Fall is here. The equinox arrived on Tuesday, September 22. 

That is when the sun was exactly above Earth's equator, moving from north to south. Day and night were of equal lengths.

This is a special time of the year for many, and especially for farmers. It signifies a slight slowing of time or at least a slight drop in temperatures which always makes physical labor and the long days a bit more enjoyable. Although many children, teachers, and faculty returned back to school. On the contrary, the schedules of these individuals and their communities are suddenly more demanding than the summer may have been. For those who need to juggle more in the new season, the slow cooker comes to the rescue. It allows us to simplify one facet of our lives without sacrificing nutrition and flavor, and while delivering an extra dose of restorative comfort, too!

Are you a slow cooker fan? 

Then we suggest you try the recipes below this fall. If you’re not yet a fan, there’s no better time to get acquainted with this classic kitchen device. We of course recommend opting for REAL and fresh ingredients as much as you can - natural, organic, grass fed, raw, in season, and whole. Dutch Meadows’ beef, chicken, turkey and pork are all nutritious and deliciousoptions when exploring the recipes below. Don’t forget to check the dairy, produce, and pantry "aisles" for additional ingredients you can feel good about, too. Enjoy!

And as always, wishing you many blessings in good health!

RECAP: Fun Day On The Farm 2023

Want to take a photo tour of our "2023 Fun Day On The Farm"? This was our 3rd annual event we held Saturday 9/9, here at Dutch Meadows. It was a beautiful day to have the event and we hope for those of you that were able to be here, enjoyed your day as much as we did!

Summer Photo Tour

Wow, it's August already! Are we enjoying each moment of the season as it flies by? For me I know it takes effort to make sure I actually enjoy each moment to the fullest. Do you know what happens to life if you don't pay a whole lot of attention?

mRNA Vaccines? Not At Dutch Meadows!

So it seems like this topic (mRNA), has the hot seat right now right? If you are not familiar with what this is, you probably will be very soon! In other words it seems like it is some kind of "gene editing" through foods. Or maybe they're trying to get the folks that haven't taken the mRNA jab over Covid to get it somehow through foods?
