Frozen Bloody Butchers – 2 gallons so far. They’re so easy to throw in the crock pot with a roast, or into the soup pot or whatever. I just wash them and freeze in bags, and then take out as many as I need.

I’ll  be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until 1 with:

Tomatoes – Brandywine, Giant Belgium, Azoychka Russian, Limmony, Kellogg’s Breakfast, Cherokee Purple, Aunt Ruby’s German Green,  Green Giant, Black Krim, romas, American Original Beefsteak, Bloody Butchers and cherry tomatoes.

Cukes, tomatillos, savoy cabbage, 4 kinds of potatoes, sweet potatoes, okra, red & sweet onions, a variety of eggplant, green peppers.

Lots of customers ask about what to do with tomatillos. These are the 2 favorite things I make with them: Smoky Tomatillo Salsa and Chili Verde. I went my whole life thinking green chili would be weird, man I was missing out.

I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts: filet, flank, skirt, flat iron, ground, stew, philly steak, cube steak, ribeyes, NY Strip, sirloin,  brisket, eye of round roasts, bone-in chuck roasts, boneless chuck roasts, sirloin tip roasts, short ribs, liver,  osso bucco, bags of soup bones.

We have hot dogs (skinny and quarter pounder), beer brats-these are quarter pounders, sliced corned beef, sliced pastrami and sliced bologna.  Made from our 100% grass fed Angus beef, no added nitrates or nitrites.

Ground beef special – Buy 5, Get 1 free, and a special on  cube steak and stew beef – 20% off.

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


Last week after reading that post on potatoes (that I copied into the newsletter) I tried steaming them for my potato salad, instead of boiling. Wow. I’ll never boil again. So much more tender and melt-in-yo-mouth.


The new potato “lifter” – like BUTTER!  Remember we used to have the Junior Johnson potato digger?  We’re still finding parts of that in the field. The last 2 years I tortured myself with a middle buster.


See you tomorrow!
