Meeting Our Meat

September 26, 2010 at 11:22 am (Cooking, Just Photos)

I am behind on my posts…I have a few stories I’d like to share, but I can’t find the time to write them out!  We’ve had a few sick bodies in our house this week, both people and animals, and a few days that have been really rough.  So, until I can catch up on everything, here are a few pictures to tide you over:

We stopped by our meat farm to see how the turkeys are doing.  They are free-range, and we were allowed to walk right into their pasture.

They are very curious when people come to see them.

One of these turkeys will end up being our dinner.

It’s kind of sad to think about it, especially when you get to meet them like this, but they are raised for food.  It does help to be able to see the high-quality, low-stress life they live.

Here is a male heritage turkey.

We wil probably get a female, since they finish smaller.

We also had to pick up some eggs while we were there:

    Very cool! We’ve been in a meat CSA for almost a year now and we’ve yet to make the trip out to meet our meat.

      Going there the first time meant we had to explain a few things to the kids, but they seemed to do fine. Elia understood a little more the reality of what happens to the animals (though not the details). I love that our kids know exactly where food comes from.
