Happy Friday and welcome to the weekend!

Farm News

All of your favorite Piedmontese cuts are back in stock! If you are a fan of heart, tongue - or anything that generally comes one (or two) per animal, be sure to visit us early, as we do sell out fast! For those of you who haven't come out to our Sunday Farmstand to see for yourselves, all of our beef is bred on the farm, 100% grass fed and finished. We practice sustainable farming by rotationally graze our herd over 180 acres on pastures that are untreated with chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides. Our mission is to heal the land, promote positive growth, and of course give our cows a delectable menu of the freshest, most tender shoots of grass.

Will had the smoker out yesterday afternoon which means more Duke-approved dog treats are on the way for all you dog lovers out there! For those of you whose pooches haven't experienced this delicious, one-of-kind treat, we take the meaty bones of our premium Piedmontese and slow-smoke it for hours with pecan wood until it yields a completely human-worthy, yet-canine friendly delicacy.    


Featured Cut

This week's featured cut is the Ribeye. The ribeye comes from the, you guessed it, rib section of the animal. The term ribeye means a rib steak with the bone removed. Depending on where you go in the world you can hear this cut called Beauty Steak, Market Stek, Delmonico Steak, Scotch Filet, or Spencer Steak. The ribeye is a cut is especially known for being both tender and flavorful. While our meat is grassfed and therefore is more lean than conventionally raised meats, the ribeye is understood to contain more marbling than other cuts and therefore ideal for slow roasting or grilling.  

Where to find us...

  • Athens Farmers Market - Come see us at Bishop Park from 8am to 12pm. We will have our wonderful Piedmontese grass-fed beef fresh as well as our free-range eggs for sale! 
  • Oconee Farmers Market -  Find us in Downtown Watkinsville by the Court House from 8am to 1pm. Our Piedmontese grass-fed beef and free-range eggs will be for sale!
  • Wednesday Athens Farmers Market - We'll be at the parking lot next to Creature Comforts Brewing Company, 271 W Hancock Avenue, from 4pm - 7pm! We'll have eggs and grass-fed beef!
  • Sunday Farm Stand - Come visit us here at the farm between 2pm and 4pm this Sunday. We will have signs out on Colham Ferry Road so you know exactly where to turn in. This week's Gold Club Deal is a bag of our wonderful Keifer pears when you buy $10 of meat. Try these pears in a salad with goat cheese, dried blueberries, and walnuts, and a simple vinaigrette of olive oil and white balsamic. All of our farm produce is Certified Naturally Grown - which means no synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides or GMO seeds.

Matthews qualifies to take on Link in Post 5 battle on Watkinsville City Council

Longtime Oconee County resident and political observer Dan Matthews qualified today to take on incumbent Mike Link for the Post 5 seat of the Watkinsville City Council nonpartisan municipal election Tuesday, November 4, 2014.

Matthews ran three elections in 2011, emerging from a field of four to make a run-off against Chuck Williams for the State Representative District 113 race in special election to fill the seat vacated by Hank Huckaby becoming Chancellor of the Board of Regents, and then ran against Charles Ivie to become Mayor of the City of Watkinsville a few months later.

"I running for the residents and businesses of the city of Watkinsville, not against Mr. Link," said Matthews. "I think my opponent has done some great volunteer work with the Fire Department and the City Council, but I intend to come to this job with an open mind and a steady hand."

Link has summarily dismissed every vote for beer and wine permits in the city permitting process, never once voted for any business to be approved to sell beer and wine since the City of Watkinsville started serving before the county even approved a few years back.

Matthews maintains a residence in Morgan Manor Estates subdivision in Watkinsville and has been employed by the Oconee County government on two occasions (Rec Department and Eagle Tavern). He is a Notary Public for the third consecutive term, and is employed at the Law Offices of Eric K. Krasle and Associate as an office manager and paralegal.

He has volunteered on a number of committees for the county and also in coaching duties in soccer and basketball at the county level as well.

I do believe Mr. Link has an opponent (me)

Sheriff, GSP, and EMS units just worked a fatal crash in Bogart on the Atlanta Highway near the Bogart Pantry. The GSP is writing the report.
The names of those involved are not being released pending notification of next of kin.
Folks, when we are working a scene such as this, your needing to get to a hair appointment, needing to get to Auburn, wanting to get to the Bogart Pantry, etc, simply are not high on our list of priorities at the moment, and we are not just shutting down a highway for fun.
We understand that you are curious, but that isn't the time to play 20 questions.

Shipp, Chiles Author Primer For African-American Families
JUSTICE WHILE BLACK avail in October
Atlanta, Ga. - August 18, 2014 - The events in Ferguson, Missouri have cast harsh light on the excesses of the US criminal justice system when it comes to young black men. Every day, black men are stopped by police, arrested, and incarcerated at rates far beyond the national average. Too many, such as Michael Brown and Eric Garner, are being killed by police. Justice While Black provides clear-cut advice on handling specific legal circumstances such as searches, arrests, preparing for trials, and more. This is a must-read for African American families.

Justice While Black is a primer on how to navigate the US criminal justice system, explicitly addressing the struggles that face African Americans, especially young men. The book walks readers through the necessary steps to take during a stop-and-frisk, an arrest, and a trial, among other scenarios, and provides information useful not only to the accused but their families as well. Shipp and Chiles also delve into the long, bloody history between black males and the police, beginning with slave patrols and the KKK and ending with the drug-sentencing laws and racial profiling of today.

Justice While Black includes chapters on dealing with racial profiling, illegal searches, plea bargains, hiring attorneys, trial situations, and the navigating the prison-industrial complex as a whole. The straightforward, no-nonsense tone and clear language cut through the bureaucratic legalese that so often trips up the unprepared, giving readers information they need to know about their constitutional rights and advice on how to survive the system.

Robbin Shipp is an attorney in Decatur, Georgia, with almost 20 years of experience as a criminal defense lawyer. She lives in Atlanta with her daughter. She is a candidate for Labor Commissioner in Georgia. Nick Chiles has won more than a dozen major journalism awards, including a Pulitzer Prize as a newspaper reporter in New York City. He is the author or co-author of 12 books, including two New York Times bestsellers, one co-written with Rev. Al Sharpton and one with gospel superstar Kirk Franklin. He lives in Atlanta with his family.

Justice While Black, available October 14, 2014
978-1-932841-90-9, Law, Discrimination & Race Relations, $14
