I thought I would share my reflections... From…
Thank you to everyone one for kicking off our farmer’s market experience. We are having an amazing time meeting everyone and providing the community with quality meat. We are excited to able to offer our products year round and continue to see our customers on a weekly basis throughout the fall and winter.
We have been selling a lot of meat at the markets and off the farm. Most of you will be happy to know that we are picking up a steer from the butcher and will have a full supply of beef for next Tuesday’s market at Fearington Village, September 14, 2010. We also have most cuts of pork available. If you would like to place an order before the markets contact Tucker at (919) 356-5330 or email us to ensure that you get the cuts and variety you are looking for.
We are so excited to be receiving all the brewer’s grain from Carolina Brewery to feed our pigs and other animals. Our pigs are happy and full on local grains and our steers are feed this delicious grain as they are in their finishing stage. We are working closely with Jon Conley and the rest of his brew crew to improve our farm while keeping the best interest of all the animals first.
We increased our flock size due to popular demand of Lilly Den customers for free range eggs. Currently we only have a small flock of laying chickens but we are hoping to have our additional 30 hens laying in the next 7 weeks.
If you are interested in receiving a weekly supply of a naturally raised meats throughout the fall, winter, and spring you should check out our CSA. We have three different size options to choice from hoping to meet everyone’s needs. We decided to add additional single, couple, and family shares to our CSA. Memberships are available for sign up on our website.
Don’t forget to sign up for your Thanksgiving Turkeys. Turkeys are limited and are on a first come first serve bases. If you have any questions about our CSA or reserving a thanksgiving turkey please email us or call Tucker at (919) 356-5330.
While you are on our website don’t forget to check out and respond to our blog entry. It talks about the process or humanly raising veal, what goes into raising veal, and why veal is so different then beef.
