Happy November (almost!)
This Saturday marks the first November market of the season and I am happy to report that while the field has sure slowed down, it is still filled abundantly with hardy fall crops to keep us nourished in the coming weeks + months.
I will have assorted crops for walk up sales!
I will also begin bringing foraged holiday wreathes this week! I have collected and dried many beautiful flowers and foliage throughout the season and have been enjoying assembling them into wreathes and swags to celebrate the season ahead.
Stop by and check them out!
Lastly, I am excited to announce that I will be opening sign ups for my 2024 main season CSA this week! CSA seems to fill up quicker and quicker each year – if you would like to guarantee yourself a full season of abundant harvests, consider joining! Hop on over to my website for additional details (will be published Wednesday November 1st!)
Cheers to good growing!

The Pasturage of Montague
If you missed our turkey tour, I’ll recap for you here: Did I mention that our turkeys are Certified Naturally Grown? They are! Isn’t that cool?! I know people say that turkeys are dumb, or I’ve heard people call them vicious, but I love the way we raise our birds. They are fed certified organic grain on pasture, moved weekly, eat bugs, roost when they feel like it, and follow me around with the most endearing chirring noise. When I move them to a new paddock, they purr. I kid you not. I’m using descriptive language meant for other species because, apparently, gobbling was the only thing people heard when they saw turkeys. But the range of vocalizations is much greater than a gobble and I love their expressiveness! So if your idea of giving thanks is eating a well-loved bird, please do drop me a line. Although we will not be at Sweetwater this weekend, check out our online pre-order form for some deep discounts! Find it here: http://thepasturage.com/order/ Julie
