An EGGceptional Recipe!

Please don’t call the PUN police


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!
