Technically spring arrives this week, although you wouldn't know it by the amount of snow of the ground after the big storm last week. But, piglets are being born, our hay supply is getting low, and Gwen, the goddess of sheep shearing just came - so springtime weather can't be too far off.
I just got back a load of sheepskins from Pennsylvania and it is a gorgeous batch! These make a unique and useful baby shower present, a soft addition to an office chair, or a really nice dog bed. They are washable, last forever , and are easy to ship. Below are photos of a couple beauties, and I can email more photos if interested.
April is the start of the CSA spring quarter which runs through June. Sign up for a monthly selection of our 100 % grass fed beef, heritage breed pork, pastured chicken, and lamb (optional). The April share will have the option of a smoked ham or lamb roast for the Easter meal.
Visit Hogwash Farm at Flavors of the Valley on April 9 from 11am-3pm at Hartford High School gym. The local food tasting expo is always delicious and always fun. Hope to see you there!
