Only two markets left

I’m always amazed at how fast the summer goes by. It seems like the market just started, but now here we are with just two markets left. Next week we will update you on how we will be handling the winter market. It will be a bit different this year, and we are still working out the details. Stay tuned.

Things continue to move along on the Farm. Maple is getting used to her new home, and allowing us to add butter and cheese making to our regular routine. Eric and Seth covered the gardens tonight. They spent much of yesterday and this morning getting the greenhouse ready for the winter. Soon we will be taking in the older hens to be processed.Which means we will have stew hens and more feet! Many of you have questioned what to do with feet. Add them to the bones you will be using to make stock. I’m sure there are other things you can use the feet for, but that is really all we use them for around here.

Even as the market is coming to a close, we still have some amazing things for you all. This week we will have arugula, kale, collards, chard, onions, garlic, potatoes, peepers, eggplant, radishes, celery, tomatoes, eggs, chicken and chicken feet.

    Yeah, I feel pretty lucky. Eric makes a pretty great fresh cheese. We are figuring out the butter! Again, if you lived closer we would share!
