Frequently Asked Regenerative Agriculture Questions and Answers

We get it, it can be overwhelming at times, even daunting, to keep track of the local, ethical food system, all the practices, certifications and movements. The funny thing is, a lot of times these movements are nothing new, they were just given a new name or shined on in a new way that illuminated them enough to start a movement or enter mainstream media.  This can be good and bad. On one hand, word is spreading. On the other hand, these movements seem to shift so regularly, and word spreads so quickly and widely, that the constant onslaught of “new things” naturally causes consumers to put a wall up. We become skeptic and we question credibility. Take regenerative agriculture...

What is Heritage Pork and Why Should I Buy It?

First off, you should know that Cotton Cattle’s heritage pigs are a cross between Berkshire (known as the world’s best), Duroc and Chester White. We don’t raise the pigs ourselves.

It’s super simple and incorporates chimichurri, which is a simple condiment we love whipping up at home to drizzle on our perfectly prepared meats quite often. As simplistic as gas grilling can be, there’s just no replacement for an old fashioned fire grill....

The DIY Dinner You Need Now More Than Ever

When we think of appreciating the pace, nostalgia definitely kicks in. It wasn’t that long ago that the whole word was smart-phone-less. Isn’t that crazy? Life naturally moved slower because you could only be where you were.  Visions of perfect summer days at the local park or a community center are the epitome of nostalgia for us - the sound of laughing children, the soft roar from a group of excited (possibly over-enthusiastic) parents erupting from a far-away bleacher, the scent of outdoor grilling drifting through the air on an early Sunday evening as you cruise around on your hand-me-down bike with a gang of friends in tow. This Americana memory is made only better by the effortless but nourishing...

5 Easy and Delicious Meals to Enjoy this Memorial Day

We can’t quite believe it’s almost memorial day ourselves but, sure enough, when you peer down the monthly tunnel, May 25th is in sight and will be here before we know it. These past couple months have seemed to drag out and fly by all at the same time, right? For many of us this Memorial Day is going to be a little different because we will likely not be able to surround ourselves with our beloved communities, whether that means your family, friends, neighbors, or beyond. However, this shouldn’t mean that we don’t take the time to appreciate the company we have, reflect on our nation’s past with gratitude, and treat ourselves to a nourishing culinary experience. As always,...
