I’ll be at the Charlotte Regional Farmers Market tomorrow til 1 with:

Cauliflower, green cabbage, a few tomatoes and cukes; nice big heads of fresh & uncured Susanville garlic – this is the last week I’ll have garlic straight out of the ground.  Susanville is a very flavorful variety that is also spicy.  Spring onion bunches; curly, rainbow and lacinato kale; sweet potatoes, wheat.

Fresh cut herbs: parsley, chives, sage, mint, basil, cutting celery, and purslane. I planted purslane this year even though it grows wild in my fields, because it’s an amazing plant! I juice it and put it in our smoothies. It has the highest omega 3 content of any land plant. Read about it here.

We have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts: ground, stew, philly steak, cube steak, ribeyes, NY Strip, filet, sirloin, flank, flat iron,  brisket, eye of round roasts, bone-in chuck roasts, boneless chuck roasts, sirloin tip roasts, short ribs, liver,  osso bucco, bags of soup bones, and all natural hot dogs and bologna made with 100% Angus beef with no added nitrates or nitrites.

Special on ground beef – Buy 5, get 1 free.

We’ll have beer brats, sliced corned beef and pastrami coming back soon!

We have bulk pricing on quarters, halves and wholes – $3.50 lb hang weight plus the cost of processing

Sweet potato slips are here. I really wish they were here about 3 weeks from now, when we didn’t just get 6 inches of rain. The best way I’ve found to hold them until I’m ready to plant is in these low tubs with potting mix. They’ll grow some roots, and when they’re set out they take off like crazy and shade out the weeds.

Ok they don’t really shade out the weeds.

That happened. That’s the okra patch. Not a good look.

We had our annual Animal Welfare Approved inspection this week. I think there are  around 200 points we have to meet. We were non-compliant on fecal sampling :) which has to be done yearly (I forgot) and it’s also time to get the pastures soil tested, I think that’s once every 3 years.  Gotta take some fresh poop to the lab! That’ll be Shane’s job. He could just scrape it off his hat. I don’t know how he gets so dirty.

See you tomorrow!
