October Newsletter

It seems like summer has flown by! Even as the end of our first season draws to a close, fall is an exciting time here. Around the farm, the leaves are starting to turn, the mornings are chilly and we’re stacking hay in the barn for winter.

Our turkeys are getting bigger and bolder every day. They have tried to follow me into the house and enjoy accompanying us to the far fields as we rotate the sheep and goats to fresh pasture. Luckily, they come home every night for their dinner. I never knew turkeys would have so much personality and we're so glad we're raising them!

Order Your Thanksgiving Turkey!

Orders for our turkeys are starting to come in earnest! If you think you might want one of our organically fed,pasture raised turkeys for thanksgiving, order now!

Turkeys will be available for pick up the Tuesday before Thanksgiving at our farm in Dudley, MA and at Eastleigh farm in Framingham, MA.

New: Our CSA

We have partnered with Potter Hill Farm in Grafton, MA to provide a CSA for this fall and winter! We are offering two sizes: a full share and half share.

A sample half share includes:
4 lbs goat
4 lbs lamb
4 lbs chicken
6 lbs pork
5 lbs beef
1 dozen eggs with each pick up

Potter Hill Farm is providing their grass fed beef to round out our own offerings. The half share is $265 and the full share (twice what is listed above) is $525. We will be distributing our CSA once a month from November to March both on the farm in Dudley, MA and at Eastleigh Farm in Framingham, MA.

If you buy a CSA share, you receive $20 off of a turkey order!

Please note that shares are very, very limited. Sign up now if you're interested!

Recipe of the Month

We're highlighting a family favorite for October. Whenever I want a quick, classic roast chicken dish, I always turn to Roast Chicken with Root Vegetables. It's the perfect dinner to get you in the mood for fall and it couldn't be easier to throw together. Enjoy!

Looking Ahead to November

There are a couple exciting things happening on the farm in November. It's our very first turkey distribution and our first CSA distribution. We can't wait to see everyone there! Additionally, we will be moving our days at Eastleigh to every week (you read that right!) on Friday afternoon from 2-6:30. We'll be there the same day as Cape Anne's Fresh Catch, so come stock up on meat, eggs and fish!

Interested in even more pictures and updates from the farm? Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

We look forward to seeing all of you at our markets this month!
