How "The Omnivore's Dilemma" Made me a Farmer

Whenever anyone asks me why we decided to start farming I always tell them about reading The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan and then Joel Salatin's books on farming.

Plus, a lot of the organizations here spread the message as well. For example, at the large tech company my husband works they spend a lot of money doing things like serving pasture-raised meats in their company cafeteria--and they aren't alone. So it’s a very present topic."

French Baked Chicken

I'd like to share a special recipe with you...do you love our chicken? I know I do...and I am always searching for exciting ways to cook a whole chicken. With the temperature dropping and the days becoming shorter, I myself LOVE to cook nourishing meals to keep me and my house warm with comfort and a full belly.

Stop by the farm during out business hours (10-4) and pick up your pastured whole chicken so you can experience this delicacy!
