Food of the Week: Griggstown Farm’s Roasted/Rotisserie Chicken
Hey, you know when you’re good at something. We know we’re great at raising the highest quality bird possible, and slow cooking them to perfection. You can call any day of the week to order a chicken roasted ready to go for you! We just need an hour’s notice, or you can chance it and see if there’s one ready by walking in! We highly recommend reserving one, because they don’t sit too long here. They’re stuffed with a careful ratio of Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, Thyme, and Garlic, and rubbed in Oil, Salt, and Pepper. They’re served with a wheat bread crouton, cooked in the drippings from the chicken as it cooks. Call any time of the day! All orders MUST be placed by 4:45pm that day ...

Geese are waterfowl belonging to the tribe Anserini of the family Anatidae. This tribe comprises the genera Anser (the grey geese),Branta (the black geese) and Chen (the white geese). A number of other birds, mostly related to the shelducks, have "goose" as part of their name. More distantly related members of the Anatidae family are swans, most of which are larger than true geese, and ducks, which are smaller.
The word goose is a direct descendant of Proto-Indo-European root, *ghans-. In Germanic languages, the root gave Old English gōs with the plural gēs and gandres (becoming Modern English goose, geese, gander, and gosling respectively), New High German Gans, Gänse, and Ganter, and Old Norse gās. This term also gave Lithuanian ...

Anything in their area is subject to close examination by them. They are calm and often underfoot during feeding time.

Pecan pie is a pie made primarily with corn syrup and pecan nuts. It is popularly served at holiday meals and is also considered a specialty of Southern U.S. cuisine. Pecan pie is often served with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Claims have been made of the dish existing in the early 1800s in Alabama, but this does not appear to be backed up by recipes or literature. Attempts to trace the dish's origin have not found any recipes dated earlier than 1886, and well-known cookbooks such as Fannie Farmer and The Joy of Cooking did not include this dessert before 1940. The earliest recorded recipes produce a boiled custard with pecans added, which is then baked in a pie crust.
Some have stated that the French invented pecan pie ...

In Commonwealth countries, poussin (pronounced /puːsæn/ and sometimes, less commonly called coquelet) is a butcher’s term for a young chicken, less than 28 days old at slaughter and usually weighing 14–16 oz but not above 26 oz. It is sometimes also called spring chicken, although the term spring chicken usually refers to chickens weighing 26–30 oz.
In the United States, poussin is an alternative name for a small-sized cross-breed chicken called Rock Cornish game hen, developed in the late 1950s, which is twice as old and twice as large as the typical British poussin.
At our farm store and farmers markets, you can find three varieties of poussins, whole, butterflied marinated with soy ginger or marinated with herbs. All are ...
