Grass Fed and Organic
The GrassWay Farm is on a winding country road near New Holstein, WI. This is where people come to see happy animals, outside in their natural environment. No, you don't have to go to California. Sunshine, fresh air and nutrient-dense soils are our basis for healthy, happy animals right here in Wisconsin.
Stop in to chat for awhile, show the kids the new calves and free range chickens. They'll talk for hours about what they've experienced here, without the video games. We can't wait to meet you and show you how an organic family farm operates, using natural techniques in a healthy environment.
February Food Tip
Now is a great time to make deeply nourishing and satisfying bone broths. Chicken stock pages yield about 1 cup of meat, along with the ever-so-versital chicken stock. Cook the chicken stock bones about half an hour and remove the bones to cool enough to handle. Pick off all of the yummy meat. Then toss the bones back in the water with some apple cider vinegar (about 1/4 cup to 1 gallon of water), to simmer slowly 12-24 hours.
Beef bones (the knuckly and marrow bones) can be simmered up to 3 days (yes – I said 3 days). Strain and freeze. You will be astonded how easy and delicious homemade soups are once you have bone broths in your freezer.
