Beef & Pork Sales in The Farmers Market Shop

As some of you know, we have been working towards providing meat through a herdshare option. In May of 2021 the Nebraska legilature passed a law that allows meat to be obtained through a herdshare agreement. We are thankful for this option as it lets us use a closer meat locker that vacuum seals and has great processing results. It means less stress on both the animals and for us with shorter transport times. We began selling herdshares earlier this month. Moving forward we will not be selling meat in our Farmers Market Shop. However, we will have meat selections availble...

Winter Farm Update 2021

Winter Farm Update 2021

As I type this the current temp is zero degrees... but, I thought I would share with you what winter on the farm means for us beyond shoveling snow, keeping water defrosted and making sure the animals have enough food and dry bedding to stay warm.Winter is actually our time for planning, improvements, and to (hopefully) catch our breath before the excitement and busyness of spring jump starts again. But, unlike crop farmers we don’t get to tuck all the equipment away in the barn and sit tight until the thaw. Animals still need to be cared for, milk jugs...

How To: Brine a Turkey

How To: Brine a Turkey

Happy Thanksgiving week Little Red Farm Friends! It is always so fun to see you at our annual Chicken & Turkey pick up during Friends & Family Night!  We started the weekend out with 90 chickens and 34 Turkeys and ended it with our 2 turkeys and 12 chickens for our family. Fresh, just processed poultry needs to rest for a minimum amount of time due to the natural changes that take place after death. Immediately after butchering rigor mortis sets in and as the meat chills it will stiffen. If you freeze or cook the bird then, it will...
