Sunday’s Do’in!

It looks like it’s going to be a rainy Sunday but we’re ready for business no matter what the weather brings. Sharon Thompson, food editor, for the Lexington Herald-Leader newspaper but a nice little blurb in today’s paper so maybe it will help get the word out that we’re open for business on our farm! We sure do thank her. 🙂

I’ve been thinking more about really promoting our custom labels. We did one for a teacher appreciation week this week and they turned out great. Maybe visit a few of the wedding planners in the area or tuxedo rental shops…maybe even bridal shops. Our packets of herb seasoning with a custom label and the words “marriage adds spice to your life” on the back have been big hits as wedding favors. Of course, I can do just about anything that the bride and groom want. We’ve even done them for special occasions like 50th reunions and family gatherings. This might be the next thing I concentrate on. Just thinking out loud and trying to come up with yet another aspect of Herb’n Renewal! Lol

We enjoyed a bit of summer last night when Drew headed outside to barbeque some chicken breasts on the grill. We tried the Country Bob’s barbeque sauce and it was really good. Add some sweet tater fries and a macaroni salad and we had a summertime picnic in the middle of winter! Don’t forget that you can get a coupon for a free bottle of Country Bob’s wonderful sauce at www.countrybobs.com. I know, you’re thinking why the heck would we be promoting a seasoning when we blend our own. Well, this stuff is good and everyone needs a change now and again. Besides, it’s wonderful on a leftover pork loin that we grill with our Rub’n Season Pork! We’re hooked on the stuff so make sure you get your free bottle and give it a try.

Speaking of pork, how about having your own summer treat in the middle of winter with these great and good for you burgers.

Porkey Burgers

¼ cup minced onion

¼ cup minced green pepper

¼ tsp bacon drippings

1 egg, slightly beaten

¼ cup plain bread crumbs

1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

1 tbsp. Ketchup

1 ¼ lb. Ground pork

1 ¼ lb. Ground turkey

2 tbsp. Herb’n Cowboy

Saute onions and peppers in bacon drippings for 5 minutes. Meanwhile add bread crumbs to egg; add Worcestershire, Herb’n Cowboy and ketchup. Blend together. Add onion and pepper mix and blend in. Add ground meats and “squish” till well blended. Form patties and let sit in the fridge for at least 15 minutes. Grill or pan fry till thoroughly cooked. Enjoy!

Well, time to open the shop for the day. Don’t forget that we are open each Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 until 6. We’re super easy to find and only a short drive from Lexington. Take RT 27 south past Nicholasville. Go over the Kentucky River and look for RT 1845 on the right just as you go up the hill. Turn and go 2.4 miles and you’ll find us on the left. Hope to see you all at the farm! 🙂
