Hot and sour soup made with Graise Farm duck eggs. “Perfect for a windy fall weekend,” said the post from our friend, farm champion (aka egg washer, packer, animal caretaker) and loyal customer @corikellyhome. Duck eggs can be used in place of chicken eggs in just about any recipe to add more flavor and nutrients to a meal, dessert or snack. . . . . #hotandsoursoup #duckeggs #graisefarmduckeggs #duckeggsarethebest #duckeggsaregoodforyou #chickenvsduckeggs #chickeneggsvsduckeggs #realfood #homemadesoup #mnfall #fallfood #comfortfood #soup #graisefarmfood #serveithot #localingredients #foodprint #whatchacookinggoodlooking #makeitathome #mncooking #mnhomecook #cannonvalleygrownfood #nutritiousanddelicious #eggsellent #eggsoup #eggrecipes #eggideas
Sorry if you’ve missed us at the @faribaultfarmersmarket these past few weeks. You can find our chicken and duck eggs locally at @rufacresmarket in Faribault and @justfoodcoop in Northfield (also at @lowryhillmeats in Minneapolis). Our chicken egg production declined greatly this summer due to predator attacks on our free ranging chickens. We will raise new chicks and ducklings over the winter and be back with more next year. . . . . #graisefarmeggs #graisefarm #localeggs #localeggsarebest #freshfromthefarm #freshfarmeggs #fresheggs #faribaultfarmersmarket #faribaultwinterfarmersmarket #faribaultfarm #risksoffarming #risksoffreerangelife #freerangeeggs #chickeneggs #heneggs #duckeggs #eggsdaily #thatdarnfox

Apple treats are a fall favorite for all of us on the farm. We have fresh apples to snack on during the day. Moms make us apple pie and apple crisp. We share apple seconds with our pigs, chickens and ducks. . . . . #applefed #pasturedpiggies #theygrowsofast #mnfarmers #faribaultfarm #herefordpigs #silvopasturedpork #farrowtofinish #weregrowing #graisefarmanimals #graisefarmpigs #apples #locallygrown #cannonvalleygrown #cannonvalleygrownfood #appleseason
Cannon Valley Grown is born! What began as an idea, 2 years ago, to create collaborative marketing and better share the stories of locally produced products from the Cannon Valley Region, came to fruition at our kick-off party last night. The founding members of this idea, myself included, spoke to a full house at @imminentbrewing in Northfield, a perfect host for this event as they produce many beers with locally sourced products. We shared stories and we shared our dreams about growing our local food shed and making @cannonvalleygrown products known locally and beyond! We heard from the owners of @loonliquors , the first “legal” distillery to open in Minnesota and a distillery that is certified organic and sourcing organic wheat and other ingredients from farmers in the Cannon Valley region. Together we share these values: - Sustainable Farming - Local sourcing and production - Humane animal treatment - Fair worker treatment - Respecting all people - Sharing our stories Together we are Cannon Valley Grown! If you’re interested in becoming involved as a member, sponsor or volunteer of Cannon Valley Grown, message me.

The local food and farm produced products in our region are absolutely amazing! This is not only because of the rich soil and abundant water supply, but also because of the people.

We are @cannonvalleygrown and we will be known! Join us this Wednesday at 6:30pm at @imminentbrewing to learn more at the Cannon Valley Grown Kick-Off Party. #Repost @cannonvalleygrown with @get_repost ・・・ Get ready to discover Cannon Valley Grown and the stories of the delicious food and drinks, exceptional products and the dedicated people who make them happen.

The beginning of a new era on our farm. Today the silos that my parents put up 40 years ago, and used for over 2 decades to store feed for dairy cows, were taken down. They sat in the middle of the farm and we had no use for them. Now we can utilize that space in a different way that fits our farming today and we can see the beautiful rolling pastures that lie behind them. . . . . #silos #silofalls #silofalling #goodbyesilo #graisefarm #mnfarm #modernfarming #faribaultmn #faribaultfarm #newbeginnings #familyfarm #beginningfarmers #cleaningupthefarm

Today is chicken pick-up day at Graise Farm! If you pre-ordered pasture-raised, organic-fed Cornish Cross chicken(s), stop out to the farm today to pick up yours today and get a tour of the farm. If you missed the pre-order, PM me for availability. We have a limited amount of extra chickens available. Our Freedom Ranger chickens will be ready in 2-3 weeks. There’s still time to pre-order those on line.

