You can get the hottest sauces from our peppers right here at B&Z Barbecue sauces. I could deliver sauce orders with my weekly Fort Wayne visits.

If anyone is interested in any of the extreme heat peppers, message me. Available in very small quantities, and waiver must be signed for some of them. Dragon's Breath is 2.48 million Scovills, (8,000 in a jalapeno)!

Feed mill fail. Opened this bag of chicken starter, all powder, clumpy, and smells rancid. Thankfully the 2nd bag is ok. But now I have to make a long trip to return it and get replacements. They closed the mill that was on our travel route and now it has to be a separate trip close to the same distance. Maybe it's time to find a new mill.

Anyone interested in jalapeños? I have Goliath(extra large) and Mucho Nacho (extra hot). Volume pricing.

A few months ago, I got a smokin' hot deal on some hen chicks no one wanted. A mixed flock of several breeds. As they matured, realized some are Leghorns. What this means is, *gasp*, there soon will be white eggs in customers' dozens. No difference, all fed the same great feed.

There will be a temporary reduction in egg production as we replace 1 of the laying flocks with pullets that should start laying within the month.

Limping duck this morning. Noticed she had something stuck to her leg. Caught her, wrapped her in a towel and snipped this off. String wrapped 1x around her leg with a piece of wire attached. No injury to her leg, had not cut in or cut off circulation. Crisis averted.

Anyone interested in cucumbers for pickling? 20# for $30. Lesser amounts for $2/#. Can be eaten fresh as well. Need to get them no later than Monday. I will be in Fort Wayne tomorrow afternoon.

Advance notice: there may not be turkeys from CAF this year. Due to avian flu concerns, hatcheries are limiting hatch and stopping early. At this time we may not be able to acquire broad breasted whites. In addition, our main processor is closing in August for an indefinite period while they move the operation to a new location. Add to that the rising cost of feed, which will force us to raise prices, potentially out of customer's budgets. We may have to sit this year out. Waiting for info from our poultry provider. Will keep you updated.

Exciting announcement! We will be growing and fabricating for Jas.Townsend and Sons, an 18th century re-enactors' supply house. What, you ask? Gourd bowls, water bottles, and canteens. We are fans of Townsend's products YouTube vids. We are initially outsourcing, as t will be a year til we can have gourds dried to craft with.

It was reported today that egg prices are up and there's a shortage ahead of Easter. Well, Creakey Acres Farm has no shortage! The ducks have been laying full force, and plenty of chicken eggs, still at last year's prices.

2am and Sassy had just a head out, no feet (usually come out w/feet under chin.) I had to go in and rotate his shoulders and pull the legs out one at a time and then pulled him right out. Mom and baby rebounded fast, mom cleaned him like a champ, drank her recovery water, and let him nurse many times over the next 1 1/2 hours. Usually that means she's done. We went to bed, and sadly, 3 hours later when Scott went to check, she had delivered a 2nd and left it. Possibly was stillborn because of the difficult delivery of the 1st, and born so ling after the 1st. 1 is better than none, it's sad, but that's life on the farm. Thinking of naming the ram lamb Corky because he was stuck like a cork.

Godiva swiftly had twins this am, girl and boy. Boy having a rough start as for some reason he got cold fast. Mom was attentive, not rejecting. Now inside and warmed up, has had mom's colostrum. Will try to return him to mom shortly. Send good MOJO our way, please and thank you. UPDATE: boy warmed up, took mom's colostrum from a bottle, and after a rest, put him with Godiva, she took him back (oldest ewe and best mom). He has since nursed her and is holding his temp. Had to use the blow dryer on both of them, too much for mom to do alone in 25 degrees. Now holding their own.

News from the farm: We are making a change in our produce production. We will no longer be participating in farmer's markets. I mentioned this before, but we have made the commitment to do this after having good pepper production in 2021.
We have paired with B&Z BBQ and hot sauces to provide them with the peppers for their flavorful hot sauces. We will be planting most of our garden in many varieties of peppers with varying levels of heat. Their products are for sale online. Www.bzbbqsauce.com

Teresa now works away from the farm part-time. Please give extra time and patience when requesting. Will get to you ASAP.

12/05/2021

Out of our control, the processor has delayed our date to 20th, so I won't be able to deliver turkeys til Tuesday the 21st, or 22nd. Monday pm pickup at the farm is also possible. Teresa has a new part-time job away from the farm so the deliveries will be in later afternoons. And we still have additional turkeys for sale.

11/28/2021

Christmas turkeys are now available to reserve. They will be ready for pickup at the farm on December 18, and I will be delivering on Sunday, December 19. Please contact via private message to reserve.

Ready to take reservations for chickens ready 3rd eek of October, deposit $5/ ea. Scott has had flax seed added to the blend to increase the Omega-3 content in the meat. Studies have shown this can bring the levels equal to that in salmon. Heart healthy! Also, taking orders for turkeys, $25/ea. They are getting a smaller % of the Omega feed. Please message on this page, NOT comment below with your order. Jessy Scott will be taking orders for the Fort Wayne customers in her care, so place them with her. Thank you.

Back fenced pasture out of commission, snag from neighbor's fell in, taking the fence with it. Grateful the pole barn was spared. Also thankful that the snag is covered in grapevine, not poison ivy!

No one is immune to the work force crisis. Our Amish poultry processor is shut down because the employees quit! If our 2nd option can't we may be forced to process the broilers we have now ourselves. So many English started raising their own meat birds that it has completely overwhelmed and crushed the Amish industry here. I am sure the inexperienced have been just as abusive as they have been to veterinarians and food service.

Augusta Hills rain or shine, Farmers' Market, we will be inside the barn! Lots of veggies, herbs, eggs, and bread. Come get some fresh food for your weekend!

Will be at Augusta Hills farmer's market in Albion tomorrow with Goat Girl Soaps. Egg bread, veggies, garlic, dill, duck and chicken eggs. Come buy, eat, support local.

Life out here: when a mouse chews thru the starter wiring on the barn frig, you lose a frig full of eggs. Thankfully, there was nothing of Value in the freezer. Scott has it up and running. Thankfully we have no egg orders this week.
