We were colder than Caribou, this morning. A little extra effort sprucing up bedding for the animals yesterday was well spent.

They're catching on!

This thing houses a small feeder loaded with oats. The restrictor plate on the front allows the two lambs in, so that they have constant access to the oats (to facilitate the transition to solid foods), while keeping the adults out.

Another day, another feeder.

At just a few days old, they're already eating oats and hay.

Thursday morning brought us two lambs! Thursday night was cold as it gets around here, but they've been handling it like champs. It's surprising how dense their hair is right from the get-go.

Good times!

Reunited! All the ewes are home, together again. Cheryl seems to have found a favorite spot already.

Plus, the remaining lambs are on the trailer, ready for processing. So if you're interested in discounted, bulk orders of lamb, there's no time like the present!

Hey everyone! Tomorrow is the monthly pop-up vendor market at Double Barley Brewing! Normally, we'd be there, selling meat, but we're coming off a week in the mountains. So if you see us there, it'll be as people instead of vendors.

Thanks to "Uncle" Josh Munck for taking care of dogs and goats in our stead!

06/14/2022

Hey, all! It's been a busy Spring and early Summer and we'll soon have another offering of grass-raised lamb ready. If you've enjoyed our lamb in the past, and are interested in saving by buying in bulk, let us know!

Much like shares of beef, we offer discounts on whole-lamb orders. Whole lambs typically bring 30-40 pounds of cuts, which is comparable to an 1/8th share of beef.

Let us know if you're interested and we'll be happy to provide details.

And of course, if you're still learning lamb, or have never had it at all, we have you covered, too. We've got single packs of leg steaks, chops, sliced shoulder and ground lamb for you!

We are at Double Barley Brewing! They've been hard at work preparing the pulled pork, so you'd better get you some while the getting is good! Local vendors are here with arts, foods, clothing, jewelry and more.

Later, on top of all of that and primo beer: NCOyster365!

CFCM UNICEF-Ukraine Fund Raiser is raising funds for UNICEF USA

Hey everyone! Last time we were at Clayton Farm and Community Market, we pledged to donate $2 for each pound of ground beef we sold to the CF&CM Unicef fundraiser in support of Ukranian refugees. We sold 9 pounds on the 19th (thank you!) and we just dropped in $50. At the time of this post, two days remain for the fundraiser and the $1,000 goal is just about half-met. If you can, please consider adding any amount, as they always say.

Sadly, the troubles facing the Ukrainian people won't end any time soon.

I'm raising money for UNICEF’s programs for children around the world. Please donate and show support!

Salutations, friends!

It's with a heavy heart that we share with you that we are parting from Clayton Farm and Community Market, effective immediately. We're sorry for such short notice and we want to emphatically underscore that the decision has absolutely nothing to do with CF&CM; we've have nothing but positive experiences whether with market staff, with other vendors or our loyal customers. We can't thank you all enough for the support you've shown over the course of the last five years and we count ourselves blessed to have had the chance to learn about, and get to know, our community from such a unique perspective.

But, alas, all things must come to an end. The fact is, despite all the rewards that have come with this venture, the time has come to focus on interests that must unfortunately be placed on the proverbial back burner while operating a farm and a small business. As such, we will also be phasing out meat sales entirely. For a limited time, we're happy to arrange pickups of beef and lamb here at home. We'll also continue attending monthly vendor markets at Double Barley Brewing on US-70 in Smithfield, while supplies last. Please feel free to message us through facebook, or by emailing us at [email protected]. And keep an eye out for notifications from Double Barley and us, regarding their pop up vendor markets.

Lastly, we sincerely hope that you continue to support those still at CF&CM. Our departure won't leave you stranded; you'll still find local sources for responsibly raised, quality meats through Our Local Farm and recent addition Batten Acres. They work hard, same as us, to bring you options that can't be found in stores. If you've had their meat or ours, then you already know what we mean.

