Why are small, local farms losing their corner of the dairy market? Not only is milk consumption declining across the country but there are an abundance of alternative milk products on the shelf, most of which are produced and ultra-pasteurized before being distributed to your grocery stores.
These alternatives are not produced locally. For example, Walmart's new milk plant in Fort Wayne, Indiana will bottle more than 100 million gallons of milk annually for 600 Walmart stores.
These new, larger processing plants and milk substitutes are expected to put continued pressure on existing, small and local producers of real farm fresh milk.
In a generation where the value of buying local and fresh is so important, Kreider Farms wants to remind you that the milk we produce, bottle and distribute all comes right from our own farm here in Lancaster County. #buylocal#buyfresh#buykreider
You don't have to eat eggs and wonder if toxins from plastic exposed to sunlight and varying weather conditions have diffused into your eggs. @poultry_made we want you to rest assured that eggs purchased from us will be organic and will remain organic!
Have you been wondering how to cook our beef chuck on the bone? With the cooler autumn weather it's a terrific time to give it a whirl and make @fionahammondfood's beef ragu. Fi recommends pot roasting the piece of beef, which will create a meltingly tender ragu with a delicious sweetness. It will comfortably feed 8-10 people or, alternatively, portion the ragu into containers to freeze for several easy mid week dinners. Click on the link in our bio for the recipe.
These pretty babies are just 20 weeks old and we’ve been starting to get some little eggs from them for a week now 🥚
Usually chooks will start laying from around 6months old. Our certified organic girls generally start at least a whole month earlier! When chickens first start laying, their eggs are quite small (but can often have two yolks). As the chicken’s body gets used to the egg laying process, the eggs will get bigger in size. After their first moult, the chooks enter the next “stage” of egg laying and the size of the eggs will increase again 🐥💛
Throughout the year, you might find that the availability of our “large”, “medium” or “small” eggs vary and this is why ☝🏽
