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 Oct 6, 2019
We have a new crop of swiss chard, marvelous large succulent leaves. Seems when you grow plants with larger spacing or they selfseed where they want to be, they grow better. Try and see.
Other greens: collards, kale, chicory, parsley.
Herbs: thyme, dill, basil, oregano, sage, tarragon, cicely, lovage. all fresh, piced to order.
Eggs: still three for two, or $5/doz.
Meats: beef steaks on special, 15% off. 20lb mixed pack best buy.
Pork: chops and roasts, bones and lard
Chicken: stewing hens.
Is anyone ready to place order for half or quarter beef? when I have two, I’ll take the animal to butcher.
