Holly and I want to thank you, our customers, for supporting our fledgling farming business in 2011. We worked very hard to provide you with the highest quality chicken and eggs that we know how to grow. Your enthusiasm, encouragement, and smiling faces always provide us with a much needed boost during the long season and we are grateful for all of you. We're busy planning for next season and we hope to continue to diversify our farm to add incremental revenue streams. We'll definitely increase our laying flock and we hope to add some lambs/sheep to act as our lead herbivore on the pasture. We'll continue to supply you with Cornish Cross (white broilers) and Red Broilers next season.
We want to thank Tom Hart, our part time apprentice in 2011, for all of his hard work and assistance this year. He will be very difficult to replace and we wish him success in his new farming venture. Having said that, we are seeking a full or part time apprentice for the 2012 season (March - October). If you know any honest, hard working people who have a passion for our kind of farming, let us know.We've committed ourselves to small, local farming. We do our very best to farm sustainably, organically, and as good stewards of the animals and land. We realize that this kind of farming is more expensive for you, but we also know that in the long run, it's worth it. We're grateful that you understand this.
By the way, our eggs are available at Fork and Anchor in East Marion and Love Lane Market in Mattituck. The North Fork Table in Southold is featuring them on their new brunch menu.
Our spice rubs and frying dredge will be available at A Taste of the North Fork on Peconic Lane and Love Lane Market.We wish you and your families a wonderful holiday season and good health in 2012.
We look forward to seeing you next season or around town.
Holly and Chris
