Sausages - Not just for the grill

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: article, newsletter, recipes, sausages

Betsy and I love having sausages around to cook with as an ingredient. They are our quick go-to meals and we enjoy making up easy variations with the seasonal veggies we have on-hand. Here are some tips and our favorites.

Flavor is key

One of my favorite food authors emailed about a video he put together recently with a world famous French chef because it made him think about TC Farm and our amazing chicken (I sent him samples years ago when we started). After watching, I knew you'd enjoy...

Nothing beats free eggs!

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: member news

Anyone who has been reading this blog or following us for a while already knows we like to talk about our hens.  Egg laying is a naturally cyclical process.  Each winter, we usually give our hens a month off.  Because it is good for them.  But also because hens naturally lay fewer eggs in the winter.  Of course, the flip side of that is that hens in late spring are laying eggs…



Saffron Lamb or Beef Stew With Lemon and Fig

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, newsletter, beef, roasts, lamb

One of our all-time favorite meals.



Quick show of hands

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: Member News, farm tour

It's still a couple of months off (July 15 will be here fast!) but we're trying to get a feel for how many people might attend the Co-op Farm Tour or the potluck BBQ we are throwing for our members afterwards. If you could take the time to let us know if you are interested, that would be awesome!
