Super simple. Delicious. Healthy. 


  • Green Beans
  • TC Farm Bacon


  1. cut/clean green beans if needed.  I like to cut them into half or thirds
  2. Slice bacon into strips, larger and thicker if you want more fat in the end bacon or thinner if you want something crispier. 
  3. Place bacon strips into a heavy pan over fairly high heat, after a bit of fat has been released, add the beans
  4. Cook until both are at the desired doneness. 

Why is TC Farm bacon SO good?

Here are the key reasons our bacon is so different:

  1. Better pork.  Specifically pasture raised, heritage breeds fed a no-soy diet. This makes a huge difference in the flavor and quality of the meat. 
  2. Long smoke.  We smoke our bacon a LOT longer than normal, 16 hours or so.  This adds a lot of flavor, but also results in more loss during the smoking process (that's the primary reason our bacon costs more)
  3. Organic. Ok - organic spices and no synthetic nitrates don't make it taste better, but you'll feel better knowing it is healthier for you and better for the environment. 

Try at Lakewinds

Not a member? No problem.  

Stop over at lakewinds and you'll find both TC Farm bacon sold in packages or in the meat counter, a conventionally spiced and shorter smoked version in bulk for less expensive (but still using our amazing TC Farm Pork). 

Stop into the Minnetonka, Chanhassen or Richfield stores and stock up on the best bacon in the world. 

The bulk bacon at Lakewinds still uses TC Farm pork, but is less expensive due to a shorter smoke, bulk discounts and conventional spices

Organic spiced, long smoked TC Farm bacon is available pre-packaged at all Lakewinds stores.
