    At the farm, Fall is our favorite time of year.

Come by and pick something up to fill your belly and warm you house.

    TRY THIS | Copicut Chicken Broth Inspired by Sally Fallon’s Nourishing Traditions

    We have been enjoying cooking and eating stock lately. Here’s our favorite recipe inspired by Nourishing Traditions.

    Juice of 1 lemon
    1 Copicut soup stock pack (1 lb of feet and necks)
    1 bunch of parsley
    1 large onion
    1-3 cloves of garlic
    2-3 carrots
    3-4 sticks of celery
    Pinch of coarsely ground pepper.

    You can certainly alter the seasonings to your taste, more garlic or less celery, but after simmering for 3-4 hours this will be a wonderful addition to many dishes or can stand on its own as a fantastic base for a soup.
