Good morning everyone–
A quick but likely verbose note before heading into today’s market.
A teary-eyed (after she left…) and fond farewell yesterday to Keeley (below) as she left for her new home. Four other pups appear sold (two possibly leaving today and two over the next week) which leaves three looking for homes. All males. All awesome. I have a visitation/purchase slot today at 4pm if you are interested. I can also share Volhard Puppy Test scores with you if you are interested. Please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Morganic Farm with be closed tomorrow (Sunday) for a day at the coast with my mother and my kids before she heads back to Cleveland on Wednesday. I am open today though (after 2pm) and will be open on Monday for any and all needs.
I’ve got 40 dz chicken eggs and 2 dz duck eggs today. I’ve got a whopping two packages of bacon left until my half pig comes in likely later next week. I encourage folks to explore other parts of the animal. : D I’ve got plenty of chops, butts, brats, maple breakfast links, and more. Not to mention three tenderloins. I also have at least two pigs that are ready to go to the processor for anyone seeking wholes or halves.
The lamb is winding down until sometime in September but I still have ground chorizo lamb as well as hot Italian.
If anyone is in touch with, knows, or if you are one of the two Amish gentlemen who contacted me a week ago (one of you leaving a return number and one not) please note that I accidentally lost the one number and DO have puppies still available. Please contact me if you are still interested.
Things brewing at Morganic Farm:
- I am currently working on logistics and pricing to move all of my livestock over to organic feed. This would mean all existing animals would be transitionally organic (never fully) while all new livestock would be organic.
- I am also seeking organic certification for my pasture. It is in essence and practice but should soon have the certification.
- I continue to plan for having regular goat milk shares between now and next summer.
- To be clear: other than my stewing hens and roosters–and soon whole ducks–I do not have any pastured broilers nor turkeys for 2018. I do plan to have them next summer–both, throughout.
That’s all for now. Hope to see you later this morning at the Sara Hardy.
In the meantime, I invite you to let this be the song in your head and your heart as you start your day:
See you soon and thank you all for your support of local food!
