No Turning Back!

By: Brooke Snow    (Jan 19, 2013)

Our family switched to a clean all natural diet 3 years ago and it has transformed our lives! Finding meat and produce that is grown naturally is often hard to come by to meet that standard. Enter Appenzell Farm! Their chicken is AMAZING. So amazing in fact, that it has ruined me. I can no longer purchase chicken from the grocery store and really struggle ordering chicken from restaurants now because I know what it could taste like without all the chemicals, hormones, and steroids that the average bird is pumped full of.

We participated in their chicken CSA half meat share for 2012, which put us on a schedule for 2 chickens a month. At first I was a little illiterate in knowing what to do with a whole chicken, not having experience cooking chicken that way. Appenzell gave me some incredible tips and now I find that it is super easy to prepare (we soak it in salt water for a few hours then roast in the oven with some spices) then we have great leftovers for a few days afterwards. We even make our own chicken broth from the remaining carcus--which makes the most amazing chicken noodle soup by the way (as in you'll be in heaven with every bite ;). I love that Appenzell was full of great tips on how to get the most use out of every part of the chicken.

We also participated in the produce share for 2012. The produce was always presented beautifully. Washed, bagged, and just overall lovely. No dirt still covered the vegetables, and always a great variety of vegetables--some of which I had never tried before. We had previously been getting our produce from a co-op (bountiful baskets) but had been disappointed in the quality. Appenzell produce was always extremely fresh and had some great recipe suggestions--especially for vegetables that were slightly less familiar.

Great farm. Great service. Great product. I'm so glad that I only live 3 miles away!
