Farmer Spotlight: Border Springs Farm

Our retail manager, Meg, is here with a seasonal farmer spotlight: Border Springs Farm. Find out more below. 

This Easter holiday, Foothills Local Meats is excited to offer our customers lamb from Border Springs Farm!

Border Springs is nestled in the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Patrick County, Virginia. Only 10 miles north of North Carolina, this award-winning farm raises Katahdin sheep, Texel sheep, and working border collies.

Katahdin sheep are a very special breed named after Mount Katahdin, the mountain that marks the end of the Appalachian Trail in Maine. Katahdin sheep have hard, black hooves that are very resistant to hoof rot, which is a huge issue in sheep production in moist, wet climates like the Southeast. They are also hair sheep, so they don’t need to be shorn in the summer, as they naturally shed with the weather, keeping their internal temperature as consistent as possible. From an agricultural standpoint, this is the best breed for this climate.

Border Springs doesn’t treat their sheep with any antibiotics or hormones, and all of their sheep live long and happy lives on pasture. Their farm also has a flock of sheep to shear for local spinners. With their commitment to conscious farming and raising happy animals, Border Springs grass-fed lamb is a product we are proud to sell.

For more information, visit Border Springs Farm online.

What's In Our Meat CSA Share This Week? January 19th Edition

What's In Our Meat CSA Share This Week:

Smoked Chicken and Cornmeal Dumplings: We asked ourselves, "How can we make everyone's favorite comfort food better?" This was the answer. Perfect for the chilly temps we've been experiencing. Just heat & eat!

Breakfast Sausage: Our breakfast sausage is made in-house and it's the perfect companion to eggs, biscuits or toast, and a side of grits. It also freezes well!

Smoked Bratwurst: Our smoked bratwurst, cured to perfection. These tasty brats can be pan-fried, roasted, grilled or boiled. Because they're so flavorful, you don't have to add too much to them. We recommend the classic method of boiling in beer and onions then searing in a pan on all sides until done. Add your favorite winter side dishes and you're ready to go!

Roast Beef: It's time to make a grown-up sandwich. Our roast beef is the perfect match. Try it layered with Swiss and tomato.

Beef Bacon: This hearty alternative to pork bacon is cured in-house, sliced and ready for the pan.

Ham Hock Rillettes: Our farm-to-table version of a deliciously rich spreadable meat. This is perfect for a simple lunch or to create a casual appetizer when entertaining guests. Pull out of the fridge half an hour prior to serving to allow it to soften a bit, and serve on toasted crusty bread or a hearty cracker and garnish with any kind of pickled vegetable if you want a complementary flavor. Enjoy!
