Thank you so much to everyone who came out for our second turkey day. We had a lot of fun showing you the turkeys and sharing with your family what our farm is doing for you and for the birds. We enjoyed answering your questions and appreciated your feedback regarding this process.
We had several children come out and they were really excited to meet their meat. It seems that children introduced to the concept at a young age embrace it openly. One 4 year old even picked out “his turkey” from the bunch. There were many smiles and giggles from the children and I think sighs of relief from their parents that their children were excited not scared for eating an animal they had seen.
So what were the grown up people saying? Well, there were less giggles, more questions and some funny comments:
‘They certainly aren’t cute, but they have some very pretty feathers.’
‘The whole point was for us to understand where our food was coming from. Now we know for a fact.’
‘Wow that’s a big turkey, a yummy, yummy big turkey.’
‘Can you start feeding them some thyme and sage now?’
Oh, what fun people make up our community.
Thank you so much for attending and remember there is one more Turkey Day before the final pick up dates. Everyone is welcome to the final turkey day so “like” us on Facebook or join our mailing list for updates relating to the that and many other farm goings on.
Gotta go soak in the beauty of this September day,
