WHATS IN THE SHARES THIS MONTH AND MORE!

  • It’s a mix of pick your own plus chickens and ground beef!
  • We WILL NOT have eggs this month

Hello All!

Hope you are having a great summer!  We have continued to be busy!  Sheep have arrived at my mom’s in Saline to mow down pasture.  Our first cutting hay has been cut, wrapped and stacked..almost time for second cutting!  All of our fence’s have been finished and the cows are a grazin’!  “Come on in, breakfast is great”!

We have a “split” calf season this year.  Some born in the spring and some in the fall.  The spring babies have all arrived now and are doing well.  The last two were born a few weeks ago.  Two yearling calves need to head north to our partner’s pasture….hoping to make that happen next week!

Our little bottle fed lamb baby is being weaned and eating grass and hay now.  Oh Yeah!

 

OLD PINE FARM MEAT:

 
 Soooo Yummy!  The Pioneer woman’s chicken, blueberries, and fresh corn Salad:
 INGREDIENTS
  • 4 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • Olive Oil, For Drizzling
  • 3 stalks Celery (inner Light Green Stalks), Finely Diced
  • 2 ears Fresh Corn
  • 1/4 whole Medium Red Onion, Finely Diced
  • 1-1/2 cup Blueberries
  • 3 Tablespoons Fresh Dill, Minced
  • 4 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
  • 4 Tablespoons Sour Cream
  • 1/4 cup Half-and-half
  • 1 whole Lemon
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar (more To Taste)
  • Salt And Pepper (additional) To Taste
  • 3/4 cups Crumbled Feta
With a very sharp knife, shave kernels off each corn cob. Combine with the onion and celery. Set aside.
Mix together mayonnaise, sour cream, feta, and half-and-half. Stir in sugar, squeeze in lemon juice, and add salt and pepper. Stir, then taste. Add more salt if necessary; do not undersalt!
Slice chicken on the bias to create flat, randomly shaped pieces. Throw into a bowl with celery, onion, and corn. Stir to combine. Pour half the dressing over the ingredients and toss gently. Add more as desired, but don’t overcoat the salad; should be light!
At the end, toss in the blueberries to lightly coat them in the dressing. Serve, then sprinkle individual helpings with feta.
