Time for Cordray's Beef?

Hello, Friends!

As February draws to a close, I'm sure you are wondering what happened to the beef we promised.  Well, it seems that our steers have adopted a bad family trait!  You see, we live only 3 miles from our church. You'd think we'd be the last ones to be late.  But, to be honest, we are so often running late that our friends started calling it "Cordray Time", that  5 or 10 minutes of tardiness,  just a tad late.  It appears the steers are going to be just a tad late.  I could blame it on the weather.  These cold nights have slowed down the grass growing, I could blame it on the steers. Without artificial growth hormones and forced feeding feedlots, our steers grow slower.  But it all boils down to I missed my estimate.  So we'll have shares and beef sides soon. It looks like April - that's just February on Cordray Time!
We'll be sending out an email then to let you know how to reserve yours.

These guys' mom had a set of completely white twins last year this time. This year she did it again, but one is brown and one grey. Twins in cattle is quite rare!

Now at 24!

We've added some neighbor's eggs and a few "Easter Egg" chicken eggs for a total of 24. This incubator holds them at a steady temperature and humidity for 21 days. Stay tuned!

Coming soon?

Thought I'd share the beginnings of free range eggs to be available next season. These are Rhode Island Red chicken eggs from free range hens in Dorchester.
