We are halfway through the season, 9 weeks left until we close the doors for the winter. So far we have had a great year! We have an awesome all female work crew who work so hard and have fun at the same time. We have freezers this year to keep your birds chilled (depending on size some get partially frozen) until you arrive. No more rushing around trying to bag birds when you arrive.
On the growing front, we had a slow start with a mix up in feed from the factory and ended up throwing away about 2 tons of feed. How does a person get rid of 2 tons of food, well you dig a BIG hole in the back yard and dump it in. So, we are back on track and if the weather could stay in the 20's that would be helpful. We have about 500 birds growing nicely for winter sales. Turkeys are looking great for October. My next post will be end of the year... see you all in 9 weeks. Josee
