This quick sausage works well for ground pork or beef and is a nice staple to add to your meal rotation. Works well with dried herbs, but obviously fresh would be nicer.



Meat is even better than socks!

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: article

That has to be the weirdest sentence I've ever written. But it's true. Father's Day is coming up June 19th. Who needs ANOTHER pair of socks? If you're still wondering what to get the old man to say thanks, might we suggest adding a meat package along with your regular pickup? Yum! Or if you're not yet a member, trying one of our samplers? Besides being pasture-raised, grass-fed and better for you, our meats are just about the TASTIEST you've ever had. Wouldn't the gift of grilling be even better than a tie? Find out more!

This is a simple one-pot meal you can make with any bone-in chicken. It doubles as a great dish for entertaining because it doesn't take long to cook, so you can do the work before your guests arrive and just take it out of the oven when its time to eat.

When we were sampling our pork at Lakewinds, everyone was asking for the recipe of the carnitas we were serving. The deli department made up the recipe, so I didn't know it... but I decided to tinker and make up my own adding a few twists -- turned out AMAZING!

True Cost Farm is now TC.Farm

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: article, newsletter, member news

We're really excited about a couple of changes here on the farm. One of the most obvious ones is our name. We've shortened it a little. But that's the ONLY shortcut we take! We're STILL raising and delivering grass-fed, pasture-raised meats raised from heritage breeds with no GMOs and fed organic or transition to organic grains. We are now TC Farm!
