  • This Week on the Ranch: Easter Weekend

    By

    This week on the ranch, it was Easter weekend and everyone gathered at Mark and Patti’s home to spend it together. Plastic eggs filled with M&M’s covered the pasture in front of the house for the Whisnant littles. I was not sure that the little boys would really understand the concept of an egg hunt, but the night before, they discovered

  • Grass Fed Beef Tenderloin Filets

      It. Is. Cold. I’ve been doing snow dances all winter long waiting for just one more pretty snow that we could play in now that our son is running around everywhere! Well, been there, done that, got the t-shirt!   We ran all over town searching for tiny rubber boots and tiny gloves. The gloves were a no-go. Weston was all

  • Game Day Party Playbook

    By

        The “Big Game” is Sunday and even if you’re not excited about the game, who’s not excited about the food? Super Bowl Sunday is just another Food Holiday in my book (unless the Steelers are playing, but that is another matter entirely.) There’s nothing more fun than getting together with family and friends, listening to the guys making friendly wagers;

  • Four Great Meals, One Pork Loin

    By

    As in anything where you’re meeting new people, I guess I should start out by saying, “Hi! Nice to meet you all!” My name is Madison Whisnant, the daughter-in-law of Patricia and Mark. I’m married to the youngest of their three biological sons, Cody, and we have a beautiful, funny, just-learning-how-to-make-mommy-run-around-everywhere son and one on the way! As I am

    Big Ag Loses Attempt to Block COOL

    By

      The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia published a ruling yesterday that scored a big win for going forward with allowing Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) on products according to Food Safety News.   COOL requires that the information for where the product is born, raised and slaughtered/processed be placed on the label. We celebrate the ruling.

  • Grass Fed Steak, Beet and Blue Cheese Salad

    By

      The ranch is a busy place.  Meals often have to be easy as well as flexible.  We have always made it our tradition to feed whoever is around at lunch. That may mean just a few or up to a dozen.  Our open door policy means we at times have to throw a few more beans into the pot

  • Have You Hugged Your Farmer’s Market Today

    By

    This weekend we flew to Memphis to the “local” farmer’s market.  We do this several times in the season to purchase produce to “put up” for the winter.  This trip was aimed at buying heirloom tomatoes, lima beans and Lady peas.  For our large family this is a pretty hefty volume. I am passionate about local farmer’s markets.  In fact,

  • A Modern Tribute to Farming

    By

    The words of Paul Harvey reflecting a tribute to farmers made headlines this week when used in a Super Bowl ad.  I grew up on Paul Harvey’s Rest of the Story.  Listening to that smooth, one-of-kind voice I knew he must be the wisest person on earth (or so my parents and grandparents told me). Today I am a proud

  • A Family Farm Touchstone

    By

    There are places in the world to which we return in body or spirit whenever we need rest, renewal and enlightenment. It is there that we are able to set down our burdens and find rest; it is there that we can drink deeply from a fountain of strength, and it is there that I personally can hear and see
