Over at the Farm!

We were up at the Sweet Tree Farm and looked in on the cows, pigs, and chickens!

The pasture is nice and lush with long grasses, and the red and white clover and diversity of  grasses that the Sweet Tree Farm animals eat, makes the difference in the flavors of the 100% grass fed beef.  

The terroir of Sweet Tree Farm affects the taste of the meat of the farm animals.  Like a fine wine, the quality of; the grasses, climate, soil, terrain, and knowing the right time to "harvest" the animals is the key to the fine quality of Sweet Tree Farm animals.  

Farmer Frank Johnson, has been cultivating his land for decades and utilizing sustainable farming methods to ensure healthy, humanely raised farm animals.

Grillmaster Tips And Tricks From The Great American BBQ Co.

It’s more than halfway through summer, time to brush up on your barbecue game.

To the self-proclaimed backyard grill master: We know, we know—you know what you’re doing. But, you might want to keep reading to touch up on your game or learn some healthy grilling techniques. On the other hand, if you’ve been too scared to touch the grill all summer, letting others man the meat, this advice is just what you need for some added confidence. Here are some tips and techniques from a true master, Joe Sasso, Executive Chef of The Great American BBQ Co., the pop-up barbecue joint that operates at Sam’s of Gedney Way in White Plains every summer.

1. Move It Around
If you are using a gas grill, do not turn all the burners on high. From left to right, you should keep the left burner on low or off, the middle burner on medium, and the right burner on high. You start grilling on the right side and move the food over to medium, and then to low or no heat.

2. Don’t Forget the Flavor, Before and After
Remember to season your grill with oil before placing food on the grill in order to reduce sticking. A lot of people season meats liberally before cooking them to get that delicious caramelized flavor, but are too eager to dig in to take the time to season on the way off the grill. Take a minute to sprinkle some sea salt, fresh cracked black pepper, and herbs to give it an extra fresh kick right before serving.

3.  Let it Rest!
The most important tip we got from Sasso is to let meat rest for five minutes before eating or slicing.

4. Avoid Cooking Chemicals Into Your Barbcue
The lighter fluid you use to fire up a coal-burning grill can cause you to burn lighter fluid into your meal. Sasso’s method for avoiding this is called “The Chimney Starter.”

He explains his method: “You load up the space on the bottom of the grill with a piece of newspaper or two, pile coals in from the top, then light the newspaper. The fire and heat from the newspaper ignites the bottom coals, and then the fire builds up. When the top coals are covered with gray ash, you're ready to go.

If you find yourself without a chimney starter, you can apply a similar method without the added equipment. Simply bunch up a couple pieces of newspaper and place them in the middle of the charcoal grate. Then build the coals up around the paper in a pyramid fashion, light the newspaper, and let it go. This will take longer to fully light than with a chimney, but the fire should still be ready in less time than it would take to burn off all traces of lighter fluid.”

Tips for Healthy Grilling

1. Remember that one serving of meat is only about three to four ounces and be sure to pair it with grilled vegetables. The healthiest options for meat are grass-fed beef, heritage breed pork, organic poultry, and wild seafood (rather than farmed).

2. Some veggie ideas: grilled artichoke halves served with roasted garlic and lemon aioli; grilled corn bites tossed with cilantro, lime, red chili flakes, olive oil, and queso fresco cheese; grilled whole leeks and sweet potatoes with salsa verde; grilled asparagus with chimichurri sauce; grilled Portobello mushrooms with barbecued onions; grilled jalapeños, scallions, and tomatoes for a flavorful salsa.

3. Dense root vegetables like potatoes, carrots, yams, beets, and rutabagas should be thinly sliced, tossed in oil and fresh herbs, and grilled with the cover closed. Serve them with your favorite dipping sauce, which you can make by puréeing any favorite delicate veggies like asparagus, scallions, red peppers, and tomatoes.

4. For dessert, try char-grilling fruit like pineapple slices, peaches, mangoes, watermelon, apples, oranges, plums, or ripe pears. Toast lightly buttered slices of angel food cake on the grill and serve with fresh berry “salsa.”

