Where’s My Cheese??
We anticipate having cheese back in the store by late summer, so the countdown is on!
The best things in life are worth waiting for, right?
A generous person donated their COVID-19 stimulus check to Jako Farm so that we could pass on nutrient-dense food to those who have been most affected by COVID-19. I know a number of our Jako Farm members have been sick, lost jobs, or made the hard choice to close a small business.
Jako Farm has decided to match this donation. If you or someone you know has been deeply affected by the pandemic, we would like to donate 10 pounds of ground beef.
There is a button on the tablet in the farm store that reads COVID-19 Relief. Please press that button and take 10 pounds of ground beef from the farm store freezer.
Please pick up the meat by February 28th. No questions asked, but we do need the transaction to be recorded in the tablet.
Chicken House Drama
We’ve had a little drama out in the hen house again. No, this time it’s not the bald eagle.
In the last month, our newest batch of hens started laying, but production was not picking up as quickly as normal.
With the cold weather last week, we decided to gather eggs in the morning and afternoon. And you know what we found?? A beautiful nest of about 45 eggs UNDER the chicken house. Mr. Opossum or one of his friends must have been getting a very tasty nighttime snack. Those eggs were never there in the mornings when we moved the chicken house. So, yes, we continue to gather eggs twice a day and our inventory is increasing.
P.S. New Product Alert
We have a new product coming to the farm store and I can’t wait to tell you about it next week!
