We honor the Thanksgiving
tradition, but remind ourselves that we always give thanks for so many blessings
that we have throughout the year. As we enter the holiday season we wish
everyone a safe and festive seasonal experience, while also acknowledging that
there are many in need and who have challenges at this time. This month we are
discussing turkeys of course – free range, and healthier choices, how to order,
etc. We also start our featured news with an alternative meat for
Thanksgiving, one in which the owner of Long’s Meat Market, Mike Wooley, served
his family for years on Thanksgiving day.
Thanksgiving Day ?
Duck with a recipe of a la orange was our favorite choice of meats for
Thanksgiving”, says Mike Wooley. “The meat is richer, does not dry
out as easily from cooking, and is delicious when served with the a la orange
recipe. We have fresh local duck in our store now during the holidays, and
suggest that you consider trying it out”.

MEAT IS BEST
“Tremendous money and effort is expended maintaining production
anti-seasonally, but meat is best in certain seasons, just as produce is. When
are the deer fattest in your area? Going into winter. Forage-fattened beef is
also best in the fall. Once the frost has killed flies and sweetened the grass,
cows are more comfortable than at any other time of the year. They naturally
ramp up their forage intake and back fat in fall to get through the lean, hard
winter. On the other hand, spring is when chickens lay enough eggs so there will
be extra for raising broilers. Seasonally speaking, it makes sense to eat
chicken in the summer and beef in winter.” Read full story >
Although this makes sense for a lot of reasons, here in the fertile Willamette Valley
we have an abundance of locally raised beef, cattle, and pork, that can also be
enjoyed in any season. As it gets colder and we need more calories, then
naturally meat will help with the nutrition needs as well as enjoying the many
tastes of recipes. Our meat packages are being advertised in the Register Guard
and can offer savings and a way to store some extra meat this fall and winter season. View our meat package web page
