Turkeys and Pork Ready Soon

We're in the middle of the Fall season of our Farm Share/CSA.  This is week 27 out of 34 weeks total that we're sharing the garden harvest this year.  Thanks again to so many of you who have joined with us this year.

We'll have pasture raised, heritage breed pork and turkey available in November.  We're taking reservations now for the turkeys which will be ready the week before Thanksgiving.  

You can also reserve a half hog. If that's too much for your, we'll also have boxes available with a mix of the most popular cuts, bacon, and sausage.

Both the turkey and pork are limited in supply.  We offered turkeys two years ago.  Our efforts last year to hatch our own were unsuccessful.  This year we have a small flock of birds we bought as hatchlings that are now growing nicely.  But it's a small flock so let us know soon if you'd like to reserve one.

Likewise with the pigs - this is our first year to raise pork so we started with 3 pigs.  So don't wait too long if you are interested.  We plan to expand our pork next year.

See the articles below for more details on the pork and turkeys.  Also please visit the website and our Facebook page for more news and photos of the recent work on the farm.  Thanks so much!
