Hello Epiphany Farms Friends,
Fall is officially here and winter is right behind it. Over the last couple of weeks we have really been focusing our efforts towards building winter structures, to provide shelter and warmth for our animals. Dinner parties have really been booking up and we will be working the Bloomington Market for the last three Saturdays of the season. The market concludes on October 31st, 2009.
Summer Garden and Winter Harvests
With the conclusion of our summer garden we are trying to keep fall vegetables protected under low tunnel greenhouses. So far, beets, lettuce greens, onions, spinach, radishes and some basic herbs have all done great in the extra protection and we will see how long into the cold months this will hold up. We have also had very successful germinations in the winter garden that is positioned on a nice south-facing slope enjoying the direct sun light. Hopefully this will provide greens through the winter.
The chickens are still producing a consistent amount of fresh eggs. If anyone is interested in farm fresh eggs, please contact us at anytime. We have both Brown and White Pullet eggs and the price is $3.00 for 15 eggs.
For the last nine months we have been practicing, “Intensive Pasture Rotation”. We have really enjoyed working with them on a daily bases and have seen dramatic improvement in our pastures health. For the first time we will be offering grass fed beef for sale.
The price breakdown is as follows:
- $2.00 per pound of Hanging Weight paid to Epiphany Farms Enterprise
- Processing fee from the Meat Locker Approx. $0.45 per pound plus disposal
We will deliver the steer to Chenoa Meats and you will be billed once the butcher gives us the hanging weight of the carcass. Pickup time and date will need to be arranged with the meat locker. Call us to discuss the details of your order.
We have a limited supply of Grass Fed Beef this fall.
Please call or E-Mail to place your order.
