About that rain . . .

Image
Well, my last post stating that the rain wasn't too bad was a bit premature. The Colorado Farm and Art Market ended up closing early because of the storms in the area. Between storms in Canon City and Colorado Springs this week, we will have a lot of eggs available at our Saturday market at Margarita at Pine Creek. Nevertheless, order yours online if you want to make sure that you get a dozen or three. We always run out at our Saturday market. Also, while we had a couple of sales in the rain on Wednesday, the big roll out of our first meat chickens will be this Saturday morning. Check out our online order form to reserve yours before the market opens. Finally, I must admit that I am not a huge fan of social medial. Nevertheless, I did reenter the Facebook  world recently. If you want to stay up with the latest farm news, especially on market days, find us on Facebook - @Virescofarm, and on Twitter @VirescoF.

Chickens are here!

Our meat chickens are finally ready and available TODAY at the Downtown Colorado Springs Farmers Market. The rain is not bad, so come see us at the market.

It is bitter-sweet for me to announce that we are getting down to some basic staples in our meat supply. I say bitter-sweet because we have been overwhelmed with the positive response from our new customers as to the quality of our meat, especially of our beef steaks. We are very please to provide high quality grass finished beef. However, we are a small farm and cannot (yet) keep up with the growing demand for our products. We will be processing two more beeves in early August. After a 21 day aging period, we should have more steaks in time for Labor Day barbecues. Until then, we have plenty of ground beef (a family favorite) and several arm roasts remaining. (Also, if you like beef heart or tongue, let us know.) We are in a little better shape with our pork, but supplies of some products are getting limited. We still have a pretty good supply of our ground pork and sausages, as well as pork chops. We also have several ham steaks available. We will be sampling our ham steaks

Eggs Are Now Available . . .

but our supply is limited. We are very please to be offering our farm fresh eggs to three Farmers Markets this summer. Our supply is limited to about 20 to 25 dozen per week, so we sell out quickly. Arrive at markets early if you want to snag a dozen or two before they are gone.
