Episode 66: On A Northern Farm

After cooking some lamb at the Co-op in Ashland, OR we were on our way to Portland. And it just so happened that along the journey North was the farm where the lamb had been sourced.  We stopped, filmed, and were smitten with the couple who ran the farm as well as their dogs.  Some episodes are a culmination of days of footage, this episode was just hours.  But it was special.

    I think this is your very best video yet.  Stunning, smart, touching, reverent even ……..   Find a farm that raises Katahdins for the best quality lamb.  If you are ever in WV, I’ll give you some lamb chops or a leg roast to try.  Thank you, Steven Martin, Church View Farm, Romney, WV

    Thank you Daniel and Mirra for such a beautiful tribute to Ashland Food Co-op’s lamb provider. I hadn’t seen Tommy since he was a pup, which reminds me that I’ve got to get out to Magnolia Farm soon so I can pet the dogs and give hugs to M and A.

    I love my grass fed sweetgrass lamb from Montana. My hats off to the fine people who raise, treat, slaughter and finally consume any animal with dignity.

    Great episode. This article appeared in the Chronicle of Higher Education this morning and I think it relates very well to what you captured in Oregon. http://chronicle.com/article/The-Vegetarian-Lesson/128562/ 
    Enjoy the Pacific Northwest!

    “It’s a very serious thing to kill an animal.”  I could cry, this was so good.

    Nice segment…heartwarming to see that they have such similar emotional ties to what they do as a local couple here,who raise sheep in Penn valley,CA. James Ranch.  A vital component to the quality of the lamb.

    I’m so happy you not only stopped in Ashland, but that you came further north and shared the source of your lamb with us! I live in a community surrounding Roseburg, and it warms my heart and makes me proud to be able to support people like M farms. :)

    She’s a gem this one, I hope more and more farmers keep thinking like this about their animals.
