Carlton Farms Newsletter

At Carlton Farms, we humanely and organically utilize domestic animals on grass to produce the nutritious food we provide for our community.
Delivery News
No Home Delivery This Week.
Some days things are going good and we are firing on all cylinders. Other times it feels like the wheels are about to fall off. Well, this week I expect the wheels to fall off at any second. This week we find ourselves down a home delivery driver. Despite my efforts to hire one recently, we are without a back-up. This means that for this week there will be no home delivery or residential Private Drop-off delivery.
We will Still be making deliveries to our Mobile Market Locations. If you can make it out to one of those locations, I will do my best to have the trailer well stocked. We will also be finding a way to make deliveries to most of our drop-off locations.

I so apologize for this inconvenience. We have worked hard to make home delivery available, and I place great value on consistency and routine. I literally cringe writing this email, knowing that we aren't able to offer our normal level of service this week. Please work with us this week. Try to make it out to a Mobile Market stop. We will diligently attempt to put the wheels back on and be firing on all cylinders again next week.
Milk and Egg Supply
Spring Egg sale. The hens are working overtime, so we get to share their bountiful production with you. While production is at "Spring" levels, eggs are $5 per dozen. This probably will only last a few weeks, so stock up now.

Milk is still in adequate supply, as the girls have been producing good after our early 2019 calf crop. Plenty of milk available to order, and some extra available at the Mobile Market locations.
Product's of the week.
One from Carlton Farms, and one from our food producing friends. Just a little something that we have been enjoying lately and thought you may like also.
The Incredible Edible Egg is the Carlton Farms Product of the week, and they are on sale for $5/dz. Eggs are naturally plentiful in the springtime, so we want to share the bounty with you. Our chickens are pasture raised and fed a non-gmo diet. Click here to go straight to our egg Page

Join the Conversation
A few weeks ago we created a Facebook Group. Originally the thought was to connect people that wanted to create a private drop-off. That's still one of the objectives of this group, but it seems to me that this group may be useful in other ways. Some of my thoughts for types of things to share on this group would be:
  • Sharing recipes
  • How to prepare a specific cut of meat
  • How do I peal a fresh boiled egg
  • What is this veggie, how do I prepare it
  • How do yall make cheese, yogurt, kefir
  • Sharing of started culture
There is no limit to the conversations that could come up. Hopefully this can become a place where like minded people to share ideas and stories. No negativity. Just practical advice about farm fresh eating.
