Turkey Time Is Here Again!

Dear friends,

            As has been our practice for more than 2 decades, we are again raising certified organic pasture raised turkeys for Thanksgiving. We love these raucous and nosey birds that move toward people, as opposed to chickens who move away. They started life inside in the brooder house with a nice array of certified organic feed, a shovelful of garden dirt, some dandelion greens and comfrey each day. They moved onto range after one month of age and have been moved daily since then.

We are adding a late fall vegetable share!

Late Fall Share: Despite the drought, the worst in our experience here since 1982, we have the best selection of most nutritious and tasty produce ever. We credit this to our move to 85% no till and continued fertility innovations. You can join up for some of the last produce of the season. We are offering one size which will include approximately 8-10lbs. of food each week.

New Year’s resolution 2016

Dear Friends of Many Hands Organic Farm,
 
I have made a New Year’s resolution to write to you each month this year. This resolution is in part made possible by the “hiring” (for barter) of Kathleen Geary and Roshni Prabakar to help with Mail Chimp deliveries, website management, and generally with office data management – never my forte. Nina Marcinowski remains as our bookkeeper, also for barter. David Petrovick hired on last summer to manage our machinery for us, on an as needed basis, and both Jack and I are thrilled with the relationship.
