The cows finished grazing the hillsides next to the driveway. They spent the weekend in the barn, eating soft beets and the last of the hay. They will now move across the flats to the hills by the other homestead. Even with the recent heat, the flats are still soaked, too wet for the cows to graze.
We now have pork to offer for sale. The pigs were raised out on pasture and in a heavily bed barn when the ground was saturated. They ate mostly leftover farm vegetables that were supplemented with organic grain. The cost is $10.50 a pound for every cut, from bacon and smoked ham to sausages and pork loin. We will have it available to purchase in the barn. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have.
We are going to offer vegetables for sale for the next two weeks. The stored vegetables are dwindling and the field crops are gone. We will still be open every Friday 2 pm to 5 pm with meat and onions for sale, as well as a simple craft or activity.
The heat is certainly making it appear that spring, or maybe even summer, is here. We feel the pressure to finish the construction projects and the office work in preparation for the growing season. Still, lets hope that there is more rain to come.
For this week, here is the list for sale:
- Purple Top Turnips
- Winter Squash
- Watermelon Radish
The lettuce and cabbage will be freshly harvested. The rest has been previously harvested and stored. We will also have potatoes available for free. When we are growing year round next year, we hope and will plan to be able to offer even more diversity.
We will be making magic wands.
