Yesterday was one of those days that you just don’t want to end – the warmer temperature, the gentle breeze and the sunshine! It’s hard not to soak in those first few days of feeling the warmth of the sun again. We found all kinds of reasons to work outside as much as we could – yard cleanup, stacking firewood, cleaning barns, and even a visit to the Lake Odessa Live Stock Auction! It was the perfect day to stand in the sun, bid on hay to refill our supply for the calves and then enjoy the best burger and fries at the auction lunch house. It’s one of our favorite family outings!
We aren’t so excited today looking down the barrel of the winter weather returning today but we’re taking the opportunity to have a “snow day” and slow it down around here. Just the minimal chores, staying close to the fire with a cup of coffee, binge watching cartoons and napping with the kids. It’s a rare moment for us to have a slow, family day and we are soaking in every moment of it.
We are also celebrating the launch of our new website! Thanks to the amazing work of our friends at Come Alive Creative, we have completely updated the site, and even added forms to make our ordering and communications more efficient. As any small business owner knows, your business can grow and evolve in such a short amount of time and keeping up with that change can be challenging. Our website is one way we try to progress with the ever-changing demands of our customers (& fans!)
If you are a current customer (of any product) and really love us, we are always looking for feedback and reviews. Its great to share them on Facebook and Local Harvest but you can also email them over to us to be featured on our website! If you weren’t completely satisfied as a customer we need to hear from you too – our goal is to always be improving and better serving you.
We are beginning our fourth season on this little piece of land we call a farm, and are happy to start the ordering cycle for our seasonal pastured broiler chickens, turkey and now rabbits! Our farm hands, Ethan & Elliott, provide us with much-needed help around the farm – from milking cows and doing chores if we need a night off, to helping with fencing projects and stacking hay bales. We love having these two involved in what we’re doing. For the 4H fair this year they decided to try raising some non-GMO meat rabbits! We are so excited to support them in this endeavor and will be offering them as part of our chicken pick-ups this summer.
If you’ve never tried rabbit, here’s your chance! Dan actually enjoys rabbit more than chicken for deep, moist flavor. You can cook them in any way that you can cook a chicken – from pot pies to the slow cooker and stews…you won’t be disappointed!
Head over to our Eggs & Meats on Pasture page for more information to fill out our order form for pastured chickens, rabbits, and holiday turkeys! You can also reserve your half or whole pig (ready in July) and check out our newly updated Raw Milk Herd Share page!
