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
Home delivery should be back in action this 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
Strawberries are at peak production, so we have more than we had in the past couple weeks. enjoy them while you can, the season is short. If you want to freeze a few now would be the perfect time.

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.

On the Farm
Either today or tomorrow, the small barns in this picture will be the new home for our latest batch of 800 broiler chickens. They have no floor and will be pulled across the ground daily to give the birds access to fresh grass and bugs. The houses will have self contained water and feed. The beauty of this system is that we can keep the chickens protected from predators, while allowing them to live daily on the green grass and breathing fresh air. I'll keep you posted as we get these moved out to pasture.

Also, In case you didn't know. We archive all of my "On the Farm" articles in blog form. You can find those on our website. Click here to read our Blog, "Shooting the Bull".
