To the new people, we have a spreadsheet; when rains come, or harvest is done we will make sausage. I am certain we will make many times before Christmas and at least once before Thanksgiving. Gallon bag/5 pounds is $20; quart bag/1 pound is $5.

Fall 2016

Whew, what a crazy summer we have had. Crazy weather has had us in crazy harvest this year! Last year this time we were finished with cotton but we only started just this Wednesday for this year.
We have ONE more field of butterbeans we HOPE to harvest, and thus fill, the remaining orders. Warm fall and no frost leaves us cautiously optimistic.
