  Hello!  Just letting everyone know we will be at our Northside, S. Fayette night market and Sewickley markets for 2 more weekends.  They will end the weekend before Thanksgiving.  Feel free to call or email if you would like a specific order put together.    

      We are planning to be at the Pittsburgh Public Market on the strip at its new location on Penn Ave. in the month of December (possibly longer but not sure) on Saturdays between 10 and 3, except the 3rd Saturday of the month.  On the 3rd Saturday of the month from Dec. through March we will be at the Sewickley market at the usual location in the church parking lot.  We are still trying to confirm the time, but will either be 9-11 am or 10-noon.

      Also, for anyone interested in a quarter beef we will be taking one in in the next couple of weeks.  We will have a gap pretty soon of none ready shortly after that.

      Thank you all for your business!

       We have left the Pittsburgh Public Market for now, but want to let everyone know we will be at the Northside Farmer's Market (across from Allegheny General Hospital) on Friday from 3:30-7:30.

       Also, we have 2 beef ready to take in as well as pigs.   Please call or email if you are interested in a 1/4 or more beef, or half or whole pig.   We plan to take the beef in the next week or two but are still taking orders.  

      Thank you!

Hello everyone!   We are now at the Pittsburgh Public Market every Saturday.   If you haven't been there it is located in the strip district...2100 Smallman St.  Hours on Saturday are 9-5.   Stop by and see us!

        Just a quick update that our cattle are now ready.   Also we have

lots and lots of pigs of different ages, so they are almost always ready

to sell.    Thank you to the new mailing list members!    We are much

better at raising animals than navigating the computer so I am still

working on some things.    I hope to put some more details on the

website as far as what cuts of meat are involved in a half or whole

for those who may not be familiar with the breakdown.    Thanks!

Although we provide huts for the sows with lots of clean, dry hay to give birth, some can't help their instincts!   Shawn was checking on a sow who was close to birth time and she was working hard at collecting weeds (wet at this time of year).    She went far and wide and had a big mouth full of weeds but as she approached her hut she no longer had them.  He asked "what happened to your weeds"?   She just snorted.   We are guessing she may have just gotten sidetracked with each trip back.  She may not be the smartest one of the bunch but we do give her credit for her effort!
