Eggstravaganza! Sunday 4/30/17 12-5pm

There is a reason the Easter Bunny hides eggs…
Alright folks it has been a while since we have been flush with eggs. We started our layers on October 27th, 2016….yes, right before the winter to remember (or forget!). The chicks did well in the brooders, but it was out to pasture in late November. Surprisingly, all of our shelters lasted through the wind and snow. We were really buried out here- but the super-doops held up and the snow even created some insulation. The chicks did fine throughout the winter. Then came spring and they popped. As I write this I am so surprised how well things went. Anyway, the birds are now fully grown and for the most part done with the Rooster eggs. We were a little conservative starting in October- planning to be ready for the markets in June. Turns out, even with that winter, the birds came through well and are laying great.

So….how about a farm day before June?? Yep, if you would like eggs or sausage, bacon or any other pork product please come to our first Farm Day of 2017 this Sunday from noon to 5pm.

There is lots going on this time of year and some of you might be interested in walking around a bit. We put in a lot of berries this month and if you’re interested in seeing our irrigation system- come on out. If you would like to see the pigs that will be ready for June and July classes- come on out. If you are just looking for a Sunday drive – come on out!

Long term members might remember the Sunday Egg Drops at Drake Park- want to do those again? We are up for it, but we know it has been a while since we have had enough eggs to do this. Let us know if you’re interested in meeting us downtown again.

Happy Spring and we look forward to feeding you and your family again this year!

Pastured eggs have pasture under where they lay, sleep and forage.

Butcher Classes , Hog Shares, and Fresh Chicken- July 2016

Just a quick note that we will have a fresh chicken day on the farm this Sunday (7/24/16).  The store is updated so please reserve online or give us a call (54I-323-IO65) if you would like some chicken straight from the abattoir.
Alright, we have lots of hogs ready this time of year- so now is a good time to stock up on Vitamin P!  These are great looking hogs that are hanging around 225lbs each.  Some are ready right now and can be picked up from the butcher to cut up at home, have them cut it up for you….or…..join us at the farm for a butcher class where we teach/help you cut up your own hog just the way you like it!  There is lots more information on these classes HERE.

We have a fancy new brochure posted that has all our goodies listed.  We do try to accommodate special cuts; however, our standard fare is noted.  You might see that Thanksgiving turkeys are listed.  The poults are on site and we should post something in the store soon- we will let you know in an upcoming email.

That’s it for now- we really appreciate your support especially now that we are doing less farmers markets.  This email group is where the bulk of our sales now come from!!  Please help spread the word as we do some pretty unique things in Central Oregon that most folks have no idea about!
