Craft on Draft at Farm Stand

craft beer draft

In recent years, we’ve seen an emergence of enthusiasm for craft beer – brewed in small batches and small micro breweries. Craft beer has never been more popular. In keeping with the times, at Farm Stand we now offer as much as nine craft beers on draft.

Our craft on draft includes beer from El Segundo Brewing, Stone, Strand, Eel River, Mad River, Chimay, Allagash, Cismontane, and Mother Earth Cali Creamin’. Best of all, every Wednesday and Thursday night, it’s 50% off all of our craft beers on draft.

What craft beers would you like to see on draft at Farm Stand? Let us know in the comments. Cheers!

What is Jidori Chicken?

Jidori Chicken
At some point you’ve probably come across the words “Jidori Chicken” on the Farm Stand menu and wondered what exactly “Jidori” means. Luckily, we are here to the mystery and fill you in on what makes Jidori special. You can think of Jidori as the Kobe Beef of Chicken – the highest quality meat for that particular animal. The biggest difference between Kobe and Jidori, however, is that unlike Kobe (Kobe, Japan), Jidori is not linked to a specific region on the map. Rather, Jidori is given its name because of its organic, free-range characteristics. The term “Jidori” roughly translates to “from the ground” in Japanese.

Jidori-style chickens first began being delivered by Chinese-American Dennis Mao in the early 1990s, who saw a market for high-quality, cage-free chicken. At Farm Stand we use Jidori chicken as part of our commitment to the freshest and most natural ingredients. Unlike many factory farmed chickens, Jidori chickens are fed an all-vegetarian diet that is free of hormones, steroids or other meat byproducts. The chickens are slaughtered and delivered on the same day to ensure meat freshness. Some Jidori-style chicken is even served raw, sashimi-style!

We encourage you to try the Jidori Chicken on your next visit to Farm Stand and let us know if you can taste the Jidori difference!

Finding Real Food at the Grocery Store

food label
GMO-free, antibiotic-free, hormone-free. These are characteristics you’ve probably seen on food labels while at the grocery store. These days it can get tricky trying to decipher what food is real and what is processed ‘frankenfood.’ Ideally, we would get all our food locally grown from Farmers Markets, but sometimes the grocery store is our only option. The best way to ensure you and your family are not ingesting harmful chemicals is to educate yourself about nutritional packaging.

Here are some things to consider on your next trip to the market:

GMOs: If you’ve been reading this blog then you are familiar with these nasty things. Studies have shown that genetically modified foods can aid in the development of tumors, organ failure, premature death, organ failure and a whole host of other unhealthy conditions.

Pesticides: Here’s another harmful element in our food supply that we can thank companies like Monsanto for. In the U.S., pesticide use is the norm in conventional farming. Ingesting pesticides can lead to birth defects, nerve damage and cancer just to name a few.

Hormones and antibiotics: In the U.S., livestock animals are contaminated with antibiotics, growth hormones and GMO feed. Growth hormones can cause the development of cancer, infertility and even more serious, an immunity to antibiotics due to their prevalence in the food supply.
