The Plan

In General Farm News, Pigs on June 29, 2010 at 3:32 pm

You can catch us this week @:
Bernardston Farmers Market today, Conway Farmers Market tomorrow, and Northfield Farmers Market Thursday– all from 4-7.
Wednesday in Conway, this week I am fully intending to remember to bring fresh chicken eggs, and I might bring some duck eggs — great for baking!

Next week we will be fully restocked with pastured heritage breed pork chops, fresh arm steaks, country ribs, and other great cuts.

The Slowfood Ark of Taste has some very kind words to say about the taste and texture of pastured pork from the Red Wattle breed, and the Large Black breed. Well, the pork we’ll have available beginning this weekend, is from our Large Black Red Wattle crosses. I can’t wait!

We are also picking up some more poultry to put out on pasture this week.

The town road crew is dropping trees along our dirt road that runs alongside our pastures… I think that they are planning to pave it. All of the chainsaw, dumptruck and big vehicle noise is irritating, but they have taken great pains to try to NOT ground out our electric fence, so things are still amicable. I guess that change is inevitable, but I am not looking forward to pavement where dirt has always been sufficient.
