At Carlton Farms, we humanely and organically utilize domestic animals to produce the nutritious food we provide for our community.
Our veggie share has been tough to put together for the past few weeks. Veggies are a little hard to come by this time of year. That's why you haven't seen many a-la-carte veggies posted online. Hopefully that's about to change, as we have a nice share coming your way this week.
This weeks share:
The first batch of fall lamb is going to the processor next week. We have listed lamb bulk boxes online for pre-order. Reserve yours today.
Turkeys are also available for pre-order, reserve yours today
Remaining Chickens are now posted online and ready to be ordered.
Beef and Pork are also available in good quantity.
You may have noticed that we seem to have a summer heat wave upon us. This summer, up until now, was pretty tolerable. Don't get me wrong, it was hot, but not unbearable so. We had an ample amount of rain throughout the summer. As well as cooling things down, with the rain comes with a number of overcast days that break the summer heat cycle. It has been a summer that all of our grazing animals have enjoyed. Cattle have gained weight better than normal. Pigs have enjoyed more mud wallows. Broiler chickens, laying Hens, and Turkeys have enjoyed more lush summer pasture. With all that said, here in the south we must be ready for the heat when it hits. In the picture you can see the turkeys lounging in the shade of a grain wagon. The grain wagons are not in use for hauling grain at the moment so we decided to place them in the pasture with the turkeys for added shade. As you can tell from the picture, they are using every bit of the shade. The great thing about this shade is its portability. As we rotate the turkeys to fresh pasture, the shade can be moved right along with them. Sometimes you just have to look around and use what you already have to solve a problem.
