Greetings from Dancing Hen Farm!
I am happy to announce that our winter buying club will be open for delivery this weekend. Ordering will is now open for the buying club and will close on Thursday (11/21) at 5 am. Deliveries and pick-ups will be this weekend. Pick up sites and times are listed on our website. Contact the farm if you have questions
ATTENTION BLOOMSBURG Buying Club members: We are still determining when we will be getting product to you. If you place an order, we will contact you directly, either by email or phone to coordinate. Again, contact the farm if you have questions.
A quick note on our winter buying club, for those of you new to this option. Our winter buying club is a pay as you go option. You will meet us at a designated location, pay for your purchases and pick up your items. We also will need to activate your account before you can order, so please allow us time to do so. I usually check our website several times during the day when ordering is taking place. As always, contact the farm with any questions.
So what can you find on this week's buying club. We are happy to say we have a good supply of 2019 Dancing Hen Farm Apple Orchard pork. Most cuts of pork are now available, but be aware we sell out of some of the popular items very quickly. Farmer Don tells me the hams this year are in larger, perfect for a ham dinner. We also have a good supply of Dancing Hen Farm Pasture Raised chicken and eggs. Despite the super cold temperatures, we are still harvesting some greens and Farmer Don has made a small harvest of greens available. Again, first come.
Although not on our buying club, we do have a source for pasture raised ducks. These ducks are being raised by a family friend. Please contact us for more information or if you are interested in reserving a duck for the holidays.
Speaking of the cold, it is hard to believe that we have already seen single digit temperatures here on farm. I am not complaining, as it seems we had some really beautiful days to mark the end of October. With only our laying hens and a few shivering rows of vegetables to tend to, life is slowing down. Now we will settle in for the winter!
On farm, winter is a time for healing, resting and reflecting. We will soon have our annual business meeting to discuss last season and make plans for next season. This is an official meeting between Farmer Don and I. We schedule a time and even type up and follow an agenda. We always welcome feed-back and suggestions, so if you feel inclined, please send us your comments.
As always, thank you for your support of not only our small family farm, but sustainable and local agriculture.
