Thank you to everyone who has emailed / called in response to the piece about us that ran in the Dining section of the NY Times today. We're pretty excited about this new phase of our farm life. Can't wait to meet you all!
Also, wanted to take this opportunity to remind everyone that we will have LOT'S OF LAMB AND PORK in early October. We expect to sell out quickly so please fill out our contact form to let us know what you'd like to reserve. We will write you back promptly with details about pricing for whole or half pig or lamb (all individual cuts will be vacuum packed for long term freezer storage) or check our PRICE-LIST page for individual cut prices from our farm store. (we don't ship, but might make a drive down to NYC for a drop off if we get enough people interested in large orders)
Also, since there was no link in the article: The Meeting School is in Rindge, New Hampshire.
And finally, since today's article will likely draw our biggest web audience to date, we must mention an issue that is very near and dear to our hearts. Natural Gas Drilling in the Marcellus Shale. This is not a good thing for many many reasons beyond the obvious damage to our air, water, land and livelihood (imagine 100s of enormous trucks zooming up and down every country road every day for each new well).
If you live in New York City then you drink the water that will be destroyed here in the NYC watershed region (up where we are) The prospect of destroying this natural landscape should be high on your list of concerns for the future.
There are many opinions to be found on the internet. The people of the Damascus Citizens for Sustainability group have witnessed the horrors first hand. Please forgive me for not parsing the information for you right now, but their site is very informative and will quickly get you up to speed on the issues. We will have more to say on this in future posts. Thanks for reading.
