Happy Summer!

Bruce and I have been hard at work and all is well on the farm. The first batch of meat chickens arrived two weeks ago and are doing well. Raspberries are super healthy and we’re looking forward to a nice crop.  Christmas trees are sprouting out beautiful new growth. Blueberries are going to make it this year, hopefully! Ponies are doing well and will start their training soon. We’re sure that will go smoothly! ha ha

Meat chickens will be available for purchase around July 25th. Local organic strawberry jam and our own organically raised raspberry jam will be available soon. We’ll also be offering organic frozen berry pops.

We look forward to seeing you on the farm this summer!

Cheers,
Sally & Bruce :)

Jail Break

Watching “The Voice” and what to our wondering eyes should appear, two deer, no wait, it’s Cinnamon & Sugar Bear foot loose and fancy free. As they ran across the field Bruce gave a whistle, they returned to their pen as fast as a missile – well, not quite, but for carrots and peppermints they returned pretty quickly. Thank goodness!!

Photos updated – Recipe added

Check out the new photos under the pages of Christmas Photos and Farm Photos! The good news is that we were super busy this Christmas, the bad news is that we didn’t get the chance to take as many photos. Thanks to everyone who took the time to pose for our photo blog. Let me know if you’d like a copy by email.

Under Farm Photos we have a few shots from the In Good Taste foodie event held on January 24th in Saint Albans. We had a great time and want to thank everyone who stopped by our booth.

Under Recipes I’ve added a fabulous roast chicken recipe. One organically raised 4-5 pound chicken from our farm will provide a great meal for two and a big pot of homemade soup with the leftover chicken.

Cheers!
Sally & Bruce :)

In Good Taste Event

WOW – what a night! We participated in the “In Good Taste” foodie event last night at Saint Albans City Hall. What a turnout, a huge success for a first-time event. Our taste tests were freshly cooked organically raised chicken, homemade chicken noodle vegetable soup, and a variety of jams and sauces. We had over 200 people visit our booth and sample our products. It was great to see so many folks who visited us at Christmas and meet many of our customers from the Fairfield Farmers Market On-line (FFMO).

The diversity of the vendors, the professionalism of the event organizers, and the beautiful set-up of the venue made for a very memorable evening. The localvore movement is alive and well in Franklin County. Thanks so much for all your support!

Cheers,
Sally & Bruce :)

Happy New Year 2014

We hope your New Year is off to a good start and that you faired well during the recent ice storm and frigid temps! brrrrrr  Fortunately, it looks like our trees faired pretty well and will recover nicely.

It was great to see so many returning customers and meet many new neighbors during our Christmas sales. Thanks for all your referrals and wonderful comments in our guest book. You made our season very memorable!  :)

We’re looking forward to a good year, not too wet, not too dry, not too hot, not too cold, you know, just right. That’s not too much to ask for, is it? :)

Check back soon – don’t be a stranger….

Cheers,
Sally & Bruce :)
