With the last of our haying done for the season, we are finally starting to catch up with the long list of neglected things around the farm that need doing – like bush hogging, stacking firewood, and weeding the garden.
We welcomed four new Belties to the farm this month. We picked up 3 cows and a heifer from the Smith family in Thetford a few weeks ago. The three ladies are due to calve any day now, so maybe there will be some little belties by Thursday!
The turkeys are growing fast now! They’ve moved to a new pasture and are loving this warm weather. The birds will be processed at the end of October and will be frozen for until Thanksgiving. Reserve your turkey soon as we always sell out.
There should also be a few fall lambs and a litter of piglets born this week.
We’ll have fresh chickens is the share this month along with grass fed beef short ribs just back from the butcher. Try this yummy ragu recipes from Minimally Invasive – it’s even better as a left over!
See you are Thursday!
