Hello Friends of Maple Wind Farm,
The grass is green and the animals are loving it! Our spring calf numbers are up to 11 and more on the way. This years lambing was long and challenging but we have about 70 bouncing leaping lambs enjoying spring and mothers milk! Soon our layer hens (all 475 of them) will be roaming in search of some great bugs and cleansing the pastures while following behind our sheep flock.
Please note! This Saturday (May 12th) is the first outside summer farmers market at City Hall Park in Burlington. Come find us at our seasonal spot adjacent to the fountain. We’ll have the grill going for sausages and local hot dogs and maybe a few other surprises to fill your stomach. Take home a delicious grass fed steak or some pasture raised pork for your grill. We’ll be there every Saturday through October!
Other markets this season: Shelburne – Saturdays 9-1pm begins May 26 AND Richmond – Fridays 3:30-7pm (we apologize to our Middlebury customers that we will not be at the Saturday Middlebury market this season)
Save the date! All welcome to our ANNUAL OPEN HOUSE AND FARM TOURS. Sunday June 3rd from 10-2. Come join us at Maple Wind Farm for some fun on the farm! There will be grilled items, farm products for sale and a great time for all to roam and see the farm. Our 12th annual!
Chickens 2012. We are not partnering with the VYCC this year so as to focus on our operation which will include our own Pasture Raised Broilers. Reserve yours today! We will be raising 1/3 of the birds on organic grain so let us know if that is your preference.
Any questions about purchasing our products email Beth. (email@example.com)
Thats all for now, I hope we see you at an upcoming market! Let the summer begin!
and PLEASE COME TO OUR OPEN HOUSE JUNE 3!
All the best, eat well,
Beth and Bruce
