Hard to believe it's already August! We've (per usual) had a busy summer and not much time to blog. Here's a quick look at some highlights from the last few months around the farm!

In June we hosted a Carroll County Farm Bureau Member Farm Tour & Meeting. We opened the evening with a tour of our property to the nearly 40 attendees and discussed the history of our colonial farm house and how the farm and 30 acres of land has changed in the three decades we've owned it.  

Following the tour, everyone enjoyed a festive dinner under the tent (featuring our chicken and turkey, local eggs from Haines Hill Farm and Free Range Chix Farm, both in Wolfeboro and native strawberries from McKenzie's Farm in Milton/Wakefield.) We lucked out and had great weather, yummy local food and even better company! Check out more photos from the event on our Facebook page.

We once again entered a float in Wolfeboro's Fourth of July Parade. Tom Turkey cruised Main Street and for the first time drove our new "old" farm truck. We all had a great time seeing so many familiar faces!

 

 In addition, there have been a variety of new babies keeping us on our toes! Hard to believe summer will be winding down in just a few short weeks...

It's that time of year! Thanksgiving is a little over a month away and we're taking orders for our locally grown, naturally raised fresh turkeys

We strongly encourage early orders this year, as another turkey farmer in the area has retired and is referring their customers to us.

We work within (3) pounds, with birds available in a few size ranges:
Small: 13 - 17 lbs. Medium: 18 - 24 lbs. and Large: 25+ lbs. See answers to our most frequently asked turkey questions, including what size to order for the number of people you're expecting, cooking and storing instructions and more.


Please call the farm at 539-7838 or e-mail us at noviewfarmorders@gmail.com with the size you want to reserve.
All orders will be confirmed.

The land clearing in the new field continues! Yesterday, on a rainy Saturday we had a "bonfire" to burn some of the brush we've been cutting. There is something about a big fire that attracts a captive audience…!

As summer comes to a close, we've embraced fall and are staying busy!

We are in the process of clearing a 1.5 acre lot on the left side of our property which will connect our back fields to the front and give us much needed pasture for our cows. It's been a long haul but it is really starting to look great! 

My grandson loves checking out the tractor and equipment so I took him on a walk around the farm yesterday during his visit. We enjoyed the warm weather, pulled some carrots out of the garden (one of the few fresh veggies left) for dinner along with some pears off our trees to make a crisp for dessert. Happy Sunday!

This past weekend the farm played host to our grandson's 2nd birthday. The theme of the party was John Deere and David crawled up into the barn loft and pulled out our son Michael's (who's now 30) toy pedal John Deere tractor and trailer he received as a gift from Santa in 1987. David  stored it up there probably 20 years ago for such an occasion! The tractor would be best described now as "vintage" as the paint has faded and maybe showing its age a bit...but it didn't stop a new generation (and some older 'kids') from enjoying it! Maybe older is better?

Like every year, the summer is just flying…how is the end of this week going to be AUGUST?! This month has brought new baby turkeys, a new bull calf, named Rufus (in addition to three heifer calves) and like every year, the usual insane hustle and bustle. 

This weekend we tried to slow down for a bit, take a stroll around the farm  and "capture some July" before it's gone...
