Markets This Week

Posted 6/29/2018 10:42am by Ryan Lacz & Liz Balchin.

Hi All-

Each season brings it's fair share of challenges- Winter is the cold & getting around in the ice and snow, Spring is the mud, Fall- well, Fall is pretty great! 

Summer- heat!  The hot weather, especially when there's little breeze, can be hard on the animals and the pastures.  Luckily, where we live, it typically cools off at night, so at least we get a little break.  The animals change their behavior to suit the hot days ahead- the sheep seek shade under trees or in their portable shade canopy, and sleep during the day, doing most of their grazing at night.  Pigs wallow in the mud holes we fill up a few times a day with a hose in the woods.  The chickens take it easy too- hang out in the shade & dig shallows holes in ground to bath in the cool earth.

The weekend markets are happing both this weekend and the next- High Bridge market, will be closed on this Wednesday, July 4th.

We are doing a special appearance at the Washington Market this coming Saturday, June 30th, 10am-2pm!  We hope to make it there once a month, last Saturday of each month.

Swing by Monroe Market on Saturday, 8am-Noon, or to Chester on Sunday, 10am-3pm, and stock up on those grill-ables for the holiday week, no need to fight the lines at the grocery store: what says 'Summer' more than going to the local farmer's market?  Fresh produce, cut flowers, meat, local beer & wine all in one stop!

 

 

 

Have a great 4th everyone!

Ryan & Liz
