Sourdough Boule
New to sourdough? Here's a really basic recipe written for beginners to help you get a feel for the timing and texture of basic sourdough. A "Boule" is a ball of dough, sturdy enough to make a free-form loaf. You may also use a loaf pan if you desire a traditional loaf shape. With no added fats, this bread will be chewy and have a crusty exterior. It may not be great as a sandwich bread for that reason, but makes delicious dinnertime bread served warm.

Broth Bread
Here is my go-to bread recipe. It is VERY versatile, but always creates a moist, fluffy, and relatively robust (for sandwiches) bread. I use it for dinner rolls, regular loaves, and cinnamon bread. So delicious! What’s with the broth? Well, I prefer making bread with broth instead of water or milk. It adds nutrients, color, and flavor, but unlike milk, does not affect the density nor increase crumbliness. There’s nothing special about this recipe that makes it work with broth–I just found a recipe I liked and adapted it! Try using broth with your favorite bread recipe!

Buttermilk Crackling Corn Bread
This cornbread is simply amazing. Use real buttermilk if you can to get the rich, buttery flavor, but regular milk will work in a pinch. The cornbread is cooked in cast iron and produces a rich, crispy underside and creamy, moist interior. Perfect with soups!

Rendered Lard
Lard is a bit of a mystery to most people, but don’t let it intimidate you. If you have ever cooked bacon, you can render your own lard! We offer pre-ground pork fat, which makes it even easier than ever to render lard at home. It’s seriously as easy as melting butter!

Buttermilk Biscuits
The secret to fluffy, flavorful, soft biscuits is using real lard and real buttermilk! These can be frozen raw and baked later. If frozen, add 3-5 minutes of baking time.

Roast Pasture-Raised Turkey & Gravy
Thank you for choosing to support local, sustainable farming by purchasing a pasture-raised turkey from us this year. Your turkey is special because he was raised on pasture with plenty of fresh grass and bugs to nibble, using no genetically-modified feeds and no soy. He was never medicated or administered arsenic-containing products or hormones. He was processed carefully by hand without bleach or irradiation and he contains no flavor additives, preservatives, or other chemicals. We hope you enjoy celebrating the great harvest that sustainable farming can yield!

Whatever you call it... we're already big fans!
