Heritage Thanksgiving Turkeys
Stay tuned for this years heritage breed 'Standard Bronze' Turkey adventures and Thanksgiving turkey ordering. We will start taking pre-orders on Oct. 1st! Our baby poults arrive the first week in May!
Last year we raised one flock of 'Saxony' and 'Silver and White Appleyard' ducks to see how well they fit into our pasture rotation, how well they grew in our climate, and how delicious they would taste. It proved very successful! They are incredible foragers with great personalities and beautiful plumage and so we are raising more this year. We are currently sold out, but will have more ducks for sale in June!
Find all pork cuts at the Saturday Ferry Plaza Farmers Market in San Francisco from 8-2! This year we are featuring the following heritage breeds; Berkshires, Berkshire X Large Black, Red Wattle X Berkshire, Gloucestershire Old Spots, and Mulefoot X Old Spot. We have new piglets on the ground now and are accepting pre-orders for wholes and half hogs.
