Last November when I was trying to make a decision about the turkey we’d prepare for Thanksgiving, quite by accident, I saw a news segment about a local turkey farmer. In San Diego? I immediately researched to find that yes, we really did have someone who raised turkeys in Valley Center, just north of San Diego. Of course I jumped at the opportunity and ended up not only with an excellent organic turkey, but I was able to meet the farmer, Jack Ford of Taj Farms who delivered the bird to my kitchen. We had a great talk about how he started raising poultry and other animals on a farm that actually began as a hobby. But this isn’t about the turkey.
It’s about pork.
