Two Delinquent sows. Who pride themselves in letting us know how much they don't give af about the fences we so diligently spend time (and dollars) setting up, mending, rotating, electrifying. Who greeted me on the porch this evening, And who spend afternoons basking on the neighbours front lawn while they have a dinner party, who chase the chickens and attempt to eat the not-yet-ripe pumpkins from the garden just to spite us when they feel their breakfast and dinner wasn't in sufficient quantities for their ever expanding bodies. Who basically resemble dirtier, stronger and larger ill-mannered canines who's "needs" we've reluctantly continued to cater to. #hogsharbour #turnerfamilyfarm . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #pigsofinstagram #soulthings #thehappynow #persuepretty #pastureraised #seekthesimplicity #makeportraits #thepursuitofjoyproject #beautifullife #theartofslowliving #documentyourdays #specialmoments #farmher #iamcountryside #childhoodunplugged #freerangekids #thesepicturesarepoems #farmiswheretheheartis #backyardfarm

The chickens LOVED climbing the rocks and long lush grass in their range... well everyone our last group of chickens is gone. It has been a great first year of raising chickens for us! With each batch we gained new knowledge and experiences that has helped us to grow. We are very excited to start planning our batches for next year to continue to supply consumers with delicious and nutritious protein. ——————————————————————————— The freezer is stocked with whole chickens, halves and quarters. If you or someone you know is interested in purchasing some pasture raised chicken please send us a message. Head on over to @artisan_farms to find out where they are currently selling our chicken if you are local to Toronto or surrounding area. . . #pastureraised #pastureraisedchicken #greengrass #poultry #chicken #sustainablefarming #chickenfarmer #ontag #supportlocal #torontofood #greycounty #greybruce #localmeat

Introducing Feisus! He is so lovely and fantastic, and is living up to all his breeder said he would be. His dam was grand champ in oberhasli class last year and we're very much looking forward to his genetics in the next generations here. We were all quick to fall in love with this little ober buck. Now he just needs to grow! #elkhousefarm #westcoastfarm #westcoastfarming #sunshinecoastbc #pacificnorthwest #pnw #secheltbc #gypsyridge #oberhasli #buck #goatsofinstagram #goats #dairygoats #pastureraised #pastureraisedmilk #rawmilk #breedingseason #goodgenetics #beauty #sweetheart #farm365 #farmlife #farmlifebestlife

The cutest 🐑 in the pasture. There are times when we take a step back to listen. This is what I found in a recent study. Reality: Sheep are actually surprisingly intelligent, with impressive memory and recognition skills. A group of food bloggers and I had such a wonderful Farm to table experience at The Hutching’s family farm. @hutchingsfarm #visitonfarms @ontariofarmfresh #farmtotable #livestock #nature #farm @thefoodiesgroup #farmersmarket #farmlife #farms #farming #picoftheday #foodphotography #torontolife #countrylife #foodie #fall #foodstyling #sheep #sheepofinstagram #sheeplove #sheepworld #pastureraised #farmfresh #farmliving #smallfarm

Watching these guys hold chickens was the best part of the day- so gentle, excited, kind. * Began our 5th year as hosts to Darrow School's Hands-To-Work (volunteer) program. Over the next several months these kids will: pour thousands of gallons of milk (for pigs to eat), get pooped on (by one or more species), learn to dress for all weather, sweat, build muscles, and make us laugh a lot. Today they made up a genre of music and watched me flounder to try and make a Pandora station for it. Now I have free reign on tricking them, and that sets us all up for a good time.

