Moroccan Ragout - Vegetarian

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, vegetarian, sides, vegan

Betsy always saves ideas for recipes that pile up when we don't have time to cook as much as we'd like. This one she kept around for years until we finally tried it out. We made a few modifications and really like how it turned out!

There is nothing like slow cooked - low temp sous vide pork. The problem is that it just isn't very smoky. Here is a great recipe to combine the best of BBQ and modern cooking techniques.

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!

I love watching new calves hit the ground... they are so amazing and fast at getting up and nursing. Here is a photo of our latest bull calf who's first time mother did a great job bringing him into the world.



Hidden Health Cost of Packaging

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

A newly published study tallies the hidden cost of something we've been watching for years: The packaging commonly used in meats may be causing serious health problems. This report finds the chemicals used in meat packaging may conservatively cause over 1.5 BILLION dollars of damage every year in the European Union. And that is just focusing on two diseases which may be associated with them.

Easy.. this is really easy... Bacon Fat Fried Organic Brussel Sprouts with FAST from scratch Saffron Hollandaise. Yum.



Pork chops with a summer salad and peanut dressing

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: recipes, pork chop, chicken breast

With the snow on the way, we thought a nice summer scene would go nicely with the summer salad. This recipe works equally well with pork chops or chicken breasts. Although the ingredient list looks long, it is so easy to prepare. Everything can be made ahead of time which makes it a great dish for entertaining.



Mushroom Squash Risotto

Posted by Josh King | Tags: sides, recipes, soup

We love vegetarian meals. Rice isn’t something we should eat all the time for a wide range of reasons, but there nothing like a REAL risotto with Arborio rice. Strictly speaking this dish isn’t vegetarian since a homemade broth is essential to the flavor. The broth also adds electrolytes and helps cushion the onslaught of carbs the rice throws at us. This meal takes time to do it right, but it is easy. Just get a glass of wine and have a nice conversation.



Using suet to make soap, bird feeders and more

Posted by Josh King | Tags: article, newsletter

A lot of new members (and even people who have been with us for a while) have questions about our 'traditional foods' What are you supposed to -do- with 'suet' anyway?? In this article we'll talk about how to render suet and make some fantastic things. This is a really rewarding way for many of our members to take things to the next level!
