Greens and Flying Things

If you ever wondered if chickens can fly, the answer is yes. In fact, chickens flying over their fence was an all too common sight up here on the hill until we realized we were using the wrong  (shorter) fence. Apparently 6″ is all the difference in the world as the taller fence has fortunately stopped their escapes and we can go on to things more important than chasing chickens. Like collecting eggs!!

And harvesting greens! There isn’t enough for me to make available on the website but there’s some incredible looking lettuce, tatsoi, bok choi, and maybe even some baby kale out there just waiting to be harvested. There are plenty of eggs, so you can order them here, but the greens will be a special treat available for purchase on site for those coming up for cheese, chocolates, or meat. As always, the cheese, eggs and chocolates can be ordered directly through our website, but to order meat check out the meat link above and email Jeff at info@shortcreeknh.com with your orders.

Pickup Procedures:
Put your orders in online before 8am Monday. We’ll have your order available for you to pick-up from 4-7pm Monday right on the farm at 64 Potter Hill Rd in Grafton. Pickups are in the long white garage on the left across from the big red barn at the crest of the hill.