How do you know when you’ve made a successful salad at home? When there’s more toppings than actual lettuce 👍🏽👍🏽 i could honestly eat salad everyday for the rest of my life and be content. Besides, having a limited diet means putting all the foods you CAN have into a bangin ass salad 💛 || romaine, kale, chickpeas, rotisserie chicken, #sugarfree bacon, #pastureraised eggs, roasted parsnips and carrots, cucumbers, snap peas, beets, zucchini, strawberries...dressing is apple cider vinegar olive oil and stevia. All #organic . All mine. #paleo #realfood #healthy #paleodiet #eatyourgreens #saladsforever

#wednesdaywisdom for today is about how we raise our calves. Cattle are gregarious by nature. Meaning cows like being with other cows. Our baby calves are no different! They are raised in a group stetting where they can eat, sleep, and play together! They are fed their mother’s milk because the nutrients and antibodies that they get from the milk will help their immune systems for the rest of their lives! _ _ _ _ _ _ #organic #cows #cow #calf #calves #babyanimals #organicdairy #organiccow #happycow #cagrown #instagram #california #openspaces #pastureraised #farmlife #knowyourfarmer #knowyourfood #babycow #milklife #milk #organicmilk #🥛#🐄#🐮 #happy #baby #cute #animal

When I feel a tickle in my throat, veggies are my immediate go-to over medicine. That, plus rest, and chugging water typically does the trick for a quick turnaround back to health. As you all have heard before: food. is. medicine. . . What’s on my plate: baby spinach, red cabbage, avocado, jalapeño peppers, @vitalfarms egg, beets, alfalfa sprouts, chia seeds. . . . #foodismedicine #nutritiousanddelicious #healthylivingrevolution #meatless #pastureraised #healthiswealth #healthishappiness #beets #salads #veggiesalad #vegetablesalad #eatmoreveggies #eatmoreplants #eatrealfood #wholesomefood #iinhealthcoach #iin #healthcoach #vegetarianrecipes #weightlossfood #fitnessfoods #weightlossfoods #fitnessfood #thenurturantlife #jerseycity

We’ll have some tasty treats for you to sample including a pulled pork taco and a ham and cheese open melt. And orders for Christmas are filling so if it’s a ham or maybe a pork belly you’re after Graze will be your chance to sample our product.

#Repost @centerforfoodsafety - Photos of the flooded factory farms in North Carolina (see our last post) drove the point home – we MUST make our best effort, individually and collectively, and opt out of industrial meat before it’s too late. 🐮 🐮 Last week, we launched a new website, EndIndustrialMeat.org (link in bio), to help you combat climate change, reduce your ecological footprint, and fight back against animal cruelty by opting out of meat produced on factory farms! 🐷 🐷 Since we’re all in this together, we’re asking CFS members and followers (like you!) to combat climate change by pledging to opt out of industrial meat by replacing half the meat you’re eating with humane, sustainably-raised, grass-fed meats and the other half with plant-based sources of protein like beans, lentils, chickpeas, nuts, seeds, and quinoa. 🥑 🍅 EndIndustrialMeat.org also shines a spotlight on the farms raising poultry and livestock using sustainable, humane methods that you can patronize knowing you’re supporting eco-friendly and humane farming methods. 🐓 🐥 Learn more and take the pledge: EndIndustrialMeat.org/pledge #climatechange #climate #meat #industrialmeat #endindustrialmeat #stepup2018 #factoryfarms #animalwelfare #industrialagriculture #agriculture #ag #food #organic #sustainable #pastureraised #certifiedhumane #methane #greenhousegases #cop21 #meat #vegetarianism #veganism #vegan #certifiedorganic #cafos

These chickens. For real. During morning chores we found this mama with a nest under pallets leaned up against the barn with what looked like a couple hatched chicks & a couple more mid-hatch. We lifted her off to take her to the maternity ward coop & found a whoooollleee lot more than just a couple 😂🙄 Lawd have mercy, these over achiever mamas. #ICant

I love grilled flatbread! Deliciously warm, chewy and charred, it really tastes great on its own. You can also use it to scoop up homemade dips, to mop up the juices for whatever meaty dish you’ve grilled, or you can add condiments on top to create a flatbread pizza. Just be sure to make a few batches because everyone will want seconds!

