November 27, 28 Processing

The November 27, 28 round of processing was headed by the side bought by the Jeff Dahlseng family. They made a morning of it watching the processing and then visiting the cows before getting back to the first performance of the Nutcracker where Jeff plays trombone.

End of the Season

This Friday and Saturday we will process the last of the meat for this year. There are a few orders at the bottom of the list that it looks like will not be filled. Those will go to the top of the list for next year.

The other ray of hope is that we will be preg testing the heifers next week and if any are open we will have one more round of butchering that will be processed around the middle of December.

In the chicken division I thought you might want to see how 150 eggs a day are laid in a mere 20 nests. As you can see, it is with a lot of sharing. Also seen is how water delivery looks when the temperatures are below zero.

These eggs are available under the Tranquility Heights Farm label at the Matanuska Creamery in the Valley and at the Natural Pantry in Anchorage.

Have a happy Thanksgiving.

Meat Customers Meet Cows!

The Bob Ormberg family and their friends went out to visit the cows after they picked up their side of beef. The cows were more interested in the carrots we took for snacks!
