Raw Milk Seminar – Nov 19

I had the opportunity to meet and have lunch with Charlotte Smith, the organizer of this event, at the Wise Traditions Conference last week.  She also spoke at the Chapter Leaders meeting, addressing the reasons for her creating the Oregon Raw Milk Producers Association.  It was very moving and inspiring.  I would like to encourage everyone to attend one of these events.

The Oregon Raw Milk Producers Association and the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund are presenting two seminars on raw milk in Oregon, one right here locally in Junction City!

Plan early for your farm-fresh, pasture fed, hormone and antibiotic free holiday celebrations.  Our turkeys are raised on green grass and lots of Willamette Valley bugs to produce the most delicious and healthy holiday meals. These birds usually dress between 12 and 30 lbs. and are available for pick-up a few days prior to Thanksgiving for fresh turkeys!  Price is $5.00/lb for birds under 14 lbs and we bring the price down to $4.00/lb for birds up to 14 lbs and over.  Price is based on pick up at the farm.  Please add $.25/lb to pick your fresh turkey up at a handy Eugene location, to be determined.
We raise a limited number of these specialty birds and they go fast on a first-come first-serve basis, so order your fresh holiday turkey early!  To reserve your turkey, please send a $5.00 check made out to “Lake View Farm”.

Thank you,
The Walton Family

Pastured Poultry in Southern Oregon

This comes to us from a local farmer:

 

Hi Lisa, Hensel Family Farms raised pastured poultry in Rogue River this season.  You can see more here www.henselfamilyfarms.com

The poultry is processed in a ODA licensed facility at the farm. Happy to provide more information to your group as needed. If there was a group order we would be happy to deliver them to Eugene. Winter is coming and he will likely be sold out by the end of October.

If anyone would like to coordinate a group order, our WAPFEugene list would be a great place to do it.

Pasture-Raised Chickens Available

This comes to us from one of our local Eugene Chapter members:

We are they Dealy Family from Lorane.  We live on a 22-acre farm w/ milk goats, beef cows, meat rabbits & an assortment of poultry.

We have raised meat chickens for ourselves for 7 years & this year decided to raise a batch to sell.  The chickens are pasture-raised to give them access to lots of bugs & grass.  Their feed is certified organic.  The water is from a pure spring.  We live next to an organic farm; their are no commercial farms in the area that use chemicals.

These chickens are Red Broilers, which are slower growing than the standard Cornish Cross.   We plan to butcher on Sat. June 23.  The birds will be available after that for  $4.75/lb. bagged & frozen.  They will be about 4 lbs. each.  We have 24 available.

If this goes well, we will consider doing it again in the fall.  If you have questions or suggestions, please call Elaine at 541.942.6914.  ~~ We also have fresh eggs, raw goat milk, organ meats, chicken feet & butchered rabbit for sale.
