Here we are, done with March and by a good margin too! It was a busy month. We took delivery of the meat chicks, brooded them until they were out of their training pants, and then put them out on pasture to act like big chickens. Bugs beware! We also secured several pigs, which we will take delivery of in just a few days. Many little seeds have been started and some direct seeding has been done for our CSA. Let’s see, what else…. Oh yes, we’ve lost loads of sleep acting as surrogate parents to 8 bouncing (Yes, very much bouncing!) baby goats.
Our first batch of organic, pasture-raised meat chickens is sold out, but there’s a chance to get in on the second batch. We are going to push the butcher date back, as the hatcheries have had some issues with hatch rates and being oversold. If you are interested, please contact us for details. If you want to put deposit money down to save your place in line, please feel free to do so. Once we work out the dates we’ll get in touch to make sure the dates will still work for you. The chicken order form link is here:
She was pretty sure one of the chicks was cold; it was uncatchable however, so we know it was ok.
Turkeys will be getting finalized in the next few weeks, so there is still time to get in line for a Thanksgiving Turkey. They are raised on organic feed with safe access to pasture and sunshine 24/7. Want more info? Here’s the link!
Pigs are totally the new hot item. Well, specifically pork. We are growing out a pure Berkshire or two this year, as well as some crosses. The Berks come at a higher price, as they are a heritage breed with a slower growth rate. They are especially popular with folks who don’t just like food, but consider food an art form (aka: Foodies). We are still taking reservations for pigs. When you fill out the form, make sure to let us know if you want to plonk down a little more for the Berkshire, and we can hook you up. More info in the link!
