Sadly it seems our mini second summer ended and reality has set in, but I sure did enjoy and take full advantage of it while it lasted. We even went swimming in the neighbor’s pool, and Nora did some streaking to celebrate the end of 45’s presidency (or maybe it was just her being a high-on-life 2 year old). It felt weird cleaning up the garden wearing shorts and a tee, but it sure beats doing it in the bitter cold.
Continuing the bittersweet theme, the second and last round of cows went up north to harvest on Tuesday. We had the most well behaved and gentle cows this year – I may have shed a tear when they left the farm, but I’m proud to offer meat from cows that lived like and were treated like cows and not caged objects. We got the first round of beef back the next day and you can taste the difference. Once fully organized, we will have cuts from ground beef to roasts to steaks to stew for purchase. I did put a couple sampler packs up on the website, and have ground beef there as well. The meat is vacuum-sealed and frozen.
We still have loads of goodness coming out of the fields, and lots more in storage. Hope to see you Monday!
Veggie Ordering and Pickup Procedures: Put your veggie orders in online before 8pm Sunday. The website is a little buggy so if you don’t see a wide variety of items or you see items out of stock, try refreshing your browser. Also confirm on checkout that you have the correct number of each item in your cart. The two pickup windows are working well so far, so we’ll keep it going, but I’ll add at least a half hour (more if orders come in strong, so don’t be shy) to accommodate stocking up for your Thanksgiving meals. Choose your pickup window while checking out online: 12:30-2pm and 4-5pm Monday on the farm at 64 Potter Hill Rd in Grafton. Pickups are in the long white garage on the left across from the beat up tan and red barn at the crest of the hill.
