Bill picked up our Bacon and Sweet Italian Sausage at Noacks yesterday, just in time for a long Memorial Day weekend of cooking with family and friends and of course, BBQ. As always, our Bacon and Sausage is free of nitrates and nitrites.  

A few suggestions for your grill: 

PORK SAUSAGE: Hot Italian, Sweet Italian, Breakfast

BEEF:  Ground, Patties, Kebabs, Flap 

PORK: Spare ribs, Chops, Country Style Ribs, Ham Steaks

LAMB: Ground, Loin Chops, Rib Chops, Shoulder Chops

VEAL:  Short Ribs, Loin Chops, Rib Chops, Shoulder Chops

We'll be at the SK Farmers Market tomorrow, Saturday, from 8:30 to Noon at East Farm. Hope to see you there!

As always, email us if you'd like us to bring and hold something for you at the market. We have most of our regular inventory in stock, but will be bringing mostly grilling cuts tomorrow. 

Here's to a dry weekend for us all - in addition to grilling to do, we have hay to cut and crops to plant!

 Happy Friday!

This week I made Veal Picatta with our Rose Veal cutlets.  I use the Emeril recipe, it's easy, quick and delicious.  Bill loved the dish with cutlets but reminded me that he loves it with Veal Steaks too.   I thought we had sold out of the Veal Steaks and I have told some of you at the market that we did not have any left, for which I apologize. 

We are always thankful for your support of our farm, and we'd like to give something back to you this week with a 10% discount on our Veal tomorrow (8:30am - 12 noon at East Farm) and this coming Tuesday at the Marina Park Farmers Market (2 - 6 pm).

Our Veal cuts and regular prices are below:

Short Ribs          $  7.00/LB

Ground veal        $10.00/LB

Stewing Veal       $11.00/LB

Osso Buco           $12.00/LB  (crosscut shanks)

Shoulder Roast    $15 .00/LB (rolled, boneless)

Loin Chops          $17.00/LB

Rib Chops            $17.00/LB

Cutlets                 $18.00/LB

Tenderloin            $ 22.00/LB

 As always, email me through here or message through Facebook if you'd like us to put something aside for you so we'll be sure to have it when you get to the market. Hope to see you tomorrow or Tuesday!

Thank you, and have a wonderful weekend.

Tomorrow is the last Indoor SK Farmers Market of the season! Our next markets will be outdoors on May 9th (Tuesday) at Marina Park and May 13th (Saturday) at East Farm.

To mark the last indoor market, we'll have 2 specials tomorrow:

 

  • Our delicious BH Ground Rose Veal* at the same price as our BH Ground Beef ($8.00/lb.)  
  • With our Ground Pork back in stock,  we'll have our Beef/Veal/Pork  (1lb. of each) "meatball special" ($24) .

 *I experimented with Shepherd’s Pie made with our Ground Rose Veal this week and it was so good.   I typed up my recipe on a handout for those who want it (what's better than delicious AND super easy?).

 

Hoping we all have a sunny weekend, 

Roberta

Bone-in Pork Loin Roast - serves 4

Easter is April 16th

We are now taking orders for our Easter Lamb  (the pic is a half leg, boneless).  If you would like a roast cut - whole leg, half-leg, rib roast - we encourage you to order at this time because it is rare that we have any extra after the orders are taken and we do not have rib roasts cut unless pre-ordered.  If there is  something else you would like - lamb rib chops, loin chops, shoulder chops, stew or ground lamb - please let us know and we'll set that aside for you.  There is very little ground lamb from lambs, so please order this if you have your heart set on it.  

 

We also have our Boneless Hams in stock for Easter this year, nitrate/nitrite free and in the 3# range, and one Boneless Beef Tenderloin Roast (4# ish).  

 

Please order by replying to this email.   We have taken a few early orders already, and all orders will be filled on a first-ordered  -  first-served basis.   When ordering "leg of lamb", please indicate whether you want whole or half, bone-in or boneless, and for a half leg bone-in, if you want the cap or shank.  (Email me if you have any questions about those cuts.)  The whole legs, bone-in, will likely be in the 6-8 pound range. Let me know what size you'd prefer and when I get the specific weights I'll match them up with the orders as they came in, then contact you. We will do our best to provide you with the cut and size you want.

 

Delivery of Easter Lamb orders will be at the SK Farmers' market on April 8th and 15th, or at the farm by appointment.    We just got our Boneless Hams and Boneless Beef Tenderloins back and can deliver those at any Saturday market when we get an order.

 

 We thank you for your loyalty and support of our farm.  Knowing that you appreciate how much we care for our livestock 365/24/7 in order to provide  a special, high quality product for your table means more than you can imagine.

