Life.  That’s what we’re about on this farm.  Part of our rebuilding process has been to seek ways to build into the lives of those around us.  Thus, we offer classes to help others raise their own food, provide healthful food for folks, and have sought ways to help a very needy population find ways to make their way in life.  Here’s a great article from The New American about that last effort:

‘Tis the season for shorts with muddy boots (that way your pants stay dry when you walk in puddles), pigs rototilling gardens, and broiler chicks.   Frank is showing off his skill at picking up chicks.

Despite it’s fickleness, March brings the promise of better things to come.  The chickens are inclined to believe March and start laying eggs with enthusiasm.

GMO free, cage free chicken eggs

 Jim's pile of clean eggs.

Jim is the guy who takes care of the laying hens.  The two turkeys in there are making it quite a learning experience, but Jim usually prevails.  Jim has also learned this winter how to fry an egg.  He’s very proud of this and makes himself an egg when he wants a snack.  However, Jim’s snacked on as many eggs as he wants and there are still a lot of them!  The chickens get GMO free feed and wander around their yard (and sometimes ours as well!) all day, which makes for a nutrient dense, tasty egg.  Jim would love to share with you! Call, e-mail, or just order them from our storefront today!

A Mangalitsa sow with her piglets.Spring Mangalitsa pig prices:

Weaned feeders (castrated males): $150

Weaned breeding stock, males and females: $500

Bred sows (exposed starting Feb. 24): $1000

DSC04451Butcher hogs: $4.00/lb. hanging weight, includes basic processing.  $0.75 extra per pound for bacon/ham.

 

 

Notes: 1) No weaned female will be considered a feeder.  Don’t ask.

2) No guarantees on the bred sows.  They will be with a proven boar for at least 45 days, but it’s nature and we can’t guarantee anything 100%.

3) Weaned pigs will be available starting April 15, but if you want breeding stock, contact us as soon as possible.

We have a date.

Actually several.

Dates for classes, that is.  We are still building the schedule, but you can check out what we have so far on the Anyone Can Farm page.
