Meet the Dream Team

As we approach the end of the 2021 growing season we are filled with gratitude for the crew that made it all happen. From late nights catching chickens to early mornings irrigating the fields, our staff works around the clock to keep the animals happy, the forage green, the soil healthy, and our customers well-fed. We’d like to take a moment this Thanksgiving week to introduce you to the folks who put the turkey on your holiday table, and how do you really get to know someone? Ask them what they like to put on their burger!  

Thai style veal stir fry

When is ground veal preferred over ground beef?  In recipes like this!  This stir fry is inspired by Thai flavours, which pair perfectly with the sweet, mild flavour of ground veal. Sometimes I find the strong, meaty flavour of our ground beef can over-power the delicate balance of the sweet, salty and sour flavours that make this style of cooking so special, but our veal is just perfect.  So give our ground veal a try in this easy-peasy, perfect-for-springtime, veal of a meal!

The Mud Daubers

We first started farming over a decade ago in Washington state.  At the time we were also running a property caretaking business, volunteering as EMTs with the local fire department, and managing our own off-grid homestead as well as raising meat and vegetables for our community.  After we left, our friends and neighbours Joe and Kate told us they had a nickname for us: ‘the daubers’.  Apparently our constant frenzied busyness reminded them of never-resting mud dauber wasps constantly working to build their nests.
