Last week, as I was looking at all the vegetables that are still growing, I realized there may be some who would be interested in one more delivery of fresh, organic vegetables before winter comes. My hoophouse is full of greens and I have crops in storage.

Additionally, this is our final meat offer of the year and our lowest prices.

As you will see below, vegetable, meat and bread will be available for pick or Home Delivery. I plan to deliver on Wednesday afternoon, December 6. You can pay online or you may leave money for me to pick up at delivery. 

Here are some things that you may choose:

Box of vegetables - lettuce, napa cabbage, kale, potatoes, sweet potatoes, turnips, and bok choi. $30

Pork Sampler - pastured, organic pork is on sale. You get chops, ham, bacon, roast, sausage, and ribs. $100 for 15 pounds ($6.65 per pound - more than $1 off)

50 pound Pork pack - $300   This is about 1/2 of a hog and you will receive mixed cuts including roasts, chops, sausage, bacon, ham, and ribs. ($6 per pound - $2 off)

Custom Pork Cuts - whole or half hogs which you can customize will be available in January. Email me for details.

Grass Fed Beef Sampler - this is my own beef which I only have in the fall. You get a mix of steaks, roasts, and ground. $100 for 12 pounds ($8.30 per pound)

Whole Frozen Chickens - $16 each, only a few left (about $4 per pound or less).

Brick Oven Sourdough Bread - This is an add-on item if your order veggies or meat. $6 per loaf. Email me so I can send you the varieties available.

Hello Friends of Willow Haven Farm,

We have been working hard all summer and fall to raise healthy animals on pasture.  Since we do not confine animals into buildings, there is extra work involved to keep them safe and healthy through the winter.  We also take extra steps to make sure that the animals eat soy-free organic feed.  One of the many benefits of using organic feed is that we are supporting farmers who are trying to care for their land and who eliminate the use of pesticides and herbicides and chemical fertilizers. We have Pork, Lamb and beef available.

Our pork is on sale now in time for the holidays and this is our only beef for the season. Our delivery day is scheduled for November 21 if you choose home delivery.

  • $100 Pork sampler - 15 pounds of mixed cuts of pork.
  • $100 Sausage Sampler - 15 pounds of mixed sausage including chorizo, loose ground, italian, country, and kielbasa.
  • 50 pound pork pack - $300   This is about 1/2 of a hog and you will receive mixed cuts including roasts, chops, sausage, bacon, ham, and ribs.

Lamb $280 - I only have 2 lambs for sale at this time and they yield 25-30 pounds of meat each. You get standard cuts which include chops, leg, shank, ground, roast, and ribs.

Grass-fed Beef. This is our own beef which we only have once a year. At this point, I'm not sure exactly how much I will have. I'll take a few orders and then you will be on a waiting list.

  • 50 pounds beef - $400  You will receive a mix of cuts including roasts, steaks, ribs, and ground.
  • $100 beef sampler - You will receive 12-13 pounds of mixed cuts including roasts, steaks, ribs, and ground. 

To place your order, please use our website so that we can keep track of your order. Please indicate payment arrangements and how you would like to pick up your order in the Notes window when you order.  We are open for pick up on Saturdays from 10am - 2 pm.

Thank you for your support,

Our Summer CSA members have enjoyed 16 of the 20 weeks of our CSA season. They enjoyed the ability to customize their box each time through our Harvie program.  For the Fall though, we scale back to a simpler CSA model.

After this weekend, bi-weekly members should expect 2 more shares. Weekly members should expect 4 more shares. HOWEVER, because of the ability to change your weeks and customize your schedule your exact remaining deliveries could be different. Please check your harvie account at Harvie.co to find out, especially if you took vacations or needed a make up week at the end of the season.

BUT YOUR SEASON DOESN'T HAVE TO END!

Every year we offer a season extension of 6 more weeks of fall vegetables which continues until mid-December. Because the farm works at slower capacity during the fall and winter we only offer this Fall Season Share for pick up at the Farm. The cost is $150 for 6 weeks Oct. 28 - December 9 and you pick up 6 items each week. Sign up is only on our main Farm Website www.willowhavenfarmpa.com.
 
We hope many of you will join our Late Season CSA, especially because the vegetables keep growing and we have to keep picking them. You might as well eat them! We love to see you during our slower season and we still have the market store shelves stocked with coffee, honey, herbs, ferments, organic meats, cheese & of course, our sourdough bread!

