We are excited that we have great farm partners to work with in order to supplement products we do not grow/raise on our farm. As we are approaching the Thanksgiving Holiday, we wanted to highlight the fact that we have Free-Range, Non-GMO/Soy Free fed Turkeys available from two of our farm partners. They range from 14-20 lbs. and we are very pleased with how they turned out. We have already picked ours out for our family meal next week. If you haven't yet orders yours we still have plenty. Also, we will be saving some for Christmas this year and will also have hams available (as we have already had questions on that).

The cold weather is rolling in quickly so we have been prepping for winter by chopping wood, sealing up our home and many other activities. We are back into the busy period with interns visiting so this is allowing us to complete activities much more quickly. We just had a couple from NY visiting for 2 weeks and have another young man coming from the North East to visit for 2+ weeks. We made some great progress on our Fall/Winter gardens and enjoyed getting to know them a bit more.

Price Foundation 6- Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund 7- Lindley Mills 8- Mock Orange Farms. Finally, we want to thank the bands who came out and played excellent bluegrass music: 1- Into The Fog 2- Evan Young 3- Backyard Blue Grass Boys 4- Boojum (featuring Nokosee Fields). We really enjoyed getting to spend time with everyone and show people around the farm. It is very encouraging to see the strong interest in people wanting to truly know where their food comes from and connect with their local farmers.
