Last Saturday Market of the Season in Hickory and Morganton


We will have broccoli at market tomorrow- just a smaller amount- as the plants wind down.
Beets!
Carrots!
Scallions!
Oh My! Beets, carrots, and scallions will be making their appearances at market tomorrow.  These carrots just glow orange and the beets just drip their deep magenta color.  The scallions smell so savory and fresh!


We still have tomatoes- we picked them before the freeze and we are saving them in a sheltered spot away from freezing temperatures!



Last few regular Farmers' Markets, but we have monthly orders all winter!


Morganton:

Tomorrow is the last Saturday market in Morganton.  See below for out monthly meat orders November-March.


Hickory:

One more Saturday market (tomorrow)  and one more Wednesday market.  We will be at a November mini market at Youssef 242 from 11-2 on Nov 6, 13, and 20th.

Monthly Winter Orders-

Remember, we have monthly orders for meat from November-March in Hickory and Morganton. We'll send out an email, and then you can order as little as 1 pound of sausage to as much as you need to stock up!  
Meat Availability: We'll have all types of pork through the winter, chicken until around Christmas, and beef until it all sells- (February or March?) We won't have lamb cuts through the winter.

Pastured Beef


Our steers are raised on grass pastures without medications.
Our animals are moved to fresh, healthy new pastures every week for the best growth from grass.   

We supplement the steers with small amounts of organic corn, alfalfa, and wheat to help supplement just the right amount of fat to ensure juicy beef.  We've partnered with our family friend, who is our neighbor and farming mentor to raise tender and lean beef on pasture.


Beef at Market!  Check out the market list below for some of the beef items we will have at market tomorrow.
