Okay, the pork scheduling has been a little crazy due to demand and getting set up with a steady piglet supplier and it is done....yeah!! Moonstruck Farms will be offering pork sides for September/October 2012 and roasting pigs (for those big summer parties) for Summer 2012. The deadline for these pork orders is April 6, 2012. for more details please email me. Next batch of pork will be February 2013.
Tony talked me into one more head of beef and so I have two sides available and they are grass/grain fed at this time, but if both sides sell for grass fed only I will convert it to grass only. Beef will be an approximately one to one and half year cycle depending on their weight gain. If they are ready by next Spring than another batch will come in, but if they are not then I will have to wait for Fall calves....circle of life on the range :) Now I just need to get my hands on the ultrasound equipment they are using for grading the beef....this is how they confirm grass fed beef is at choice grade, but then again I have Eddie and I think he is better than the ultrasound after 40+ years in the business...he has never steered me wrong and my husband has the pig measuring down and he has been within 5 lbs. every time!!
On the lamb front...one share left and no more until August 2012.
The first batch of chicken is sold out for July 2012, but we will do 50 each in August, September and October; 20 Summer turkeys and 50 Thanksgiving turkeys...sorry have to start out slow :) By the way if anyone has a deal on cargo containers I need a few, but the budget is tight so it has to be a great deal!! My husband is kicking me out of the garage he says I am taking it over!! Hehehhe....he's right!! Moonstruck signing out...alias the "garage taker"!!
