Howdy from the farm,

Fall is in the air. Harvest has started. Days are getting shorter (daylight I know). Trees are changing colors. And the turkeys are growing fast, every night Cherie tucks them in (rounds up the ones outside and shuts the door to their barn) sometime with help from Elijah or I.

Here are some pictures and I got a video on the Meadow Haven Facebook page.

The pasture is sparse as we have less than one inch of rain the last 60 days.

Orders for turkeys and monthly orders can be placed at meadowhavenfarm.com

Beef roasts are on sale for $7.50 per pound regularly $9.

Some pork items may be limited this month we will have good supply next month.

Orders above $75 dollars get a free stewing hen. I know i sound like a broken record but you need this hen to make the best stock. To cook, simmer for 24 hours on the stove or in the crock pot on low. Add salt, garlic, and onion, other vegetable to your taste. Store in the fridge or reduce and freeze in an ice cube tray. It seems like a lot of work but when someone is coming down with something good stock can help the body fight off an illness more quickly. We also have beef bones too for another great stock.

As the growing season comes to an end it is always a little sad for me. One thing that helps is that when we harvest if there is time and the rotation allows it we are replanting the field shortly after the harvest is complete in a field.

Thank you for supporting our farm!

Jeremy, Cherie and the rest of MHF
