November 2015 Farm Specials

We are now putting people on a waiting list for turkeys and turkey breasts.  There is just a few that are not spoken for.  Turkeys will be processed in 2.5 weeks and available for pickup or delivery as fresh turkeys beginning on the 21st.  We are also taking orders for Apple Wood Hams for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Let us know if you want to reserve one.  

The pastures aren't nearly as pretty as they were even a month ago.  It has frosted and we are working hard to get all the winter grazing planted.  Haying season is over.  Daylight Savings Time is over and it is getting colder.  The laying hens will be moving to their winter barns soon.  In these barns, they will have protection from the cold and supplemental light so that they will continue to lay eggs during the winter.  Barn doors are open during the day as long as weather permits so that the hens can range into the paddocks on the sides of the buildings.  We have about 20 new baby pigs and more baby rabbits than that.  Fall lambing has ended and some of the Spring calves will be weaned soon.  

People think that things slow down in the winter on the farm.  Not on ours.  There is always lots to be done.  Equipment that needs to be worked on, meat to be processed, orders to be filled and delivered, animals that need to be tended too and lots of hauling of hay and even water when the weather gets really bad.  Once you have spent 8 hours a day just hauling hay and water to animals in icy weather, snow and ice aren't nearly as appealing.  

Enough of the farm happenings, here are the November Farm Specials.
