Farm fresh (ONM) is a local, vertically-integrated, family-owned and operated meat company producing and selling natural meat products. We focus our sales and marketing emphasis on Oregon animals, local feeding systems, local suppliers and local customers, all in an effort to support the growing “Locavore” movement. Only pasture raised and source-verified beef cattle are selected for the ONM program, and are then fed a high-quality, 100% vegetarian diet consisting of “Upcycled” brewer’s grain from Ninkasi Brewing Company and/or “Upcycled” grass pellets from the Willamette Valley of Oregon. Our cattle are carefully processed at a small local USDA federally inspected facility near Eugene, Oregon.
Are you a Locavore? A Locavore (n) is a person who attempts to buy and eat only foods grown, produced and processed close to their home. Animals in the Farm fresh Meats program are born and raised in the Pacific Northwest and then finished and processed using small, family-owned and operated companies.
At the moment, I'm picking lots of these in the veg garden at Bore Place. They grow really well in the UK and I much prefer them to their slightly stringier relatives, runner beans. You can enjoy local French beans from around June through to September. I would never buy out of season imported French beans as it takes a massive amount of water to produce them and they have to be air freighted in, often all the way from Africa
Fresh French beans are an excellent source of dietary fibre, vitamins A, B1, B6, C, antioxidants and lots of minerals. They are also very low in cholesterol, sodium and fat
I only really use recipes as a guide, as for me, it all depends on what you have in the fridge. Use what you have and don’t be afraid of experimenting and substituting things, this can lead to great new ideas and combinations. Learn the techniques and apply them to your cooking!
