A look back at 2015

Like many of you, with the new year just around the corner, we’re looking back at 2015 and reminding ourselves of all the excitement that this year brought. Through our website, blog, and social media channels we are fortunate to share with you recipe ideas, product news, updates from our retail partners, and news from the farm. As 2015 draws to a close, here’s a quick recap of our most popular posts across our various channels.

MOST POPULAR RECIPE IDEAS

These 112 ideas for light, healthy meals helped get the year off to a fresh start. Then came the Super Bowl recipes, and everyone was thinking wings, wings, wings. By spring, you were curious to know how to get 5 meals from 1 rotisserie chicken. Then in June, this basic frittata recipe had you ready to #getcracking. By back to school time, it was all about tips for packing healthy lunches. For Thanksgiving, this creamy leftover turkey soup caught your eye. And by the time the holidays rolled around, everyone wanted to know how to make great gravy.

NEWS FROM THE FARM

We took you on a video tour of the Ahrens Family Farm to show you how the Ahrens family raises organic chickens and grows organic crops for Yorkshire Valley Farms.

In February, we were proud to see organic chicken farmer Nick Ahrens profiled on Faces of Farming. And then in December, organic turkey farmer Tim deWit was featured in the Financial Post, talking about why growing organically is “…one of the best decisions we made.”
