Just like the colorful falling leaves and foliage that makes our fall season in Maine so lovely, we have a seasonal color that appears along the fringes of our forests and fields …..hunter orange ! We do allow a very select few to hunt for deer on our land and as our farm is in the midst of more than 10,000 acres of zoning protected farm and forest land there is plenty of room for the deer to roam and forage. Last week one of “our “ hunters reported seeing a young bear on our lower wooded property and sightings of bobcat, fox and coyotes are frequent as well….

We are through with farmers’ markets for the season, and while always a bit bittersweet for them to end, our weather will now begin to be quite unstable, and these lovely fall days will not be the norm. Setting up markets is an ambitious job at any time of the season, struggling with winds and cold weather creates an obstacle that deters all but the hardiest of vendors as we have seen by the dwindling of market members over the past month. I will miss seeing so many wonderful regular customers….. HOWEVER…. Through our weekly food offering, I can continue to offer to you all farm fresh, locally grown foods . We will be updating our food , spice and holiday pie offering considerably this week, and our list for next week will be quite different….. so , please disregard the order deadline as posted in the file, if orders are received by Wednesday evening, I will gather, compile and deliver Friday afternoon.

Your support of local foods and our excellent small Maine farms is gratefully appreciated, I look forward to hearing from you soon! Off I go to feed the turkeys! Order yours soon!

Gosh, our fall season is rushing upon us all…. while we have not had a heavy frost here yet, there have been many cool mornings with a coating of frost over all…

Our turkeys continue to thrive and grow and grow and GROW. ! We have them in large pens in the high tunnel and if they are out of food (frequently) and water, my goodness, the racket they put up !100 hungry feathery mouths loudly demanding food and water….hurry hurry HURRY !

This week marks the end of our outdoor market season, and while we continue to hear from our customers that they regret markets coming to an end, we have been blessed by excellent weather for our markets ,not having to cancel one all season long which is a rarity in itself…. Our weather will change soon for the “worst”, colder temps and blustery winds of course… and while enjoying the protection of our portable canopies, no one needs to be at risk of tents becoming flying weapons.. and I have been in many market situations where a sudden gust will lift our canopies for “take off” !

Our delivery schedule will remain the same this week, Friday deliveries will resume the week of Oct 31…..

I hope to hear from you all, please let me know if you desire a turkey to be reserved, all of our fresh turkeys will come with a packet of seasonings, and full instructions on the best way to roast your holiday centerpiece !

And as always, I appreciate your continuing support of local foods, our excellent small Maine farms and local hard working small business folks !

The leaves are falling! I do hope that you all have taken just a little break to drive through the wonderfully colored backroads and scenic over looks in our rugged state! The pumpkins ,gourds and leaves are in full color and on display, here at the shop and all along the farm stands on our rural roads. The winter crops are filling the cold storage bins for us to have an ample supply throughout the winter months. Here at the farm we will finish stacking firewood, load the hay bales into the high tunnel and tighten tighten tighten up the “ship” in readiness for the snow and cold heading our way…..this was the last open weekend for our “glamping” Tentrr site, we will pull that apart and pack the tent and all the supplies away until next spring…my big puppy boys have

begun to add a layer of winter undercoat to their thick fur, they and the sheep are in full cold weather preparation. And the turkeys! Honest to goodness, those never ending hungry mouths are really putting on the pounds and packing the food away….remember to reserve yours today… So, stay warm all, please let us know what we can provide you for local excellent foods, we can pack it up for Wednesday market (just a few of those left) or deliver Friday, whatever you might prefer.

I look forward to seeing and hearing from you all, grateful I am for your support and friendship ! Kath
