Took a trip to WoodsEdge Wools Farm in Stockton, NJ today - what a great experience! WoodsEdge Wools Farm has one of the largest herds of suri llamas in the world and were also the first alpaca breeding farm in New Jersey. The kids loved seeing and feeding the animals. The farm also has yaks, (which they get from a farm in Montana) and they sell yak steaks and patties as well as beef - (we got a couple of the yak steaks which Joe will sample tomorrow). Here's a recipe to try: Yak Steak with Honey Dijon Marinade. Owner Linda Walker was so helpful and personable. Her excellent farm store (open 10-4 on the weekends) has wool items such as sweaters, mittens, hats, scarves, etc, as well as local beeswax and honey products. We bought some "tiger-themed" mittens for Patrick and honey candles and soap for Cate. We first heard of this awesome place at our weekly Lower Makefield Farmer's Market here in Yardley. They are there every other week - definitely worth checking out!
So much of our history can be learned through food!
