The best tasting
* Eggs- Large--$4.00 dz Small/Medium--$3.00 dz
* Berkshire Pork - Pork chops,Boston Butt Roast, Ribs, Hams, Bratwurst, Polish Sausage links, Breakfast & Italian Sausage
This year we are looking to offer a verity of garden vegetables, eggs, pork, vegetable and flower plants, hanging baskets, broiler chickens, turkeys, cut flowers & crafts
February has much for us to in this cold month and with Bobby having knee surgery this month we are pushed to get it done before then. The Greenhouse is almost completed which means this year the garden can get a much earlier start. So much will be offered with a number of potted plants that will be started this month such as:
Vegetables plants: banana peppers green peppers jalapeno peppers tappy’s tomato mortgage lifter tomato amish paste tomato eggplant
Herb plants: rosemary oregano basil spearmint sage marjoram parsley chives dill cilantro thyme
Flower plants: Some as transplants, some as hanging baskets or both
marigold petunia bachelor’s button black-eyed susan vine pansies cockscomb
We will also be planning for our garden which will consist of chemical free all-natural heritage vegetables such as:
cucumbers squash zucchini banana, green, jalapeno and pimento peppers green beans
tomatoes eggplant cantaloupe watermelon pumpkin broccoli potatoes
This month we also need to build a chicken roost on the hay wagon that will house at least 100 broiler chickens that will be pastured raised and rotated to new areas daily. Following a few days behind the cows will help keep the flies and other pests in control that can bring disease and discomfort to our Galloway cattle.
By the middle of this month Orchard and Red Clover seed should be sown in the pastures. We also have pig shelters that needs to be built next to the pond and the egg layers need their yard seeded.
As you can see MUCH to do!! With the help of family and friends, which we are so grateful for,
we’ll have a shot at this long list of projects for the month.
We are looking to join a Farmer’s Market in the Louisville area this year along with possibly adding free delivery a couple times a week
Thanks for your support!
Hope to hear from you soon!!
