Brett sent me this picture from the fields this morning: 5 baskets of eggs!!! It’s time to start baking, poaching, frying, scrambling and otherwise consuming eggs, STAT!
Usually, we’re at about 2-2.5 baskets, but when the warmer weather kicks in, the ladies get a little more prolific. This is a serious haul. Now, if we can just keep the dog from consuming more than her share…
Are you feeling like you want to experience a little more spring? Come to the Early Spring Supper Saturday night at the Brick Farm Market with Chef Aaron Philipson of Blue Bottle Cafe. Register here, and see the full menu (PDF open in a new window.) Spaces are filling up quickly so sign up soon.
Aaron, who often purchases meat from Double Brook Farm, will be using our lamb to create his ‘duo of lamb’. Tasty!
Speaking of lamb. It’s almost that time of year. About 200 new lambs will be born over the next month or so!
Brett has moved the flock closer to his house so that he can watch over the process from dawn to dusk. It’s gonna get loud! But for now, the ewes are waiting for the snow to completely melt and eating all the hay they can.
