This weekend was the annual turkey harvest and the fresh turkeys are now ready for pickup at the Market. If you forgot to order, we have a limited number of fresh birds for pickup starting today through Wednesday. It will be first-come-first-served! It was a great weekend of teamwork. Below are Willson and Tom Gates cleaning the birds in a very steamy cleaning room.
And neighbor John Comp was on hand to peel and clean gizzards.
He does quality work. Gravy lovers everywhere will be thanking him!
It was a cold weekend – especially when you needed to fish the chilled birds out of the ice water! Brrrr.
But Lindsay and Courtney did it with a smile.
At the end of the two day effort, we were left with a pile of feathers and innards for composting and approximately 500 beautiful, heritage birds for the market. Plus a team of very tired farm hands and volunteers. A big thank you to everyone who helped out!
