We are up and running at last. I hope all enjoyed winter like it used to be when I was young. We have 600 chickens on the ground at present. For those of you who want to get fresh Chickens our first processing day is Sunday, May 4th. Be sure and bring a cooler with ice and plan to arrive after 1:00 PM. As always if you are interested in volunteering , we get started around 8:00 AM. We are looking to have a great season this year. I have pre-ordered 2,700 chicks to arrive between March and the end of September. we also have added 50 new layers so our egg production should double this year. For those of you who only see us at the markets, we will be adding fresh grown produce to our stalls as it comes in. We look forward to seeing all of you in the near future and hope your spring is a happy one.
Just a reminder that summer is almost over and you should start thinking about stocking up chickens for the long upcoming winter. We will be processing our last chickens on or the middle of October and that will be it until next April. Last year a lot of our customers called after October to order Chicken and we had none to sell. so please start planning your orders for the whole winter before October. We are now selling our chickens at Natures Outlet Stores, one at 3548 Electric road (Rt. 419) and the one at Valley View Mall. So if you miss on Saturday at the farmers markets you can now pick our chickens at both Natures Outlet locations. As most of you know we had my niece Sandy Ramsey as an intern on the farm for summer. Sandy is starting her 2nd year at Carolina State, in Raleigh N.C. She has been accepted into the engineering department and we are all thrilled for her. Thanks again Sandy for all your help this summer and the best of luck with school this year. Once more please get your winter orders together so we can get you enough chickens to carrier over.
Thanks to each and every one of our customers this year. Through you we are " We are replenishing the planet one meal at a time" Thanks so much, G.W. Ramsey