While I love to cook, on most days my goal is just to have something to put on the table at the end of a long day.  This meal took about 15 minutes to put together in the morning (not counting the thawing), and it was ready to serve when we walked in.  If you’ve never tried spaghetti squash as spaghetti, try it.  With apologies to those who like it plain, the blandness of the spaghetti squash makes it the perfect substitute pasta. You can of course use pasta in place of the squash.

 

Beef Shanks in Pasta Sauce over Spaghetti Squash 

AN EASY CROCK POT SUPPER

(Serves 2 with leftovers for 1 lunch) 

2 Browning Homestead Beef Shanks (about ¾ lb.)

1 qt. your red pasta sauce (make your own or your favorite jarred sauce)

1 smallish Spaghetti Squash (whole)

½ cup red wine (optional) or water 1 cup water  

 

SHANKS:  Thaw beef shanks in the vacuum sealed packages in a bowl of cool (not cold) water.  Cover shanks with flour, then place floured shanks in hot cast iron skillet in which you have heated 2 tbsp. olive oil.  Brown lightly on both sides. Turn heat down under skillet and move shanks to a crock pot.  Add half cup of water (or substitute red wine) to the skillet and stir remains together until blended (30 seconds). Pour on top of shanks, and then cover shanks with your favorite red sauce. I used one quart of sauce over two shanks.  Cook on low for 8 hours. 

SQUASH:  Cut the spaghetti squash in half (not lengthwise), remove the seeds, and place the two halves in another crock pot into which you have placed 1 cup of water.  Cook on low for 8 hours. Remove squash from crock and, using fork, remove squash strands from skin into bowl.

Serve beef and sauce over squash.  The beef should fall off the shank bones and the sauce has the benefit of the rich flavor of the marrow and pan sauce.

We will be at the SK Farmers Market tomorrow, 8:30 a.m. to Noon.  If you've emailed an order, we'll have it with us.   Our market freezers will not be as full as when Bill moves them, so if there's something special you would like, please email and let me know to bring it.  This howling wind and cold temps today have me thawing stew beef for tomorrow and a chuck roast for Sunday.  We just got two of our beef back yesterday and we had a new, thin sliced "Sandwich Steak" cut.  I'll be making that for dinner tonight, to try it out.

 

Thank you again for all the thoughts and prayers for Bill, he is feeling better and continues to improve. His physical activity is still restricted so he won't be at the market tomorrow. 

 

Looking forward to see you tomorrow!! 

Roberta

First and most importantly, thank you for all your prayers and good wishes, for sharing your experiences with similar health crises and for your kind offers of help. Bill is home on IV antibiotics, and thankfully improving.

 

Although I cannot get to the SK Farmers Market tomorrow, I  am planning to be back next Saturday, October 29th.  The focus here on the farm continues to be taking care of Bill, all of the livestock and harvesting our winter feed. 

 

If you would like to pre-order for October 29th, please email me.  We will not be able to fill the freezers like Bill does so I'd like to  bring what you would like.   You may also call the farm at 783-9239 and leave a message for what you'd like and if you'd like to come to the farm to pick up an order.  

 

As life goes on, we've  had two new litters of piglets, and have brought Athena inside to a comfortable stall for farrowing (farrowing means having her piglets).  Click on the blue for a peak at Snout's first litter .

Thank you,

Roberta

Browning Homestead Farm

When it gets to September I start thinking about preparing meals in advance.  Fall and winter meals lend themselves to advance preparation and slow cookers, and I love my slow cookers. 

Since we've had our Browning Homestead Veal, so many customers have told me they use beef, pork and veal in  their meatballs that I had to try it.  These meatballs (click on link) are made with Browning Homestead Ground Beef, Ground Pork and Ground Veal (a first using veal for me, but now I understand what you've all told me - thank you!).   

I make my meatballs, freeze them on a cookie sheet, zip or vacuum bag them in packages of 6 or 8 (there's only two of us but leftovers are a must!!), and then toss them frozen in the crock pot with my sauce in the morning. No browning, spattering, no square meatballs.  IMHO, the way to cook the best tasting meatballs is to fully cook them in the sauce this way. I made the ones in the photo with one pound each of our BH beef, pork and veal.  45 orbs of Matunuck deliciousness :) 

If you're in the mood to make meatballs,  buy one pound each of our Ground Beef, Ground Pork and Ground Veal and get all three at a discount. Regularly $26, the "Meatball Special" is $23. 

We also have Veal Loin Steaks and boneless tied Veal Shoulder Roasts that I haven't publicized - indescribably delicious.

 

From the farm,

Roberta
