Rendering fat is the process of melting animal fat and straining it to remove the
meat, veins, tissues and impurities that would make it go bad. The result of
properly rendered lard should be white, creamy shortening (a fat that is solid at
room temperature and liquid at warmer temperatures).

The byproduct of rendering is cracklings, the tissues removed from the fat and deep fried during
the rendering process.

This exact same method is used to render beef fat, sheep fat, goat fat, deer fat, bear fat, chicken fat or goose fat.

Their first tiny garden together started on a balcony in a city apartment 15 years ago and has grown along with their family to producing over 75% of their needs. Now on 40 acres in North Idaho, they raise all of their own meat, 90% of their dairy products and 75% of their fruit and veggies…all done naturally while being stewards of the land and caring for a family of 10! This passion for country living, good eating, and nurturing life has grown into a passion for sharing the journey and lessons learned with others. It is their desire to be a blessing and encouragement to others seeking the beauty and abundance of a healthy homesteading life!
