Mud season is the worst. Especially when you suspect that it’s not just mud 💩

The Not-So-Romantic Side of Farming: Rainy Days at Longbottom Farm

🌧️ Rainy Farm Chores! 🐔🌧️ Today, we’re taking you along as we tackle our farm chores in the rain and ice. 🧊 Sometimes, farming gets messy and all you want is to finish your tasks. That’s exactly how today feels! 🚜💦 But, our animals don’t mind the weather – they’re just hungry and waiting to eat. 🐄🐖 So, we’re out here getting everything done, no matter the weather!

New Products on the Farm!

We have a couple new products this week on the farm.  I’ve been slow to get these posted, but finally they’re here.  In addition to the products mentioned here, we’ll be offereing more new products in the future including beef bacon and smoked brats!  Stay tuned for more to come on those.  First up, we have:

Pork Shoulder Bacon (Smoked & Uncured)

Smoked Uncured Pork Shoulder Bacon: Made from select pork shoulders, this bacon is a treat for those who love their meat natural and flavorful.

Simple Ingredients, Full Flavor: Seasoned with a blend of salt, celery powder, brown sugar, and cherry powder, each slice offers a hint of sweetness and a touch of tang. The spices like black pepper, cinnamon, and cloves add depth to its flavor without overpowering the natural taste of the pork.

Naturally Cured, Gently Smoked: We stick to our roots with natural curing using celery powder. No artificial preservatives here. The smoking process is carefully managed to ensure the bacon develops a subtle, smoky aroma that complements its rich flavor.

Perfect for a hearty breakfast, a savory addition to your burgers, or as a standout ingredient in your recipes, our smoked uncured pork shoulder bacon is sure to become a new favorite in your kitchen. Enjoy the wholesome goodness straight from our farm to your table!

As Authentic as It Gets: This isn’t your average farm product. It’s a pig’s head – eyes, ears, and all. Perfect for those who believe that cooking should be an adventure, not just a chore.

Unleash Your Inner Chef: Whether you’re a seasoned chef or a daring home cook, this pig’s head is your canvas. Create brawn, head cheese, or maybe just an unforgettable dinner party story.

A Nod to Traditional Cooking with a Wink: Embrace the old-school way of cooking with a sense of humor. It’s a chance to connect with culinary history, experiment with unique recipes, and maybe freak out your friends just a little.  We believe in using every part of the animal, respecting the bounty that our land provides. This pig’s head is a nod to that philosophy, served with a side of light-heartedness. It’s a conversation starter that celebrates the cycle of life on a regenerative farm.  It’s a traditional treat that’s sure to get people talking.  Grab our Whole Pig’s Head and get ready to turn some heads (pun intended) in your kitchen.

That’s it for this week!  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!
