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!

Everyone Needs a Sous Chef

Posted by Jack McCann | Tags: article, member news

Cooking is so much more fun if someone else does the prep work and the long cooking steps. Our new Sous Chef meals are the perfect thing for those who want a fantastic meal without all of the work and dishes, but still want pasture raised meats and organic spices. We've worked and worked on our favorite recipes to include them all in this fantastic mix. I can't wait to hear what YOU think and to adjust the next batch!

Our chicken is raised over twice as long as pretty much all other chicken. This leads to stronger, healthier birds and fuller flavors. But it also can make cooking it more challenging if you don't know what to expect. Here, we take the time to explain a little more about the HOW and the WHY of cooking TC Farm Chicken.
