Farm Girl Note: Farm life

The team has been staying busy on the farm this summer! Its hard to believe that we are flying through the month of August! Chores start bright and early where a team sets off to milk cows and bottle the milk, while another team loads up the old farm truck and heads out to tend to the poultry. A few hours later all the cows are milked and taken back to fresh grass, the chickens are moved to fresh grass and fed, and everything is cleaned up and put in order. Everyone heads inside where we “feed and water” the people with a hearty breakfast and Bible time. Then we disperse and work on other chores around the farm and in the house. The farm life is a lot of work but it’s such a joy!

Farm Girl Note

The past few warm days have been absolutely wonderful! We have really been enjoying this beautiful sunshine; and it has really been helping out a lot with all the farm jobs that need to get done:-) The hustle and bustle grows more and more as the spring and summer seasons quickly come upon us. Plans and preparations for our Fourth Annual Open House are beginning, and the outdated chicken house for our broilers had to be taken apart and rebuilt. We all gathered around the white board as we planned and sketched out how this chicken house would be built, to make it even more effective. These are just to name a few of the fun projects that are being done around the farm along with daily life. Washing eggs, milking cows, loading deliveries, watering gardens and the list goes on. But we would not trade this life for anything! The lessons we learn and the time spent together is worth everything.

Customer Review:

“Want to tell you all about how wonderful our turkey was! Thank you so much for a moist, tender and flavorful turkey that we all loved and ate sooooo very much of.!!!!!
We enjoyed the beautiful fall day last week and the drive out to pick up the bird and to see your lovely farm in its awesome location.”

~ Satisfied Customer

Farm Girl Note:

 

 

Farming life is so exciting it rarely slows down, but winter is approaching soon where we hope for a little more quiet. This Friday, with several friends, we will be processing our last batch of birds: the Turkeys! Then Saturday we will have a pickup day here on the farm. Turkey pickup day is always a fun day seeing lots of friends and customers along with selling our turkeys.

 

A few days ago two of our boys who usually do the evening turkey chores were out hunting (tis the season), my sister and I headed up to the turkeys. As we drove around the corner of trees we saw that all the turkeys had escaped their fencing and were roaming the whole top of the field and tree line! The sun was sinking

quickly behind them. We had been expecting a quick stop. “I don’t believe it!” laments my sister as we pulled to a stop. Both of us surrounded the flock, opened a part in the fence, and shooed the majority of them inside but there were still about 10 reluctant ones hanging around the outer edge of the fence. As we both turned to get them, the turkeys in the pen began sneaking out! I jumped back to the opening. While Sheila gathered up the last few turkeys I did my best to keep the flock of huge

turkeys in. Over all, after the fence was pinned closed and all the fence stakes stomped in a few more times for extra security, we fed the turkeys and headed to our next task, happy that it would only be about 1 week more of tending to the turkey flock… I’ll share about processing day later though;-).

 

Give thanks both in the good times and bad! Since Thanksgiving is so close I will say that I am thankful for all of our customer and friend support! Without the Lord and you all this farming venture would be impossible! So thank you for supporting our farm and family. What are you thankful for today?

Turkey Brine and Cooking Suggestions!

Brine and Cooking Directions

Ingredients:
1 Our Fathers Farm free range delicious healthy turkey 🙂 (this also works with our chicken, just reduce ingredients)
2 1 bottle of sweet white wine (chardonnay is what we prefer)
3 bouquet of fresh herbs if you can acquire them: parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
4 fresh garlic 4-6 cloves peeled and smashed to release flavor (i smash them with the end of a knife handle)
5 1-2 onions peeled and quartered (optional)
6 1 C kosher sea salt (i use Himalayan sea salt)
7 handful of rainbow peppercorns (or plain if you prefer)
8 water and ice and a cooler

Method:
first dissolve salt in a small amount of warm water in a large stock pot as well as you can and add about 2 cups of ice to cool the water. Next add the peppercorns, fresh herbs (you can use dried if you like. about 6 Tb total), garlic and onion followed by the bottle of wine and cold water until pot is full. Place turkey breast side up in cooler. Pour your pot mixture over all and add ice and water until turkey is covered or nearly. Turn turkey around in mixture a few times to coat and let it rest breast side down in brine. I push the cooler to the “dark side of the deck” and check it at least one time daily to turn it around and add ice if needed.

