Thanks to the walk-in freezers at Elmwood Stock Farm, you’re able to access organic, pasture-raised, Berkshire pork all year round, with the exception of some of the most popular cuts that sell out quickly. Yet we’re reminded of the seasonality of meat as we make the slow turn into fall.
With the warm weather crops well on their way, we have a sense of how the season is shaping up. With more than 25 years of growing vegetables and 21 years of organic certification under our belt, the list of crops we focus on has matured, taking the longer view of what is good for you and the farm, both.
You read in this space about how your food is grown, but rarely do you get to know the people behind your food. Ann Bell Stone, John Bell and Mac Stone are the managers of the sixth-generation Elmwood Stock Farm, leading teams of field crew, delivery drivers, farmers market employees and office staff.
We’re excited to announce that all of the beef that you receive from Elmwood Stock Farm is now Wagyu-Angus beef—still 100% grass-fed, dry-aged, USDA Choice grade, organic and born on this family farm just outside Georgetown, Kentucky. This cross has been in the making for years to improve the beef quality, specifically the marbling, which gives beef its taste and texture.
Part of our responsibility at Elmwood Stock Farm is to educate our community as to why we choose to produce food in a regenerative, holistic system. The past year has made it difficult to gather, and we are so happy to offer in-person farm tours again. The next Behind the Scenes at Elmwood Stock Farm Tour is Saturday, June 12!
