Dear Katchkie Farm CSA Members,
What with all this spookily warm weather, there is plenty going on at Katchkie Farm to tell you about, even in the depths of December! But first - a theatrical interlude from Farmer Bob:

"Now you see her, now you don't - her new name is Houdini.
"It's 9:30 PM on a Wednesday night. The phone rings and goes to voicemail. The message says, "We saw one of your pigs; they're out and running across the field!" What to do next? We fire up the truck and head down to the pigpen. Sure enough: four pigs are in the pen, one pig is missing.
"It's too dark and too cold to look for the pig now, and the deer fence around the perimeter of the property should hold her in until morning.

"7 A.M. Little Miss Red Pig is in the sheep pen.
9 A.M.: Red Pig is in the chicken pen
11 A.M. Red Pig is missing!
This goes on for the next few hours.

"What is going on? The Sylvia Center crew was away for a few days, and Kristy's son Mark Liem was asked to look after things. Well, he forgot to feed the animals.

"Hungry pigs will wander.

"We grabbed a scoop of grain and tried to lure Miss Piggy back into her pen, but no luck. After a little chasing she found the gap in the fence, and waddled in. It turns out the electric fence wasn't working, and Piggy routed under and out. After a small adjustment, the fence was back on - and OH did they know it. ZAP! Squeeeeeaallllll!"
Our pigs are no longer causing mischief on the farm, as they entered their next stage of life at Hilltown Pork last Wednesday. Like many of our vegetables, these pigs will become beautiful nose-to-tail dishes for  Great Performances' menus. The circle of life is in full play as 2015 draws to a close.

Bob and Kristy are otherwise busy ordering seeds, compost, organic fertilizers, and supplies for the 2016 season. They're also hard at work filling out annual paperwork for NOFA organic certification. Of course, the dynamic farm duo is enjoying a much-deserved later wake up call...

Downstate, Suzannah is preparing for tomorrow's big holiday CSA delivery! With this sudden rush of El Niño-induced warm air, there is plenty to offload from the farm to head to your holiday larders, as well as the Great Performances catering kitchen. She's also starting to plan sales and logistics for the 2016 season. June is never far from her mind!

All of our best wishes for a healthy, tasty, and cozy holiday season!

Bob, Kristy, Suzannah, and Harry
