Ever wished you could go out to eat at a nice restaurant and enjoy a grass fed steak, with great flavor, that could stand on it's own without a lot of added salt or other unknown ingredients? Well, for a short time at least, now you can! The French Cafe in Omaha's Old Market area will be serving a grass fed beef entree! They have a young, aggressive and innovative executive chef, Travis Brink, an Omaha native, very interested in local sourcing and grass fed meats. They will have grass fed T-bones on their menu, April 30- May 2, while they last! This is the Berkshire Hathaway weekend. So you may have to work your way through a few Berkshire investors but it will be worth it. This a fine restaurant with great atmosphere. They are usually very busy on "Berkshire Week", but if you plan ahead and be prepared, it should be very enjoyable.
For the chef and the restaurant, it is bit of a gamble to offer grass fed beef in this cornhusker state. But, Travis and I believe there is support in Omaha for an entree like this. I hope he will be encouraged by the response. We feel very fortunate to be part of this venture. We (Range West Beef - L&L Jacobsen Farm) will be supplying most of the T-bones for the weekend. A friend and fellow grass fed producer from Spalding Ne, Jerry Glaser is supplementing our supply. Jerry is one of only a very few I would trust to help us provide quality grass fed for this initial venture.
I do not know how our steaks will be priced on their menu. But for reference, they have a Wagyu Beef Ribeye entree that goes for around $45. This Ribeye is hyper-marbled and like our our beef exclusive but quite different. The T-bones will be priced under the Wagyu, but still rather high by Omaha standards. I am sure if you want "cheap and fast" you would go elsewhere.
If you go, thank you! You are supporting local foods and grass fed. We have an ongoing opportunity here. But how we progress will depend on how our initial effort goes. Since there is limited local supply of quality grass fed beef, other vendors will be needed. Menu items will come and go but we hope this will be a great first step!

Our last scheduled volunteer work day for 2009 is this Sat., Nov 14th. We invite you all to come. Our plan for the day is to get our garden ready for the winter. There are weeds to be pulled, debris to haul away, hoses to store, and leaves to rake and spread on top. Bring a rake, shovel, gloves or any other tool you think may be of help, if you would like. Lunch will be cream of chicken and wild rice soup. If you would like to bring something to share let us know. Please RSVP so we know for how many to plan. 402-685-5263

Hi all! The Tea Trove just joined the NE Food Coop. I listed 5 or 6 blends for the order cycle that opened yesterday. Our custom line includes more than 70. All of our teas are hand-blended. Most are organic and fair trade/ETP. They make great gifts for the holidays. Have a great Monday!

Awesome, Joy! If you have time, you should post here each week to let us know what you'd have for sale during that week. Since I'm so close to your place, I know I'd rather buy all I can from you rather than from the store....and I definitely run out of my farmers market goodies by mid-week :)

Come check out the Benson Farmers Market every Saturday from 8am-12pm. I have a wide variety of heirloom vegetables available, organic growing method used. If you are in the area during the week and wanting some fresh veg, let me know, as I am happy to sell! I am located in the heart of Benson - come check out my stand at the market on Saturday - "Bedford Gardens".

Our next volunteer day has been changed to Friday June 19th. Please bring a sack lunch. We will provide drinks and dessert. You can arrive anytime and leave most anytime. Just let us know what you are planning on. (402) 685-5263 or mkvam@skyww.net We are anticipating people will arrive around 9:00 and leave by mid afternoon if the weather is hot. But some may want to come earlier if it is to be really hot day and some may want to come in the evening. Mark will be milking in the eveing and Molly will be putting the finishing touches on getting ready for market on Saturday but you are welcome to help us out with weed pulling or other such activities.

On April 18th we invite everyone to come help us on the farm. The big project for the day is pulling of pennycress. This weed makes for some nasty tasting milk if the cows get into it. Since we don't use chemicals on our farm we hand pull the weeds. Pennycress is easy to identify and easy to pull. Depending on the number of people here some may work in the garden and some may work on building portable chicken pens as well. Work begins at 9:00 and ends at 4:00. Feel free to come for the day or just an hour or two. Lunch will be served. (chicken salad, veggies, tea or water and dessert) Please feel free to bring a side dish to share or even to bring your own lunch if you don't/can't eat what we are having. We do need a head count so please let us know by e-mail if you are coming (mkvam@skyww.net). Hope to see you at the farm. 2235 K RD West Point, NE 68788 see our website for directions www.kvamfamilyfarm.com
