Delivery News
REMINDER: Order deadline is Noon the day before we deliver:
Unfortunately there were a couple of mix-ups with the early delivery to the drop-off locations last week. We apologize for any inconvenience and will be working to make sure we get everyone what they ordered. If you did not receive your order please email us the details so that we can get the situation rectified.
Meat Update:
We have a new selection of beef and pork on the way home from the processor as I type this. We will be spending the evening getting everything sorted and posted online. Also, Lamb will be going to the processor today. It should be back here next week so be on the lookout for that.

Fall Vegetable Shares are available now.

On the Farm

On The Farm:
We trust that everyone had a restful Thanksgiving holiday. We hope your turkey was cooked just right. As we get back to the normal routine there is plenty to do here on the farm. Here is a sample of what's going on:
  • Planting 40 acres of spring grazing tomorrow, since there is finally some rain in the forecast. Normally this would have been done before Halloween, but the lack of rain has delayed the planting. 
  • Finishing cleaning up some low land that we can only get to during dry weather. We may as well take advantage of the dry situation...right?
  • Taking Lambs to the processor, we only do this once per year so that makes it noteworthy.
  • Planning winter projects like a barn addition and fence building. 
  • All that in addition to milking cows and collection eggs. 
I will be posting pictures of our endeavors on the farm.  Be sure to check out: or on our new instagram account @carltonfarm

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