This evening we are coming off a very busy week here on the farm. Beth & I finished the ground beef about lunch Friday and then started packing our Jackson Metro customer orders - wrapping up about 8pm. And this will be the largest delivery ever to both Flowood and Madison.

Needless to say we are both very tired.

Next Thursday is Thanksgiving! Many will be traveling to enjoy the holiday with family & friends and will have plenty of delicious dishes to share.

For my family, we have so much to be thankful for. Faith in the Lord Jesus, my wife & family, our health, the ability to steward our farm land/animals, and the opportunity to be a blessing to so many customers that depend on healthy meats for their families.

However, for some folks Thanksgiving will be a difficult time. For those who have lost their spouse this past year or are struggling with health issues. Know that we will pray for God's compassion during this time.

In closing, Beth & I wish each of you a safe and Happy Thanksgiving holiday.

Farm Visitors

Since we started selling via our online store in 2016, the number of visitors to our farm increased. Then, building the on-farm USDA poultry plant in 2019 spurred a lot of interest from folks who were interested in raising pastured poultry and were looking for a way around the MS Department of Ag regulation limiting the number of chickens per farm to only 1,000 per year. Most of the folks visiting were potential customers looking for naturally raised meats to feed their families.

Farmer Musings!

Beth & I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving - and turkey if you purchased one our our pastured turkeys. For our family the turkey did not disappoint. I spatchcocked (removed the backbone) so the turkey would lay flat. Beth then brined it for a day before smoking. It turned out tasty and juicy. Before our Thanksgiving meal each of us shared something we were thankful for. Beth's sister Debra shared the following:

A Day Processing Ground Beef!

Overall rain this week on our farm was about ONE inch! Not a lot in the big scheme of things, but very appreciated. It was enough to make a difference for our winter grass as you can see from this picture. In some areas of other pastures it appears that the seedlings died after germinating back in October. An observation that the heavy dews was not enough to keep them alive.
