Holiday Updates from the Farm

Posted 11/19/2020 10:06am by Anne and Mark Lahner.

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Can you believe Thanksgiving is only a week from today?!?

For those of you looking for local, farm-raised turkeys - we still have 3 or 4, that are 20 pounds or less, in the freezer that are available. But don't wait long to decide! Turkeys are $4.00 per pound and spent their lives free-ranging here at Olympia Farm.

We recently put our last batch of roasters for 2020 in the freezer. There is a larger than usual range of sizes: 2+ pounds to 7+ pounds. There are plenty in the freezer now, but this will be the last batch of roasters for a few months. If you are going to be a very small group for Thanksgiving, a 7 pound roaster may be just what you need. Feel free to contact us at anne@olympiafarm.net if you'd like to check out the large roasters.....they like to hide in the freezer, and we'll get them front and center for you to check out. Roasters are $5.50 per pound, and like the turkeys, spent their lives free-ranging here at the farm.

We will be bringing our steer and one of our humanely-raised veal calves back from the butcher in the next few weeks. We'll let you know the arrival date as soon as we know it ourselves. We sold out of beef in just over three-weeks last time we stocked the freezer, so if you want in on this one, be on the look-out for our next email!

Other things you should know:

The goats are finished giving us milk for the season, and the last batch of cheese is in the sale fridge;

The chickens are laying pretty well, and the sale fridge is stocked with eggs most days;

We just got a new batch of our Olympia Farm goat milk soap back from our soap maker - perfect for holiday gifts!

The wool room is stocked with yarn, patterns, and knitting needles - for you or for a warm and fluffy gift for someone special - you can email anne@olympiafarm.net to set up a visit to the wool room!

We hope to see lots of you at the farm over the holidays, and wish you all a peaceful and healthy Thanksgiving!

Anne and Mark