On cooking day: remove turkey from brine to the kitchen sink (I discard brine under the deck). Rinse well and allow to dry. Melt 1-2 sticks of good quality butter and more wine and herbs and pour this over your turkey before cooking (if you desire… you can substitute with olive oil).
Suggested roasting times vary and recommendations are below. The most accurate measure is with a meat thermometer placed in the thickest “leg part” 180 degrees is recommended. I check for doneness by wiggling the leg and seeing if it’s loose and also by piercing at the thickest part and checking for clear juice not pink. You don’t want to overcook your turkey! We sometimes cook breast side down and then use silicon baking mits to grab and flip the turkey at the end to brown the breast and make crispy skin. This is a two man job :-).

Gravy:
Use the pan juices from your turkey. I use organic corn starch to thicken, but you can use organic flour. Here’s How:
1. First you make a slurry. For each cup of liquid you want to thicken, start with 1 tablespoon of cornstarch in a small bowl. Add an equal amount of cold liquid and stir until a smooth paste forms. This is your slurry.

2. Whisk the slurry into the hot, simmering liquid that you want to thicken. Bring to a boil and simmer until any starchy taste has been cooked away. Don’t cook longer, though, as the starch may break down and the liquid will thin out again.
Roasting times are for a preheated 325 degrees F. oven.
Approximate Roasting Times for Stuffed Turkey:
Turkey Weight Hours
6 to 8 pounds 3 to 3-1/2 hours
8 to 12 pounds 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 hours
12 to 16 pounds 4-1/2 to 5-1/2 hours
16 to 20 pounds 5-1/2 to 6 hours
20 to 24 pounds 6 to 6-1/2 hours
Approximate Roasting Times for Unstuffed Turkey
Turkey Weight Hours
6 to 8 pounds 2-1/2 to 3 hours
8 to 12 pounds 3 to 4 hours
12 to 16 pounds 4 to 5 hours
16 to 20 pounds 5 to 5-1/2 hours
20 to 24 pounds 5-1/2 to 6 hours

BONE BROTH:
One musn’t forget this all important element of your farm raised healthy turkey! Save all of the bones 🙂 and skin and pan juices that didn’t get used or enjoyed. Put the bones in either the biggest stock pot you have or in a crock pot. Add 2 Tb raw apple cider vinegar with the mother or 1 C white wine, peppercorns, 2 Tb sea salt, garlic and onion (peeled and smashed if desired). Cover all with water and cook for 12-36 hours. Strain out bones (and if using a small crock pot repeat). This makes a nutrient dense broth that can be used for sauces, soups, stews or enjoyed straight out of a mug as is. I add my left over veggies: sweet potatoes, roasted pumpkin or potatoes etc and puree them to make a delicious creamy veggie soup.

Farm Girl Note “Autumns Glory”

The summer seems to have sped by! Now here we are in one of my favorite months. The reason it is my favorite is because of its beauty.  (Not because of it getting chilly  🙂 Summer on the farm is much more busy than winter but I like the warm days, beautiful sunshine, and out-door frolics of summer:). Here we are speeding up to frosty days. We do have lots of fun when the snow comes though! Snow ball fights and extreme sledding are just to name a few:) I am thankful for all the changing seasons God has given us. I know this winter holds many new changes for everyone lots of school is planned and new dreams for each life. What is October’s glory? It is the crisp air, golden leaves and sparkling blue skies that all gather and make you swell with joy!

If you feel heavy laden and that your cup is not full remember “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Farm Girl Note “Septembers Small Things”

Life is SO busy that it’s hard to put it into words! I could go on about the daily grind of it and make us all tired :-). But there are so many everyday surprises!  When  I see every little thing with full optimistic eyes it all changes! The boring ol’ scenery turns into beautiful sunshine and amazing reminders of our creator everywhere. The most annoying task can be transformed into a new beautiful adventure!

