|August 2010: Farm news
Timothy rounding up our Jersey heifer “Flora Belle”, Lord willing she will be giving us milk and calves for 16 years.
We have a new breed of chicken we have raised! It’s call a “Freedom Ranger” they are so healthy and flavorful! It’s used in France and Europe as their gourmet “label rouge” breed. Their breasts don’t get quite as meaty as the traditional broiler we are still raising as well. We have a freezer full of both breeds. We are offering both breeds at $3.50 per pound so that you can give them a try, in the future the freedom rangers will be a bit higher to cover additional costs of raising them. The chickens run around 5 pounds each. We’re also happy to be able to offer plenty of chicken parts: breast, leg quarter, tender, wing, neck and back packs… order soon these usually go fast.
Raw Milk: We currently have shares available in our herd of Jersey cows which will enable you to enjoy fresh creamy milk each week. e-mail us for details and a copy of our contract.
Eggs: We are enlarging our flock of laying hens, but the young ones are not laying yet. So for now we only have eggs available to our herd share customers.
Thanksgiving Turkeys: We are taking reservations for our delicious Thanksgiving Turkeys, raised healthy and naturally right here on Our Father’s Farm pastures. A $20 deposit will reserve you your very own bird that we will raise, process and clean so it’s all ready for cooking on Thanksgiving day, or freezing for Christmas. firstname.lastname@example.org
Turkey Processing: Call or email us if you want to come out for turkey processing day. It’s a fun day full of hard work and a bit messy but it’s a great skill to learn how to process your own food and work hard as a family. Children under 13 need to come with a parent.
Delivery: We now provide delivery to Roanoke and Lynchburg once a week.
