Please Call Ahead

In Pigs on June 24, 2010 at 6:11 pm

Dear Valued Customers:
Please remember that as much as we love to meet you and allow you to purchase our hand-rasied, pastured heritage products, we kindly ask that you phone us first to ensure that we will be able to assist with filling your order. We are not currently set up as a self-serve farmstand, and our products are often a chore to find in the freezers.  That is why we kindly ask that you place that telephone call before making the scenic drive out Route 2 West to Shelburne. Thank you for your understanding.

In the next week or two, we will be adding a new cut of heritage breed pastured pork to our product lineup: shoulder steak. We have not ever offered this cut before.  In the past we have either had whole shoulder (very unwieldy) or ground into ground pork. For a Shoulder Steak, here are two suggestions, you decide: Barbequed or Hawaiian preparation?  Mmmm. Yummy!

Goin’ to Gill? Today!

Today, just an hour or so from now, Myles will represent our far, in the center of Gill, at a Farmer’s Market sponsored by the Gill Agricultural Commission.  It runs from 10-1 p.m., just across the road from The Gill Tavern.

It is also the Friends of Gill Picnic.  Everyone is invited to participate in the fun, and the annual picnic, hosted by the Friends of Gill.  Technically, this event is going on at the Town Common on

‘Tis the season for Strawberries!  The Friends will be serving strawberry shortcakes, and the Gill Fire Department will be at the grill! The Library and Historical Commission will also have activities.  Plus, new this year, will be a Farmers Market organized by Gill’s Agricultural Commission.

Our little farm will be there with hamburger patties, already formed and frozen, ready for you to take home and use later this summer – a package of four, 4oz. burgers, (a one pound package in total) is $5.50.  There is also Maple Syrup Cured, Hickory Smoked Thick Cut bacon from our pastured heritage breed pigs available, and it is great in BLTS!  Grassfed ground beef, breakfast sausage, hot Italian sausage… and so much more.  Just look for the Wells Tavern Farm Sign under the tan canopy on the Common in Gill.
