March 2015 Farm Specials

Last week, Spring awoke and the farm is really "greening up" and things are getting busy.  New chicks are in the brooder, all the hens are moved out to the egg mobiles and are rotating through the paddocks behind the sheep and cows.  There are somewhere between 300 and 400 lambs running around behind their mothers in the pastures.  Calving should start any day now.  RP, Hardy and Daddy are working on the mower and rebuilding the hay baler that caught on fire in the middle of last summer.  It won't be long before it's time to start making hay again.  RR and RT are cleaning out all the bedding from the lambing barn and where the animals bedded down during the cold winter days and nights.  We are composting that now and we hope to start spreading it as fertilizer on the pastures in the next week or so.  Hardy is also working on the old tobacco barns that we repurposed to serve as our chick brooders.  He's roll coating the roofs and nailing down any loose tin.  We are thankful for Daylight Savings Time and as most farmers know, suppertime is when it gets dark.  It seems there is more work to be done than there are hours in the day.

We currently make a monthly home delivery to the Coast from Wilmington to Beaufort and Havelock.  Starting the middle of April, we will be at the Camp Lejeune Farmer's Market every Tuesday.  We are also planning on beginning home deliveries to the Outer Banks (Kill Devil Hills to Hatteras) once a month beginning in April.  Tell your friends and let us know if you would like a delivery to your home or business.
