Gobble Gobble Gobble...

It is that time of the year!  Our Turkeys are out on pasture and we are taking orders for our Awesome (per our customers) Turkeys!  They will be ready in November --- they range 15 -25#'s for $3.65/#! 

You can send in your request with your normal order and Annette or myself will put you on the list.  They will be frozen fresh... we are still loving on them like all of our other animals.  I hope to post a video of them, they are pretty funny when you walk up to them they are silent but the minute you talk to them they all respond...gobble gobble gobble.

Have a great day!

Purple Porch Community Night Win goes to....

Chorizo (Mexican) Meat Loaf

Created by Chef Chris Hebron and made by Michelle Hebron

Tonight we had our Purple Porch Community night and from what I hear (because I was home sick) there was awesome food to be had...many many different types of food! 

And one of our rendations of Meat Loaf won....(people voted by putting money in paper bags and at the end of the night they were totaled.)  We also brought our other italian meatloaf that is also on this site.
Here is the recipe...I unfortunelty didn't get any at home, because they ate it ALL!

Chorizo (Mexican) Meat Loaf


2 eggs, beaten (FFC)
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons snipped fresh parsley
1 cup Spanish Rice
1 handful pea tomatoes (FFC)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried leaf sage, basil, or oregano, crushed
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound lean ground beef (FFC)
1 pound lean Chorizo (Mexican) sausage (FFC)
1/2 cup Salsa (drained)
2 tbl ketchup


1. In a medium bowl combine eggs and milk; stir in rice, onion, parsley, salt, sage, and pepper. Add ground meat and Chorizo (Mexican); mix well. Lightly pat mixture into an 8x4x2-inch loaf pan.

2. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 1 to 1-1/4 hours or until internal temperature registers 160 degrees F. Spoon off fat - not needed if you use our meat. In a bowl combine salsa and ketchup; spread over meat. Bake for 10 minutes more. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting into eight slices.

3. Makes 8 servings

Can't wait for next month's entry...we enjoy trying to figure out how to use our ingredients.

Have a great night.

Pretty Girl with Pretty Squash...

Jorja May was excited to get her picture taken with some of our squash...I know which is prettier, but you be the judge!  I love the way Squash looks... I am still developing a taste for eating it and cooking it, so for now I love to just grow and sell it!

Hubbard Squash
Hubbard squash is a tear-drop shape. They are often used as a replacement for pumpkins.

Acorn Squash

(Acorn squash (Cucurbita pepo) is a winter squash with distinctive longitudinal ridges and sweet, yellow-orange flesh. )

Have a great day!
