This week is the five year anniversary of Full Circle Farm.  In five short years, we have grown from a brown field of corn stubble to a green field of trees and lush pasture. We started that fall with four chickens, four sheep, four cats and one puppy and have grown to permanent residents of 75 chickens, 21 sheep, four goats, three cows, two pigs, eight cats, two dogs, and several guineas, turkeys, and ducks. Full Circle Farm is also the “seasonal” residence of additional chickens, turkeys, guineas, ducks, lambs, beef cattle, and pigs.

We couldn’t have made it this far without the assistance of various student groups, farm interns, and of course our loyal customers. With your support, our products are found in season at a local restaurant and three local farmers’ markets. We look forward to celebrating many more anniversaries with you.

This week, we will be participating in the following markets:

Friday, August 29, 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m – Farm to Fork Market at Normandy Farm (79th & Marsh Road) – We’ll have eggs, pastured pork, and pastured chicken.  Guinea Girl lotions, body butter, herbal salves, and lip balms will also be available.

Saturday, August 30, 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m – Zionsville Farmers’ Market (Main St. & Hawthorne) – We’ll have eggs, pastured pork, and pastured chicken.  Guinea Girl products will not be sold at this market.

As always, we also sell our eggs and grass-fed meats at the farm.

Surprise!

We came home from a day of sending our son off to college and found this little lady prancing around the yard with her brood.  We didn’t even know she had a nest.  Hopefully there’s a few more surprises in the weeks to come since our turkey hens have mysteriously disappeared recently.

We’re back in pork, in every way. We picked up our butchered pork from This Old Farm and have plenty to sell. We also bought five new piglets. These piglets will be as pastured as pastured can be. They were farrowed on pasture and will be raised on pasture. Two of them are gilts that we hope to breed for our own pastured pigs.

Is not like the other. Can you spot the oddball? We’ve had troubles with the birds hatching their own eggs this year. We have managed to incubate some of our own turkeys, guineas, and ducks though. Last week we hatched five ducks. We’ll probably save these to grow our duck flock next year.

They’re Here!

Farmer Betsy has been sharing pics with our Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/fullcircle.farm.5) friends so I thought I should share them on the website too. Shelby had her kids, one doe and one billy. They were born on Wednesday and named Mark and Megan, after my stepfather and our niece, who celebrated birthdays on the same day.
