Quick description:

For the kid in all of us. Spend a morning, day or weekend as a Farmer-in-Training. Your chance to assist the farmers with their daily work, learning how to care for the animals and plants on the farm. This could include learning the names of the animals, feeding and moving the animals to new pens, caring for crops, checking the compost, collecting and packaging eggs, harvesting vegetables, joining us at the farmers market and, of course, answering all of your (or your child’s) questions. Step beyond our barnyard and right into our farm operation. This package will be tailored to the experience level of each farmer-in-training and can be repeated for kids and adults to progress to more advanced levels where you get to take on more responsibility. (Custom half day, full day and weekend packages available; requires advanced reservations.)  Ages 6 and up.  Price depends on the package, length of time and number of people, but typically runs $200-$600.

    Thanksgiving Turkey

    $35.00

    We are offering Bourbon Red turkeys, fully processed and plucked.  Bourbon reds are an amazing tasting turkey that has been endorsed by Martha Stewart.  She said she won’t have anything else for Thanksgiving and that’s exactly what our customers say too.

     

    If you have never eaten a Heritage Turkey, now is a good opportunity to try one. Don’t be confused with “feed mill’ turkeys sold as a heritage turkeys..

    Properly raised Heritage Turkeys take 28 weeks to become a well proportioned and nutritious, table bird. Compared to an average of 16 weeks for the Broad Breasted Whites that dominate the stores, a properly balanced diet, is key to development. Our turkeys enjoy all the bugs and grasses they can find.

    For most people a turkey is a turkey, and a Heritage turkey is not really a specific breed, but is a term used from years ago, before the Broad Breasted Whites were developed for massive meat production. The large whites and bronze of today are never raised to maturity; never have a chance to range. Hence the meat texture tends to be very soft or even mushy; breast meat is usually so dry that most processing plants add a brine solution to give it a little more taste. Heritage Turkeys have a finer and a more dense meat, dark meat is actually reddish to maroon in color. The skin is thicker with a good chew. They are not inserted with a “brine solution to give them flavor”.
