Peace Out, 2018 & New Delivery Dates

Posted 1/3/2019 5:05pm by Ryan Lacz & Liz Balchin.


Happy New Year!

As we begin planning for the new year, we take the time to reflect on 2018, thinking of what worked well, what didn't, things we want to focus on.  I came up with some fun farm facts from 2018:

  • 1,585 dozen eggs packaged (that's 19,020 eggs!)
  • 56,400 pounds of chicken and pig feed gobbled up
  • 21,600 pounds of hay for the sheep this winter
  • New record for precipitation since record keeping began in 1895: we received 72.2", that's 2 FEET of extra precipitation this year, gross!
  • We've tripled the size of of egg laying flock last summer
  • Over 250 pounds of mushrooms harvested

As for 2019, we are planning on expanding our mushroom growing venture, will work on renovating our back 25 acres of pasture to get better grass and clover varieties, we're looking into growing cut flowers in our new greenhouse, and (as always) build more fencing so we can better utilize the land.  One of our main long term goals is to graze the sheep on our stockpiled pastures throughout the whole winter & become a hay-free farm!

I've set the delivery dates for a la carte orders for Chester (This coming Sunday, Jan 6th), South Orange, Madison, & Genesis Farm.  

We are no longer doing the indoor winter market at Stroudsburg, PA every week, but are looking into possibly once a month- more to follow on that.

We do have some sheep fleeces still available, both from long wool and short haired sheep.

 

Wishing you all a great 2019 & hope to see you soon!
