If you bought a Graise Farm chicken this fall, or whole chicken from another local farmer, and still haven’t cooked it up, here’s an idea. Roast the chicken whole. Use the herb-roasted chicken recipe on our website or another method. When I’m short on time, I rub some fat (butter, olive oil or lard) on it and shake pepper and salt outside and in. Then I put some herbs inside the cavity and a little water in the roasting pan. Roast at 350deg for 75 minutes. After you’ve enjoyed the meal from the whole chicken, finish deboning it to use the rest of the chicken meat in a soup. Throw the bones and some vegetables (carrots, celery, onion, garlic, etc) in a pot covered with water to make a homemade broth for your soup. Today I made @isabeleats white bean chicken chili verde soup following the tips mentioned above. The soup calls for homemade tomatillo salsa verde that I made with tomatillos picked this past summer as part of our CSA share from Spring Wind Farm in Northfield. Tomatillos freeze easily and this salsa is simple to make too and so exciting to have fresh in the middle of MN winter. Sunday soup dinner was a cinch and delicious! And now we have healthy leftovers for lunch or dinner this week. . . . . #soupsunday #sundaysoup #isabeleats #isabeleatsfood #graisefarmfood #graisefarmchicken #chickenchili #whitebeanchickenchiliverdesoup #whitebeanchickenchili #soup #homemadesoup #cookingwithchicken #pasturedchicken #chiliverde #salsaverde #tomatillos #tomatillosalsa #springwindfarm #cannonvalleygrownfood #cannonvalleygrown #northfieldmn #faribaultmn #mnfood #wintersoup #midwestfood #faribaultfoodie #notafoodphotographer

We’re taking the day off to sit and look at the snow. Only daily chores will be done today. No major farm projects. How about you? How did you spend your Sunday?

Local food is the most flavorful. That’s one of the many reasons people buy local. Why do you? If you’re longing for locally raised eggs, we’ll have chicken and duck eggs at the Faribault Winter Farmers Market today and every Saturday through Dec. 22 1-4pm at the @paradisecenterforthearts. For more information about the Faribault Winter Farmers’ Market visit @faribaultfarmersmarket or our Facebook page link in bio. 📷 by @tinyfarmer_mn. . . . . #faribaultwinterfarmersmarket #faribaultfarmersmarket #localfood #localfoods #duckeggs #duckeggsdaily #chickeneggs #locallyraisedeggs #locallyraised #graisefarm #graisefarmeggs #graisefarmfood #farmersmarketfood #farmersmarketjunkie #farmersmarketfoodventure #southernmn #faribaultmn #faribault #faribaultwinterfestival #mneats #huevos #huevosdepato #huevosdegallinasfelices #comidalocal #comidalocalorganica #latinosenminnesota #huevosderancho #granjera
When you cook a ham, or other bone-in pork cuts for that matter, don’t throw the bones! Save them and make pork broth. With pork broth made from our holiday ham, this egg drop soup was such a cinch to make a sooo delicious! Recipe from Beyond Bacon paleo cookbook and inspired by our friend @corikellyhome who made a similar soup recently and made me realize that I had never made an egg drop soup. Pork broth made from Graise Farm ham and soup made with Graise duck eggs, but you could use chicken, quail or even goose eggs! The recipe called for 4 eggs. I used 3 duck eggs. Two duck eggs would have been enough, but who doesn’t want the extra protein? . . . . #eggdropsoup #eggdropsoup 🍜 #porkbroth #homemadeporkbroth #homemadesoup #eggsoup #graisefarmfood #graisefarmpork #graisefarm #graisefarmduckeggs #duckeggs #beyondbacon #beyondbaconrecipe #paleo #paleorecipe #paleosoup #faribaultmn #soupfordinner #leftoversforthewin #nomnomnom #pasturedpork #savethebones #lessfoodwaste #nofoodwaste #homesteadinglife #fastfarmfood #homemadeisbest #simplemeals
We’re on the cusp of the last days of fall to move our animals to their winter shelters before the ground is covered with snow and too frozen for installing fence posts. Rose and Blanche have enjoyed all summer out on pasture and will now move in with Stan, the boar, to a pole shed with deep straw bedding for warmth, outdoor space to root in the woods, and they’ll be closer to a frost free water source. This move also means it’s their turn to be bred to have piglets in the spring time. They’ll be first time mamas. . . . . #pasturedpigs #futurepigmama #futurepigmamas #gilts #herefordpigs #herefordpigsofinstagram #pigpaddock #graisefarm #graisefarmpigs #graisefarmanimals #mnfarm #mnfarmlife #farmlife #sustainablefarming #beginningfarmers #faribault #faribaultfarmer
No turkey for us today and we’re ok with that. We are grateful to have raised the chicken and pig that provided our roasted chicken and ham for this year’s Thanksgiving meal. All main ingredients at the table were sourced locally. Thanks Mom for the amazing spread! Thanks to the farmers that raise and grow food for our community. Thanks to our friends, family and customers that support local. . . . . #thanksgiving #thanksgiving2018 #graisefarmfood #graisefarm #sourcedlocally #sourcedlocallyandethically ❤️ #graisefarmchicken #graisefarmpork

