Hey, it's my birthday today and I am now 39. Holy cats, how cool is that?! I'll be celebrating by having a pretty normal day and seeing if I can get my hands on a sweet treat.
To extend the celebration, I want to offer an early bird sign up for both meat and turkey shares. This is an on farm chicken and or turkey share pick up. The first processing date for the chickens will be around June 20th. The turkeys will be ready sometime on early October. I am offering $.50 off each pound. Instead of $4.50/pound it's now $4.00. The deposit of $10 will remain the same. Chickens usually average 4-6 pounds, so costs average in that $20.00 ballpark with the subtraction of the $10.00 deposit.
The same goes for turkey shares. Instead of $6.00/lb I'm offering $5.50/lb and with the same $25.00 deposit. Turkeys can average 10-15 pounds so cost around $65 per bird minus the deposit. I also plan on raising a heritage breed turkey called Chocolate Turkeys. I have raised them in the past and they are wonderful birds!
Another aspect I offer with on farm poultry processing is the opportunity for YOU to be part of this process. I have had newbies and regulars at each processing time. And really, the more the merrier. I'm happy to teach you the ropes and you get to see exactly how your bird was raised and handled. You are also welcome to participate on whatever level you feel comfortable. If it's jumping right in, watching from the sidelines, or just picking up your birds after processing is done.
All of my animals are on pasture rotation, including poultry. They get a new paddock at least once a week if not more. When processing day happens on the farm, myself and a team of people harvest and process each bird and let them cool in a tank of ice cold water. We then weigh and bag each bird for YOU to take home and put in your freezer. No middle person and as transparent as you can be!
This offer will end in ON WEEK! That's Sunday February 2nd. Sign up soon so you don't miss this birthday discount.
Thank you for the support!
A pretty short and sweet blog post for this round. Over the weekend I have been working on updating social media and website information. Check out the list of newly updated sites and goat and goat milk soap related items.
Meet the EB Ranch Herd! I have ALL the san clemente island goat breeding animals up and listed with pictures and pedigrees.
Breeding Plans and Kidding Dates. Pretty self explanatory. Though I go over why I'm breeding who to who and discuss healthy breeding plans.
San Clemente Island Goats for Sale. FYI, I don't plan on selling any SCIG's in 2020. I have hopes of bringing in some new stock to improve on the meat quality of the goats. Then I plan on having a closed herd afterward. I will have enough genetic diversity on my farm to keep in closed for a very long time. I just really want to take this year to scrutinize and work on improving my breeding plans.
Last is my Etsy Page and business facebook page. I have completely updated and refreshed my etsy page. Etsy is just another avenue I use to gain attention to the goat milk soap I make. I only sell wholesale and monthly subscriptions through etsy. On my business facebook page I updated the "shop now" button to take people directly to this website. I'm still debating if I want to sell soap through the shop option on facebook. It's just another area to manage sales, but it's also an easy option for people to buy.
In the future look for on farm gatherings and classes on EB Ranch. I have a soap making class scheduled at the Amery Farm Table Foundation on February 15th. Tickets are $20 and the class will be about 2 hours long.
Personally I have been enjoying this fairly mild winter. I go for walks in the woods, and get caught up on dorky cartoon and t.v series! Hope y'all have been having a good winter season as well!
Thank you for the support!
