COVID was NOT started by people eating ostrich. By the way, ostriches do not stick their heads in the sand AND they only have two toes NOT THREE. :-)

Some fertilized OSTRICH hatching eggs are available for the next week or so. If you are interested please reach out directly. We do not ship. Thanks!

Interesting heritage turkey fact of the day:

Blue Slate heritage turkey parents produce either Black, Self-Blue/Lavender or Blue Slate poults. The main difference between Self-Blue and traditional Blue Slate is the "splashing" - Self-Blue turkeys have virtually no black spots on their feathers, while the "true Blue" Slate has black spots throughout.

Recessive Slate heritage turkey parents breed true, which means they will only produce more Recessive Slate poults. If you get anything other than a Recessive Slate poult, then one of the parents is not a true Recessive Slate.

"If you try to take my BMF egg shell, I will hurt you." We sometimes feel this way about them too, Scarlet!

Meet "Pojo" the Muscovy duckling, aka JavaBean/Morado Jr., the first BMF baby bird successfully hatched entirely by its mother - with no assistance from us. JavaBean is doing a great job keeping Pojo warm these last couple of days!

We have tried to let the turkeys hatch out their own poults a few times but it has always ended poorly - not worth losing all those poults.

Our ostriches can't hatch their own chicks here for us due to the intense moisture and puddling that we have experienced, particularly during the last couple of years.

05/07/2020

We are considering selling a breeding pair or possibly trio of BMF ostriches. Please email us if you are seriously interested ([email protected]). Having adequate fencing in place is a prerequisite.

If you ever have leftover watermelon rinds, bring 'em by! The turkeys fight over them.

RECIPE: Amadumbe gnocchi with an ostrich fillet

Sounds tasty!

The potato of the tropics, or amadumbe as it is locally known, was a passport for ardent food traveller and chef Nompumelelo Mqwebu. The cookbook author has gained international acclaim for her efforts to champion the use of indigenous ingredients in fine dining. READ: African food ‘belongs on...

Farmer Veteran Coalition

The USDA Food Box Distribution Program -
Application opens tomorrow 4/24!

USDA will distribute up to $3 billion of agricultural products to those in need. They look to fund any farm entity that has the capacity to source eligible products and assemble the product into food boxes, and deliver the boxes to nonprofit partners.

These partners will then use the boxes to serve families and individuals in need.

Any farm or food business that has the capacity to do this would qualify for the program. Farmers of all sizes - large and small - are encouraged to submit proposals.

We have another single edible ostrich egg available! Bonus, if the buyer would also like an inedible egg that has a shell worthy of design/art we'll throw it in for free (you will need to blow it out yourself). PM us if you're interested.

We received our very first donation of ostrich meat this week!
Many thanks to Blue Mojo Farm for thinking of Dulles South Food Pantry as they are also challenged during this time with limitations at farmer's markets. Check out their website for ideas on how to cook ostrich meat and how to obtain it for your family :) https://bluemojofarm.com/
(Ostrich is a delicious healthy red meat with all the texture and hearty flavor of beef. Extremely high in protein, low in fat, calories, and cholesterol but high in Iron– Ostrich is even lower in fat grams than skinless white meat chicken or turkey!)

"Thousands of feathers working together to ensure quality paint process for GM vehicles."
Happiness.
A lovely couple from Little Tree Huggers "pardoned" two turkeys tonight! Happy days for the turkeys going to their "forever home" and heartwarming to see educators saving these gorgeous, loving heritage breed birds. They will be well loved by their students!
Usually you don't need binoculars for turkeys, ducks and ostriches, but it's still calming to watch them!
Hahahahah!
New quadruplets!
There is a VERY precocious chocolate Muscovy duck trying to give the poult sitting in the towel moral support... by sitting in there with him. :-)
Wow. C diff is sadly a familiar term, so a cure would be fantastic.
