Carversville Farm Round Up: August 24

Let’s talk turkey!

Our Heritage Turkeys heading home for the evening.

It may be the end of August, but we already have Thanksgiving on the brain, do you?  This year we have several Heritage types and the larger Broad Breasted turkeys available for purchase! Broad Breasted Turkeys ($6/lb), are a large breed and what you would see typically in the supermarket; lots of white meat like many of us know and love. They will weigh in between 16 and 21 pounds. The Heritage birds ($10/lb) are a little smaller, have more dark meat and will dress between 7 and 13 pounds. A $40 deposit is required to hold your turkey. To reserve a turkey, please contact Stephanie at stephanie@carversvillefarm.org.

it’s not goodbye, it’s see you soon!

This week, we said goodbye to Khalil, our veggie intern.  It’s time for him to return to Delaware Valley University to continue his studies.  Lucky for us, that’s just a few minutes away so he can still pop in and help harvest a few rows with our other volunteers on Saturdays!  From day one, Khalil really immersed himself in our veggie world. He especially thrived working the farm stand every Saturday morning!  We wish him all the best.
