Carlton Farms Newsletter 2-19-18

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

Signs of Spring:

Signs of spring have been showing up around the farm this week. When the Daffodils bloom it always seems to early, but we all know that time marches on. March is basically a week away. In addition to the Daffodils, the yellowbells and cherry trees are blooming. All of which is keeping the honeybees busy. As I write this it reminds me that I have a few things still to prune: Muscadines, blueberries, butterfly bushes, and a few trees. Surely winter can't be coming to a close, i'm not finished with all of my winter projects.  Right now we are cleaning and making some improvements to our chick brooder.  Broiler chicks will be arriving in a couple of weeks.  I had better stop typing and get busy with the last few winter projects so I can welcome Spring with open arms.
