Description:
Virginia Cooperative Extension presents a Virginia Virtual Farm to Table Program titled "Beef" on Friday, June 26, 2020.

After learning a little bit about the beef industry in Virginia, we will zoom in on Fresh Branch Farm, a small but growing farm located in Southern Chesterfield County. We are excited for you to take a trip to this farm and learn to forage for plants without using a till, seed, or drill for Fresh Branch Farm’s grass fed/finished cow operation. This farm focuses on growing Piedmontese cattle which produces lean and tender beef thanks to their double muscling gene.

Danielle Wilson, the Foods and Nutrition Program Educator in Chesterfield County can't wait to get into the kitchen and teach you how to make a scrumptious meatball with lean grass-fed ground beef that includes items from a variety of food groups and puts your leftovers to good use.

Virginia agriculture is incredibly diverse, and despite our current challenges, farmers all across the commonwealth are busy keeping food on their customers' tables. In this program, we will take a virtual tour of ­­­­Virginia farms and learn how food is produced on them. Then we will learn how to prepare new recipes with those foods.

All sessions will be offered on Fridays at 2:00 pm, are 40 minutes long, and are open to everyone.
