November 2012

October was a wonderful end to our market season! We loved being in Carlisle, Grafton and Milton every week meeting all of you. The end of October brought some frightening weather with Hurricane Sandy. Luckily, the farm and the animals were all OK. We had a broken window in the farm store which we're in the process of fixing and are extraordinarily lucky that was the only damage. Just in the last few days, we've been shoveling drifts of snow and driving through mud. It could just as easily be March as November around here!

For this month:
Turkeys still available!
Our new Eastleigh Farm schedule
Our new staff member, Ellen
Turkey Days! A schedule for picking up your Thanksgiving Turkey!

Holiday Turkeys Still Available!

We still have a couple turkeys available for Thanksgiving! They will be available at the farm in Dudley, MA and at Eastleigh Farm in Framingham, MA.

Great Whites: $5.50 /lb
Broad Breasted Bronze: $5.50 /lb
Sold out of Bourbon Reds!

Our turkeys are organically fed and raised on pasture which means they taste better and are much healthier for you and your family than a store bought turkey.

Order one today!

Turkeys will be available to pick up at Eastleigh Farm on Tuesday, November 20th from 3-7pm.

Turkeys will be available on the farm:
Sunday, November 18th (for frozen turkeys), 3-7pm
Monday, November 19th, 3-7pm
Tuesday, November 20th, 3-7pm
Wednesday, November 21, 1-4pm

Welcome, Ellen!

Since Eleanor is spending the bulk of her time at graduate school these next two years, we've hired Ellen to help out. She comes to us from Heather Ridge Farm in New York after graduating from Cornell University where she focused on sustainable agriculture. We (and Russell) couldn't be happier to have her here.

Looking Ahead to December

Who can believe December is right around the corner? Around the farm, the holiday season means lots of big dinners with friends and family. We're constantly cooking pork shoulders, roasting turkeys and making big batches of chicken soup.

We'll be at the Winter Market at Thayer Nursery in Milton, December 2nd. There will be lots of vendors selling crafts, food and treats, so look for us for your holiday dinners!

We will also be at the Carlisle Winter Market December 15 at the Unitarian Universalist Church at 27 School St, Carlisle, MA.

Please continue to support your local farms through the holidays! Even though the growing season is over, we have lots of great products still available!

Happy Thanksgiving!
Eleanor and Theo
