Thanks to all for a great 2018!

25 Nov

Fire damage has been repaired, our laying flock has been replaced and is producing plenty of eggs, our turkey harvest, though small in number, was a great success.  We are looking forward to again raising a SMALL number of turkeys for 2019, having held over two toms and 3 hens.  Since our hens should lay more eggs than we need for our harvest, we plan to offer poults in spring starting as soon as the hens begin to lay.  We will post more on our Facebook page around February.



Fire…and the aftermath

29 Apr


A few weeks ago, we had a fire in our turkey coop that killed all the poults we had started for Thanksgiving, and several adult birds as well. As a result, in order to make repairs, we have liquidated our layer flock temporarily so that we can move the remaining turkeys and make repairs to the turkey coop. We are hatching more turkeys, but will have a limited number available this year, so please place orders early. We have ordered replacement pullets to arrive in late June, and will have eggs daily starting in early July. Please stay tuned for further updates.


Spring is on the way!

05 Mar

Wow, how time flies.  It’s almost Spring again, and the hens are all busy at work laying eggs.

On March 18, I am expecting 11 turkey poults.  On March 26, another 5 turkey poults, and on April 1, 6 more.  Every Sunday I’ll be putting more eggs into the incubator, and will be hatching plenty of poults for your own backyard flocks, 4-H shows, and Thanksgiving dinners.  Most will be Narragansett and some will be a Narragansett color variant and a very few will be Bronze.

Over the course of the season, I’ll be offering assorted backyard chicks.  All are sired by an Ayam Cemani over a variety of hens from my project pens, so will have black faces and combs in varying degrees for an exotic look.  These are novelty birds that don’t meet any breed standards, and will be priced accordingly.  Right now, the hens in this pen include Blue Fibro Araucana, Ohiki, and Blue Appenzeller Spitzhauben.   Straight run chicks $5 each starting in late March, photos to follow.



Poults and chicks

13 May

We have some surplus chicks growing out in our brooders. Black Ameraucana (from Blue/Black/Splash pen), two Ohiki true bantams, one Exchequer Leghorn, a few Appenzeller Spitzhauben, and an assortment of brown, green, olive and blue egg laying crosses sure to bring variety to your flock. $5 and up while they last!

We also have turkey poults from our Walnut Hill Farm line. Based on Narragansett and Standard Bronze lines, I selected for good size and sustainable production for more than 6 years. These birds free range and roost like smaller color selected heritage but put a real meal on the table when the time comes. Toms average 25 lb at 7 months, hens 18 lb at 7 months. $10 each. Incubator season is coming to an end so reserve yours now.



Chicks and poults

11 Mar

We have chicks!

Available now and through spring we will be offering chicks and turkey poults. Uncommon breeds like Serama, Appenzeller Spitzhauben, Ayam Cemani, Sulmtaler, Naked Necks and our “backyard gems”, mixed breed birds crossed to make a rainbow of egg colors including white, cream, tan, brown, chocolate, blue, aqua, green and olive.

Our turkeys include full heritage selections as well as our popular meat line that we offer for Thanksgiving each year.

Varieties vary by hatch, and hatching weekly.


Last chance for turkeys until next fall!

22 Dec

We have plenty of fresh turkeys available DECEMBER 23, 2016 for your Christmas or anytime enjoyment. These are smaller birds from 10-20 pounds.

After December 23, I will be further processing the leftover turkeys into assorted cuts. I can also cut yours into drumsticks, thighs, wings and breasts if you prefer. To ensure freshness I will be freezing the cut up birds immediately after packaging. I can also debone and grind them into fresh ground turkey on request before they are frozen.

Extra turkeys!

We always hold back a couple of turkeys in case anyone needs a little more turkey on the table, or if any aren’t up to standards.  This year, we didn’t need any substitutes, so we have a few small turkeys available for immediate sale.  These are great for intimate dinners, to try a heritage turkey along side a common one, or for frying or smoking.

#35 is a very petite hen, at 4.9 lbs.  Perfect for dinner for one or two!

#34 is a petite hen, at 6.7 lbs.  Dinner for 3 or 4.

#33 is a hen, at 7.8 lbs.  Dinner for 4.

These are available today!  They are now frozen but will thaw in time for Thanksgiving as they are small.  Email to hold yours for pickup today.