Our piglets and all other animals rode out the tornado storm last night like champs! Mama and piglets actually appeared to sleep right through it. Lucky little buggers. We were amazed that none of pastured chickens were blown away. As we sheltered in our basement during the storm, we kept peeking out the windows to see what was happening and it was scary high winds and green/gray skies. Many in our area have lost power, beautiful old trees and even barns, sheds, houses and other structures. We’ve cleaned up around our farm today so tomorrow we can help others. Piglets are 4 days old in this video. . . . . #faribault #afterthestorm #graisefarm #graisefarmpigs #graisefarmanimals #pasturedpigs #herefordhogs #piglets #pigletsofinstagram #helpafarmer
Mama and babies are doing well this morning. Yesterday this first time mama gave birth to 8 energetic piglets. Dorothy is our first Hereford pig mama to farrow on our farm and the first to use Andy’s newest hog hut. Piglet pics coming soon! . . . . #farrowtofinish #pigmama #pigmomma #herefordhogs #herefordhog #graisefarm #graisefarmpigs #graisefarmanimals #pighut #pasturedpigs #livinginharmonywithnature #livinginharmony #outdoorfarming #mnfarm #faribault #faribaultfarm #faribaultfarmersmarket #cannonvalleygrown #wearemodernfarmers #beginningfarmers #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom
These bulging, bright yellow yolks are duck egg yolks from our pasture-raised, organic-fed ducks. Packed with flavor, duck eggs contain a higher nutritional content than chicken eggs including 9 grams protein, 9.6g fat, 1 g carbohydrates, considerable amounts of vitamin A and B12, as well as minerals like selenium and iron. Perhaps the only downside is that they are higher in cholesterol than chicken eggs, so if you’re watching that, eat them in moderation. Duck eggs make a simple, quick, healthy meal any time of the day. A staple breakfast for us is a fried duck egg (fried in lard or 🥓 fat) sandwich. When cooking, note that duck egg whites are thinner than chicken eggs, so cook them on a low, slow heat to avoid overdone whites that turn rubbery.

Yesterday Andy shared our rotational pastured pig moving method with people at the Gathering of the Guilds, an annual permaculture event held at @organiccompoundmn in Faribault, MN. Our pigs have been rotational grazing cover crops at the Organic Compound this summer to help naturally mow and till their fields. Many people are in awe of how we’re able to keep pigs inside of a 2-wire electric fence. We can do this with training and careful placement and management of the fencing. Using this system creates a healthy environment for our pigs, for the soil and for us. Animals raised on pasture render a healthier and tastier meat. . . . . #pigsonpasture #organiccompound #faribault #rotationalgrazing #rotationalgrazingisamazing #pasturedpigs #beforeandafter #healthypigs #healthyhappypigs #mnfarm #mnfarmers #farmersworktogether #cannonvalleygrown #gatheringoftheguilds #faribaultfarm #graisefarmers #knowwhereyourmeatcomesfrom #pasturedpork #nottheotherwhitemeat #meetyourmeat #knowyourfarmer
Maple-custard with fresh Graise Farm eggs and our neighbor’s maple syrup; Korean-style BBQ pulled pork and chicken with Graise Farm pasture-raised meats; salads with veggies grown by local farmers and friends at Spring Wind Farm, @cloverbeefarm , River View Veggie and Twieoffs. Local sweet corn and apples to top off a late summer MN local wedding. Every dish at our wedding luncheon was mindfully and intentionally created with ingredients abundant on our farm and of the season. Catered by our friend Farmer-Chef Mary.

We tied the knot today! Thank you to our friends and family that celebrated with us and that helped with our on farm wedding. 📷 by @jasna.burza .
A little whisper in a quiet morning is all that’s needed to wake up these two sleeping beauties. Blanch and Rose are two of our future pig mamas. They are Herefords, a hog breed that originated in Iowa from crossing Duroc, Chester White and Poland China breeds. Their coloring, white face and red/orange body, resembles the Hereford beef cattle. They are great on pasture and they’re supposed to be excellent mothers. We’ll find out soon.. . . . . #herefordhogs #herefordhog #graisefarmpigs #pigmamas #futurepigmamas #mymorning #morningsonthefarm #goodmorninginsta #farmvideo #graisefarm #mnfarm #mnfarmlife #mnfarmliving #faribault
Farmer date night! Before we started farming three years ago, we used to have free time to go out. Now we spend time together on farm projects even on a Friday night. Tonight we set up a new paddock, fenced area, and moved our pigs at that are hanging out at @regeneration_farms , 2 miles down the road, where they’re rooting up a variety of cover crops (plants that help return nutrients to the soil). The pigs eat the plants down, root or till them up and naturally fertilize the soil. . . . . #farmerdatenight #farmerdate #beginningfarmers #pigpaddock #regenerationfarms #graisefarm #graisefarmers #fridaynightselfie #thisislove #wereinthistogether #farmprojects #theworkneverends #smallfarmlife #faribaultfarmers #faribaultfarm #mnfarms #cannonvalleygrown #cannoncity #aslongasweretogether ❤️
We savored our last pastured-pork steak from 2017 in this basil-cashew-lime pork and green bean bowl. Our own pasture-raised pork with herbs and green beans from our friends at Spring Wind Farm in Northfield. Pastured pigs move freely in a spacious paddock outside where they enjoy sunshine and fresh air daily which results in a flavorful, tender, pinkish-red colored pork. For more information on how to order our pasture-raised, organic-fed pork, see our web link in bio.
