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.

One Roast Chicken at a Time

We consider chicken our specialty. As you know, our chickens are Certified Organic by NOOA, Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World, and raised outdoors on beautiful pasture. But that’s not all… We also raise a slower-growing breed called Freedom Rangers; these lead a more healthy and active life than typical excessively-fast-growing industrial chickens and are therefore much more flavourful and healthy on the plate. And this year, for the first time, our chicks come from non-GMO parent flocks!

Even out on the ranch…

…we’re feeling the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.  

I have to admit, when we first started hearing news about the emerging virus, we thought we would be relatively isolated from the effects out here in the boonies. In case you’re dreaming of a simpler life in the country right about now, I’m here to report that we’re not immune to the effects (forgive the pun).
