March is looking to be a busy month on the farm! The awesome turn out at the last farmer's market in Norfolk has allowed us to plan two more Spring markets. They will be held at Battell Chapel in Norfolk on Saturday, March 29 and Saturday, April 26 from 10:00 - 1:00. We will have plenty of beef and pork with us, and if you'd like to place an order ahead of time we can have it packaged and ready for you when you arrive. (We're now able to accept credit and debit cards, too.)
Also, we have a group of pigs scheduled for processing this month, so if anyone is interested in saving money with a bulk order, half or whole pig, please contact us for pricing.
I think I can speak for every last creature on the farm, John and myself included, when I say that we are more than ready for Spring. I'll be starting seeds for the garden this week - we can't wait to get back to our own supply of fresh herbs, fruits, vegetables and flowers.
Here's a quote from the self-proclaimed "lunatic famer" Joel Salatin that really speaks volumes about why we farm the way we do: "We don't need a law against McDonalds or a law against slaughterhouse abuse - we ask for too much salvation by legislation. All we need to do is empower individuals with the right philosophy and the right information to opt out en masse." We hope you, as the consumer, can make the choice to pay a little more for food that is raised humanely, naturally, and responsibly, with respect and love for our animals.
