Farmer Aaron and his family needed help. Completing all the farm chores, running a business, holding down a household, and being active with their church and community was getting to be too much to handle with sporadic help here and there. The Miller’s needed some relief. They needed some freedom. They needed some more sleep. So, farmer Aaron put an ad in the Busy Beaver...

You’ve likely heard the sayings “turn lemons into lemonade” and “don’t cry over spilled milk”. But what do you do with too much milk or sour milk? There certainly should be a saying about that. If you accidentally over-purchase milk or your raw milk sours faster than you can drink it, please don’t dump that wonderful liquid down the drain. The ladies on the farm worked so hard to produce it. I have a solution for you - “Ricotta get going!” Turn your extra milk into ricotta cheese!

The other day, I read a great opinion piece about how the stress of the pandemic is different from any other stress we may encounter. I chatted with farmer Aaron about this. The next day, I got an uplifting fax from him with some fantastic remedies for overcoming bad days. When I asked Aaron how he tackles a bad day, he said “Well, I don’t know, because I don’t really have bad days. Within a bad day, you can have a good day.”

There is only one reason soy is in animal feed - it’s cheap!!! Feeding animals soy leads to a plethora of negative health consequences. For a small farmer, this is a tough place to be. Produce more expensive healthy food or more affordable less healthy food? You can’t do both. Let’s think about this in a different way. Soy-free food is more expensive right now but will likely save you lots of money in the long run. All of Miller’s Bio Farm’s products come from animals fed a soy-free diet (with the exception of the “regular eggs” offered from time to time).

Chicken breasts are a favorite in my family. Baked, fried, sauteed, stir fried, or grilled. They’re so versatile and almost always a hit. In the summer, when I want to keep the heat down in my house and save energy, chicken breasts go on the grill. I love grilled chicken, because I can make a huge batch quickly and eat it as leftovers throughout the week. I typically go for the savings and buy the 5-pack or 10-pack and cook it all at once. Then, I can make chicken sandwiches, chicken salad, cubed chicken, chicken and noodles, chicken quesadillas, chicken stir fry, chicken tacos, chicken ramen, chicken pizza … I mean, there are SO MANY options! But… here’s the catch. It can be a bit of a challenge to master the art of grilled chicken breasts. They can easily be too dry or crispy on the edges. You’re in luck this week. I have some great tips for grilling the perfect chicken breasts!

I am very much enjoying my grill this summer. In my area, it’s been mostly HOT with not much rain. Perfect grilling weather! Burgers are so darn quick and easy and typically please even the pickiest eaters. It’s always good to know your family will eat the food you’ve thoughtfully sourced and mindfully prepared. And, we all know burgers are great for gatherings. The only problem with burgers is that they can get a little boring. So, why not dress it up once in a while? There are so many ways to elevate a burger. This week, I’d like to touch on my husband’s favorite - a fabulous blue cheese burger!

There’s something oh so satisfying about a delicious BBQ sauce. It’s so versatile. Add a punch of flavor to ribs, burgers, chicken, pulled anything, cocktail meatballs, salad, beans, potatoes, mushrooms, veggie skewers, and more! But, it can be challenging to find the right BBQ sauce. First, it has to align with your taste buds. Second, it has to align with your diet, And, third, it’s hard to find a store bought sauce without all the junk - fillers, emulsifiers, artificial flavors, etc. Why not make your own? It’s pretty easy but does take some time to cook down.

Farmer Aaron got his first grill ever. Wow! He’s ready to explore grilling this summer, and would love to take you on this adventure with him. A tried and true meat for the grill is a nice steak. Miller’s has a variety of 100% grass fed and finished steak options for you. Steak is pretty basic, but there’s a sophisticated yet simple way to dress it up - compound butter!
