Five free advertisements in one this week.

If it is truly grass fed beef, which I doubt, nobody in their right mind would eat it because it is terrible, and has no flavor.

Actually, all grass fed beef tastes rather gamey unless grilled with a lot of spices over a wood fire or BBQ'd in a pit.

Wonder if Maite Kropp will be at the event flooding everyone with her crocodile tears.

Ahh...another foodie event at the novel farm in the "country."

Dress code is khakis, floppy straw hats and Berkenstocks.

Will they be sampling the grass itself?

Might as well have a venison steak. Same prep work.

A nice New York steak - medium rare - sounds good. Please make your fresh bread, Gran.

I still wonder what will go on out at Sell Food Farms. Will they be shaping tofu into little T-bones? Will there be little napkins for their grass stained cheeks?

Soul Food Farm.

It is way past the time that the county exercise it's right of emmenint domain in that section of Pleasants Valley Road and condem the little "farms" so the land can be developed into gated exclusive communities in order to meet Solano County & Vacaville development goals the call for more executive type housing.

There is a heck of a lot more money to be made in developing land then farming or ranching it in the 21st century. More for private developers and ultimately, higher property tax revenue for the city & county.

Thanks, John. I was being facetious.
I agree with you.
It's amazing to see normally intelligent local folks running out to support this sprinkling of hen houses and flower potteries along PVR as if the sight of a hen laying an egg or fresh basil is something spiritual.
Now, the Bay Area transplants are going to profit on the local stupids by telling them that grass fed beef tastes good.
Where's the corn?

Sounds good. Okay, I'll bake bread, but who will barbeque?

LOL.

Cher? Wow, with the wig and eveything? He needs some beef from this event to fill him up.

This event sounds terrible. Who wants to learn about or even witness butchery? Sounds like a course done by a serial killer.

Thanks Joe. Are you still doing custom cut and wrap?

If they want a real butchery demonstration they would have to get Frank to come out from dixon and show them how it's done. They better do it soon though, I had him do a steer for me a few months ago and he said he's fixin to retire.

I hate the headline on this article! It sounds beastly. Who will pay $99 for a steak dinner to support Soul Farm? Oh yes, Richard Rico.
