Catch Ya Next Week

In General Farm News on May 27, 2010 at 6:50 pm

Due to lack of electricity and a State of Emergency declaration in Shelburne,  we will not attend the Farmers Market today in Northfield, where I hear there is at least one part of town without power.

See you next week: Tuesday from 4-7 in Bernardston, Wednesday from 4-7 in Conway, and Thursday from 4-7 in Northfield.  Need meat before then? Please let us know.

Our generator is working overtime to keep our products safe and tasty. The people on our farm are working extra hard to keep the animals healthy.  We’ll be fine..

without electricity….

Small is Good. You Localvore, you.

Small is Good.

Many famous people have decided that statement matches their chosen style of living. Many non-famous people have decided that statement works well in certain areas of their life as well.

Think about it.

Now, combine that with eating locally.

Localvore. Small is good.

Now we’re talking my language.  Our farm is pitifully small, and very local. We limit ourselves and our production through conscious self-imposed restrictions on expansion.  Small is good.  It keeps us in touch with each individual beast and fowl on the farm.  We can better learn about and assist in the enjoyment of the life of each living thing. And we keep it local.

We feed corn to our pastured heritage breed pigs, but it comes from a couple of miles away in Northfield. We feed a balanced grain ration to our fowl and pigs, but it is from Vermont. Our slaughter facility is also a ma and pa sized, USDA inspected place that is Animal Welfare Approved, and is in Vermont.

We are coop members at the Farmers Exchange.  We keep it local.  Won’t you join us at the Farmers Market and stay local with us?  I can’t wait to see  you!

Remember: Eggs, Pork, Veal and both Grassfed ground Beef, and grain fed ground beef patties at the Northfield Farmers Market tomorrow from 4-7!
