I hope our boys found the path that leads to spring…
It is hard to believe that we’re close to turning the page on February when you look out the window.
We’ve been busy enough around here, tending to the animals, planning for the upcoming season, cutting firewood over and over again like some sort of Groundhog Day exercise…
Like most seasons around here, work is everywhere you look, but some of it is easier to ignore under the snow.
We are continuing to expand our hog pastures in the new forested land that we purchased after my aunt passed away last winter. It has been really exciting to see the positive improvements that hogs can make in a woods, and we’ve been enjoying some fabulous pork!
Some of you have already purchased a ½ hog, and some are eagerly awaiting the smoked options next week—we are too!
For Sunday, 2/22, we plan to be at the winter market at Clark Montessori from 10am-1pm. We’ll have potatoes, squash, some sweet potatoes, our acorn-finished pork, a few dozen eggs, all manner of chicken options, ground turkey, turkey breast, and grassfed ground beef and steaks. If you are down to empty ice-cube trays in your freezer, come and see us! The slower-paced winter market is a great place to strike up a conversation with your farmer.
We are overjoyed by the support our farm receives from all of you, especially in the winter. If you would like any information on any of our CSA programs or farm practices, we’d love to tell you about them. Stay warm!
