Happiest of holidays to you

Hi Farm Friends,

I'm typing this Saturday night, and scheduling it to go out Monday, because tomorrow I'm leaving for a four-day Everglades canoeing trip with my son Hank and his Scout troop. I'm beyond excited, and I'm sure I'll yap about it to you when I return. And I'm super-fortunate to have help with the farm from Eli, Matt, Gowan, Georgea, Jamie, Christy and more, so I can sneak away for a few days. Sunday through Wednesday, it'll be radio silence for me.

It's an abbreviated week anyway, with Christmas falling on Saturday. No St Pete market, and no Meacham weekend market. Meacham Urban Farm will have a Thursday market 2pm to 7pm, and I'll be there with plenty of meats, eggs (yes, lots of eggs. It's happening), and of course veggies. No pre-order for this week, but send me an email if you'd like me to hold something for you for Thursday. And of course, on holiday markets, bring-your-farmer-a-beer is an acceptable practice (belated thanks Carlos for the pre-Thanksgiving sixer!)

Fun farm story: tonight I went to double-check on the meat chickens and the pigs before vacation, and, surprise of surprises, the pigs found a novel way to get out of their woodsy paddock. This time, they pushed under the sturdy chain link fence to visit the neighbor's yard. It took an hour to get them back in, and I did what I could to secure the fence so they won't do it again until Gowan and Eli move them on Monday. But I think pigs can sense a vacation, and they like to make it as stressful as possible. Stinkers. Dean, they're stinkers, these pigs!

Still a New Thing: Bulk Ground Beef Deal! By popular demand, we're going to sell ground beef by the case. Buy a box of the one-pound ground beef packs, 24 total, and get $1 per pound off. That's a savings of $24! Total price $180. If you've got the freezer space, this is a great deal. Reserve one through the store, or email me. I do ask that you pay cash or check for this deal. The credit card fees would dig too deep into these thin margins.

What's in Travis' Car Right Now?

Week eight. All cleaned out after market.

1 cooler, empty
