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 😉
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, 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.
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!
