A good supply of beef is listed online along with all of the other types of meat. We will be processing chickens in a week or so. However, we still have a cooler full of turkeys. If you think you will be wanting a turkey in the next few months please order it now. We need to clear that freezer space for the upcoming chicken. 

Weston Price Formula Kit: Julie and I thought we were gonna need to make the Weston Price formula for our youngest, but as it worked out she was able to keep up with the nursing demand until her first birthday. So, we have a Nourishing Traditions Formula Kit that we ordered from Radiant Life that we would like to sell. This is the 3 month kit that was $294.95. If someone needs it, we would be willing to sell for $200. Reply to this email if you are interested.

On the Farm
Jersey's Sheep and Atticus's Calf enjoying the new grass. Even though it looks as if they are mad at each other in this pic.
Grass is growing:
Traditionally we would not have better grazing in January and February than in the previous 5 months, but obviously this is no traditional year. Spring grazing is shaping up nicely, despite the month listed at the top of the calendar. 
As you read this Julie and I will be about to return from a long weekend away, far away from the 70 degree Georgia February. We agreed not to buy each other a Christmas Gift this year, instead we (with the help of babysitting grandparents) decided to take a trip... just the two of us. It's hard to leave the kids, but we haven't done this in a couple of years so we thought it was time. Besides, I can't stay away from the farm for too long, so a short trip is all any of us could handle (grandparents included).  So where are we you ask? We decided to check off a bucket list item and snowmobile through yellowstone park. The forecast calls for no temps above 23 for the duration of the trip, and it's gonna be 11 when we arrive. I guess I'll have a little encounter with winter this year after all. Hopefully the grass will still be growing here in Georgia when we return. Either way, hopefully we'll come back with  plenty of pictures and a cool story to share here next week. 

 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.
