Our pigs enjoying the long summer days.
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.
A members' summer/fall favorite. I love this recipe, and had to share!
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...
Garlic Fest is a fun family friendly country fair focused on sustainable and tasty food. We are mostly* donating the pork for the entire event and would love to see you there on August 12th. Click to learn more about the activities and events.
A big thank you to everyone who came out this past weekend to visit us at the Co-Op Farm Tour and our amazing dinner at Tullibee!
If you are coming to the Co-op Farm Tour and Member Potluck this Saturday you might want to know what to bring. Just bring yourself! Okay, here are a few tips for a few more things that you might want to remember.
The 2018 Co-op Farm Tour has been scheduled for July 14th. There will be over two dozen farms participating across the Twin Cities metro area (we are two of them!). This is a great chance to see local farms up close and doing their part to make sustainable, local farming with a purpose within reach for everyone.
Updated: Final menu - SO EXCITED... this will be the best dinner of your 2017. Seriously, bring a friend and you'll be their hero. Tullibee in the Hewing Hotel will be showcasing our amazing Forest Hog at a dinner event being held Sunday, July 16th from 6PM-9PM. Tickets are on sale now but limited in number. Reserve yours today.
The most important tool is a sharp knife. A really sharp knife. Fortunately, there is an easy and inexpensive solution.
Members: Please remember to fully close the delivery coolers during the summer -- even egg coolers!
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…
One of our all-time favorite meals.
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!
