A customer asked a question about what organ meats we offer (check out a complete list with the status here). I take all customer questions seriously and do my absolute best to answer honestly and accurately. This particular question led me down a rabbit hole and to a fascinating and timely revelation.

It seems that we are trying to measure and track a lot of things these days. Whether the data is actually valuable or useful or accurate is another story. There is one tool that I use regularly in my kitchen, and it is data that is certainly useful and reliable. This is a shout out to my meat thermometer. Thank you for all you do to cook delicious meals for my family!

This year, we started getting the same question from a bunch of our awesome customers. It goes something like this, “I’m vegetarian. Can you make A2 cheese with vegetable rennet?” Of course, I relay all feedback to farmer Aaron. So, he started looking into it. We went down a rabbit hole of knowledge on this one. It turns out, there’s good reasons we use beef rennet.

Bear with me this week. I have a bunch of interesting turkey details to share with you. This year the turkeys will be on demand! That means you order one when you need one. No preorders this year. Fall turkeys will start going to the processor on September 29th and will continue to be sent through November. That means that you can start ordering whole turkeys soon! As of right now, there are some turkey cuts available. Here are the basics - Our turkeys are a “white” breed, live on green pasture, and are naturally raised and processed. I am always wanting to find out more about how my food was produced. This year, I’m diving deep to answer the question, “What’s in the feed?”

Farmer Aaron and his family needed help. Completing all the farm chores, running a business, holding down a household, and being active with their church and community was getting to be too much to handle with sporadic help here and there. The Miller’s needed some relief. They needed some freedom. They needed some more sleep. So, farmer Aaron put an ad in the Busy Beaver...

You’ve likely heard the sayings “turn lemons into lemonade” and “don’t cry over spilled milk”. But what do you do with too much milk or sour milk? There certainly should be a saying about that. If you accidentally over-purchase milk or your raw milk sours faster than you can drink it, please don’t dump that wonderful liquid down the drain. The ladies on the farm worked so hard to produce it. I have a solution for you - “Ricotta get going!” Turn your extra milk into ricotta cheese!

The other day, I read a great opinion piece about how the stress of the pandemic is different from any other stress we may encounter. I chatted with farmer Aaron about this. The next day, I got an uplifting fax from him with some fantastic remedies for overcoming bad days. When I asked Aaron how he tackles a bad day, he said “Well, I don’t know, because I don’t really have bad days. Within a bad day, you can have a good day.”

There is only one reason soy is in animal feed - it’s cheap!!! Feeding animals soy leads to a plethora of negative health consequences. For a small farmer, this is a tough place to be. Produce more expensive healthy food or more affordable less healthy food? You can’t do both. Let’s think about this in a different way. Soy-free food is more expensive right now but will likely save you lots of money in the long run. All of Miller’s Bio Farm’s products come from animals fed a soy-free diet (with the exception of the “regular eggs” offered from time to time).
