Carlton Farms Newsletter 1-29-18

Delivery News
REMINDER: Order deadline is Noon the day before we deliver:
  • We have lots of inventory online. The last of this years lamb has been processed and is currently online. A few more Bulk Bundles have been added.
  • Egg supply is very tight, as it usually is this time of year. Please order if you expect to get eggs for the next few weeks.
  • Home delivery is a great option if you find that you can't consistently make it to the mobile market. Fees are modest, especially for larger orders.
  • In addition to the home deliveries, we have started offering a new concept called "private drop-offs".  If you have a few friends that could all take delivery at one location, we can save you all some money on the delivery fee. Your address and information would be kept private and not available online, except to the people you invite. Let us know by replying to this email if you think this might work for you.

On the Farm

Our chickens are looking forward to
grass like this in the springtime.
Winter Projects:
 Usually winter time is when we are able to complete some projects that are just hard to get to during the growing season. This year however, the winter project list doesn't seem to be getting any shorter. With the colder that normal winter, we seem to be spending most of our time either preparing for a freeze or recovering from a freeze. We have our fingers crossed that most of that raw winter weather is behind us for this year. If so, this is a list of projects we hope to complete.
  • Build a fence around some newly cleared land.
  • Build some cross fencing in an existing pasture
  • Prototype a new chicken watering system that is designed in my head. (freeze proof)
  • Design and build a small pasture/pond based coop for Ducks
  • Repair a corral that was damaged by falling trees in the snow storm.

I could make the list longer, but i'd just overwhelm myself so i'll stop right there.  We hope you are having a productive winter.
