No Grocery Store, Days 183-185 July 6, 2010
Day 183, my half way to a year point, was Saturday. I started off at the downtown Farmer’s Market with a couple of missions, purchase a whole chicken, purchase Kocurek ribs for a party on Sunday, and have a hot Dai Due breakfast, on the next to last week they will be available this year, unless the City changes its ordinances. For breakfast, Dai Due chorizo, duck egg breakfast taco on El Milagro corn tortilla. Perfect. I picked up the ribs from the Kocureks, as well as some other tasty things, coffee from Texas Coffee Traders, and sadly no Bella Verdi lettuce. The chicken was last, and it was a doozy, 6.5 lbs, from Smith and Smith Farms. I also got some eggs from them.
One of my goals going forward, is to find solutions to my perceived problems with buying everything at the farmer’s markets and local farms. Saturday was the day I was going to teach myself to properly break down a chicken. I’ve done it before, find it difficult, and have had very lopsided results. So today, I was prepared to take my time and follow instructions.
I succeeded, although I think I want a cleaver to break the bones easier. So for dinner, grilled chicken, and grilled corn, onion and tomato salad.
I love their pastured and free range chicken and eggs! So much more flavor and all the extra Omegas and vitamins minus the soy GMO passed on from the soy pellet feed chickens. I have been on a quest to eliminate all GMO from my diet including the diet that the meat I eat eats.... S & S is the only farm at the Barton Creek FM that sells eggs from free range chickens - both Vital Farms and Full Quiver feed their chickens soy pellets - I asked.
On a side note their pigs get to keep their tails until they are ready to go to your plate! Did you know that conventional hog factories immediately chop the tails off of pigs with no anesthesia because when packed in so tight these intelligent animals will get so frustrated they will eat off each others tails. If that does not turn you off Conventional made Bacon ...
Smith & Smith Farms free range farm fresh brown eggs are the freshest you will ever find! We guarantee that our eggs are no more than 3 days old! We hand gather our eggs daily for freshness. Then they get washed and weighed and put into recycled pulp cartons. They all go straight into the fridge. Our eggs will keep in the fridge for up to 6 weeks. So if you want the freshest farm fresh eggs, you won't find them anywhere else but at Smith & Smith Farms!
*Customers pick up orders of lamb and eggs during the Local Farmers Food Festival held Thursday evening in the parking lot of Yowell's Boat Yard, 3500 Franklin Ave.
Twin brothers Colby and Cory Smith raise lambs and free-range chickens on their farm near Belton. They typically sell chicken and lamb products and farm-fresh eggs to restaurants and at markets between Bell County and Austin. Now they have added Waco to their list of stops.
"This is a full-time job for us," said Colby Smith, adding that the U.S. Department of Agriculture inspects his meats, "and we know what our animals have eaten from they day they are born until the day they are processed."
