An EGGceptional Recipe!

Please don’t call the PUN police

scumptious

This is one of our favorite egg reciepes.  It looks fancy to impress your guest, and is easy to make.  It also combines my love of eggs, bread, cheese, and all that is right with the world.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil or baking paper
  3. Cut three bagels in half and butter both sides and place face down on a baking sheet
  4. Use a cookie cutter to enlarge hole in bagel slightly
  5. Gently crack one egg in each hole
  6. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, everything bagel seasoning, basil and cheese.
  7. Bake for 12 minutes or till desired runnyness of egg.
  8. Top with sliced tomato and enjoy!

Farm Updates

1.  We took cattle to the processor this week!!  We should be fully restocked in the next 2 weeks so keep an eye out on the website and watch those ‘sold out’ signs disappear.

2.  Hogs will be heading to the processor in less than a month.  We’ve contacted those that purchased shares, so get your cut sheets ready.  Otherwise, we’ll be fully stocked with Pork mid next month.

3.  We have plenty of eggs that can be picked up at the farm or preordered for pickup at Charlottesville City Market To-Go (see below).

Also just a big thank you for continuing to follow us and supporting local.  Not being able to provide you with year round product is a change for us, as I’m sure the pandemic has changed life for you as well.  But, we reassess, adjust, and adapt and keep on keepin’ on.  As we continue to adjust to our new abnormal (I refuse to call it normal), we also learn a lot about ourselves and different ways to do things or achieve our goals.  We’re booking dates, expanding our herd, and planning new enterprises to meet our goals of having year round product for you.  You have many choices out there when it comes to food, and we can’t thank you enough for choosing us for your beef, pork, and egg needs.  So THANK YOU, for your support, patience, and following along.  Much more to come!

Happy 4th of July!

Independence Day

From our family to yours, we’re wishing everyone a happy and safe 4th of July.  Like some of you, we’re not going out this year.  Rather we’re making the best of it by shooting off some fireworks in the backyard.  If these last few months have taught us anything, it’s that being with family and enjoying each other’s company is where it’s at.  Be safe, have fun, and Happy 4th!

Happy Father’s Day!

Raising 3 little girls has been an amazing and fulfilling experience.  It’s also been an eye opening experience now knowing the ups and downs I put my father through .  It’s a day we recognize Dads for their love, patience, and guidance.  It’s also, at least for me, a day where I reflect on how lucky I am to be a Dad.  That wouldn’t be possible without the blessing of amazing children and an amazing wife.  They have provided me the opportunity to wear the badge of ‘DAD’, and for that I couldn’t be more grateful.  So to the Dads everywhere.  Thanks for all you’ve done and do.  And also thanks to our spouses, partners, and others that enable and support us in this awesome role we call DAD!  Happy Father’s Day!


Were’s The Beef? .. and Pork?

First off, thanks to everyone for your patience and understanding during these last few months.  The pandemic has been an ongoing reminder of how fragile our food system is (empty shelves, lack of products) but also a reminder that when times get tough, we find our weak links and address them.  This is what you can expect from us over the coming weeks and months.

  • Beef – Back in stock Mid August.  The pandemic has made it very difficult to get animals processed, but we’ve secured dates in July and August to fill the freezers with Grass-fed goodness!

 

  • Pork – Back in stock Mid September.  We have a number of pigs going in for processing late August and mid September so get ready!

 

  • Eggs – We’re overflowing since tripling our flocks so if you need eggs, look no further

 

  • Chicken – This is still in the works, but delayed at present due to pandemic craziness and processor availability.  We’re still hoping for this year but this may get delayed until next Spring.  Either way, it’s coming!
