PVF is a truly a mecca for the Organic eater...
By: (Aug 26, 2010)
When we moved from Pittsburgh to East Hickory in January 2010 it was a huge adjustment. We were used to having Whole Foods stores and organic meats and produce available on every corner; this was not the case in our new town we soon realized. I began to google organic food locations in January and was happy to have found an online delivery program, but I was THRILLED to find PVF! To have to wait from until April /May to visit my new found mecca was excrusiating, but it was SO WORTH IT (and now we will be stocking up to aleviate the lack of availability during the winter months).
PVF is a place we look forward to visiting nearly every Saturday. We love visiting the farm and seeing the animals and Emily.
The meats are to die for and knowing that they aren't full of hormones and that their veggies aren't laden with pesticides gives us peace of mind and I know that when I cook a meal it is truly healthy for my family.
The heritage breeds are a favorite of my husbands. We are planning to buy a heritage breed turkey for Thanksgiving this year and will be sharing it with extend family members knowing that it is healthy and wholesome and YUMMY too!
The roasts, both pork and beef, are fabulous. Put them in the crockpot with some broth and veggies (potatoes from PVF are definitely a favorite of ours too) and leave it on low all day while you go to work. Come home and the meat literally falls apart because it is so tender.
The+ recent scare with eggs and salmonella didn't even phase me because I knew that we get ours weekly from PVF.
Other items we love are the vinegars... put them on meats and salads and skip the processed, fat and calorie laden dressings you buy from the grocery store that have been sitting there for who knows how long.
We are excited to eat some of the lamb that we just purchased, but I know that it will be scrumptous as well.
I can't say enough good things about the farm, Emily and the animals. The quality and freshness are amazing and we will be customers for a very long time.
See you Saturday Emily!
