Cold + rain = soup weather!!

I love a good bowl of soup on a chilly day...and while beef stew is a go to in our house (our stew beef makes it really easy to make in a short amount of time), we also enjoy butternut squash soup.

I don't like super sweet butternut squash dishes, so since the squash itself is already sweet, I usually add some vegetable stock, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, goat cheese, a small amount of white wine vinegar and salt and pepper to roasted butternut to make soup for us. Topped with a few bacon bits and some parmesan cheese, it's is a great stand alone meal, or complement to lots of things!

Bonus: we have butternut squash AND stew meat in the store along with plenty of roasts so you can be set for dinner all weekend and into next week!

Big News!!

Corn season is done, BUT

Pumpkin season is here and we have both some beautiful orange pumpkins in different sizes, as well as so really cool heritage pumpkins. (And a limited amount of cornstalks!)

We are also restocked on butternut and spaghetti squash (which are some of our favorites...if you want recipes, let me know!) AND we have restocked on PORK!

We have boneless loin chops, baby back ribs, short ribs, whole tenderloins (fish if you're from Shenandoah Valley like me), loose sausage, breakfast sausage links, sweet Italian sausage grillers and BACON!

Come grab some this week - I am out of the store this week, but our good friend Brenda will be there tomorrow (Wed) - Fri and Tamara will be there on Saturday!

🎃 gourds and Pumpkins (minis, mediums, large and heirloom)

I've been slacking on the recipes for unfamiliar cuts guys, and I'm sorry!! (I'm blaming it on the craziness of sweet corn season). I have one for you now though 🙂

I pulled out a sirloin tip roast the other night and put it in the fridge to defrost overnight. Once it was thawed, I got out my handy little sou vide and oversized pot (I am now convinced the sou vide was a worthwhile investment). I put the sirloin tip roast in a vacuum sealed bag with some garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt and pepper and sealed it up, then placed it in my large pot with water and the sou vide machine. I set the sou vide for 132° for 18 hours (yes, you read that right), and left it. The only thing you really have to do while it is cooking is make sure the water doesn't get below the minimum water line on the sou vide machine.

After 18 hrs, I pulled it out, patted it dry and put a mix of salt, pepper and garlic powder on top, then put it on the oven on high broil to get a crust.

We sliced it thin and had it with Brussel sprouts, corn, and salad that night, and it was good, but to be completely honest, I've been having it as roast beef sandwiches for lunch and I think that is where it really shines!

Anyone else have a good sirloin tip roast recipe? I'm always up for trying something new!

Unfortunately we will not be able to leave corn out in the evenings any more, the 🦝 have discovered that we will pick it for them, so corn will not be available after we leave the farm for the day.

We know that is frustrating for some that may want to stop later in the evening, and we are sorry!

Fun facts about our family for you rainy Wednesday evening 😂:

1. I always keep
✔️several packs of ground beef thawed
✔️canned potatoes and carrots

2. I have one kid who loves soup/stew and one kid who won't eat it

3. I refuse to be a line order cook

So on nights like tonight, when one kid wants soup and one kid doesn't, and I only have ground beef thawed as a protein...we have "meatball soup".

I.E. I made meatballs, and a soup from some leftover beef broth and those canned potatoes and carrots and one kid got meatballs and raw cauliflower (which I also keep on hand because everyone in my house eats it) and one kid get meatballs soup...and mom doesn't have to make 2 meals!

Anyone who comes in the store has probably heard me say how versatile ground beef is...this is a perfect example!!

We have the absolute BEST customers, and we are so appreciative of you all.

As we approach our one year anniversary of opening the store, we want to say THANK YOU...

Thank you for supporting us, thank you for sticking with us as we work through supply and demand, thank you for your patience with us and thank you for your loyalty.

To celebrate our anniversary and Labor Day, we'll be offering specials on sirloin steaks, sirloin tip steaks, sirloin tip roasts, sirloin strip steaks and london broils this week - buy one, get one 50% off.

We're also running a special on our ground beef (just ground beef, not ground chuck, ground round or beef patties), $1.50 off per 1 lb pack when you buy 2 or more.

And a sweet corn update for all who have been asking - our next set of corn has NOT been attached by the 🦝 yet (yay!) and should be ready soon - we are hoping by the weekend, but definitely by next week - we will keep you posted!

Thank you again, and we look forward to seeing you in the store!

One of the neighbors was walking on the farm this evening and discovered this buck. Still alive. They tied a rope to it's antlers and pulled it to safety. Then asked if one of our hunters got it during the season, they wanted on of the tenderloins. 🤣 Here is to good neighbors!!!! Locust Hill Farm
