Deliveries This Weekend

Posted 2/23/2017 5:19pm by Ryan Lacz & Liz Balchin.

Hi All,

I can't believe it's been 2 weeks already, but it's time for another round of deliveries from our web-store.  Get your orders in for eggs, pork, lamb, chicken & duck for delivery to Washington on Saturday, and to Chester on Sunday, all between 10A-Noon.

We've been super busy on the farm, with the recent crazy warming spell we've had- it was nearly 70 today.  I've (Ryan) been cutting maple trees getting ready for our venture into mushroom growing- shiitake & oyster.  Yum!  The only thing is that log-grown mushrooms, though they taste better, take time: we won't get our first harvest of oysters for 6-8 months, and shiitake take over a year for the fungus to colonize the logs.

We decided to get into mushrooms to diversify our farm a bit, and to use the logs we already thin from the woods for timber management, rather than simply burn or chip them.  We have a patch of tall pine trees which we weren't sure what else to do with, so we will use it as our mushroom growing area- dense shade, humidity, low wind.

We'll post more as we progress- and will certainly keep you up to date as Spring comes! Ducklings, lambs, chicks, piglets, goslings, bees...oh my.
