The Huffington Post listed 25 foods to eat before you die. Well it just so happens that if you swing by R and C Dairy and Farmstead this weekend you will be able to cross one or two off of your list! The list is very specific, fresh picked strawberries from the farmers field. No supermarket berries count. And if the Farmers Wife has been on the ball, home made pimento cheese will be available also.....another choice tidbit on the list. As the weather seems to be calming a bit, and the hint of a new season approaching, the farm is slowly gearing up for the upcoming planting season. The seed lists have been started, it has been decided where each specific crop is going to go. The Does that are going to kid in the Spring are starting to pooch. The Does that have been milked through the winter are slowing down a bit, getting a little antsy, as they each come into season and anticipate their rendevous with Don Juan. The Farmers Son has become an expert on Caprine PMS. The Farmer and Son brought all of the milk cows up last evening to do do a pregnancy check. Not quite as easy as tinkeling on a stick, but with a blood test, the results are pretty accurate, we will know in a couple of days the outcome. The cow and goat milk supply has held pretty steady, but as our demand has increased, we are going to have to rethink our *no more* mindset and look for some competent help. Another set of hands makes a big difference. Our projections for the new year include the U-pick strawberry season starting the first of April, the CSA season starting around the end of April, and the Farmers Market in Denton the first of May. We will start taking applications for the CSA toward the end of February. More information will be posted as we get closer to time. As for now, the market has milk, honey, ground beef, baked goods, dried goods, essential oil products, goat milk soap, preserves, some fresh picked strawberries,........ a little this and that. MARKET HOURS: Friday and Saturday from noon until 4:00. Special appointments can be made throughout the week for dairy pickup. From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!!!
