Description

An egg share consists of 1 dozen eggs per week.A lamb share consists of approximately 10 pounds of lamb, either weekly, biweekly, or monthly. The cuts included in a lamb share are ground lamb, stew meat, chops, and roasts. A holiday turkey is also included with each lamb share.

At St. Brigid's Gate Farm, our animals are pasture-raised. The only feed we give are morning and evening treats, which keep the animals coming into the barnyard so that we can count them and make sure they are all OK. In the winter and when the summer heat is high, we set out hay if the grass isn't doing well. The poultry get a bit more grain in the winter due to the reduction in the number of bugs available for them to eat.

At this time, we have 2 Buff Orpingtons laying hens, 5 dozen Barred Rocks laying hens, too many roosters from the last batch of chicks, 200 broiler chicks, 6 Regal Red turkeys (heritage breed), 6 Harvest Gold turkeys (cross between Regal Red and Black Spanish heritage breeds), 2 Black Spanish cross turkeys, 3 white broad-breasted turkeys, 95 turkey poults, 8 head of Irish Dexter cattle, hereford-cross calves (for beef - SOLD!), 8 goats, 3 dozen sheep (some look like lambing will start in about a month), 3 horses, 2 dogs, and 6 barn cats.
