July/August 2015 Farm Specials

Farm News:  The rabbits are proving how prolific they are as we have processed almost 100 rabbits over the last month.  If you have never eaten rabbit, it is a very tender and lean meat.  You can substitute rabbit in almost any recipe that calls for chicken.  The only thing is that because there is no skin on the packaged rabbits, if you are going to grill, you should either marinate and grill on indirect heat or wrap in bacon to add fat.  We have also been processing chickens every week, and the Contentnea Reds are finishing with a 3.50 to 4 lb carcass, perfect for the grill or smoker or cutting up to fry.  It is time for the Thanksgiving turkey poults to arrive and we will start taking reservations.  We just had 21 new baby pigs born last week with more on the way.  The grass is holding up pretty well considering how dry this season has been.  We had a good shower come through today and we are praying for regular rainfall as we desperately need to get some hay put up for winter.  Finally, we have a big announcement coming and we are going to play a little guessing game with it.  If you the first to guess correctly, then you can win a prize.  So, stay tuned to our Facebook page for details!
