Know your farmer - know your food
JANUARY ON THE FARM
January has been one of the craziest months I’ve ever seen. For starters, the weather is more representative of May than January. Our lawn is green, early season weeds are growing, and some trees have begun to have small buds on them. We’ve had more rain than normal which has caused us some issues in the hog lots, around our compost pile, and in some of the heavier used places in our pastures like around the hay rings. The weather issues, delivery schedule changes, and a host of other last minute schedule changes or people being out sick, has prevented us from starting our big winter project and has had us running from one task to another. Last week Jesse and I put up a string outline of 2 pens but haven’t gotten the time to set the first post. And lastly, all of the work associated with ending a year, getting ready for tax season, and the other stuff we all hate doing has taken up its share of time. We’ll be glad to get all of this behind us and get back to a normal routine.

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.
Annie, Marc, Amy, and Jesse
