Farm to Table: Chickens • Ducks • Pigs
Our Chicks... Just Two Weeks Old!
The colloquial term for chickens is meat birds – raised for their meat, as opposed to layers , which produce eggs, obviously. Our meat birds grow incredibly fast on the best organic feed available. They’re ready in just ten weeks! Beyond that nature is unkind…
Duck Egg Omelettes Anyone?
Reluctant babies meeting their older sisters for the first time... The five new breeds will take about six months before they're laying. There are no distinguishable taste differences between all nine breeds, but one thing is certain, they’re all delicious!
Our Three Little Pigs... Well, Just One is Ours!
We picked up our pigs about a month ago from nearby Brown Boar Farm. Here they are on their first day – about 40 pounds. In six months they should grow to 225-240 lbs. They’re a Tamworth and Berkshire cross-breed. The House of Windsor adopted the Berkshire as their swine of choice over 300 years ago! Learn more below .

Beaver Pond Londonderry, Vermont
We stumbled upon this incredible beaver pond on this well-traveled dirt road in Londonderry. The terrain prevented us from taking a better photo; I had to reach well over my head to even get this shot! The pond depth was 6-8 feet deep and the engineering mesmerizing. Just a great find!
