We hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving! Christmas is just around the corner but by the looks of things here you’d wonder if it was springtime—babies are everywhere. We have an abundance of piglets, with more on the way and so far five lambs on the ground with another dozen or more expected soon. Animals are being shuffled around the farm into their winter quarters and everyone seems happy with their new digs.
Our hams are hanging in the smokehouse, so if you want one for Christmas or New Year’s email us and reserve one. We are not doing Paypal on hams like we did for turkeys, just a first come first serve via email. They will be available for pick-up at the Carborro Holiday Market on the 17th (there will not be a Christmas Eve market in Carrboro) or come to our Farm Store on the 22nd (or the 29th). Send us an email and we will hold one for you. The hams are 5-7lbs @ $9/lb. We will also be coming to Greensboro’s market on the 10th and the 17th of this month. And we’re planning on being at the Dec. 31 market in Carrboro.
Also it’s time to order 1/4 cow if you are interested, as we are about to take a break from beef for a while—our last five beeves (yes, that’s a word) are heading to Matkins as I write, so now’s the time to speak up if you want to stock up on some beef for the winter. As always we will have plenty of pork available in all your favorite cuts. We have prosciutto and sweet potato pate for those upcoming parties. We’re currently making guanciale, bacon, smoked hams. This week and next we will also have beautiful pure-bred ossabaw cuts (chops, shoulder pieces, racks, bellies, ribs).
Thanks and have wonderful holidays if we miss any of you in the next month
