APRIL 4 NEWSLETTER
It seems like every time we write, we talk about the weather. Now we can ride the spring wave. 9 beautiful young pigs made a dash to West Virginia this week to become breeding stock for Chuck Talbott and Nadine Perry of Black Oak Holler Farm. Going up and over those West Virginia mountains we really felt winter was finally over even though the barley was only an inch high.
Tomorrow we are at Carrboro Farmers’ Market for the first 7am market of the season. I guess it’s time to get back to work. Speaking of work, it still looks like a war zone out here after all the ice storms. We’ll spend the weekend making burn piles. We’re taking the property off the market for this cleanup, but it’ll go back on in May when everything is green and cleared. Please spread the word – would love to have a farmer on the property. Cane Creek Farm is actively looking for another property closer to Chapel Hill.
This week at market we have:
- eggs and eggs and eggs
- beets, radishes, carrots, and spinach
- fresh pork cut this morning; chops, sausage, prosciutto
- ground beef
Next Wednesday is the first Wednesday market of the season. It’s my favorite market and I hope you’ll come out and help us kick off the spring. We are excited to have bacon and other smoked products available then. We should have goat for Easter.
