Spring Lamb now available
Spring Lamb is now back from the processor. We have all of the cuts listed online, so fill your freezer now. We usually only process lamb once per year, so the variety of the selection will start to diminish in the coming weeks. 

In addition to the lamb, we do still have a nice selection of beef.  Pork inventory however is very low. We will be taking in more pigs to the processor next week. 
Our chickens are sensing that spring is around the corner, so they have been laying more eggs. If you have been limiting yourself on purchasing eggs, that is no longer necessary. We have a good supply of eggs.

The Carlton Farms Family is growing.
Most of you know by now that we added to our family last week.  We are happy to announce that everyone is doing great as we adjust to being a family of five.  Jersey (6) and Atticus (3) were a little stand-offish at first, but have really warmed up to the idea of a baby sister.  Julie and I, despite being a little exhausted, couldn't be more happy. Our house seems a little more complete.  Thanks for all of the prayers, nice comments and emails that we have received. We are truly proud to be your farmer, and it is a pleasure to share these special moments in our lives with you.  There is a special community built around Carlton Farms, and for that we are grateful.   We will be getting back into the swing of things this week to make our regular deliveries. If you happened to order last week before we closed the online store, we will roll those orders to this week. Otherwise order as usual. I look forward to seeing everyone, and yes, I will bring plenty of pictures. 
Spring Vegetable Shares are available to order
We have posted the Spring Vegetable Share online early this year.  Get ahead of the game and reserve your spot in our subscription style vegetable program while space is still available.

Thanks for your continued support. At Carlton Farms we are proud to be your farmer.