Many members find they enjoy coming to the farm in the fall when The Farmers have more time to chat, the wood stove in our market is blazing, and the Farm Grandma is spinning our Jacob's wool. It is a pleasant farm visit and you never know what new project Reuben will be working on while you are there.

We'll keep farming for you!

Hello Friends of Willow Haven Farm,

It has been quite a while since I placed a group salmon order.  When I place bulk orders, I can get a significant discount.  I order from a family company called Wild for Salmon.  Each July they travel to Alaska and fish for salmon.  This is authentic wild caught salmon - not farmed and not genetically modified.  The prices are much lower than Wegmans.  Please order by September 5.  I expect the delivery on September 11 and you will be able to pick up during that week or on Saturday.  I will not be able to deliver your orders this time.

We also have Soy Free Pastured Pork Available: 100 lb pack, 50 lb pack, and $100 Sampler Pack.  Prices & Order here.

 

Whole salmon fillets - 10 pounds    $140

Sockeye Salmon portions - 10 pounds    $145

Salmon Burgers - 2 per pack - feta dill, spicy, garden style, unseasoned  $8

Smoked salmon - nova (cold smoked), hickory (hot smoked)   $6 per 4 oz pack

Salmon Steaks - bone in 10 pounds     $115

Pacific cod - 10 pounds  $115

Please use our website Farm Store to order so that we can keep track of all the details. Consider paying by invoice/check to avoid the credit card service fee.

Thank you.

Reuben and Tessa DeMaster

Hello friends of Willow Haven Farm,

We have been working hard all winter and spring to raise healthy animals on pasture.  Since we do not confine animals into buildings, there is extra work involved to keep them safe and healthy through the winter.  We also take extra steps to make sure that the animals eat soy-free organic feed.  One of the many benefits of using organic feed is that we are supporting farmers who are trying to care for their land and who eliminate the use of pesticides and herbicides and chemical fertilizers.  As a result, the products from these animals are higher than animals not raised with organic methods. 

Right now, we have a good supply of organic meats available for purchase.  We hope that you will consider buying some farm fresh, organic meat from us so that we don't have to store so much in our freezers.  Our pork inventory is especially high right now which means that we have spent a lot of money on feed.  We keep the prices as low as possible for people and we make very little on the meat.

Whole frozen chickens - $4.50 per pound. Available Now.

$100 Chicken sampler - minimum of 24 pounds of chicken. Available Now.

$100 Pork sampler - 12 pounds of mixed cuts of pork. Available Now.

50 pound pork pack - $375   This is about 1/2 of a hog and you will receive mixed cuts including roasts, chops, sausage, bacon, ham, and ribs. Available Now.

100 pound pork pack - $750  This is a whole hog and you will receive mixed cuts including roasts, chops, sausage, bacon, ham, and ribs. Available Now.

Duck - $6.00 per pound. Limited Available Now. More coming soon.

Lamb $300 - I only have 3 lambs for sale at this time and they yield about 30 pounds of meat each.  I expect to have more in December.

To place your order, please use our website so that we can keep track of your order. Please indicate payment arrangements and how you would like to pick up your order in the Notes window when you order.  We are open for pre-paid meat pickup Mon - F 8:30 am - 4 pm in addition to our Open Market Day on Saturdays from 10am - 2 pm.

Thank you for your support,

Don't let a whole chicken intimidate you.  Our organically raised, pastured chicken is excellent, especially when prepared correctly.  Prepared this way, you will have delicious chicken for sandwiches or other recipes like chicken salad and casseroles. One of our family's favorites, this recipe is tender, juicy and flavorful every time.

Spicy Rapid Roast Chicken
originally from allrecipes.com

1 whole WHF chicken ( 3- 4 lb)
1 Tablespoon butter, softened
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon dried oregano
¼ teaspoon paprika
¼ teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F
  2. Rinse chicken in cold water; pat dry
  3. Put chicken in baking pan that is just fits in.  Rub with softened butter.
  4. Mix salt and seasonings together.  Sprinkle generously over chicken and rub on inside.
  5. Roast chicken in preheated oven for 20 minutes.  Lower the oven to 400 degrees F and continue roasting 40 minutes.  Let cool 15 minutes. Serve.
Whole Chickens are available at the On Farm Market for $4.50/ lb.  Chicken Samplers are the most economical way to buy:
23 - 24 lbs of chicken for $100.
