Know your farmer - know your food
FEBRUARY ON THE FARM
We just can’t seem to get caught up around here this year. Just when you think you see the light at the end of the tunnel, you’re faced with several days of rain and get way behind again. Hogs enjoy a little rain and wallowing in some mud but even they are saying enough is enough. Our chickens are enjoying their time outdoors until the rain comes and sends them back inside. The rains also make it difficult keeping the shavings dry and the chicken houses clean. For the past several weeks we have spent 10 to 15 hours a week cleaning out chicken houses and putting in clean, dry, shavings. I know in a few months we will be complaining about how hot and dry it is and will be praying for some rain, but right now we need it to turn off a little while.Read More

Holiday Turkey Pre-Orders
Its time to order your Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys. This year we will raise all Bronze Broad Breasted turkeys. Bronze Broad Breasted turkeys are NOT a heritage breed but do have a richer flavor than the standard White Broad Breasted. Our turkeys are free-ranged and fed an all vegetable diet; we never use antibiotics or animal proteins. ; All processing is done at a USDA inspected, Certified Humane facility in Kingstree SC. All turkeys will be delivered frozen to insure safety and to meet the laws regarding selling or delivering meat at farmers markets. Prices for our turkeys under 12 lbs are $4.80 per lb, 12 lbs to 17 lbs are $4.40 per lb, and turkeys weighing 18 lbs and over are $4.25 per lb. To get on the list for either Thanksgiving or Christmas, simply fill out the order form and submit it through the website. To minimize confusion and missed orders, no orders will be accepted by phone or email.
All of our turkeys are sold on a first come, first serve basis. We are normally sold out by late July or early August at the latest.
Thanks for your support of our farm.
