This Week ‘Round The Farm
We have a particularly chatty bunch of oinkers this year 🐽.
We were shocked to see these adorable baby apples on our first year trees 🍏.
May is as overwhelmed by the number of babies as I am 🐣.
I’m pretty sure Noah built the ark in less time, but progress is progress, right?

Summer is in full swing and we’re still catching up on Spring projects. I think we all know the feeling. The juggling of events and projects that gets a little overwhelming at times. Amazing what warmer weather and a few extra hours of sunlight will do to the to-do list. But what doesn’t get done will still be there so it’s all good! A few updates / happenings on the farm.
Pastured Poultry: Our first group of chicks are almost ready to graduate to the chicken tractors (movable outdoor pens). Chicken tractors are those incomplete wooden structures seen above. It protects them from predators while allowing them to grow / thrive on grass. We’re anticipating offering Pastured Poultry the 2nd week of July. Whole birds and individual cuts. Stay tuned!
Eggs: We’ve recently had to increase our eggs price slightly. Our feed cost has risen 3 times over the past few months. We’re in the process of doubling our flock to improve efficiency and hopefully offset rising costs.
Beef: Cattle went to the processor last week so we should be fully restocked in the next 2-3 weeks. We’ve also secured dates through 2023 with our processor so hopefully you’ll see less sold out signs.
Pork: We’ll be taking pigs in two weeks and should be fully restocked by the end of the month. Bacon will finally be back!
Coffee: Good news and good news. We’ve added a decaf variety to the line up, for those that want to awaken your taste buds without staying awake. We’ve also DROPPED the price of our coffees. Buying more beans in bulk allows us to get a better price that we can pass on to you!
