This Week ‘Round The Farm
A little different setup for our first market of the season, but sometimes different is good.👍
Our new bookkeeper. What she lacks in experience, she makes up for in enthusiasm. 😁
Pig wrangling day! We all needed a nap after those festivities 😅.
Wart would like us to know that we are late with his treats 🐖.

Charlottesville City Market To-Go
So we are at the Charlottesville City Market this year. While most farmers markets are closed, Charlottesville City Market has come up with a great way to get locally-produced food to those in our area. It’s a drive-thru called City Market T0-G0. All you have do is pre-order online via the City Market T0-G0 website. Choose your Saturday time slot. Then drive through and pick up your order. You can order from multiple vendors which means a great selection of many locally produced products (meat, eggs, honey, baked goods, coffee, etc.
You pull up, drive around a large horseshoe and stop at your vendors to pick up your products. You keep your trunk open and the vendor will put your product in the trunk, no need to get out of the car. When you exit, your trunk and area is wiped down & sanitized, then you’re on your way with a variety of locally-produced food.
Just go to Charlottesville City Market To-Go and check it out. Thanks to all of you who have come out and supported us and other local neighbors during this time.
So you’ve probably noticed a lot of little blue sold out signs on our website. The demand for locally raised food has skyrocketed so we’re working hard increase inventory and make sure we have what you need.
1. Our beef should be fully restocked next week!
2. We have brought some extra pigs on farm to try and make up our pork shortfall. Unfortunately, we’re still a couple months out on those being ready but increasing inventory in an effort to ensure items are in stock.
3. Eggs are flying out the door faster than ever but we’re looking into increasing our flock size to keep up with that demand.
4. Pastured poultry is something we’ve been wanting to add as a new product, but have had trouble sourcing chicks due to the demand the hatcheries are seeing. At this point it’s a matter of when, not if and keep you updated as this progresses.
So that’s what’s going on around the farm right now. Thanks to all of you for your support and for choosing locally-produced food for you and your family. It’s been really great seeing communities come together and support one another. Hopefully after this pandemic is over, spending more time with those we love and turning to our neighbors when in need become a part of the new post-pandemic norm.
