Is it Fall already??? Based on the weather the last few days it sure feels like it! So with the onset of colder weather, shorter days and hibernation, our hens like many other farms start to take a break. That means fewer eggs but the same demand and sometimes more because everyone’s back yard flocks start to slow down or stop all together.
So with that as we do every year, we are adjusting the price of our eggs from $5 / dozen to $5.50 / dozen. This new pricing will be effective starting on November 1st. We would like to thank everyone who supports our farm and hope that you will continue!
Better late than never….I’m a little behind in posting the happenings here at the farm but I wanted to share some pictures of a recent home schooling group that we had tour the farm. Everyone had a great time and some even stayed behind to enjoy a picnic lunch in the barn!
Last weekend was the opening day of bow season for deer in most of the state and we wanted to let everyone know that we will be processing deer again this year! So tell all your hunting buddies to bring us their harvests and we’ll take care of them!!
Our prices will remain the same: $80 per deer for basic cuts; $6 / lb raw meat weight for Jerky; $5 / lb for summer sausage and $3 / lb for breakfast sausage
New this year!! We can now vacuum seal your meat…for $10 extra a deer, we will vacuum seal your cuts.
Folks, if you haven’t tried our chicken you don’t know what you’re missing!! These birds are raised outdoors, free range on lush grass getting bugs, grass, seeds, exercise and plenty of sunshine! Did you know….this is the same chicken that “Husk” restaurant serves!! Yes, we deliver fresh chicken to Husk restaurant every other week! So if it’s good enough for one of the top restaurants in Nashville…..
Did you know??? That we process all of our birds onsite in our state certified processing facility almost every week? So if you have special needs or want you’re birds cut up a specific way, we’ve got you covered. Just place your order and the special instructions and we can accommodate! Or just e-mail us your special requests! For example, we will cut up your bird for you for only $1 extra per bird!
Did you want parts?? Yep, we have lots of parts on hand right now…everything from Boneless breast, to thighs, legs and wings! Just click the “order now” or “shop now” link to place your order!
We wanted to let you know about some changes that we are making to our pork. Up to this point we have raised 5 to 8 pigs every 6 months and while this keeps the supply going for the entire year, it isn’t really efficient for us to raise pigs during the winter months. Yes, they get nuts and grubs because we run them through the woods, but they just don’t get the same nutrients as they do in the spring and summer months with lush grass, clover, roots and grubs. Plus we are able to supplement them with parts from our chicken processing operation which provides needed protein.
Therefore we have decided to raise pigs only once a year. We would get them in around March and start processing in September and on into late October, that means you will need to plan ahead for your pork needs.
We currently have 5 pigs that will be ready in September and 2 of those are already sold, that leaves just 3 pigs until September 2018, so if you’re interested in getting a 1/2 or whole pig, now is the time to act. Email me or order on our website to secure your pork. Once we are sold out, we will start a waiting list for September 2018 pig processing.
Also, we have been getting a lot of calls about Ham, we are sold out right now, but plan to have some in about 3 to 4 weeks. E-mail, text or message us if you want to be on our waiting list and approx how many pounds of ham you would like.
I don’t know why I waited so long to share this, but here is a short video that was made by our last “Work-Awayers” Rolf and Marcus from Denmark!! Rolf had the drone that captured the true essence of our farm. Thank you so much for taking the time and energy to shoot some amazing shots…..enjoy!
We started this journey in 2010 on 5 acres in Lebanon, Tennessee. Little did we know where we would be today. We have raised 6 children and we ate mostly organic, however, like a lot of families our meats were not. After watching “Food Inc.” we realized something had to change and our farm was born. We already had a small backyard laying flock but we soon added meat birds.
After years of being in corporate america I was ready for a drastic change and I just couldn’t get the image of Joel Salatin and the way he farmed out of my head. That was the way farming should be, common sense, giving back to the land, humanely raised animals and profitable! We were hooked and soon I quit my corporate job and we started searching for a larger piece of property. We finally found 117 acres in Watertown. Although it was a cattle farm, the land was far from fertile and lush with lots of briers, milk thistles and other nasty plants. Within a few short years we have healed a lot of the land and working to heal the rest.
We raise our animals humanely and we process all of our own animals in our state certified processing facility right on the farm! We are totally committed to providing you with healthy food and healing the land that we have been allowed to use.
