About Grass Fed Beef

Beef can be trimmed of unwanted fat. It is visible on the meat, allowing consumers to control exactly how much fat is removed and how much remains. Although it is leaner than grain fed beef, if your organic grass fed beef isn’t quite lean enough, it’s easy to remedy!

Your Connecticut Food Forest

Your garden can supply an abundance of food – seeds, nuts, fruits and more compromise a “food forest”.   A food forest is a multi-layered composition of food-producing plants.  It is ideally low-maintenance and produces a wealth of edibles.

Want to eat more organic food? A food forest is a great way to do that.

Permaculture design identifies seven layers in a food forest, from the tallest trees in the canopy continuing down below the soil layer.

There are many varieties of plants that are routinely available in Connecticut garden centers, including a few examples below.

The New Jersey tea requires between 25 and 60 inches of rain per annum. It is Native to CT.

The New Jersey tea has a Late Spring bloom period. Propogated by Bare root, Container, Seed, the fruit/seed period of the New Jersey tea lasts from Summer to Fall.

Surviving in temperatures above -28°F, the New Jersey tea is in the Buckthorn family. It’s scientific name is Ceanothus americanus, and it has a High drought tolerance.

While a plant may be listed as fruit-bearing in Connecticut, you might not have the best growing conditions in your specific area.

Talking to your local garden supplier is a great way to learn more about the plants, shrubs and ground species that will be the perfect fit for your new food forest.
