Things have been pretty busy over here as usual at the farm. We managed to get through the Thanksgiving holiday without any problems and everyone is very happy with their turkeys. I have been receiving a steady flow of good comments coming back as I normally do.
We had a great Thanksgiving dinner with family and enjoyed a 16# pastured turkey.
Our customers had a great selection of turkeys to chose from. We had everything from a 12#-33# turkey available.
Last weekend, we loaded our first batch of pigs onto the trailer without any problems to take into the butcher and still have two more sets to go before mid December. Our customers are getting excited about receiving their pork shares this month. This weekend we will be loading another set of pigs on our trailer to take to the butcher Tuesday . Hopefully this will go well.
We also managed to round up one of our extra boars that we sold to a local farmer. He has been sold since late October but I have been to busy to get him. He was out on pasture running with the rest of the feeders. He also likes to jump fences so it was a chore to round him up onto the trailer.
I am trying to make some time in my busy schedule to make a quince jam from a recipe I found on line. I received a bag of pineapple quince from a local orchard we know and have yet to have time to make anything with them.
