It’s been a busy summer at Windswept Acres. Between the growing, happy animals and the
The pigs stayed cool this summer in a mud hole that was flooded on a daily basis. There’s nothing that makes you smile like a contented, happy, snorting pig in a mud hole on hot day!
struggles and challenges of the drought, we’ve had our hands full. First, I extend my apologies for not updating this site on a regular basis. One of my pet peeves is websites that are chronicles of the past and not the present. As we are figuring out efficiencies of our farm and this new business, we’ll be able to add new posts once a week, but I think that will have to wait until the winter!
We process our summer meat chickens in the middle of one of the many heat waves in early July. Thank you to all of you who, hopefully, are enjoying those happy chickens! Our second batch arrived at the end of August. We still have some available for purchase.
We decided to get a small flock of turkeys in the middle of August. Those will be processed the week of Thanksgiving so that you can have fresh (not frozen) happy turkey for your Thanksgiving table. We only have two left, as all the others have already been reserved. If you are interested, email us ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The pigs are growing and should be ready for harvest in the middle to end of October. Once the grass finely greened up and grew in August, they were introduced to a new pasture. Wow, do they love that! For those of you lucky enough to get one this year, get ready for some happy and absolutely delicious pork!
Our new brochure and order form are now available.
