First box will be JUNE 16! If you haven’t gotten emails from us about it, please contact us!

Hi everyone!  Today was originally planned to be our first box.  Due to the cold, wet Spring, we are pushing that date back to next Thursday, June 16.  We are really looking forward to getting the first boxes out!  You should also know that this delay at the beginning of the season will mean a box added at the end of the season.  So, less lettuce and greens at the beginning means more squash and potatoes at the end of the season.  Not a bad trade!

We have sent out emails with dropsite information and instructions.  If you have not been getting emails from us, please contact us to let us know.  A few people have had typos when entering their email addresses and have not been getting the emails.  You can also check to make sure that we are on the “safe list” so that our emails don’t go into your trash bin.

May was a very busy month for us!  We had to get the fieldwork done that we normally do in April  done in May along with all the usual transplanting that happens in May.  We have most all the crops planted in the fields.  Now that it’s June we are battling the weeds and looking forward to harvest!

If you signed up for the pork store access and would like to purchace some meat you can go to this link: http://csa.farmigo.com/store/turniprock and select a pork package. We will deliver your pork order directly to your home. It is a one time purchace and we deliver once per month when we have enough orders.  Our pork is 50% duroc which is a heritage breed that makes the meat redder and more marbled with fat. Our pork is not lean. It is old fashioned pork full of flavor!  Our pigs are raised outside getting exercise and sunshine and are fed Organic feed and recieve no antibiotics or hormones. We think that a pork package would make a wonderful Father’s Day gift!   We will be delivering pork this weekend for the month of June. Get your order in soon! If you are interested in a half or whole hog, contact us. If you have not signed up for pork store access and would like to add it to your account (it does not cost anything to add the store access) you can follow this link to your account where you can add “pork store access”: http://csa.farmigo.com/account/turniprock

We are also pleased to announce the birth of our first calf!  Our cow, Rita had a baby girl calf (also known as a heifer) on June 1.  We named her June and she is a beauty!

Another exciting development on the farm is thst we are putting in a cheese room!  We will be making farmstead cheese with milk from our cows!  We will hopefully be offering cheese to the CSA starting the 2013 season!  Our Amish neighbors helped us put in the cheese room.

    We received our pork delivery last Saturday and made some pork chops on the grill. They were amazing! They looked like huge, thick T-bone steaks! We seasoned with kosher salt and pepper and topped them with Harissa sauce – Yummy! Thank you, Turnip Rock!! You ROCK!
