Final preparations are being made for the holiday rush.  Hams are being smoked, beef are being processed and aged and another round of turkeys will be be slaughtered for the festivities. But after the craziness of Thanksgiving, this is a much slower roll.

We love this time of year because there is such a focus is on food and family. We couldn't agree more with that!

We also love this time of year because there is a sense of things being settled before we head into lambing season in January.

The ewes are in the barn and all bedded down ready to hide out in case of snow.

(But really, they are usually out in all the elements…)

The guard dogs are generally with their charges in one place for a few months and a little less ‘barky.

And most of the animals just ease back and get cozy in the hay or wood chips for the duration.

As always, our meats can be found exclusively at Brick Farm Market and at Brick Farm Tavern. To order your meats for the holidays (and other delicious sides and desserts), please CLICK HERE.

Happy Holidays to you. We hope you get to have some quiet cozy moments of your own.

Sheep Are Finally On The Spring Grass

The day finally arrived! We prepared to let the flock loose on the spring grass for the first time this year. And out they went… The action was very much like a crowded escalator when one person stops at the bottom as the first sheep (literally) out of the gate ...
