Farm Update 10-15-20

I just have a quick update for you all this week. As a reminder, the stand will be open Fri-Sun until Halloween weekend, with 11/1 being the last day of the season.

Beyond that, I will still have laying chickens until about the second or third week in December, so eggs will still be available by contacting me to set up a time to come by the farm.

Currently, I am still digging potatoes and also processing more broiler chickens. There will be about a dozen or so available this week, and they will be on the smaller side. I will also be processing broiler chickens for the following two weeks, with greater numbers of chickens being available at those times. For those who decided to place orders for the broiler chickens in December, I did receive enough advance orders and will be getting the chicks next week. They should be ready the second and third week of December, depending on how large you want them. Please get back in touch with me if you have specific requests.

There’s not a whole lot more exciting information to pass along at this time. The work is shifting to fall cleanup and prep for winter, and I’m setting up the maintenance and repair schedule now. The interesting thing that’ll be happening will be taking the tractor over to Oneonta for a somewhat major repair, which I unfortunately cannot do on the farm, though that won’t be until sometime after the stand closes.

I am doing my best to keep up with preserves, but there are still types that are running very low stock, or sizes that are sold out. I will continue to make them as I can for the next week or two. Preserves will also be available for purchase after the stand closes, just get in touch like for the eggs.

Can’t think of anything else for now. Hope you all have a great week and thanks again for your support of the farm.
