Notes from the barn yard: 

Ethical meat workshop -Last week Nathan and Josh attended a two day workshop put on by ACORN (Atlantic Canada Organic Regional Network). One day focused on beef and the other on pork. The speaker was Meredith Leigh, author of The Ethical Meat Handbook, as well as a butcher, farmer, and educator. Meredith's key point was that: ethical meat must be from an animal that has had a good life, a good death, a good butcher, and a good cook. The responsibility of ethical meat extends beyond the farmer, and all the way through the supply chain, ending on the consumers plate. 

We are expecting baby pigs from two sows in the next two to three weeks. They will be pure bred Berkshires.

Recipes:

Mary Berry's absolutely favorites: Sausages and potato supper. Easy and filling, serve with a cabbage salad and you've got a meal, and depending on how many are eating, leftovers too!

Simple sear roasted bone-in breasts with shallot herb pan sauce!

One-pot cheesy turkey (or chicken) Tamale Pie....YUM!

 

Have a great holiday and we will catch up with you in the new year!!
