This week from the Countryside

Here’s some news from a few of the Countryside Initiative Farms:

Basket of Life Farm
We are doing a give-a way on a giant pumpkin on Facebook. Like the photo and you will be entered in a drawing for it on Friday, you would need to pick it up on our farm this weekend if you win, we will help you load. Also this weekend we will be having a “Pumpkin Blowout!” All pumpkins (except for three GIANT ones) will be $2-$5. So stop by the farm after market and get a few more pumpkins. (4965 Quick Rd, Peninsula.) When you are at the farm ask about our Fall CSA, we still have a couple spots, this share comes in three sizes and is a great deal

Brunty Farms
Turkeys are getting big!  We are still taking orders for our pasture raised holiday turkeys (Thanksgiving and Christmas).  We have anywhere from 8-25 lbs available and they are $4.00/lb. All of our poultry is processed right here at the farm, just before the holiday, ensuring the most fresh and most delicious turkey for your dinner! Order here:

In addition to holiday turkeys we will also have our hickory smoked, no nitrate added hams available.  We have halved (5-7 lbs) and whole (10-14 lbs) hams.  Order here:

Our retail area on the farm is open from 7a-8p Monday through Saturday and 11a-6p on Sunday.  We stock our pasture raised eggs, chicken and turkey, along with our pastured pork and lamb.  Stop out to the farm and say hello!

Stay tuned for updated 2013 CSA information coming next week!

One thought on “This week from the Countryside

  1. I hope you’re getting plenty of orders for Thanksgiving – I really support community-based living – am trying to do it myself as much as possible. So sustainable, more personal, means you interact with people in your area frequently rather than doing so with faceless organisations. Keep up the good work.
