Ground Beef

The meat itself was fine so I don't like rating it as "negative quality" but the amount of fat was unacceptable. The meat was swimming in fat in the pan.

After moving the meat to paper towels, I poured the fat that was left in the pan into a measuring cup. There was more than 1/4 cup of fat rendered from one pound of ground beef.

For comparison, I paid extra attention when I later cooked up a 2-lb package of ground beef from Miller's farm. There was no accumulated fat in the pan, just a slight slick to the bottom of the pan. Night and day difference.

Small Instant Pot Bundle Box

Now I've had the stew beef. Loosely followed the recipe that was provided. Again, I carefully trimmed the meat although there wasn't much to trim. Didn't flour the meat, just sauteed it in the Instant Pot, then added tomato paste and water I had used to steam carrots the other day (not even stock, just carrot water). Salt, pepper, thyme. It was excellent. Would skip the carrots in the recipe next time because the IP made them mushy. But will definitely make the beef this wasy again. In fact, I've already ordered more stew beef and more pork chops.

Small Instant Pot Bundle Box

I've only had the pork chops so far. I trimmed all the fat off because my current eating plan restricts fat. To my delight, even after trimming off the fat and bone, these cooked up juicy and delicious. Wish I could post this under the pork chop listing but since I bought it as part of the bundle, I can only post here. Hopefully I'll be able to edit and add to this as I eat the rest of the meat in the bundle.

Raw Milk

It's great that I have found access to raw milk from grassfed Jersey cows! Thanks to the buying club for being able to deliver it - it's inconvenient to look it at the farmer's markets that happen during the day when I am at work!

The unforgivable raids on raw milk farmers are totally ridiculous, waste healthy food and steal money out of a farmer's hands that people are asking for. As usual it has nothing to do with health since there are more problems with pasteurized milk that don't get reported because of the huge milk lobby. Raw milk is actually so much healthier. As a health coach I tell people that as long as you aren't intolerant or allergic to dairy, raw milk is a very wonderful, delicious and sustaining food.

Raw Milk

Our family loves this milk from Hensing's Farm. You can see a wonderful cream line in the bottles. Keep in mind that fat content is very high in this milk.

Introducing Clark's Farm in Howard County MD
Specializing in Grassfed Beef and chemical free produce!

Beef sticks back and the best beef jerky!

I had the pleasure of visiting this farm last week to see if they were compatible with the Grassfed on the Hill mission and standards.

I love history and great stories, so I was naturally captivated by Nora's description of the farm history. It was only recently that the mother-daughter team of Martha Clark and Nora Crist took over the entire farming and business operations to keep their family farm alive and honor their family's request to "never sell the land."

When Nora went off to college, as many young people do, she intended to pursue other endeavors, but was soon diagnosed with a debilitating chronic illness. She returned from the farm and, as she learned more and more about the benefits of grassfed beef, she changed her diet and farming practices and her health improved as a result. This cemented her in the direction for holistic farming practices and her deep commitment to producing nutrient dense food for others.

The spirited, 29-year old farmer is determined to make the farm work and continue to improve her health. I hope that we can give her a boost on her journey!

Here is more history of the farm over the many generations their family has managed that land:

While the petting farm is the farm's main source of income currently, they hope to balance that by increasing production of their angus, grassfed beef and providing that to local markets. They are excited to offer their beef to Grassfed on the Hill and they are a perfect fit for our group of conscientious, nutrition and socially/environmentally-minded, consumer base.

During my visit, I met part of their herd. The angus cows were in a separate field from the cattle because they are still calving and nursing their babies. I had my children along with me and, at one point, my son ran ahead and the entire herd of cows, babies and all, followed him along the fence line. It was adorable.

As we learned about the farm that day, the children visited the baby animals at the petting farm, they explored the colorful creations of the Enchanted Forest (that is an amazing story about this farm), and another great reason to visit this farm!

Nora and I are already brainstorming possibilities of having a farm picnic for the group. Until then, here is a photo tour of the farm. Be sure to check out all the great products they are offering and leave a note for the farmers if you order from them.

As the season progresses, they will have plenty of their amazing, chemical free produce available to us as well.

Please give Nora a wonderful welcome to being a Grassfed on the Hill producer.
