Our chickens for this season arrived early last week- a flock of 300 Rhode Island Reds born down in Virginia. I put them all into their new home and pretty soon they'll be laying delicious brown eggs. We are crossing our fingers for them to start laying enough eggs to bring to market soon, but so far, they are focused on settling in. We will update you when we have eggs!
Late one recent Friday, I took two deer off of the farm to dissuade others from grazing on crops and destroying plastic mulch. After field dressing the deer, I promptly butchered them, getting some very nice whole cuts of venison. I let very little go to waste, and even ground up over thirteen pounds. Now the carnivores on our crew can indulge! Kept the tenderloins for myself, of course.