So what does the future hold? We're lucky enough that we'll be able to continue raising for ourselves. Before joining Clayton Farm and Community Market, we were already infatuated with the quality of the meat we could produce here at home and once you've had that there's no going back. The page will probably remain; if you are so inclined, keep following along and feel free to drop us a line!

Thank you again, with deepest gratitude and kindest regards,

-Jennifer & Curtis Belyea

Back in 2010, we got ourselves a handful of chickens and ducks; only in it for a few fresh eggs and meat. We had no expectations beyond that, but in 2012 we moved into our current place and the dream took flight. A lot has changed since then; it seems like constant motion. Since there was no infrastructure in place, and the land was almost entirely wooded (the yard was the only exception) fencing was the first order of business, as our plan for clearing the land was to rely heavily on goats. Once the fence was up and the goats arrived, things quickly went into motion as they chewed their way through smilax, poison ivy, chinese privet and small trees. Once the brush was cleared, the laborious task of clearing trees commenced. The removal of trees is still underway, as it's a slow process with a chainsaw and a truck.

Along the way, the process of clearing the land has been refined. While the goats are great at keeping the regeneration of brush and stump sprouts at bay, it became obvious that in order to go to the next level and establish field grass, we needed to aggressively root up stumps and weeds as they stubbornly persisted through the natural order of succession that follows disturbances such as deforestation. Thinking back to my studies at North Carolina State University (where I earned a Master of Forestry), and my recent interest in hog hunting, a light bulb went off. Pigs have long had a reputation as exuberant creators of destruction, evidenced by crop disturbance experienced by many farmers in the Coastal Plain of North Carolina as well as the over-reaching destruction of the historical extent of the longleaf pine ecosystems across the southeastern United States as a whole. Eureka! As long as we don't let them loose, let's let pigs do it! And with that, the last piece of the puzzle before raking and planting fell into place. Breakfast has never been better. It was a natural progression to make the leap to selling the pork that we've raised and are excited about where that may go.

And so here we are. Things are still in flux as we move fence lines around to accommodate the removal of trees that are still up as well as to rotate animals around the property. Though we have further to go, we're able to see the potential that's before us. We've gotten a lot better, and faster, at the various types of fencing seen around a farm. 2016 saw our first birth (not hatching) on the farm. Since then, we’ve moved into sheep and cows, too, though those ventures are relatively new. All said, there has been no shortage of challenges and learning experiences, but that, as much as anything, is what makes it rewarding.

I had the opportunity to get my hands on hanging tender steak from Triple R Farm. This is referred as the butcher's cut as many butchers keep it for themselves as there is only one per cow.
Porchini powder, salt, pepper and a super quick sear in a super hot cast iron pan with butter and thyme. Then I made a Thai basil, brandy, and garlic compound butter and generously coated the steak while it rested. Sautéed mushrooms with butter, vermouth, thyme, balsamic, salt & pepper with shallots and broccolini.

Leftovers? No problem. Steak & broccolini cheese omelette for breakfast.

Fresh young (pre-puberty) Goose. Big plans for this dude. Big plans. Thanks Triple R Farm !
Woot woot!
Woohoo!!
If you're looking for quality, grass raised beef at a discount, look no further!
Woohoo!!
After a long day out delivering vegetables, this lamb really restores my energy! It's so nutritionally dense and satisfying, I know I will sleep soundly and wake up ready to do some farmin'. I feel really lucky to be surrounded by such a loving community of food! Thanks for all you do!
Lamb chop
Lamb chop with bone

Ok, I bought a lamp chop with bone and lamb shoulder chop. I was asked to prepare them exactly the same way to determine which was more tender. If I have the cut correct, the lamb chop with the bone is more tender. It's the smaller one that was more tender.

Thanks to Triple R Farm for the opportunity to try two cuts and compare.

This was damn amazing.
Our Avie girl is an Alpine Boer cross with the most loving personality and most adorable face! We were gifted by our friends from Triple R Farm ! If you haven’t checked them out at the Clayton Farm and Community Market we highly recommend it!
New arrivals at Triple R Farm! Stay tuned for updates ❤️
