Late Spring Farm News

Posted on Jun 9, 2013

It has been a little while since I’ve posted anything on the blog, but we are updating the Farm’s Facebook page fairly frequently, so please check there for new photos/news.

We have lots and lots and lots of pork in the freezers.  We had Marksbury Farm butcher 5 feeder hogs about a month ago- they averaged 330 pounds, so we have 4 freezers full of really, really good meat.  All cuts are still available- tenderloin, boneless chops, county style ribs, spare ribs, boston butt, ham steaks, bacon, smoked/cured ham, breakfast sausage, sweet Italian sausage, and bratwursts.  Please visit us at either the Danville or Springfield farmer’s markets on saturday mornings, or give me a call at (502) 331 1492  and stop by the farm if you would like to purchase some pork and see the farm.

We got the riverbottom planted with field corn and sorghum this week, so hopefully we’ll be able to grow at least some of our own animal feed this year and be able to make molasses this fall.

We are going to start having open farm days the first and third sundays of the month from noon until dark.  These will start in July, and right now we are planning on having a pottery making demonstration on 7/7/13 and then on 7/21 we will be demonstrating how to wash and card wool in preparation for spining or felting.

That’s all for now but please check the Facebook page for more frequent updates.
