I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow until 1 pm with:
Red Thumb fingerling potatoes, cukes, a little broccoli, savoy and regular cabbage, squash, garlic, hard red winter wheat.
I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished black Angus beef in these cuts:
NY Strip steaks, sirloin steaks, flat iron, flap steak, philly steak, short ribs, cube steak, osso buccco, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, soup bones, hot dogs.
Ground beef special this weekend – Buy 5 lbs, get 1 lb free.
Bulk pricing on our beef: quarters, halves and wholes – $3.50 lb hang weight plus the cost of processing (.85/lb), and almost half-quarters – not quite 1/8 of a cow (60 lbs) for $466. This is a great savings over the regular price you pay per piece, but quarters, halves and wholes are still the best deal.
Looks like cauliflower might do something for next week. The rain has really helped the potato yields hopefully it will help the orchardgrass come back for another cutting although I haven’t heard him say. He’s been cutting triticale, and this year he’s baling the straw. Straw bales are made from the grain stalks left after farmers harvest their wheat, rye, triticale, etc. The amber waves of grain 🙂 Some years he puts the chopper on the combine and it chops the straw and throws it back on the field where it stays, and some years he bales it to sell, depending on if he has time and help. Right now he has a good helper so they’re getting after it.
I’ll be gone all week, to Oregon to visit my aunt, yay! So I’ve been super busy this week trying to get everything taken care of so it won’t die while I’m gone.
see you tomorrow 🙂
