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:

http://clarklandfarm.com/about_our_farm.html

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.

Chicken eggs

We love these eggs from Hensing Farm, not just the variety of colors, but also great flavor. The yolks are dark yellow or orange, as all farm-fresh eggs should be.

Bacon

Bacon was great, but had two issues with it: 1. neither description nor ingredient statement stated that this bacon was smoked (it would be nice to know what type of smoke/process was used); 2. the bacon mostly consisted of fat

Chicken Eggs

I like these eggs, especially the price. When I make hard-boiled, though, there are more burst eggs than I would expect. So I think they could be handled more gently in being transported to us. Perhaps it was just the one carton; I didn't hard-boil the other eggs I've bought from Savory. However, I haven't had eggs from other farmers burst like that.

Nonetheless, the eggs were all good. I just used the burst hard-boiled ones first.

Gourmet Spicy Italian Sausage

I don't know if "quality" is negative but the taste certainly was unpleasant to me.

This had unusual spicing; it didn't taste like "Italian" seasoning to me. I used it in a red sauce. While I ate the sauce, I had to force myself to do so. Will not be ordering again.

Chorizo Sausage

This chorizo is outstanding! It is exactly what I look for in a chorizo sausage--a bit spicy with the full flavor of paprika coming through and a good hint of each of the other spices. Some in my household find it a little salty so sometimes we mix with plain ground pork to even out the flavor and saltiness. Perfect with eggs or as part of huevos rancheros. Great in soups too!
