What to Do With Whole Chicken?

What to Do With Whole Chicken?

The comment we hear most often from folks regarding purchasing our pasture raised chicken is “I don’t know how to cut up a whole chicken”. Roasting a whole chicken in the oven with potatoes, carrots, or other vegetables can be one of the easiest and quickest dinners you can make. If you don’t want to heat up your oven during the summer then put the chicken in the crockpot and come home to a delicious smelling house and a mouth watering meal. If you want to learn how to cut up a chicken there are several YouTube videos that take you step by step through the process or call me and I’ll be happy to set up a time for you to join me at the farm for a personal demonstration and practice session. The great thing about a cooking the chicken whole is that after you settle down for that first dinner you then have enough leftovers for chicken salad, chicken and noodles, chicken tortilla soup, etc. The possibilities are endless. Hope to see you at the farm Sat. July 20th or Sat. July 27th noon – 5:00 to stock your freezer with chicken. You can also contact me to set up a pickup or delivery time that works with your schedule.


We are just now beginning to see a few grapes go through verasion.  This year we are running 3-4 weeks behind previous years.  When verasion takes place the sugar content in the grapes is rising and the acid levels are dropping.  The most common way to know we are entering verasion is that the grapes begin to turn colors.  Reds begin taking on their beautiful dark color and white grapes begin turning a golden color.  As soon as all the grapes have turned colors we will start checking the brix (sugar content) trying to determine when they are ready before we begin thinking about harvest dates.  Look for harvest dates in August and plan to bring out the whole family to pick grapes. It is a super fun way to spend the morning.

Since 2009, Carolina Story (Ben and Emily Roberts) have been hard at work writing, recording and releasing music every year; each release astonishingly better than the last. Starting as starry-eyed newly-weds ready for the road ahead with their self-titled debut evolving into wise, road-worn troubadours with their most recent release ‘Home’. Currently Carolina Story is working on their 4th album that, thanks to their successful Kickstarter Project, will be recorded, produced, and released “the way we’ve always wanted to.”
here’s a little preview:

We enjoy opening up our home for events like this – providing artists an opportunity to share their music to a listening audience in an intimate setting.  This is not a ‘party’.  We are not a bar.  We love to share these amazing musical experiences! All we ask is that you make a donation to the artist as well as be respectful to the artist, to our other guests, and to our home.  Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions!

Welcome to Redbud Farm and Vineyard.

Redbud Farm and Vineyard has grown so quickly we can barely keep up with all the changes in real life let alone here in cyberspace. But we are working on it!

We have just started our first batch of pasture raised chicken for 2013. The Thanksgiving turkey order has been placed – we can still add you to the list to reserve a fresh turkey for you! The pigs are getting bigger and bigger every day. We are expecting a calf in early May (a calf!!!) and have 3 calves that are growing like weeds. The laying hens are hard at work with the onset of spring – and we will have a dozen more laying hens in just a few days. The grapes have all burst their buds and are looking fantastic!

All the cabbages and broccoli are looking good, potatoes have sprouted, the tomato plants are doing fantastic!! And the beans, squashes, corn and pea beds are just about to be planted. Any day now we expect to see beet, carrot, radish and turnip sprouts pop up.

The farm is hosting it’s third concert very soon. House concerts have been such a fun thing for us. Watch here and friend us on facebook for the latest information and scheduling of concerts.

Lots of fun things going on this summer: Watch for a calendar of events, workshops, harvest days, concerts, and open farm days to just look around, help out, or just sit and enjoy the solitude of the country.
