Veggie alert! Along with our amazing farm meats and eggs, we will sell our veggies this year at the Hickory Market.
- Today- Downtown Hickory Farmers' Market, Wednesday 4/3, from 10 am til 3 pm.
- Saturday- Downtown Hickory Farmers' Market. Bluebird Farm will be at the Hickory Market every Saturday this year. (Look for William) Join us this Saturday April 6th from 8 am til 1pm.
The sun should be shining bright, and it won't be too cold, so come and see me at market!
Pastured Pork- We'll have our full offering of delicious pastured pork- our hogs are fed certified organic grains
thick bone-in pork chops, country sausage, whole tenderloin, boneless ham roast, bone-in shoulder roasts, spare ribs, country backbones, spicy chorizo sausage, bratwurst, Italian sausage, and more!
Eggs- The hens are starting to lay more eggs, so get a dozen or two.
Raised outdoors in the sunshine! laying hens fed non-medicated, conventional grains, not organic grains (ask me at market about the switch back to conventional grains for the laying hens )
Vegetables- We'll have curly kale and collards from our winter garden. This may be the only week that we'll have kale and collards, so get a little extra. The kale keeps well shut up tight in a plastic bag in your refrigerator's produce drawer. Our vegetables are grown with organic methods- no synthetic chemicals (no synthetic pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers, fungicides)
