Breakfasts on the Farm are always a blast! And this last one was no exception.

Primal Pastures puts on a Breakfast on the Farm every couple of months. It’s an awesome opportunity for like-minded folks to come together, watch animals graze, visit with one another, and enjoy a two-course meal cooked from delicious, locally sourced, real food (some of which is raised right on the farm where the breakfast takes place)!


Chef Jamie (my sister in-law) is the mastermind behind this whole event. I am always in awe of her natural ability to create gourmet food without even trying (I was definitely not blessed with those same talents). Before the breakfast, I managed to sneak in bites of some of the dishes she was preparing and they all sent my taste buds on a roller coaster of pleasure. Our guests were equally enthused.


Chef Jamie’s first dish was paleo pancakes served with bacon crumbles and sauteed bananas drizzled with maple syrup. They were unreal. After many attempts at shooting a good picture of them, I threw in the towel. None of them did the pancakes justice.

The second dish consisted of sweet potato & vegetable hash served under pastured beef chorizo topped with two farm-fresh eggs over medium. Also incredibly delicious!

We had about 16 guests in attendance at this breakfast — all wonderful people! Primal Pastures has the best customers in the world. We always have so much fun getting to know them better at this event. Among the many fun and interesting peeps on the guest list were Kim and Amanda, the women behind Paleo Schmaleo. These girls are awesome. And they have an equally awesome instagram account where they sift through (and try out) the best paleo recipes out there, making it easy for you to navigate through the surplus of paleo resources, blogs, and cookbooks.


After breakfast, we gave anyone who was interested a complimentary farm tour. They couldn’t wait to hit up our farm stand afterwards to take home some yummy pastured meats!


From the Primal Pastures family, a huge thank you to everyone who attended Breakfast on the Farm this past weekend. We had the best time meeting you all and hope to meet many more of you soon!

    I’ve recently moved back to Southern California from Oregon, where I had some wonderful sources of good healthy food. I’ve been searching for good sources of food here. I’m so glad to hear of your farm. I haven’t had the opportunity to enjoy your products yet. Your breakfast sounds like so much fun. I expect to participate one of these days. I’m intrigued by the idea of having chickens of my own. I’ve had friends who had chickens, but I’ve always been intimidated by the idea. Look forward to more of your info on how to do it myself. Thanks for the egg information. I’ve had my questions about the claims of healthy eggs from commercial growers and you have confirmed my concerns. I look forward to your weekly posts.

    • Bethany McDaniel says

      Bonnie, welcome back to So-Cal! Glad you found us and I look forward to hopefully meeting you at our next breakfast! Also glad the egg post helped. Stay tuned for info on how to raise chickens yourself!

    I finally had some time to explore your blog; I love it. Thanks so much for sharing your talents and creativity.

    On a side note: I went to Crossfit tonight and couldn’t help but think about you and Jeff. I miss you already! I hope you had safe travels today and can’t wait to see you again soon. We love you guys!

    • Bethany McDaniel says

      Tracy! I am just now seeing this! Thanks so much for checking out the blog! :)

      We miss you and all of our Chaparral friends so much and can’t wait to visit soon! Or vice versa :) Love you lots!
