One of my favorite organic vegetables is at peak season right now! Sweet potatoes seem to hit the spot during cold weather, and can be enjoyed with easy preparation on a busy weeknight or on the weekend. To set the record straight, sweet potatoes are not yams. We do not grow yams in this […]
The heritage turkey hens laid their eggs, and we hatched them in the incubator, back in the springtime. They’ve been living on our rolling pastures since coming out of the brooder barn at a few weeks of age. This represents the essence of farmer optimism: turn an egg into the centerpiece of the Thanksgiving feast, and have some fun while doing it.
Now that we have an online store, a Fall CSA Farm Share and a Winter CSA Farm Share, we take the responsibility of producing food year-round more seriously. Here as the days get shorter, growing into the colder months is on our minds.
For all the work involved, being a farmer does have its perks, and eating wholesome, organic foods through winter is one of them. The Elmwood Stock Farm Fall CSA Farm Share enables you to eat like your farmer, too.
As turkey production began to be concentrated and industrialized, someone mistook their cautious curiosity for stupidity and labeled them as dumb. Spend a few hours with them out here on the farm, and you’ll realize nothing could be further from the truth.
Summer veggies are so short-lived in Kentucky, I tend to eat my weight in them while they’re available. Especially when we keep our cooking methods simple, they just seem to vanish off our plates, right before our eyes.
We have been going to farmers markets for a long time—27 years as market vendors, and longer than that as shoppers—and would like to share some hints and tips on how to eat seasonally, with style.
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.
The chickens are happy, the eggs are good for you, and no chemicals were released into the environment in their making. Read about how laying hens are kept on pasture at Elmwood Stock Farm.
We have often heard customers say the organic eggs from the store are not as flavorful as Elmwood Stock Farm eggs. Our birds live on pasture, not just have access to pasture. It seems chickens that live on pasture eat more grass and clover and insects, and this not only meets the organic regulatory requirements but also imparts real flavor to the eggs.
