Are Ewe having friends over for Thanksgiving? Or just a cozy repast for Ewe and a companion? Either way, say goodbye to the bird and choose @hoodleycreek Frenched racks and shanks. We remove the chine bone so you can cut elegant rib chops in a flash. Buy a few shanks so you can scale the amount you need to cook, without loads of dry leftovers.

Come see us tomorrow @marketsquarefarmersmarket, booth #111 and have a delicious, happy and safe Thanksgiving!

Best hay in years @hoodleycreek. No chemicals, no herbicides, no insecticides. Regenerative orchard grass with some Timothy and a scattering of native chicory (anthelmintic which helps with parasite resistance in sheep).

Looking towards Baileyton, TN, a town started by the Bailey brothers from Londonderry in the late 1700’s (Will’s 6th great-grand father and 6th great-uncle).

This is on the north-west end of the farm looking at the small mountain range including Broken Back, Fodder Stack, Chimney Top, and Stone Lump mountains. There’s a song in there somewhere.


Come see us @marketsquarefarmersmarket tomorrow. WE ARE RESTOCKED WITH LAMB CUTS!!! If you want us to put a hold on something, please DM us here or message us on FaceBook before 7PM (Eastern).

Beautiful day tomorrow…can’t wait to see all of you at the market!!!

Forgot to posts last night’s dinner which was a part of my #PestoWeekend‼️

Baharat Lamb & Smoky Walnut Pesto Pizza!

Using a combo of garlic& herb sun-dried tomato paste and fresh Roma tomatoes, made a nice thick hand mashed sauce for the base. Then added fresh premium Buffalo Mozzarella to that! I mean already a winning combo. Could have added some Basil and stopped there for an amazing Margherita pizza, but that’s not what happened at all.

After the Buffalo Mozzarella, I followed up with clumps of my Smoky Walnut Pesto chèvre blend using @ocoeecreamery Sea Salt Chèvre.

After that came the ground Hoodley Creek] lamb with some of my Baharat seasoning for some beautiful depth and flavor. Followed that up with Hot Banana Peppers, Red Onions, & Ground Cherries!

A finishing sprinkle of Fennel, cracked Pink Peppercorns, & Pecorino Romano! All of this using farm fresh veggies as much as possible!

We have private events for a couple of weeks, then we’ll be back at it April 23 at Central Filling Station. In the mean time, enjoy this extremely cute picture from our trip this week to Hoodley Creek Farm. The spring babies and mama 🥰
Pasture is not enough. Did you know that the lambs need more than pasture, fresh water, finishing feed and mineral ? They also need roughage - like a roll of hay. It’s lamb candy for the gut - helps em digest all that green grass 🙂Thanks to KK and Will Hoodley of Hoodley Creek farm for there tutelage on lamb raising. KK and Will are experts in sheep and lamb and have been a friend to Land Basket Farm and we thank them for their mentorship.
Check out our newest blog post, which includes a recipe and video on how to grill a prized protein: rack of lamb! Pick up a rack for yourself from Hoodley Creek - available at Boone Street Market or via the Online Jonesborough Farmers Market Lovers of lamb place this cut on a pedestal - it’s beautiful, juicy, and extremely fun to cook in a variety of ways. Those less familiar with it may think of it as “fancy” or “stuffy” and shy away from purchasing it with a fear of cooking it incorrectly. Good news about rack of lamb: even if you don’t get it perfect, it’s still delicious! Let’s take the stuffiness out of this gorgeous protein and learn how to grill it in such a way that there’s no way you’ll end up with anything less than a lick-the-bone delicious meal.

Hoodley Creek is a seventh generation Tennessee Century Farm that started in 1850. As farm owner KK Proffitt recollects, "Our farm went through the Great Depression, and I can remember stories from my grandparents about how they survived that and the rationing in WWII." Proffitt has had a great career, with a post production studio on Music Row in Nashville. "I truly enjoyed working with high-end clients for broadcast and DVD. I opened the first surround sound studio in Nashville in 1997, and we did very well. It was a lot of fun beta testing software for clients like Avid, Digidesign, and Dolby. "The reason why I wound up being a sheep farmer after having been an audio video engineer, producer, and musician for forty years is that I inherited the farm I had wanted to run since I was a little girl. I used to spend summers with my grandparents growing up (as well as all holidays), and it was the best experience a child could have. I always wanted sheep on the farm but the rest of my family didn’t agree, so I studied sheep for several decades." KK isn't the only family member to make sacrifices for the farm. "My son, Will, was working on a PhD in molecular biophysics at Johns Hopkins and offered to take a semester off to help me get some things straightened out on the farm. He has not gone back but has taken the tractor nearly completely apart at least three times! "We have about 450 sheep and we had 120 lambs this winter. Lambing is a magical experience than nothing can equal. Even though you are completely exhausted, the feeling of joy seeing the ewes and lambs together more than makes up for the sacrifice." Hoodley Creek is doing their part to keep folks safe as they provide local food to their community. “We definitely work with customers via Facebook to set up appointments at our on-site center, and we are glad to deliver to their car. We can take their payment via Square without ever touching anything except the bag of their items with our gloved and Purell-coated hands. We also deliver to those who shelter in place in their home.” Find more family farms and local products at PickTnProducts.org and on the PickTN mobile app! #DoYourPartWithPickTN #PeopleOfPickTN
