Thank you for participating in our 2019 "Heritage Turkey" Program.
I'm so glad you were able to get a turkey before we sold out!
I trust you will have a "tasteful" experience this holiday season!
Now that you’ve ordered it, I'd like to ask...
Do you know how to cook our heritage bird?
I've got a great recipe guide here that will show you how!
It's a little bit different because these birds are raised “free-range” and were actually allowed to exercise and roam freely around the farm. They are not the same as the store-bought bird and as with most pastured meat, it needs a little bit of prep-work.
Therefore, to get a juicy roast bird, Putting it into a brine is key!
However, it is not always something most home cooks with a small refrigerator or a full refrigerator of holiday foods can easily do.
So, do you need help getting your brine on?.. If so try our
Optional On-Farm Brine Service
After slaughter on Tuesday the 26th, we can immediately marinate the turkey in a well-seasoned brine.
It will be stored here in the farm store until your ready to pick it up.
I’m flexible about your pick-up day...
It’s whatever you need to make this work for you!

Today, I’m sharing the strategies I use to fight my own battle with fear, anxiety, and feelings of uncertainty.
Whenever we take a fall in life or get knocked down it’s easy to start to feel overwhelmed.
I know you can relate because you are very busy taking care of so many things and a set back can feel much like a big loss.
It took some time for me to gather the proper “tools” in life and learn that falling is the best part...That is if you know how to fall with ‘style.’
I realize from experience the importance of these 3 strategies...
I know this 1st hand and have witnessed for myself that the work
we do here on this farm has a major impact on the health, emotion,
and overall well-being of the people that come into our
raw milk community and how they feel everyday.
Studies show that modern food is certainly a major factor in the rise of anxiety, depression, as well as many forms of illness.
Most folks don't notice that what we put into our bodies affects how we feel. This along with not having the other tools in your toolbox sure makes it harder to get back up after a fall.
I’m not talking about a hard crash from eating to much sugar, or the overstimulation from too much coffee, but I am talking about the lack of beneficial bacteria in our diet.
Because humans are almost 90% made from bacteria. It is bacteria that...
Having a strong immune system means that your body has “secured” its own ability to do battle and protect itself.
The modern food system has set an all-out war on our food that is consistently KILLING ALL bacteria from our food supply indiscriminately.
Only you can do something about this by taking an analysis of how you are being affected by the foods you eat or the lack of beneficial living food available to you that you do not eat.
We are being subjected to sterilized foods, harsh antibiotics, GMOs, preservatives, chemicals in our soils, water, air, food, kitchens, vehicles, work environments, and only God knows where else!
Our natural immunity has been compromised, and it may take patience to rebuild it. But I swear, as long as I’m around you’ve got a committed partner in the fight.
Take some good advice today in using food as your medicine and start incorporating real milk into your daily regimen.
Raw milk contains living, beneficial bacteria, enzymes, lactase forming bacteria, and many enzyme-based pathogens killing systems.
Any inflammatory condition can also contribute to anxiety and depression.
Lastly, beginning a committed inner balancing practice to your daily life will help you tap into the desire and discipline necessary to consistently eat well.
Keep in my that we are always here “farming in your service” and want nothing more than to allow Slak Market Farm to be your “soft place to fall”.
Leave me a comment here on the blog or reply by email about what you struggle with when it comes to making a connection with a farmer and drinking raw milk dairy, also where do you turn to for your soft place to fall in life?
A succulent meal is so much more than the actual food itself.
It brings people together and creates memories that go way beyond what you taste. The Healthy Butcher meat and this comfort food recipe will bring to the table one part of a "memory in the making" for you.
One of my favorite childhood memories that I can picture as if it was
yesterday involves a crisp and cool, fall evening and a pot of short ribs.
The time for a summer barbeque was over and so my Aunt Dorthy served up an amazing plate of ribs in a way that I had never experienced before.
It was not a barbeque as I had expected when hearing
"We are going over to Dort's- she is having ribs for dinner!"
I’ll always remember the moment my aunt pulled the big pot out of the oven and lifted the cover. The aroma was intoxicating. My family was so content as we sat together eating, letting the dish warm us from the cool, crisp fall evening air.
To this day, I make these braised short ribs for one reason:
To bring back that feeling I got years ago.
When you're thinking about comfort food, the ‘comfort’ does not
come solely from the dish itself, but it also comes from the memories
embedded that you have associated with it.
So as the days are getting shorter and the night's are cooler we begin the traditions of gathering to eat inside for our harvesting meals.
I’m finding myself once again eager to make short ribs. However, this time
with a new and improved recipe…one that I believe you will love.
It includes caramelized horseradish potato puree!

