farm fresh recipes

Pack a Picnic & Recipe Contest!

There’s nothing like the Jersey shore on a hot and sunny summer day (ok, I know it’s raining today, but I can dream). What does this have to do with the farm you ask? The beach picnic, of course. Check out our new recipe section for inspiration and ideas! Looking for the ultimate beach picnic lunch? Pick up some farm fresh eggs and a baguette to make some pepper, egg, & onion sandwiches, nothing packs better, or try some mac n’ jack for comfort on a rainy day. Do you love cooking with our farm fresh products as much as we do? Then submit your favorite recipe using a Cherry Grove Farm product in our recipe contest! Recipes should include either our whey fed pork, pasture raised lamb, grass fed beef, fresh eggs, hand crafted cheese, or any combination of these. Submissions are due by Friday, August 2nd, and winners will be announced on Wednesday, August 7th. Post your recipes as comments or send them to our chef at beach small
