Yonder Way Farm & Bacon Deviled Eggs

untitled-20How many of you know your farmer? Can say you have met the wife and kids? I am sure it is a very small population of people who can answer yes to both of those questions. Luckily I am one of them.

I have been buying pork, chicken, eggs, and beef from Yonder Way Farms for about 2 years.  If you live the Houston area, I definitely recommend checking them out. The best part about Jason is his openness and honesty towards his customers.  Every time I pick up, he is always willing to answer any question I have, including questions about feed and living conditions of his animals. The fact that you can pick up at the farm always gave me a sense of comfort, not that I actually ventured out there, but yesterday that changed. Yonder Way sent out a potluck invite to all of there customers. About 50 families showed up including many kiddos running around. It was great to see such a wonderful, supportive community show up. untitled-61

Gathering together to start the tour before dinner.

untitled-66Jason and his wife , they definitely seem like two peas in a pod.

The night started with about an hour tour where Jason explained the ins and outs of his operation and walked us around the property.  You could tell the kids were having a blast (well all except the kid who got stuck in the mud, to bad I missed that photo op). untitled-96untitled-2untitled-83untitled-138untitled-77untitled-103

 

I was truly surprised on how free the animals are to just roam around. I mean this pig was just walking between all of us, totally unfazed by us. All the animals truly are free range. Oh and those turkeys sitting on that fence, those are like the happiest turkeys alive because they are Jason’s PETS, he is not selling those for your Thanksgiving table.

Next was on to the chicken area and pig pond.  And yes it is November in Texas, shorts can still be worn.

Around 5:30 the sun starting setting fast, so we all gathered under the trees to dine together.

untitled-164untitled-167untitled-172What truly is remarkable to me, is that Yonder Way feeds their pigs and chicken a non GMO, no soy or corn feed and that this community supports that decision by paying the extra cost. I love that I belong to a community that is willing to do what is right when it comes to our food.

Thank you Jason and Lynsey, we couldn’t ask for two better and nicer people to do the hard work necessary to bring us all truly sustainable meat.

Now on to the recipe…

I brought along two dishes to the potluck.  One was the No-Bake Samoas Cookies found here. I rolled them in the melted chocolate this time and put them into individual mini cupcake holders.

The second dish was Bacon Deviled Eggs which ended up being super delicious.

2013-11-16 12.12.43 Ingredients:

  • 24 hard boiled eggs (I boiled mine in the pressure cooker, makes them super easy to peel)
  • 4 strips of thick cut bacon, plus two tbs of bacon grease
  • 1/2 cup homemade mayo
  • 1/2 tsp dijon mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbs chopped scallions, plus more to garnish

Directions:

  • Hard boil eggs by method of choice, I did this 1 day ahead of time and stored them in the fridge.
  • Peel eggs and cut in half lengthwise removing yolk into large bowl. Place whites on a platter.
  • Cut bacon into small strips and fry until crisp, moving to a paper towel once done.  Strain the bacon grease and add 2 tbs to the egg yolks.
  • Add mayo, mustard, salt, pepper, and scallions to the egg yolks. Mix with a had mixer for approximately 30 seconds or until everything is incorporated and starts to look smooth.
  • Add mixture into ziplock bag and cut a small hole in one of the corners.
  • Fill egg whites with egg yolk mixture.
  • Garnish with bacon and scallions.
  • Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.

  1. Thanks for another magnificent post. Where else could anybody get
    that kind of info in such an ideal method of
    writing? I have a presentation next week, and I
    am at the search for such info.

  2. Hello admin, i found this post on 13 spot in google’s search results.

    I’m sure that your low rankings are caused by high bounce rate.
    This is very important ranking factor. One of the biggest reason for
    high bounce rate is due to visitors hitting the back
    button. The higher your bounce rate the further down the
    search results your posts and pages will end up, so having reasonably low
    bounce rate is important for improving your rankings naturally.

    There is very useful wp plugin which can help you. Just search in google for:

  3. An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I believe that you should write more on this topic,
    it may not be a taboo matter but generally folks don’t talk about such issues.
    To the next! Kind regards!!

  4. On the opposite hand, there also are masses of folks who would more than possible be ready and willing to put
    their trust in a very medicine type that was their last hope to heal
    their body and mind. The skill of the acupuncturist is being able to insert needles into the right points so as to restore the flow of Qi to
    normal. From a Chinese medical point of view, energy moves
    through the human body along fourteen main pathways and when the flow of this energy is
    obstructed or blocked, the result is disease or injury, such as pain, reproductive disorders, or
    gynecological problems (to name just a few).

  5. hi!,I like your writing so so much! proportion we keep up a
    corespondence extra approximately your article on AOL?
    I need a specialist in this space to solve my problem.
    Maybe that is you! Loking ahead to look you.
