This Week ‘Round The Farm
British Whites must have the stain resistance gene 🥼.
Looks like we’ll be adding pasture raised chicken to next year’s offerings 🥳!!!
When the wee-bitty kitten that showed up on the porch matches your decor, you keep it. Right?

Beef and Pork are in Stock!
Beef and pork are back in stock! We’re still working through the inventory and adding more over the next few days. Expect to see steaks, roasts, chops, bacon, sausage, and many of the staples you know and love.
We are essentially maintaining inventory on two websites at present (Ours and Charlottesville City Market To-Go). If we’re sold out at one place, check the other or just shoot us an email with what you’re looking for and we’ll do our best to make it happen.
We’ve also secured a number of dates for next year and significantly upped our number of cattle and pigs going in. Also, we’re actively looking for cancellations to get more in this year. If you need beef, pork, or eggs, we want to make sure you have a place to get it!
Real Pasture Raised Eggs!
What’s the difference between free range and pasture raised? Should I buy organic, NON-gmo, or cage free? Why are your eggs so good!? As members of the American Pastured Poultry Producers Association (say that 5 times fast) or APPPA, we believe chickens should be raised on pasture.
Diet and sunlight are the main ingredients in the eggs our hens lay, and those ingredients are only found when chickens are out on pasture. In addition to NON-gmo feed, they eat grass, seeds, insects, veggies, and many other goodies the pasture provides. This is possible because the hens are moved (shelter and all) constantly to new pasture. Moving them ensures they remain on grass and have access to natures bounty. This goes way beyond the “free range” label because it leads to better overall health of the hen, builds pasture, and provides healthier, better tasting eggs!
Check out this 5 minute video as it sums up perfectly how our eggs differ from conventional store bought eggs and why pasture raised eggs are so delicious. Also, we have plenty of eggs in stock at the Longbottom Farm Online Store. Order online and pick up at a prearranged time that works for you.
Thanks for following us and allowing us to serve you! If you have questions or would like to share your thoughts, give us a shout! Stay healthy and safe!
With Our Appreciation,
Jason, Lexi, and Family
