I love wild rabbit, it’s incredibly sustainable, abundant and healthy. We should all be eating more of it. So on that note I have a recipe for you in collaboration with @badgerbeers. An Italian style rabbit stew to go with The Legendary Tangle Foot. The stew is studded with sultanas and laced with warming spices giving it a slight Agradolce feel. Much like the Tangle Foot which is crisp and malty with a subtle fruitiness from the hops. They pair wonderfully.
1.5kg of wild rabbit hind legs feeds 8
8 smashed cloves of garlic
Lots of pepper
A grated clove of nutmeg
2tsp ground cloves
8 Bay leaves
2 large onions finely sliced
150g chopped pancetta
8g fresh thyme
200g Pine nuts
Bottle of Tangle Foot
600ml chicken stock
In a bowl, mix together the ingredients for the marinade and add the rabbit. Massage into the legs, cover with a plate and press down to submerge the legs. Leave in the fridge overnight. The next day, heat some sunflower oil in a heavy saucepan that has a lid for later. Remove the rabbit from the marinade, shaking off any excess. Fry the legs in batches, sealing and caramelising the rabbit. It loves to stick and burn, so monitor the heat carefully and don’t worry too much about how brown you get them. Set the legs to one side when ready and heat the oven to 130 degrees celsius.
In the same pan add the pancetta. Fry on a low heat rendering out the fat. Then add the onions with a big pinch of salt. Cook until tender, then pour the marinade into the pan adding the sultanas, pine nuts and thyme. Turn up the heat and keep stirring to get those flavours mingling, and pour in ¾ of the Tangle Foot. Boil the beer to cook off the alcohol, then turn the heat down and add the rabbit legs, mixing them into the onions. Cover with chicken stock, making sure the legs are completely submerged. Then with a cartouche, press it onto the stew to form a seal. Put the lid on and whack the pan into the oven. Cook for around 3hrs until the rabbit is tender and falling off the bone, checking every half hour to make sure the rabbit is submerged, topping up with a little chicken stock if need be. #ad#badgerbeers#tanglefoot
Luna isn’t the easiest goat to make friends with - she likes to head butt and it’s a little intimidating, especially for the kiddos. My daughter is trying to sweeten her up by helping her reach these yummy branches. 💛🌿 #friendsnotfood

I’ve got big goals I want to work towards and accomplish this summer, and that starts now. I’ve got big dreams with fitness, coaching, finances, and our home. All of those things require a game plan and consistent baby steps. Some days those baby steps may look a little different than others, but I am determined to take them and get closer each and every day!

Bees are loving this plot of crimson clover 🐝 Interplanting large permanent sections of clover in our fields is making a positive difference in the biodiversity and life we are seeing both above and below ground, along with increasing soil fertility and organic matter while also decreasing erosion. These are a few of the many reasons that we use regenerative farming methods, because how we farm contributes positively towards restoring our ecosystem and environment.
This spring we have been making lots of positive progress, the wetness of May hasn't caused us any major issues or setbacks because all of our planting and field prep has been done by hand. Because we don't till or plow there is no excessive soil compaction or damage to our soil structure. As a result of the care we put into our fields, our soil has excellent drainage.
