APRIL ON THE FARM
This month’s newsletter is going to be a departure from what our normal newsletter talks about. This month we will concentrate on what changes are currently happening in the meat industry and how those changes are affecting all the smaller farms here in South Carolina including us.
In the past few weeks we have heard of major processing plants shutting down because several of their employees have tested positive for Covid-19. So far 2 beef processing plants in Pa, Cargil and JBS, have shut down and remain closed, Smithfield announced they are closing their Sioux Falls SD plant after almost 700 employees tested positive with 1 dying, and Tyson has announced it is closing a plant in Ga after employees starting testing positive and a couple died. The Smithfield Sioux Falls plant alone processes 4% to 5% (18 million meals a day) of the US pork requirement. We expect to continue hearing of processing plant closures in the upcoming weeks as the disease spreads.Read More

Holiday Turkey Pre-Orders
Its time to order your Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys. This year we will raise all Bronze Broad Breasted turkeys. Bronze Broad Breasted turkeys are NOT a heritage breed but do have a richer flavor than the standard White Broad Breasted. Our turkeys are free-ranged and fed an all vegetable diet; we never use antibiotics or animal proteins. ; All processing is done at a USDA inspected, Certified Humane facility in Kingstree SC. All turkeys will be delivered frozen to insure safety and to meet the laws regarding selling or delivering meat at farmers markets. Prices for our turkeys under 12 lbs are $4.80 per lb, 12 lbs to 17 lbs are $4.40 per lb, and turkeys weighing 18 lbs and over are $4.25 per lb. To get on the list for either Thanksgiving or Christmas, simply fill out the order form and submit it through the website. To minimize confusion and missed orders, no orders will be accepted by phone or email.
All of our turkeys are sold on a first come, first serve basis. We are normally sold out by late July or early August at the latest.
Thanks for your support of our farm.
