News from the Farm: Spring 2013
We are very happy to announce that, after several years of searching, Well Fed Farms finally has a permanent home. On Collins Road, west of Sedro Woolley and just a few miles from our former location, we have been fortunate enough to find and purchase a beautiful 10 acre parcel of land with a little farmhouse and a lot of potential.
We feel very privileged to have the opportunity to create a home here and to build a farm that, with work, care, and a little luck, will support our family, benefit our community and nurture the land that sustains it for many years to come. Thank you to everyone who has encouraged and helped us get to this point. We consider ourselves lucky to have such a great foundation to build on and are excited for the future.
This year will be a bit of a transition as we get settled at our new home (that should be the last time we have to say that, though!) but we plan to raise chickens, pigs, and veggies in largely the same manner as last year. For more information on this, follow the link below to our 2013 order form.
A Few Highlights Worth Mentioning:
- The procedure for ordering and picking up chickens will be more or less the same as last year, but there are a few new options in terms of breed and feed preferences. These are detailed in the order form, but please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
- We will be raising 12 pigs this year. They are Berkshire/Duroc crosses from our wonderful breeders Kermit and Theresa. Pigs are available by the whole or half (butchered and wrapped, of course) and should be ready in mid to late October.
- This year marks our first season as participants at the Anacortes Farmers Market. We will be there for the the last winter market on Saturday, April 13th and every Saturday during the regular season, which runs from May 11th to October 26th. We will be selling eggs, fresh veggies and of course chickens. Stop by if you’re in the neighborhood. It’s a great market and we’d love to see you.
- Lastly, another exciting announcement, we will be hatching and selling baby chicks this year! Breeds available will include Amaracaunas, Buff Orpingtons, Plymouth Barred Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, and Speckled Sussexes. We expect to start hatching around the end of April and continuing through the summer. If you are interested in having some backyard layers of your own or would like to introduce some new blood into your existing flock, let us know and we will keep you updated on our progress with this new project.
Have a great spring and if you find yourselves passing through Sedro Woolley, feel free to stop by for a visit.
