Munchkins, Apprentice Butchers, et al

Hello folks, 

It's been an exciting week at the farm! Just today we had a group of about 30 pre-schoolers with parents from the Forest Play group come out for a visit. That was loads of fun to see their curiosity and excitement. Here is a picture of them looking at our ducks:

Sunday we had our first pork side butchery workshop, which was really successful! We cut sawed, cut, trimmed, and made sausage from one of our Large Black pigs. Thanks so much to our market manager Logan Higger for sharing his expertise and leading this class!

Our pigs for market are back from the butcher, and we are loaded with everything from bacon and sausage, to smoked shoulders and hams, roasts, chops, you name it we probably got it. Full selection at market starting Friday. And of course we're picking lots of fun veggies and herbs for market! We still have peppers and tomatoes, husk cherries, and tropical things like ginger and turmeric, and delicious fall crops are coming in, too. We have 5 different kinds of Japanese mustards this week...try em all. Here's Kate and Sophie showing off some of the greenery:
