It’s February, and as we mentioned at the beginning of the month, it’s Pork Month here at Pasture Prime Family Farm. Below, we’ll also share some “news from the farm,” as we like to call it – the latest updates on our chickens, calves, and turkeys. And of, course, we have a sale item this month – chickens.
Order your ground pork from us today – our freshly-ground Berkshire pork comes from our free-range heritage breed pigs, which are raised on an all-natural diet of grain, acorns, and other goodies foraged in our woods. The ground pork has a rich, amazingly succulent flavor, and it goes perfectly in a variety of dishes. Scroll to the bottom of the page for an amazing recipe featuring our ground pork on skewers. Just delicious!
And, the news from the farm…
Well, spring is certainly around the corner, but we’re still carrying on with our winter chores. Currently on our agenda, we’ve been welcoming new baby Wagyu calves to our farm. Our baby pigs are growing like weeds, and we’ve started incubating turkeys as we prepare for a big Thanksgiving harvest this year. All sorts of barnyard babies and fun to keep us busy!
And of course, we’re going to leave you with a special sale…
Right now, we’re pleased to offer you a deal on our heritage-breed, free-range milk-fed chickens. Just $35.00 for two whole birds. They’re perfect for a family meal, on the weekday nights or on the weekend. If you’ve never tried heritage-breed, free-range milk-fed chickens, then you’re in for a sure treat. The flavor and juiciness of our birds is simply incomparable. We can only ship our poultry within Florida.
Here’s a fantastic recipe, featuring our ground pork.

Prep and Cook Time: 40 minutes
Makes: 4-6 servings
1 ¼ pounds of Pasture Prime Ground Pork
1 ½ tbsp. minced garlic
2 tsp. each ground cumin and paprika
½ cup finely chopped onion
1 ½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
- Soak 8 wooden skewers in water for at least 30 minutes (if using metal skewers, proceed to step 2.) Drain and set aside.
- Meanwhile, heat up a charcoal or gas grill to medium heat (350 degrees to 450 degrees). You can also prepare these on a broiler – just turn halfway through.
- In a medium bowl, stir together pork, garlic, cumin, paprika, onion, salt, and pepper. Form into small meatballs, each golf-ball sized, then thread meat onto skewers.
- Grill skewers (close lid on gas grill), turning once, until browned on both sides and no longer pink in the center – about 8 minutes.
