Market Stuff for October 12!

Hi!

I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow with some eggplant, potatoes, hot peppers and wheat – and our grassfed Angus beef in these cuts:

filet, ribeye, NY Strip, sirloin, flank, skirt, flat iron, flap, ground beef, stew, cube steak, philly steak, short ribs, osso bucco, brisket, soup bones, eye of round roast, chuck roast, sirloin tip roast.

The field behind our alfalfa field is planted in cotton and it’s so pretty. Once cotton is ready to harvest they spray it with a defoliant to kill all the green stuff so there’s nothing green and wet to clog up the cotton picker, but they hadn’t sprayed this field yet. I took lots of photos. I just think it’s so cool. So I have some new cotton notecards haha and IĀ  made some big prints for our wall.

So Shane wants me to keep coming to the market with the beef til it’s gone. We have a couple market size steers left and he says if you take them to the auction sale you lose a lot of money, as opposed to selling feeder calves. I’ll be there off and on I guess until they’re gone.

Loving this weather! See you tomorrow šŸ™‚

 

My current situation:

So I won’t be at the market tomorrow, I’ll see you next week or the week after.Ā  I hope you have a great weekend!

Market Stuff for September 27.

Our grass fed, grass finished Angus beef in these cuts: Hot dogs, philly steak, ground beef, soup bones, short ribs, chuck roast, sirloin tip roast, flap steak.

Market Stuff for September 21.

Happy Fall! I was hoping we’d be taking a break this weekend but we didn’t make any fun plans so I’ll be there tomorrow!

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

Chestnuts, hibiscus roselles (for tea), muscadine grapes, Rosa Bianca Italian eggplant, biquinho hot peppers, sweet banana peppers, jalepenos, bell peppers, carola potatoes and hard red winter wheat.Ā  I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished black Angus beef in these cuts:

filet, sirloin steaks, flap steak, philly steak, cube steak, ground beef, stew beef, short ribs, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, soup bones. Hot dogs are here!!

Ground beef special this weekend – Buy 5 lbs, get 1 lb free.

Bulk pricing on our beef: quarters, halves and wholes – $3.50 lb hang weight plus the cost of processing (.85/lb), andĀ almost half-quarters – not quite 1/8 of a cow (60 lbs) for $466. This is a great savings over the regular price you pay per piece, but quarters, halves and wholes are still the best deal.

It’s so dry and dust is covering EVERYTHING and everyone in sight. It looks like the combine is on fire. Shane finished cutting soybeans and hauled the last load in this afternoon. He’s been getting up at 4 am, taking a load to Kershaw then coming back and cutting til dark all week so I know he’s glad to be done.

See you tomorrow!

Yesterday my sister came over to help pick grapes, and then we make the pie filling to freeze for the holidays and a double batch of grape fruit crisp to eat right then and all that, so we picked 2 gallons of primo black muscadines, squoze the guts out, cooked the hulls and pulp separately with the sugar, then after all that work I screwed up the whole batch by not draining the hulls before mixing it all together. Good job!

Oh, and my horse Caratacus – you know, the one I take all the pictures of… the one that can do no wrong… the one that is the most perfect, smartest and funnest horse in the world that I trained myself and has never once even picked up a foot the wrong way? That one. We went riding on Sunday and he threw out the biggest, highest and ONLY buck EVER, sent me straight up 3 feet tumbling through the air landing on my ass. Shane said he looked back and I was literally 3 feet in the air above the saddle.Ā  Never let go of the reins though. We were far from home and I’m not walking all the way back. I remember looking down at my horse from way up in the sky and thinking, there’s no way I’m gonna land back in that saddle.Ā  Somehow I landed like a feather, not a bruise or anything, didn’t even feel it. Got back on and rode on like it never even happened. So weird. He doesn’t even buck when he’s goofing off out in the pasture. I’m pretty sure that was his first buck ever…at age 9. Whatever. Horses.

See you tomorrow!!

 

Market Stuff for August 24.

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

Rosa Bianca Italian eggplant, sungold cherry tomatoes, sweet banana peppers, jalepenos, bell peppers, carola and fingerling potatoes, hard red winter wheat.

We LOVE pickled banana peppers and I do it the lazy way in the fridge: for 1 qtĀ  of pickled peppers I use 2 c water, 1/3 to 1/2 c white wine vinegar/apple cider vinegar mix and 2 or so Tb sea salt. They’re ready in 4 days-ish. Clearly I don’t really have an actual recipe. I like them on my salads and Shane puts them on pizza and nachos. Alas…the vast and deep canyon between our eating styles….and he would love these if only I would make them – they do look amazing: Cheesy Stuffed Banana Peppers.Ā 

I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished black Angus beef in these cuts:

flap steak, philly steak, ground beef, stew beef, short ribs, cube steak, osso bucco, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, soup bones. We’ll be restocked on cuts next week.

Ground beef special this weekend – Buy 5 lbs, get 1 lb free and ***short ribs 20% off and BOGO bags of soup bones.

Bulk pricing on our beef: quarters, halves and wholes – $3.50 lb hang weight plus the cost of processing (.85/lb), andĀ almost half-quarters – not quite 1/8 of a cow (60 lbs) for $466. 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! Come make fun of me while I freeze to death in the 70 degrees.

Market Stuff for August 17.

 

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

Rosa Bianca Italian eggplant, watermelons,Ā  sungold cherry tomatoes, sweet banana peppers, jalepenos, green bell peppers, carola and fingerling potatoes, cucumbers, hard red winter wheat.

I made this healthier eggplant parmesan in the instant pot (10 minutes!) and it was really good.Ā  The eggplant was really creamy and tender. The Rosa Biancas don’t have the bitter taste that regular purple eggplants do and I prefer the texture. I used this sauce recipe – fast & easy, and much more delicious than jarred sauce. And the carolas are the perfect size for these Bacon Blue Cheeseburger Potato Skins šŸ™‚

I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished black Angus beef in these cuts:

flap steak, philly steak, ground beef, stew beef, short ribs, cube steak, osso buccco, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, soup bones.