Back to School/Back to Work leaves many of us looking for quick healthy meals to help avoid the drive thru/carry out blues. Never fear Anchor is here! Pair your favorite high protein, grain free or flavored wraps (we chose @flatoutbread ) +veggies +sliced deli meats and Mainland cheese. Serve alongside salad or fresh fruit for the perfect balance. That’s a wrap! #anchordairy #cheddar # #newzealandcheese #wrap #mealprep #dinnersolved #lunchbox #healthyrecipes #pasturegrazed #pastureraised #mealsonthego

PRIME example of why good fences / pens / gates are important with goats!! This is an overflow pen we set up a few years ago with old gates. Usually it’s not a problem but these replacement doelings are small enough to sneak out. First it was one. Yesterday two. Today is three. Time for me to go get some hog panels to put up (we do that with our pasture gates). And if anyone is wondering, yes that’s feed. Our goats are pasture raised, but we do some supplementing for our mixed dairy breed herd that we raise for meat. Occasionally, our Boer - Kiko herd (meat breed) will be supplemented (pregnant or lactating does or at weaning time for doe kids like these girls). As our own hay and pasture quality increases we’re finding less and less of a need to supplement our meat breed herd. #goatfarm #badgoats #goatsofinstagram #badkids #farmlife #mylife #wisconsin #westernwisconsin #pastureraised #livestock #farmerproblems #keepingitreal

I often hear that organic, pasture raised, wild caught food is expensive. And it is. But if you take the packaged foods, processed foods and booze out of your diet, you may be surprised your grocery bill is not as bad as you thought it would be. I’m not saying I won’t enjoy a treat or cocktail. It’s just not going to be a daily habit. #healthyliving #eatinggreen #babyboomer #plantbased #pastureraised #wildcaught

Throwback to when I was obsessed with roasted eggplant 🍆 I want to make some more soon when it gets less hectic here. To make this I just drizzled my eggplant slices with olive oil, added a sprinkle of salt and pepper and roasted them at 375° until cooked to how I wanted them. I topped my eggplant “toasts” with sautéed garlicky kale, onions, tomato and two poached #pastureraised eggs with balsamic vinegar! #paleo #paleorecipes #paleodiet #paleobreakfast #grainfree #dairyfree #whole30friendly #whole30 #whole30approved #whole30recipes #cagefreeeggs #pastureraisedeggs #eattherainbow #eatrealfood #health #wellness #nutrition

"It was October 15th, 2008 and we were just about to open Ferndale Market for the very first time. Somehow, just before opening, we realized that our credit card processor wasn’t working. I called our local phone service technician (yes, our early credit card terminal ran on a dial up phone line), and he came right out. Soon he was laying underneath our cash register and had the problem fixed. He then grabbed a Spring Grove Soda from the cooler, and became our very first paying customer." ••• Read John’s full “From Your Farmer” update here 👉 https://ferndalemarketonline.com/home/farmer-september-2018/ ••• And sign up for our newsletter to get all updates delivered to your inbox!

I started working on a book this week.. the evolution of how we went from 30 to over 3000 layers and everything I learned. I get questions all the time about chickens and I love sharing what I know. (I even surprise myself sometimes with how much chicken knowledge I have now.) this page will get a lot of the old farm pics put back up, so bear with me when I finally do a massive upload. If you’ve followed along for a while and have a chicken question, leave a comment and I’ll write about it. I made a TON of mistakes and I hope to pass those along with this project to help other farmers. . . This was one days worth of eggs..

Long before the popularity of #Paleo and #Keto diets, we were producing antibiotic free, 100% grass-fed beef and lamb, pasture-raised pork and free-range eggs. Needless to say, we're thrilled to see an increasing number of consumers looking for healthy proteins. When you buy from TK Ranch you can rest assured that all of our products are Paleo and Keto friendly. What's more, our sausages, smokies, patties, jerky and meatballs are all made without sugar, gluten, grains, starches, nitrites (including celery), MSG and soy.
