Happy Wednesday All Grubbers!
Fall has arrived, marking one full year of operations at the farm under our family’s stewardship. When we purchased this beautiful piece of land, we wanted to keep everything running as usual so that we could assess the daily work flow, revenues, animal personalities and seasons on the farm. Now that we begin this second year, we want to crank it up, move forward and bring our strengths to the farm.
Our expert friends and county advisors have been helping us and will continue to aid in the restructuring of the business-from the layout of the fields and remodeling of the barns, to the breeding schedules of the animals.
Within the next three years major changes will be occurring! New store, new hog fields, new chicken coups and the biggest project of all…the dairy cow area. We will be building a new milking parlor and enhancing our pasture to improve our dairy girls’ environment. We have decided to focus on finished products including gently pasteurized yogurt and fresh cheese. Raw milk will no longer be available at the farm because our insurance company will no longer cover us for that product. We will be in contact with all of our milk customers to wrap up outstanding contracts.
Due to the scale and nature of the plan we are about to put into play, we have decided to temporarily shut down the on-farm market. We are officially closed as of now, but will open for Farm Tour, October 21st and 22nd. Though we will not be open for the weekends, we will still be taking orders on-line for quarter, half and whole steers, as well as whole hogs. Current CSA customers will continue until completed.
Our Grub Trailer is currently up, running and gaining serious momentum. As most of you know, our background and passion is in cooking, so that is the area of the business that we will concentrate on for the near future. We will continue to raise our own animals and use all of our own delicious farm grown products for the menu items on the Grub Trailer.
We know this is a lot of information to take in at one time. To recap major points…
-The market is no longer open on the weekends, including this weekend
-Farm Tour October 21st and 22nd will be our last meat and egg sale
-The Grub Trailer is very much in business and working hard! We are in Hillsboro on RTE 9, Monday-Friday from 5am-9am, unless booked for another event and still using our own products.
-This is not good-bye; this is I’ll see you when the make-over is done!
We are excited about getting this place whipped into shape and breaking ground on our vision. It is and will continue to be a labor of love as well as an adventure, and we truly hope you come back and see us when we re-open our doors. Thank you for your loyalty and patience…come see us at the Grub Trailer!
Love to all,
The Grange and Grub Crew
