2020 Buying Club January 11

Hi Friends of the Farm!!
Happy Holidays to all!! Here's hoping you made it through the Holidays. We survived the holidays ourselves and are ready to move on in 2020. Wow, another year sharing the harvest with our friends and local community. Year 13 for Dancing Hen Farm. Another wow!
With the hustle and bustle over, it's time to open up the buying club! I know Farmer Phil is climbing the walls waiting to get out on the road and do deliveries! So here we come! We will have lots of Apple Orchard Pork (including Bacon), our Pastured Poultry, Wild for Salmon filets and burgers, as well as storage sweet potatoes and looking at our fields some fresh spinach and salad lettuce. To me this has been (so far) the winter that hasn't happened. I covered the greens with plastic, back around two months ago and the veggies look pretty good under there. I do have to check another bed we have for turnips and radishes. If I can share these I will add them on Wednesday. The last time I harvested, the turnips were so sweet!! Really hoping I can get some out to you. They are great right now in soups and stews!
So, the news from the farm this week is "BUYING CLUB IS OPEN!"
Details are the same, we'll be out on Saturday, 1st at the library, then down 309 to Forty Fort, then down 309 and up to Mt. Top. Some of you who had previous orders, I will be updating payments on Wednesday, and I appreciate your patience.
Our next newsletter should have updates about the 2020 CSA season. We'll be pulling the website together shortly for sign ups. Right now things are looking to be the same as last year with a shorter season and a little less memberships. So, keep your eyes open for that announcement.
Be well friends, and look for Farmer Phil and I out and about in the community!
Thanks again for your support!
Farmer Don
