    I'm a farm wife and mom in Michigan, we raise all our own meat (except salmon) and are passionate about humane & ecological farming. I have access to farm produce that many people only dream about, and so have decided to learn more about cooking and using this bounty! Love what I'm seeing here :)

    Wow how cool. Welcome to ChefTalk we are glad you joined. My wife and I buy a half a pig each year from a local farmer and we also try to buy other food items each year from local or sustainable sources. It takes a bit of extra work but it is worth it. My wife and I love to head to Michigan (we are from Chicago) and often head to Union Pier area near New Buffalo. Do you sell your produce?

    We don't sell anything but eggs right now. Hopefully I'll have enough surplus to offer more items this summer! :)
