We have a wildlife camera up on the farm, and we got this shot of a bobcat! I’ve lived here 12 years and have never seen one, but Shane has. I’m thinking this is what got my chickens though, and there have been someone’s dead chickens showing up around the property the last couple months.
I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until around 10 or 11am.
I have eggs again this week – organic fed, soy-free, free range, from Carlea Farm.
Collards, chard, red radishes, leeks, Covington and Beauregard sweet potatoes, hard red winter wheat, and I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts:
ribeye, NY strip, sirloin, flank, skirt, flap steak, flat iron, short ribs, philly steak, cube steak, stew beef, osso bucco, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, soup bones, hot dogs.
Bulk pricing on our beef: quarters, halves and wholes – $3.50 lb hang weight plus the cost of processing (.75/lb)
We are now also offering (almost) half-quarters – not quite 1/8 of a cow (60 lbs) for $460. This is a great savings over the regular price you pay per piece, but quarters, halves and wholes are still the best deal.
We also got a coon, a possum, a buck, a doe, a pretty gray cat, and our neighbor’s dog.
Ol’ possum is kind of a rough lookin feller. There were several of the doe. So pretty!
I had a lot of collards left over from last week’s market so I made Smoky Sweet Black-eyed Peas and Greens in the Instant Pot. Really, really good. Keeper. It’s so flavorful that I didn’t even use the hot sauce.
I’m still looking for someone to help me on the farm a few hours a week. Inquire within 🙂
See you tomorrow! Oh and I almost forgot, I won’t be at the market next week. I’m going to Virginia for the whole week, to be certified in Equine Sports Massage Therapy. And almost equally excited to have no chores for a week – Shane is REALLY not looking forward to taking those over while I’m gone.
