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. Now we get to wait on Daisy, who looks like she’ll pop anytime too.

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

Friday, June 27, 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m – Farm to Fork Market at Normandy Farm (79th & Marsh Road) – We’ll have eggs and some pastured pork. Betsy’s Kitchen will be bringing granola, granola bars, Paleo Carrot Cake, Paleo bread, and Paleo Almond Delight Bars. Betsy will also continue to bring her Guinea Girl lotions, body butter, herbal salves, and lip balms.

Saturday, June 28, 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m – Zionsville Farmers’ Market (Main St. & Hawthorne) – We’ll have eggs and some pastured pork. Betsy’s Kitchen will be bringing granola, granola bars, Paleo Carrot Cake, Paleo bread, and Paleo Almond Delight Bars. Guinea Girl products will not be sold at this market.

We won’t be selling at the Decatur Township Farmers’ Market (5106 S. High School Road) but please visit anyway.

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

I know I missed a post last week. Besides being crazy busy (I know. Who isn’t?), I’ve been waiting for Shelby to pop some kids. Two weeks ago we were looking at her and saying “Any day now” but she just keeps holding on and getting wider and wider. How many does she have in there? Maybe next week we’ll know.

Our morning ritual is nothing like My Morning Ritual. Ours includes two Full Circle Farm eggs or egg whites topped with either Fermenti Artisan or Borre Bothers ferment. Add a fresh smoothie or a glass of “fresh” milk. This morning I also added a homemade granola bar. Follow everything with a mug of organic tea or coffee. Each item is available for less than $1. What’s your morning ritual?

I’ve decided we are going to start a new exercise program on the farm. You can get your strength training through carrying 50 pound bags of feed and 5 gallon buckets of water. You’ll get your cardio traipsing through the field, running from incoming hail storms, or swinging a corn knife at the thistles. You can complete your yoga routine or meditation in the peace of the field near the animals or underneath the willow tree. You’ll build character exercising in the heat, cold, rain, sun, and snow.

The fee for the program will be $10 per week. The payment of the fee must be through the purchase of items produced on Full Circle Farm. Participation will be at your own pace. Coaching and goal-setting will be available as needed. We won’t promise that you will become buff and muscular but your participation will open the door to a healthful lifestyle and allow you to be part of the process of the farm and your food.

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

Friday, May 30, 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m – Farm to Fork Market at Normandy Farm (79th & Marsh Road) – We’ll have lots of eggs and pastured pork. Betsy’s Kitchen will be bringing granola, granola bars, and Paleo Almond Delight Bars. Betsy will also continue to bring her Guinea Girl lotions, body butter, herbal salves, and lip balms.

Saturday, May 31, 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m – Zionsville Farmers’ Market (Main St. & Hawthorne) – We’ll have lots of eggs and pastured pork. Betsy’s Kitchen will be bringing granola, granola bars, and Paleo Almond Delight Bars. Guinea Girl products will not be sold at this market.

This week we will be participating in the GROW LOCAL ROOTS! event at the Indianapolis City Market Plaza from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. This event is organized by the Indy Action Group and will precede the March Against Monsanto. These events are about more than local food and anti-corporate big food. These events are about food sovereignty.

Regardless of your stance on organic or GMO foods, we should all have the opportunity to make that choice for ourselves. Yet, in 2011, a Wisconsin judge determined that we do not have a fundamental right to choose the foods we produce and consume. Just this week, the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) announced it will file a lawsuit against Vermont to overturn their recently passed food labeling law. The GMA, in conjunction with Monsanto, has worked against similar laws in 30 other states. It is our right to choose!

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

Friday, May 23, 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m – Farm to Fork Market at Normandy Farm (79th & Marsh Road) – We’ll have lots of eggs and pastured pork. Betsy’s Kitchen will be bringing granola, granola bars, and Paleo Almond Delight Bars. Betsy will also continue to bring her Guinea Girl lotions, body butter, herbal salves, and lip balms.

Saturday, May 24, 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m – Zionsville Farmers’ Market (Main St. & Hawthorne) – We’ll have lots of eggs and pastured pork. Betsy’s Kitchen will be bringing granola, granola bars, and Paleo Almond Delight Bars. Guinea Girl products will not be sold at this market.

Saturday, May 24, 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m – GROW LOCAL ROOTS! Marketplace (Indianapolis City Market, 222 E. Market) – We’ll have lots of eggs and pastured pork. Betsy’s Kitchen will be bringing granola, granola bars, and Paleo Almond Delight Bars. Betsy will also bring her Guinea Girl lotions, body butter, herbal salves, and lip balms.

Spring is hatching time. We had hoped our birds would hatch their own this year and we could hatch a few extras in the incubator. Unfortunately, something is still in the barn. We lost an entire duck nest and chicken nest right as they would have been hatching. There were no signs of eggs, shells, or babies. I suspect our villain is a rat or ‘possum living in the barn. Now that no one is nesting in the barn, the dogs have free reign of the area to root out the culprit.

We don’t give up though. We did manage to steal some turkey eggs and have five survivors from yesterday’s incubator hatch. We also set 28 guinea eggs to hatch with June’s full moon. (The guineas and turkeys seem to be having their own issues.)

We picked up 200 chickens today at the local elevator too. That makes 300 broilers growing up for our summer markets. That’s a good thing since we are now sold out of chicken. The next batch will be ready late July.

This week we will only be at the Farm to Fork Market at Normandy Farms. Come see us Friday, May 16, 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at 7802 Marsh Road. We’ll have lots of eggs and pastured pork. Betsy’s Kitchen will be bringing granola, granola bars, and Paleo Almond Delight Bars. Betsy will also continue to bring her Guinea Girl lotions, body butter, herbal salves, and lip balms.

The Zionsville Farmers’ Market opens Saturday, May 17 at Main and Hawthorne. We will not be there this week. The Farmers will be attending the Farmers’ daughter’s graduation from Purdue University. We will be there each Saturday beginning May 24.

Plan ahead for the 24th. We will also be at the inaugural Grow Local Roots event at the Indianapolis City Market Plaza from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. This is sponsored by the Indy Action Group and will precede the March Against Monsanto.

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

What happened to spring? A certain farmer was enjoying the moderate temperatures of spring and then all of the sudden, BAM, straight to summer. The high temperature on Full Circle Farm this afternoon was 86 degrees. It likely won’t last long though. Oh, and the other farmer, she doesn’t seem to mind the warmer temperatures.

Don’t forget to take the time to enjoy your favorite spring flowers. I remembered this year and the breeze kept blowing their wonderful scent to me as I worked in the barnyard tonight.

Don’t forget. The Farm to Fork Market at Normandy Farms has shifted to its summer hours. Visit us Friday, May 9, 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. You may have to look for us in the greenhouse if the rain gets too heavy. We’ll have lots of eggs, pastured pork, and a few pastured chickens. Betsy’s Kitchen will be bringing granola, granola bars, and Paleo Almond Delight Bars. Betsy will also continue to bring her Guinea Girl lotions, body butter, herbal salves, and lip balms.

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