 

Bronxville Farmers' Market: FarmEats Sells Beef from Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised Animals

Farmeats at the Bronxville Farmers Market

By Mary Liz Mulligan, Market Manager, Bronxville Farmers' Market 


Jun. 3, 2015:  Another newcomer to the Bronxville Farmers' Market (BFM) this season is FarmEats. Drew George, who lives in Larchmont, was on a mission to bring beef from grass-fed, pasture-raised animals in an affordable manner to Westchester residents. After doing his homework diligently, he formed a very well-run business working with two local farms, Sweet Tree Farm in Carlisle, NY, and Lowland Farm in Warwick, NY, and for processing, LL Ranch, which is 20 minutes away from Sweet Tree Farm. When cows reach age 2 1/2, they are sent for processing. They are never given hormones and are given antibiotics only when necessary because of illness. The same family has farmed Sweet Tree Farm for two generations.  

The beef is aged for two weeks and then flash frozen to zero degrees and vacuum packed. Meats will last up to twelve months in the freezer. All are USDA approved and are stamped. 

Drew has a Beef-of-the Month Club, which gives you the option of ordering your beef online and delivered to your home within two days ($8 fee) or picking it up at the BFM (NO fee!).  You can check out this option in more detail at www.FarmEats.com

As I always have done, I have tried several cuts of what FarmEats has to offer and I can honestly say that they are superb! And they also have beef bones so you can now prepare your own home brew of the new craze--bone broth--as long as you have a day to dedicate to guarding your stove! As soon as the weather breaks, that IS on my list of to-dos. 

We had burgers last week, and as soon as I put them on the grill, I realized that that was the aroma I remember from my childhood . . . many, many moons ago. When I took a bite, I realized that this IS how we used to eat! Beef from grass-fed, pasture-raised animals! That was all there was to offer--thank goodness! Then the world became obsessed with the "quick fix." You know the rest of the story.  

I find it very scary to go into the center of supermarkets and read labels and realize that this is what we are eating . . . and this is what we are feeding our developing children. It is alarming. I shop only the perimeter of supermarkets when I have to use them! The old adage rings true--You Are What You Eat.

Why Eat Beef from Grass-Fed, Pasture-Raised Animals?

  • No need for added hormones.

  • Antibiotic-free.

  • Rotational pasture-raised cows eating grasses their entire life.

  • Humanely raised farm animals not crowded into unsanitary feedlots.

  • Saturated and monounsaturated: Beef from grass-fed animals has saturated and monounsaturated fats in amounts that are similar to, or slightly less than, those in beef from grain-fed animals.

  • Omega-6 Polyunsaturated Fats: Beef from grass-fed animals and beef from grain-fed animals contain very similar amounts of omega-6 fatty acids.

  • Omega-3s: This is where grass-fed really makes a major difference, containing up to five times as much Omega-3.

  • Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA): Grass-fed contains about two times as much CLA as grain-fed. This fatty acid is associated with reduced body fat and some other beneficial effects.

  • Vitamins B12, B3, and B6. It is also very rich in highly bioavailable iron, selenium, and zinc.

  • Vitamin A: Grass-fed contains carotenoid precursors to Vitamin A, such as beta-carotene.

  • Vitamin E:  Grass-fed contains more Vitamin E than grain-fed, which is an antioxidant that sits in your cell membranes and protects them from oxidation.

  • Micronutrients: Grass-fed also contains more potassium, iron, zinc, phosphorus, and sodium.

  • Grass-fed contains some amount of almost every nutrient that humans need to survive.

  • Grass-fed also contains high-quality protein and various lesser-known nutrients like creatine and carnosine, which are very important for our muscles and brains.

  • Lean, less fat, and lower calories gram for gram vs. feedlot grain-fed.

  • Great natural "beefy, dark meat, earthy, and grassy taste."

  • "Tastes like beef not fat!"

For more information on the benefits of pasture-based and grass-fed farming, go to animalwelfareapproved.org/consumers/health-benefits. Both farms are part of the Eat Wild community (www.eatwild.com).   

When I reflect on how the BFM has grown in the past fourteen years and how much I have learned, I realize that things weren't so bad way back when! I neither need nor want all the "quick fixes" out there.

I am more than happy to go back to basics. What's the rush? 

Relax . . . eat more beef . . . just make sure it's the healthy choice. You will really enjoy it and won't have to take out a loan to purchase it!
