Judy's Dutch Barn Farm Blog

Book recommendations

When we're not weeding or feeding we spend our free time reading about beginner farmers, farming, and food and history.

Written by the chef of Blue Hill at Sone Barns, The Third Plate looks at what we're eating and what it all means.  Dan Barber comments on food by looking at the farming that brings it to his kitchen.

This is a series of essays on farming philosophy and sustainability.  This collection of works is base on Mr Kirschenmann's experiences on his North Dakata farm.

Farms with a Future is a how-to guide for the beginner small farmer.  Rebecca Thistlethwaite has put together important perspectives from farm owners and managers accross the country to bring home lessons all focused on sustainability.

Recipes

Here are some of my favorite recipes.  Needless to say, they're all better with fresh, local ingredients.

If you're a fan of lamb then you can find a lot more recipes on the fans of lamb web site.

Eat Local Lamb

Posted by Marc Kratzschmar on Wednesday, September 18, 2013 Under: Lamb

We are committed to eating locally and this year we are making that a financial commitment.
 
2013 lamb sales are in full swing. We are taking orders for whole, half, and select cuts of lamb. The 2013 lamb crop will be ready by mid-October, although we have already delivered some. This year we have been thinking about eating locally.  As our web site points out, our lamb is at least 10,000 miles more local than meat from Australia or New Zealand. We want to reward folks who are committed to eating local lamb by offering a discount. 
 

 
For all orders before October 15th, residents of Montgomery, Fulton, Herkimer, Otsego, Saratoga, Schenectady, and Schoharie Counties will get $50 off the price of a whole lamb. We appreciate local support and want to support folks making the effort to search out local food. You can come and visit the farm and see the lambs which are grass fed (pasture raised) with no supplemental hormones or growth promoters.  We are part of the economy of upstate New York so keep your money local - just like your food.
 
Please give us a call or send a note today.
