Farm Update –
Thankfully, Nate was mostly a non-event here at the farm. We had very little wind and only received an inch of rain (could have used more rain for our cool-season pastures).
Otherwise, it has been a very hectic week with much to do. I've continued planting cool season pastures and have another 35 acres planted and have about 60 acres left to plant.
Seems there have been a lot of things to break this week that had to be fixed before I could finish daily task! I think it would be hard to farm without
skills to fix stuff to include welding, plumbing, electrical, etc.
We picked up beef from Attala Tuesday and delivered Custom Beef Orders to customers. Additionally, we delivered fresh ground beef to a new restaurant customer in Flowood - name is Grant's Kitchen & Grill located behind Lowe's. He is scheduled to open next weekend so when in the area stop in and try his grassfed beef hamburger with meat supplied by Nature's Gourmet Farm. Not only will you have a nutritious & tasty burger but, you would be supporting our regenerative local farm and Mississippi's economy.
Our egg sales have really been doing good and it has been hard to keep up with demand. We had been looking for more hens and finally found some from an Amish family in MO. On top of processing broilers Friday, we also received delivery of 400 hens. As you might guess our older hens were not impressed with having "new" company to move into their space. The first couple of days have been a bit tense between US and THEM. However, they seem to be settling in a little better today.
Quote Worth Re-Quoting – "The effects of not cooking are similarly far reaching. Relying upon corporations to process our food means we consume large quantities of fat, sugar, and salt; disrupt an essential link to the natural world; and weaken our relationships with family and friends." Michael Pollan in his book titled COOKED
As always, thank you for supporting our regenerative, local farm.
