Look at that FACE! Gah. Smooch smooch smooch!!

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

savoy cabbage, hibiscus roselles for tea, sweet potatoes, eggplant, peppers, winter wheat.

I’ll have our 100% grass fed & grass finished, Animal Welfare Approved Angus beef in these cuts:

NY strip, osso bucco, short ribs (Braised Short Ribs with Cheesy Grits, anyone??), stew beef, philly steak, cube steak, brisket, sirloin tip roast, eye of round roast, boneless chuck roast, liver, and hot dogs made from our 100% grass fed Angus beef, no added nitrates or nitrites.

Ground beef special – Buy 5, Get 1 free.

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’ll be all stocked up on beef cuts for the market next week.

We had our first ever twins today. They’re hard to see in the photo, so small! The mom left with the one baby standing in front of her and the one lying down didn’t go, and she didn’t come back for him. He was weak and Shane didn’t think he had nursed, and the buzzards were circling so Shane called our neighbor to see if she wanted a bottle calf to raise. Thank goodness she did, and has given Shane an update that he drank 3 pints of colostrum so that’s great news. She has another calf that she raised from a bottle.

This week my sister came and helped me transplant 6 flats of green onions and leeks in the hoop so we’ll see how they fare. That’s the only news on the vegetable front.

I gave Solomon a bath this week and took some pics while I was waiting for him to dry.  The sunset made a cool effect! Just highlighting how special he is <3

His color is called flea-bitten gray because of the speckling. When he wants a treat he whacks you in the face with his nose…my botched attempt at teaching him to give kisses.

See you tomorrow!
