Amazing Food!




Colonel’s Blog, Earthdate 31 July 2023…

Hey Y’all!


Good evening and happy Monday from Air2Ground Farms! We had another thunderstorm overnight and lost power for a couple of hours. It rained another 1/2”. The grass is loving this weather! The animals are doing very well. We spent some extra time with the ewe/lamb flock and the beef herd. They are all full bellied and satisfied. The gallery pics are the beef herd with the bull front and center, the flock on the hill, and the dairy cows with Stella. We made a trip to town to get the white truck inspected and renew the tag, total cost for the inspection and 2 years of tag renewal was less than $100. No big deal to some of you, but amazingly inexpensive to others. We picked 10 cabbages out of the garden! We’ve never grown cabbage and were honestly surprised when they did so well. That and the broccoli have been the biggest surprise because they have done so well. We worked on the podcast this afternoon and recorded the intro we will use for each episode. While doing that, we cooked 2 of our chickens on the gas grill and a duck from Lazy Duck Pastures on the charcoal grill. After about 2 hours of the duck cooking, we took it out of the aluminum pan and put it into a different one. I then put 6 duck wings into the pan the duck was just in, immersing them in hot duck fat and effectively frying the duck wings in duck fat. We had the roasted duck and fried wings for dinner with cabbage and tomatoes from the garden flavored with ham hocks from our hogs. It was amazing! We didn’t grow the duck but we got it from a local farmer that we know and trust. The rest of the meal came from our farm. The top pics are the cabbage from the garden and the duck wings. Amazing food is the main reason we are doing this thing and today was amazing.

I think I know why the ducks are laying so many eggs! They want to stay out of that pan!!

For sure! It's almost like they knew how close they were to the frying pan!
