We are now registered with the NC Dept. of Agriculture as Meat Handlers. This is an important step for us, because it means that we can now sell inspected beef by the individual cut. We will have a price list soon and we will have meat ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas. All beef will be inspected and vacuum packed to preserve quality. We will still offer quarters, halves, and whole cows to those interested. We also have rabbits on hand which we will slaughter ourselves when ordered.

We are finishing up this year's corn crop. We had a good growing season and our corn turned out very well. We cut most of it for silage and saved some to pick as ear corn. The heirloom variety we planted- Boone County White- produced some very tall stalks and large, full ears. The tallest stalk we measured was 14'. We will soon be planting winter annuals and turnips for winter forage. Since last year we have begun raising hogs on a limited scale and have added rabbits to our livestock operation. Currently we only have enough hogs for our own consumption, but we hope to expand next year and offer pork for sale. Our cattle are coming along nicely and we should be ready to sell beef by late fall. If you are looking for layer pullets, live or dressed rabbits, or high-quality beef, please let us know.
