After last night’s tremendous rainstorm, we are busy trying to tape the leaves back on the trees here for Eliza Sydnor’s wedding this Saturday. This shindig will be taking the place of our “final banquet” this year, so if you’ve been a regular you can try crashing—hopefully Doc won’t mind. Kidding.
Besides the hubbub of the wedding, and aside from the usual hectic happenings, there is the excitement of baby animals—lambs and calves arriving daily, pigs expected next month. Our downsized staff is settling in to new roles and we are lean and mean for the coming winter.
Which brings us to the next and most important topic: SALE! Thanks to the huge success and appreciation of our last sale we are doing it again, SATURDAY November 12th 12-5.
We are clearing out our freezer just in time for you to stock yours for the winter. Beef and pork will have minor and major markdowns, plus we will have chicken and prosciutto at regular prices. So, bring your coolers, bring your cameras, bring your friends and bring your money (we still don’t take credit cards—check and cash only!)
The farm looks great, our staff is sassy and there are awesome deals to be had. Come join us for refreshments 12-5 Saturday the 12th of November at the Farm Store.
With the purchase of our new property (we bought the land up the drive from the house) comes the opportunity for another garden. We will be plowing and planting garlic and onions soon. And in the meantime have been picking, and will have on hand through the holiday, chard, collards, broccoli, potatoes and sweet potatoes.
As an alternative to turkey for Thanksgiving—which if you still want one we have a few, which you can order on our website—are fresh hams. We will have smoked hams later this year for Christmas. But, if you are looking for an alternative to, or supplemental protein for, your Thanksgiving crowd, think about a ham. Of course we’ll still have beef primals (if you want them bone-in, let us know) and pork export racks.
We hope to see everyone at our sale on Nov 12th. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving if we don’t see you. Enjoy the rest of Fall!
