If you are looking for a great source of information about the latest in organic foods, you should read Farmfoods Reviews. This monthly Ezine provides consumers with the most recent information on organic farming news. They also provide an online discussion forum where readers can post questions and have them answered by experts in the field. The magazine also has some great photo galleries that have some stunning images of heirloom breeds like the New Zealand Scallop.
Recent highlights for the Farmfoods Market include the ever popular fundraiser for raising funds for certified organic dairy farmers in British Columbia. There are also fundraising efforts for specialty crops like alfalfa. The salmon and Herring farmers of Washington State are raising record numbers of salmon because of their delicious, nutritious white fish. California is enjoying a bumper crop of alfalfa thanks to the efforts of volunteers from the Organic Valley Growers Association and the Alliance for Informed Agriculture.
For those interested in buying farm products but are on a tight budget, there are many options available. From fresh to dried fruits, there is a wide variety to suit every taste. One item that many people have not tried is farmfoods-certified organic ice cream. Farm-grown organic ice cream has been available only since 2002, but it has quickly become one of the most popular items on the farm foods market. It is made with real milk from local farms. The creamy smooth ice cream is made from coconut milk and has no artificial sweeteners or flavors added.
For those who love the taste of fried chicken, farmfoods retailers now offer fried chicken that is farm-certified. The chickens are fed antibiotics and are not given hormones, and the resultant meat has an astonishing flavor. The chicken is tender without being greasy, and consumers find it delicious. The chicken has a very distinct, buttery flavor that is not found in fried chicken from “poodles” or other breeds of small chickens.
Pork is also widely available farmfoods, and consumers have come to appreciate its nutty, yet moist flavor. Although it is naturally lean, there are cuts that are more fatty than others. There is spare pork available, and consumers can choose from lean, half and full cuts. Grass-fed beef is very popular, and many farmfoods retailers sell grass-fed beef in whole animals as well as in cuts. Many grass-fed beef consumers say the taste is far superior to that produced from cattle that have been fed growth hormones.
Many consumers are concerned about their food and want to know where their food comes from. The vast majority of farms use the same natural sources that are used for pasture-raised animals. Feeds are collected weekly from the pasture and delivered to the farm. All meat is cleaned and flash frozen on-site before it is delivered. For grass-fed and pastured meat, this process is continuous. Cows, pigs and poultry are fed natural foods throughout the growing seasons and then fed beef, pork and lamb at market.
Farmfoods retailers often sell a wide variety of poultry, beef, turkey and fish to meet the dietary requirements of vegetarians, as well as animal health nuts and oils. They also carry a wide variety of exotic meats, including venison and sting ray. Chicken can be ordered via mail or phone and most online meat and poultry shoppers also find that many of the products they purchase have free shipping options.
For those people who enjoy the taste of grass-fed meat, but may not be able to afford it, there are other options. Animal foods manufacturers such as Pilgrim’s Pride offer high-quality meats and eggs from chickens raised on organic farms. Consumers can obtain ground beef, goat’s milk and organic sheep and goat meat from these same farms. For those who do opt for more expensive meats, some farm markets feature frozen products. These products have been processed and are in their own case and sealed with the appropriate labels to provide the highest quality to their customers.