“Farmers have two seasons; winter and preparing for winter.” (Unknown) Winter is quickly arriving here in Minnesota with daily temperatures now below freezing. This is a reminder to us that we’re not quite ready for winter. During the summer and fall months we rotate our pigs on pastures on a weekly basis. When Winter arrives we set up pig paddocks closer to the farm where each group has access to a deep bedded shelter and a close source of water. If you have time and want to volunteer a weekend day on our farm, let us know. There’s still lots of preparing to do for winter. . . . . #preparingforwinter #mnfarming #mnfarmlife #farmlife #farmquotes #pasturedpigs #winterishere #beginningfarmers #theworkisneverdone #pasturedanimals #cannonvalley #cannonvalleygrownfarmer #cannonvalleygrown #graisefarm #graisefarmpigs #pigsofinstagram #cutefarmanimals #volunteerswelcome #faribaultmn #minnesota #sustainablefood #humanelyraisedanimals

We’re hopeful that this sister/brother duo will make a great team and have a great impact on helping control predators on our farm. Predators that we’ve detected in our first years of farming include fox, coyotes, weasels, possum, raccoon, eagles, hawks, woodchucks. These two have their work cut out for them. We’re all in training together these days. Ida, Just 3 month’s old, is learning the ropes of the farm following us around and playing with big brother Derby, on the right. Derby, now 7 months on our farm, learned some from our older lab dog Kirby that passed in August. At 10 months, he’s still a pup and he’s at a stage of testing the waters with us, but in a playful way. He alerts to sounds, even those that we cannot hear, and has a vicious bark when he detects danger. When not on duty, he likes belly rubs and duck eggs. . . . . #ourfarmdogs #livestockguardiandogs #ourstory #graisefarmanimals #predatorcontrol #dogsintraining #anatolianshepherdmix #greatpyraneesmix #anatoliangreatpyrenees #greatpyraneesanatolianshepherdmix #beginningfarmers #sustainablefarmers #faribaultfarm #faribaultfarmer #ricecounty #minnesota #minnesotafarming #sisterbrotherduo #workingdogs #ourfarmstory #dogsintraining #puppies
Meet Ida, the newest addition to our family. Ida is an Anatolian/Great Pyrenees mix. She will be a livestock guardian dog like her big brother Derby protecting the ducks, chickens, piglets and goats from coyotes, fox and all the other predators that are prevalent in our area. It takes a good year to two before they take on their full role of guarding. Already she has a lot of spunk and is getting familiar with the farm animals and her big brother.

Clean out your fridge today and make an egg frittata. Sauté some vegetables, add leftover meat or mushrooms and a little grated cheese(optional) to egg mixture. Fry in pan until eggs set. Then place pan in oven to finish. This is one of my go to meals anytime of the week and it makes great leftovers for breakfast or lunch the next day. . . . . #simplemeal #gotomeal #frittata #eggideas #duckeggs #duckeggfrittata #graisefarmfood #breakfastanytime #farmbreakfast #locallysourcedingredients #makesgreatleftovers #homecookedmeal #homecooking #homesteadinglife #cleanoutthatfridge #eggstravaganza #eggstraordinary #chickeneggs #fresheggsarethebest
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
