Locust Hill Farm

Locust Hill Farm Locust Hill Farm is a WORKING farm outside of Middleburg VA. We raise and sell grass fed and grain finished beef. We also produce grain and hay.

We sell sweet corn when in season. Throughout the year we have seedstock heifers and bulls available as well as Hay and Straw. We work hard to provide a quality product.

Mike and I took a little field trip yesterday morning to LONE OAK Coffee Company to sample their products...and we liked them so much we brought some back to the store for you guys!

We currently have some of their house blend in both ground and whole bean and their mexico, brazil and townsman in whole bean.

Come grab a bag to try! And if you're interested in one of the varieties we have in whole bean but need it ground let us know, we can add a bag to our next order for you!

Cow Post:

We will be offering several cow calf pairs (both fall and spring) and an open heifer in the Virginia Hereford Association Mid-Atlantic Fall Bonanza Sale on November 13th at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds in Harrisonburg, VA.

These females, and the families that they are out of, have done very well for us at Locust Hill, but as we work through transition of the cow herd from one generation to another, we have had to make tough decisions on which ones to sell and which ones to keep.

We know these females will make productive cows for their new owners - and are excited about who they have been bred to or have young calves by. You can view the catalog at https://issuu.com/buyhereford/docs/midatlanticfall21

Let us know if you have any questions about any of these, or about the sale in general!

Moving forward as we work through this transition, this page will focus on the farm store rather than cattle. If you are interested in our cattle operation and animals we may have for sale, please follow us at Black Locust Livestock LLC!

Thank you to everyone for all of your support!

Cowhide bags, wallets, coin purses, wine holders and earrings!!!

Rainy, cool days are PREFECT for stews and soups.

No question, we love a good beef stew, but butternut squash soup is also a favorite in our house.

We like our butternut squash more savory than sweet, so I usually cut the butternut squash in half, coat with a little olive oil, and bake them in the oven until they are almost done. This makes them so much easier to peel!!

After I take them out of the oven, let them cool and peel them, I'll throw them in a large pot with about 2 cups of vegetable stock per butternut (we do the low sodium kind in our house) along with a couple tablespoons of sherry or white wine, some white wine vinegar, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and a little smoked paprika (all of this is to taste, but starting with a dash of salt and pepper and maybe a teaspoon of the rest is a good place to start). When that comes to a simmer, I use an immersion blender to blend to a smooth consistency and then add some goat cheese and blend again. After that it can simmer as long as you want (you may need to add a little more vegetable stock depending on the consistency and how thick you want it).

We will sometimes garnish with some bacon bits and shave parmesan cheese when we serve it.

As far as beef stew goes, I don't measure a thing, so I don't have a "recipe" to share, but I will share that if you make your roux and then put that in a crockpot with your stew meat (mine is usually still frozen because i always forget to grab it the night before from the freezer) that can simmer all day and then you can just toss some canned potatoes, carrots and whatever other veggies you want in for about 15-20 mins before serving!

P.S. We have butternut AND stew beef in the store!

Open until 5 today and 9-1 tomorrow.

Happy rainy Friday! It's hard to believe November is almost here.

We will have a few changes to our store hours in November, and we wanted to go ahead and share those now, so you can plan!

We will be CLOSED on Saturday, November 13 for a cattle sale and show that we, and our little farmers, are participating in. This is part of the transition of the farm from one generation to another (and encouraging our next generation).

We will also be CLOSED Wednesday, November 24- Saturday, November 27 to spend Thanksgiving with family. To make up for that, and so you have a chance to do all your Thanksgiving shopping, we will be OPEN EXTENDED HOURS Saturday, November 20 - 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. and will be open from 1 p.m. - 5 p.m. on Monday, November 22 and Tuesday, November 23.

We appreciate your continued support and your understanding and we look forward to seeing you in the store soon!

Lets talk warm, comforting foods for cooler fall evenings for just a minute...

Fall happens to be my (Rebecca) favorite time of year, I love the changing leaves, the cooler temps, and all the slow cooker/roasting pan/simmer all day soups and stews that go along with it.

I'm also a huge fan of pork loin roasts...I hardly ever buy pork chops, I would rather buy a pork loin roast and cut my own chops, it tends to be more economical and I get to choose the thickness of the chops!

On occasion however, I love a good pork loin roast, and we made one the other night that was amazing! We took one of the roasts from the store and covered it with dry rub seasoning and seared all sides in a hot skillet for just a few minutes. Then I put it in a roasting pan with the fat side up (I have a stoneware one that it fit perfectly in) with a little bit of vegetable stock (I didn't measure, but it was enough to have about an inch of liquid in the bottom) and covered it with a honey garlic glaze (1/4 cup honey, 1/4 cup butter, about 2 Tbsp minced garlic, 2 Tbsp soy sauce (we use low sodium) and 1 Tbsp or so of rice wine vinegar).

In the oven, covered, at 350 for about 20 minutes per pound (ours was just over 2 lbs and I baked it 45 minutes, then broiled it for a few minutes to get a nice crust on top).

Then let it sit for at least 10 minutes. I am famous for running late or being impatient and not letting meat rest long enough but trust me, you want it to rest 10-15 minutes, it makes all the difference in having a moist pork roast vs. a dry one.

Once I pulled the roast out, I dumped the broth in a pan and brought it to a simmer with a Tbsp of corn starch and cold water to make a sauce, and tada! Even our youngest had seconds.

Swing by and see us to get the pork loin, dry rub and honey here at the store today from 1-5 or
