The Pasturage LLC of Montague
What we call pork loin roast here at The Pasturage goes by many different names. Some call it a pork rib rack, similar to a rack of lamb.  Some call it a rib roast, similar to a standing rib roast of beef. Some call it the prime rib of pork. Whatever you call it, it is a little known and extremely underappreciated cut of pork. Those that are in on the secret rave about it. Look it up! Try it for Easter instead of ham! You won’t be disappointed!

Friday Update Newsletter
There’s still plenty of time to get a preorder in, particularly your meat purchases. In these times of high fuel prices every presale helps our small local organic farmers stay in business, by having meat presold, rather than lugging heavy freezers of meat down to market and hoping it sells. Thanks for your preorders!

The Pasturage may have some new pork products available, see her listing for more info. Earthscape has a sale on beef bones for broth (great broth ideas in  NY Times bestselling Bone Broth Diet by Kellyann Petrucci, MS, ND). And Forest Finds has FIVE new products to offer, including Tallow Balm & Turmeric Honey (great with milk in chai tea!).

New! We have spicy breakfast links in lamb. They are similar to chorizo, with a little more heat. I would say it’s like a medium salsa kind of heat. Delicious! Speaking of lamb sausage, the lamb kielbasa has no sugar or dextrose and it is probably my favorite sausage that we offer. If you’re looking for a sugar free pork sausage, we will have polish sausage in perhaps by this Saturday, the 26th. If not then, look for it April 2. Enjoy!

The Pasturage LLC of Montague
We are sold out of the pork whole shoulder roast but we have several half shoulder roasts available and I figure y’all are smart folk and can put two and two together!  Also, don’t forget that the butt roast is also from the shoulder and is typically used for pulled pork.  We have several whole butt roasts left.  We also have bone-in loin roasts, which have been called the “prime rib of pork” by chefs.  Keep that in mind as Easter approaches.  Finally, don’t forget the fresh ham.  Watching what you eat?  This is the perfect answer.  It’s pure pork without the pesky preservatives (no salt, no nitrates, all flavor).

Plant facts! 
Stinging nettle has been used for centuries as a food and fiber source. Did you know that stinging nettle can be a good source of iron and calcium? It is a nutritional powerhouse! A study showed three times more protein than wheat or barley and less than half the carbohydrates.
Young spring nettles make a delicious pot green. You can find stinging nettle in our Nourish tea, and Wild Green Salt.

Plant facts! 
Stinging nettle has been used for centuries as a food and fiber source. Did you know that stinging nettle can be a good source of iron and calcium? It is a nutritional powerhouse! A study showed three times more protein than wheat or barley and less than half the carbohydrates.

One final word about bone broth and my encouragement to use all sorts of cuts from all sorts of animals, provided they are nutritiously fed and well cared for. Feet. Yeah, I’m back to that. I just want you to know how precious feet are. It’s difficult to find them, of any species. I can only sell trotters, or pigs feet. In order to sell the feet, the pig must have been scalded, not skinned. There are very few slaughterhouses that scald anymore. My friends, you have a resource available to you not found readily anywhere else. Make use of it!

Stinging nettle has been used for centuries as a food and fiber source. Did you know that stinging nettle can be a good source of iron and calcium? It is a nutritional powerhouse! A study showed three times more protein than wheat or barley and less than half the carbohydrates.
