Great Fall Lineup this week and a return of some seasonal items.

Delivery this week is Thursday Sept 21st.

We are moving into fall and opening up the cool weather menu …. and bringing back the Pot Pies .. the Chicken Soup and the Ravioli.

And we have fresh American Guinea hog cuts … these are really special pork products not available anywhere … so try them out …. entertain next weekend and feel good about Healthy Local food that supports breed diversity and the NON GMO movement.

I think we will have a nice flush of fresh oyster mushrooms to cook with and we will be adding our blond and Brown sauces that we use as a foundation for our pot pie gravies … These basic sauces are made from the finest local ingredients and are fantastic alone with all of our meats , or use them for the start of your own … once you get use to having one or both on hand you will not want to be with out them. !!

… and of course Chickens and ducks any way you want them

So order up … order here .. or text / call me (text is better .. I talk too much) at 860 922 7664

And remember ..

Delivery is moving to Friday this week. For AGH Pork … text/call me 860 922 7664

** note I have not loaded the AGH cuts into the “shop” portion yet … so just call or text me to order.  ***

Its all good … just a day late my friends … so order up for the weekend …. Red chickens … any way you want them …  American Guinea Hog specials … and MarWin Farm Duck .. almost ready to bring back the chicken soup and the pot pies … stay tuned !!

Full Loin Crown

Fresh “Hams” …  around four lbs with the bone in … very special …we can brine … wet or dry or take it fresh do with it what you want.

The Guinea hog is small .. very small … and very fatty … we trim the fat down for lard … so you get fantastic small cuts …. the entire loin will wrap and become the most elegant crown roast …. this my friend you can not buy in a store.

 

To balance out the rest of this spectacular  yet small animal .. we we de-bone the schoulder and tie the shoulder with the Boston Butt to make a roast for 4 !!!

 

All the American Guinea Hog is 16$ / lb.   order ahead … the cuts will stay fresh in the fridge for at least 10 days.

American Guinea Hog Fresh “Ham”

Lots of great stuff for the weekend

Note :  Next delivery Thursday Sept 7th. anywhere in CT.

 

We will be well stocked with chicken and Duck for the weekend … whole .. parts … all fresh some brined … and some smoked.\

Also we will have some very special pork cuts from an American Guinea Hog … this is an old farmstead breed … and as such is designed to produce meat AND Lard.  The fat on these “little fatties” is simply spectacular … The Guinea hogs don’t grow large .. and so the cuts will be “unique.  We will do half the pig as fresh and half in a special brine.  The hams will be small enough for a dinner party of 4 to 6 …. the brined cuts will be in an equilibrium brine so they can stay in the fridge for at least a week at least and they will not get “over” brined, as the salt content is based on the weight of the cut.

Also look for the return of pot pies and ravioli … ill let you know when they are in the Farmstand.

I am making fresh Garlic Scape pesto sausage today (remember we put up a couple hundred lbs of organic scapes earlier this season!)

There is still some fabulous mozzarella and other great cheese.

Lastly … I am working on the ultimate egg sandwich ….. home made over sized English muffin … duck egg .. still runny but not too …. caramelized duck neck onions (dont ask just eat …heaven) and a liberal lubrication of ….. Aioli … but what to put in the Aioli ??? not garlic I dont think …… lemon like a hollandaise ?   Herbs ?    thats the final piece … just not sure ..

Thanks for supporting the Farm

The Red chickens are now our official MarWin Farm bird !!! we are really excited .. not because we make more money on them .. we don’t …they eat more … and take much longer to grow … but they are simply a great, healthier, tastier chicken …. they are not quite as breasty as the commercial birds but thats all right  ….

 

Diversity is a key brick in our farms foundation and the “Red’s Reds” (we gave them that name) are in keeping with this principle …. also … because they are such a hearty bird we can keep them for breeding stock and mix with some other interesting breeds … much like we do in the summer with our Duck hatching program … I love this bird and I know you will.

Pork looks exceptional as usual, and the duck breasts are spectacular at about 1.5 lb per bird.

Order for delivery or pick up at the airstream at marwinfarm.com or stop by the Airstream for whats ready to go … we are pretty stocked up for the weekend .

 

Thanks for supporting the farm.
