"The Cockerills employ a rotational grazing system, which means they move the cattle every day to fresh pasture. The system can be labor-intensive, but since the grass is not overgrazed, the root system is preserved, and the grass grows back more quickly."

The pasture rotation season has begun! Happy Spring to the cows!
The early spring grass is high in protein, which requires some special dietary considerations: extra mineral and hay. While it may be more info than you wanted, the farmers monitor their “cow pies” for signs of unhealthy protein levels. Stop by the farm store and the herd might be in the right spot to wave hello.

We recently started trying some dishes out with our new lamb, while they have all been good so far this one was a definite winner, it was so good our kids actually asked for seconds! Here is what we made:
- in a skillet, add a 3 tablespoons of butter, an onion, and 1 lb Fort Bacon Farm ground lamb
- after the lamb is cooked through, add two cups of Chicken broth, a peeled and diced sweet potato (or two if you really like your vitamin A), and spices (2tsp curry powder, 1tsp turmeric, pinch of salt and pepper) let simmer for 10-20 minutes.
-this is where you can choose your own adventure, we would add a mixture of milk and flour to make it more creamy, but if you want it to be more calorie friendly you can just stop here. You can then serve over cooked lentils, rice or noodles (we chose creamy over top of rice).
Let us know if you try it! Would also love to here about your recipes.

Sabbath . . . “Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart; Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art; Thou my best thought, by day or by night; Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light. Be Thou my wisdom, and Thou my true Word; I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord; Thou my great Father and I, Thy true son; Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one. Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise; Thou mine inheritance, now and always; Thou and Thou only, first in my heart; O King of glory, my treasure Thou art. O King of glory, my victory won; Rule and reign in me ’til Thy will be done; Heart of my own heart, whatever befall; Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.” . . . “I can see, and that is why I can be happy, in what you call the dark, but which to me is golden. I can see a God-made world, not a man-made world." - Helen Keller . ...praying your Sabbath was blessed with the Light of His presence, and that your vision for your life, reaches beyond the golden sky into what is hopeful, true, and good. As this first month of 2020 draws to a close, and perhaps you are beginning to plan a happy occasion, I hope you are able to set your sights on a foundation for your celebration that is something holy & pure; that your day may be a tangible evidence of an abiding love, and abundant life, be it your wedding, a birth, a parting, or a simple gathering. Every day is a possibility for joy. Please message if @abideoccasions may be of service in offering any encouragement or planning assistance. With gratitude for the beautiful every day. - Lauren Florals: DenbydesignCo. Photography: Rebekah J.
