Co with our delicious beef.

See you tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

It can stop raining now. This pasture was solid pristine green just a few days before the cows went in; everywhere they step grass turns to slop. He has to go in and out with the skid loader to feed round bales and even with tracks on the loader it slips and slides around. He’s feeding four 1000 lb bales of baleage almost every day.

See you tomorrow!

๐Ÿ™‚ I may have sent Jake into insulin shock bribing him with 4,000 treats to let me put a bow on his bootay.

I’m pretty sure this is the first year ever decorating the tree while it was snowing. That was so fun!

Market Stuff for December 8.

That is the face of a dog waiting for her cookie.

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until around 10am.

I just have a couple bags of spinach and arugula, sweet potatoes, the last of the turmeric, hard red winter wheat. I probably wouldn’t be coming except there were some pre-orders, because I have to find my sled and my snowshoes ๐Ÿ˜‰

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, flap, 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.

We were supposed to get our next beef back from the processor so we’d be re-stocked this week but it will be next week.

I already blanketed all the horses. I’m bad to wait until the last minute because I never believe the weather people, and then I’m draggingย  a hundred pounds of blankets out into the sleet and freezing my fingers off fastening a thousand buckles… but in fact I pulled all their blankets out earlier this week and replaced broken straps and re-waterproofed them, and ordered 2 new blankets and everybody is good for wintery mix!!

See you tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚
