This page contains news, event information, and other items added by myself, the intrepid farmer-in-process at Old 99. I send out a message every week, but most are set with a delete date about two weeks later. I archive some of the posts if they have content other than weekly availability of produce and meat.
You can send me questions too, which if they are of a general nature, I can post to this Old99 blog.
Old 99 farm, week of May 28 2017
Ever heard of the ‘marshmellow experiment’ and Walter Mischel? He’s famous for his insights about how humans learn delayed gratification. see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0b3SWsjWzdA&t=15s for one of many youtube videos. Very relevant to current public policy direction around abrupt climate disruption.
Lots of greens and eggs, meats and yes fresh pork, I’m getting the meat back from the butcher today wednesday. If you ordered a side, you can pick up friday. Beef will be here next week.
I’ll be cutting hay as soon as next week and would very much like help moving it to the barn. Any volunteers for a couple hours?
The Milk Injunction case is in court in Newmarket now. I went on Monday. You can read a description of events here. Decision not handed down yet.