One morning, early this week, we welcomed a small new life to the farm. One of our heifers was unintentionally bred too early.  (The bull broke through into a pasture uninvited or unknown to us)…  So this morning, we found this small cow a mother with the tiniest little calf next to her. We brought them down to the barn for milking as usual, but this new mother was not bonding with her calf like normal.  Sometimes this happens when it is the mother’s first calf.  Because she doesn’t know what to do, she rejects her baby. So the calf was rejected and we carried it to a stall in the barn where we could take care of her (the baby calf). It has been fun to feed and take care of this tiny delicate creature! She is less than half the size of a regular calf.  When I would have to usually be wrestling and sitting on top of calves to feed them she simply stands there blinking her long eye lashes at me and drinks. What a precious reminder of innocent life this little calf is. Now this little calf and her mother are just animals. But to our farm and business they are important! The same with the lives of other humans each life matters! God knows all life, loves all life, and rules all life from the tiny people to the elderly people we are all HIS own!

John David

Farm Girl Note

On a fine, but hot, summer day I was nearly at the end of my hike to the hen house to do my evening chores. In one hand I had dog food (for the Great Pyrenees Guard Dog on post) and an egg basket, while the other hand was sometimes occupied by John David’s little hand.  He was more often diverted by a big cricket hopping in front of him or  a pretty flower… As I walked a long with the little blond head bouncing next to me I stopped to turn on the pump for the hens, in my momentary pause John scampered on to the hen house, “No harm” I thought as I kept going.

When I got to the hen house I fed and petted the dog, and also fed and watered the chickens.  I then looked around the house hastily for John but he was nowhere to be seen… as I hurried up to the chicken house door I saw a small boot disappearing through the small chicken door (the tiny one cut out for the chickens to use!). I got to the door and carefully opened it and there, proudly standing in the middle of the chicken house, with happy hens clucking around him, stood John with a huge smile spread across his face.  He reached up to me with a brown egg in his hand and as I looked at him he cheerfully sang “EGGS!” I caught him up in a big hug and then we finished collecting the other eggs “heggs” he says, and carried them home. As I went along I pondered on that little scene.

The thought came to me of how so many little kids and even adults do not know where their food comes from. Of course if you ask an adult where  milk or eggs came from they would say cows or chickens, but do they really know how those chickens live or what they are fed? I am very thankful for all that I know, but it is saddening and scary at how the industry has really been able to hide the truth behind faux happy stories and pretty pictures. We all know it’s not all glamor and fun out there in the world of industrial food production. There are some hidden secrets that we should know.

Now I am not a food freak, but I have been educated in the truth.  The Lord has given us amazing bodies and he has also given us the choice on how to take care of them!  I strive and hope to keep my body nourished and strong so that wherever God calls me I can go and serve Him. Keeping our bodies in a state of fitness and energy is necessary so we are equipped for life’s challenges!  I am so thankful for the good real nourishing food our family is blessed to raise.  I know it is helping us to all grow healthy and strong.

It is wonderful to know that our chores, all the sacrifices and hard work,  help so many other families become healthy and strong too.

“Now then we are ambassadors for Christ…” 1 Corinthians 5:20.   We are God’s lights to shine in the darkness.  Be strong and of good courage!  More important than being mighty in body is being mighty in spirit! Remember:

HE WILL NEVER DIE HE WILL NEVER FAIL YOU! JUST TRUST AND HAVE FAITH IN HIS MIGHTY POWER!

FOR HE HAS SAID I WILL NEVER LEAVE THEE NOR FORSAKE THEE!

FRESH Chicken

John David and Josh unloading the chicks.

 

What’s so special about this chicken you may ask. Well let me answer… pasture raised chicken fed NO-SOY and Non-GMO grains! Here are a few differences those three things make in producing a quality super food!

 

Sadly you are not safe eating the meats that are available in the grocery stores. They try to make you satisfied with happy green labels that say all natural or cage free etc etc. But what really is under that label? What are you feeding your family?  Just say no to CAFO…Watch this to see.

 

Here are some disturbing facts that researchers have found:

 

  • Over 90 percent of all chicken meat and eggs sold in the US come from confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs)
  • One hidden health hazard of CAFO foods is food borne illness, which last year alone struck more than 19,000 out of a population of 48 million residents; 38 percent of illnesses were caused by salmonella
  • Drug-resistant infections from contaminated foods are also on the rise. In 2013, the Environmental Working Group found antibiotic-resistant bacteria in 39 percent of raw chicken parts… read more mercola.com
