WFMW: Lucky 3 Farms

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

It is Works for Me Wednesday, and do you know what works for me?
Grass fed beef.

When we were visiting my parents in NC a few days ago, their friends, the Nachtrabs, invited us out to see their place, Lucky 3 Farms. A spring calf had just been born, so we got to see this week old little fella.

He was precious, following his mama around. Mama's cow bell was charming, a word I never thought I would use to describe a cow bell. My pictures do not do this beautiful place justice. It was peaceful, pretty, and just plain wonderful.

Our hostess, Traci (feeding the donkey, above), couldn't have been nicer. She showed the boys all the animals, answered lots of questions, and even let us buy some beef. We don't eat a lot of red meat at our house, but it sure is nice to know where it comes from when we do. I put the sweet Italian sausage in some spaghetti sauce last week - yum.

Also, Traci maintains a funny, informative and photolicious blog about life on the farm. I highly recommend you check it out here. Get ready, you will become slightly envious and start longing for a simpler life.

Have you ever purchased meat directly from a farmer?
Have you ever secretly wished that you lived on a farm?

  1. There's nothing quite like having a whole pig from your back yard in your freezer.... Well, at least the idea of it.
    When I was younger, we were in 4-H, and raised pigs for auction and for meat. It was quite the experience; and moderately economical.
    I occasionally think living on a farm would be awesome... and then allergy season rears its ugly head, or one of the cats or the dog does something unmentionable, and I think: "No, suburban life is plenty for me to handle." :)
