What Else is Happening at the LBF?

Christmas Cow

We have a couple beef and pork shares left.  We’re finally getting more dates and with the lul in market from January – April, we’re hoping to make a couple more shares available. 

Our egg production is way down as happens when the winter hits.  Chickens drop their egg production by around 30% in the winter.  This means less eggs in stock so order ahead of time if you are taking advantage of the 3 and 5 dozen egg discount.  They’ll still be in stock but at limited times until Spring when we’re near tripling our flock!

The barn has power!!!  Just one plug so far, but we’re using that to its max, haha.  Now that we’re wired for power, over the next couple months we’ll be adding lights, fans, heat, and all the comforts we (and our animals) will appreciate.  Water is connected and just waiting on a couple animal auto-waters to be installed before turning that on.  Sharing this because we want the barn to be a place to meet you, hang out, and share more of what happens here on the farm.  Part of our dream with this farm is to share what we do, and what better way than an area where we can kick up our feet, enjoy a cup of coffee, and enjoy a birds eye view of what goes on here at Longbottom Farm.  Coming 2023!!

Thanks for following us and allowing us to serve you.  If you have questions or would like to share your thoughts, give us a shout!  Have a  wonderful week and Happy Holidays!

Easy Stuffed Peppers 

With Chorizo & Ground Beef

Stuffed Chorizo Peppers

I don’t know about you, but I love an easy dinner recipe. By the end of the day (when I’m running out of steam) I need a simple, easy and nutritious meal that doesn’t require a trip to the Himalayas or the milk of Ugandan sea goat.This often leads me to making the same old recipes day after day. But no more! These delicious stuffed peppers are packed with flavor and pasture raised protein.They save well and can be made ahead (or even frozen) for even more flexibility. With added vegetables it’s a home run in our house!

Ingredients: 

Optional:

  • 1 cup cooked rice or cauliflower rice
  • 1 ½ cup spinach

Directions

 

1.     Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly coat a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray oil and add just enough water to cover the bottom of the dish. Cut bell peppers from top to bottom and remove seeds. Place peppers cut side up in prepared baking dish.

2.     In a skillet or dutch oven, brown chorizo and ground beef over medium heat until fully cooked.  Add marinara (and optional cooked rice and spinach if desired) cook until well incorporated, then remove from heat and add cheese. Stir well.

3.      Spoon filling into pepper halves and bake for 30-35 minutes until peppers are tender.

We like to serve with a bit more cheese and sour cream.  That’s it and Enjoy!

A Few Reminders

Napping Dogs

We are sold out of Pastured Poultry for the year but plan to begin April of 2023.  Apologies and thanks for your patience.  

We’ll be taking pigs next week and will be fully restocked on Kielbasa, Ground Pork, and Bratwurst.  Bratwurst and Kielbasa have been a huge hit this year and thank you to everyone that provided feedback on this.  We should be stocked pretty well on these and double the dates next year to make sure we stay in stock.  

Just a heads up, chickens drop their egg production by around 30% in the winter.  This means less eggs in stock so order ahead of time if you are taking advantage of the 3 and 5 dozen egg discount.  They’ll still be in stock, but we may need a few days if you’re ordering larger quantities.

Apologies to everyone waiting on Beef Shares.  The demand has way outpaced what we can produce, but we’re working on getting more processing dates and beefing up (see what I did there ) our herd.  Thanks for your patience.  

That barn is proceeding way behind schedule but the shell is up.  Once electricity and water are installed, we’ll be good to go.  This will become the new pick-up area with freezers and expanded pick-up times and days!  Farm store and more to follow.  Hoping for late November but likely early 2023.

Beef Short Ribs

Versatile, Delicious, and ON SALE!!

100% grassfed short ribs from Longbottom Farm

Every other day, Lexi and I take a long walk from our house to the other side of the farm.  It’s a chance to take in the morning serenity, get some exercise, and get a good look at what’s happening on the farm.  This morning, the temperature was 57F and it was the first hint that it’s mid September and Fall is approaching.  It’s probably my favorite time of year as I start to imagine all of the projects of which I’ll get done about half, haha.  It really is a great time though.  The weather gets cooler, leaves change color, the humidity disappears, and just a nice break from the hot / humid summers we get here. 

Imagining Fall also gets us thinking about comfort foods, one of which is Beef Short Ribs.  These are one of our favorite cuts as there is so much you can do with them.   Traditionally braising is one of the favorite methods.  Braise on the stove in your favorite sauce (red wine, vinegar, and rosemary), add some veggies if desired (onions, carrots, and potatoes), or just go with a rub.  There’s really no wrong way.  Here is one of our favorite recipes from The Stay At Home Chef.  Give it a try!

Grilling is also another way to cook short ribs.  Grilling adds that smokey grill flavor and takes a fraction of the time (compared to braising) to cook.  Marinate in your favorite sauce an hour or so before cooking (Red wine vinegar, red wine, and rosemary), then sear for 5 or minutes per side.  I usually give the edges a sear as well.  Cut into single ribs and serve on top of a bed of mashed potatoes.  I’m getting super hungry typing this. 

As if versatility isn’t great, they’re also very economical.  A win-win in our book.  And if that’s not enough, we happen to be overstocked with Beef Short Ribs at the moment.  That means a discount for you!  Today through Sunday, we’ll be offering 25% off of our Beef Short Ribs while in stock.  Just enter coupon code shortribs25 at check-out and that’s it.  We’ll also be offering 25% off our Beef Short Ribs at the Charlottesville City Market this weekend as well.  Just let u know you saw this email, and done.  Prepare for Fall with Grass-fed / Grass-finished Beef Short Ribs and let us know how you prepared these delicious cuts.  

What Else is Going on?

Sunset

We are sold out of Pastured Poultry for the year .  It was our hope we’d have the barn set up with electricity, water, etc for processing, but we’re not there and won’t be there before the weather turns.  After October, it’s too cold to raise broilers, thus we plan to begin April of 2023.  Apologies and thanks for your patience.  

Bratwurst and Kielbasa have been a huge hit this year and thank you to everyone that provided feedback on this.  We should be stocked pretty well on these and double the dates next year to make sure we stay in stock.  

Just a heads up, chickens drop their egg production by around 30% in the winter.  This means less eggs in stock so order ahead of time if you are taking advantage of the 3 and 5 dozen egg discount.  They’ll still be in stock, but we may need a few days if you’re ordering larger quantities.
