What A Week

This week was a very busy week. It was week 13 of the vegetable CSA. We hauled cattle on both Tuesday and Wednesday to be processed. Wednesday evening I went and Listened to Joel Salatin speak at Albion College. I got to meet Joel and got a few questions answered, but wish I could have a day or two of his time. Then Saturday Alex and I attended the Eastern Market and on Sunday Holly and I attended and had a vendor table at the Tillers International Harvest Fest in Kalamazoo. Holly and I had a great time at Tillers today. It is a very neat place to visit.
Well, time to go get some rest and get ready for the upcoming week.

If you are planning on attending the Pumpkin Pick, please RSVP (517) 765-2268 with the number of children attending. The Pumpkin pick-Open house will be on October 10th. from 2 to 4 pm. Rain or Shine.

That Time Of Year

You would think that with the vegetable CSA winding down for the season it wouldn't be so busy, but that is not the case. This is week 13 for the vegetables and we are also sorting and shipping cattle. This week we are sending the first group of cattle that are ready to be processed. So many of you are getting calls from me with cutting order questions. The next groups of cattle will be going in October. Fall is in the air. Time to prepare for winter.

This week we plan on being at the Eastern Market on Saturday and on Sunday we will be in Scotts Michigan, at the Tillers International Fall Harvest Fest.

See you soon,

Processing Time.

After weeks of browsing pasture and growing to size, it was time for another batch of meat chickens to be processed and they are now ready for purchase. Chickens, as well as other meat products are available on Wednesday evenings during the CSA pick up from 5-5:30 pm. You can also call the farm at (517) 765-2268 for pick up at your convenience.

Home Grown Chicken.

Rest assured that chickens from Hiday Farm have led a very different life than their factory farmed counterparts. Free to stroll about in the tall grass, they spend their days catching bugs, wandering the pasture, and stretching out in the sun. Breathing in fresh air with plenty of room to roam, a Hiday chicken is a healthy chicken. No antibiotics needed!

Wind, Wind and more Wind

Boy, is it windy out this evening. It was a very nice day for pick-up. It is week 12 of the vegetable CSA. For many of you who are purchasing beef you will be getting a call soon. Many of the beeves are ready to go and are booked for the processor.

This Saturday we will be at the Farmers Market in Texas Twp. Our goal is to be up in Detroit on the 18th. and on the 19th we will have a booth at the Tillers Harvest Fest, located in Scotts, Mi.(Not sure if we will have product or just an information booth at Tillers) At Texas Twp. we will have Beef, Chicken and a limited amount of Pork.

Hope to see you at one of these events.
