It’s been a very strange year, but one of the constant highlights has been the process of collecting turkey eggs, incubating, and hatching the poults and watching them get out onto pasture. In the dark months of March, it was a form of therapy (see Jon in the background hanging out!).
It is our feeling on the farm that Thanksgiving this year symbolizes something much more than the annual food-fest. During a time that is fraught with restrictions on gatherings, I look forward to seeing all the creative ways that people find to celebrate and support each other. It is a chance to gather with your ‘pod’ and share a meal as we dip our toes back into the waters of entertaining, with precautions abound.
Send us your ideas – we’d love to know how you’re managing food and family this year.
But most importantly – don’t forget the bird.
Our birds, primarily Spanish Black and Bronze heritage varieties, are raised by us from start to finish. We breed, incubate, hatch, brood, and pasture them all here in Hopewell, NJ. The birds, when they are old enough, go out onto pasture and graze on grasses, bugs, seeds and more. The supplemental grain they eat is a non-GMO feed grown for us by local NJ farmers and ground by our team. Our turkeys have a deep, rich flavor you can only get from a pastured bird (and they are near impossible to ruin in the oven).
As always, orders are being taken through our market, Brick Farm Market, in Hopewell. For a quick link to ordering, CLICK HERE. All the information about pick up times and ordering will be there. Once you select a time, please try to adhere to your window to reduce traffic at the store. Don’t forget to browse the full menu for your sides, sweets, appetizers and anything else you need to make the holiday easy and delicious.
We thank you for your ongoing support!