It’s mid-July and the annual Summer heat and humidity festival has begun!
I am not at all complaining as we were blessed to have a wonderful Spring in Kentucky.
When the kids are out of school and it’s officially summer do you visit family out of state, go on vacation or the beach, or take the family camping?
Whenever I've been asked this question the answer is almost always
Most folks don’t know that as a 365-day dairy farmer, taking a weeks vacation is almost impossible. Even a weekend or overnight stay is hard work and requires much planning.
However, I knew this before getting into dairying and to be honest, after careful consideration, it was one of the reasons I decided to buy my 1st cow.
I was truly ready to commit myself to a cow and literally "marry" the farm.
It’s hard to explain, I guess you just have to be in that same
place to understand what "season" I was in at that time in my life.
Seasons- Life really is all about seasons.
So now that we are in the thick of it, what are your plans for summertime fun?
If you have some time
I’d love to have you and your family
for an overnight farm stay!
Our nightly rates are down for family summer nights. This is a seasonal thing we do to make sure we are making time for our raw milk community friends.
It’s really fun and you will experience a real-life of milking cows, collecting eggs, and pasture rotation of chickens, sheep, and goats.
So seriously we wanna see you-
Go look at your calendar and figure when you can fit some time in there
for your family to come to hang out with us!
Heck, Who knows what might happen?
You guys may get to loving this farm life as much as we do!
Lol~ Believe me it happens!
Our schedule is quite packed. We are operating a 501c3 charity in the Dairy Dream for free overnight farm stays to kids with terminal illnesses.
So I hope you will find a day/night that will accommodate to your schedule.
In the meantime here is a video of two friends

It is still full steam ahead!
So Say Cheese!
Our very own Brooke Jennette will be attending as a guest expert
in explaining the ends and outs of cheese and its history.
I will be at the helm, leading the session from an actual
cow milking demonstration to making farmers cheese
from that fresh, off the cow, raw milk.
The annual $5.00 owner signup fee is included
in the admission price of the cheese class.
No monthly boarding is due unless you decide you can't live without our delicious creamy milk...Lol, "Believe me, it happens!"

Surrounded by not one who resemble her.
Her wool is dreadlocks that adorn her body and her face.
She is as dark as the other side of the moon. Often cast off alone to the side. I wonder if she notices that she is the only one in the room?
We just conversed about her over supper last night. I had assumed she was barren and what would be her future?
But in the cold of the night, as we spoke of her, unknown to us, she gave birth.
Putting all the dangerous circumstances aside, she got her baby girl up off that frigid ground!
It struck me deeply to my core... Never Underestimate Her!
Baa Baa Black Sheep!
gave birth last night to a beautiful bull calf.
We're so happy to have them both.
Blessed with an abundance of extraordinary milk.
Guernsey milk is clearly different milk than its “white” milk counterparts for many reasons.
The unique golden color of Guernsey milk comes from an unusually high content of orange beta-carotene.
The difference in the quality of Guernsey milk is remarkably higher than other cow’s milk. Through research, we are learning more each day about the value of the Golden Guernsey milk.
This golden milk has invaluable health properties. We have testimonies, from our customers, of health being restored by way of this revitalizing, life-giving, sacred golden milk
Golden Guernsey milk contains 12% more protein, 30% more cream, 33% more vitamin D, 25% more A and 15% more calcium than the average white milk. Ninety-six percent (96%) of Guernsey milk is A2 protein milk.
This is premium milk naturally high in Beta-Carotene, Omega 3, calcium, and A2 protein.
Best of all Guernsey cows do not need specialty formulated feed or additives to achieve these nutritional benefits.
It is simply pure and wholesome. All natural from this blessed cow!
Right now would be a great time to join our Raw Milk Herd Share.

All of my kids did their best to make my day so special. It is amazing to know that I can depend on them.

Laila even gifted me a hand fan! LoL
