A note from Waltz Family Farm:
I finally have Thanksgiving Turkey info and pricing!  We all know how costs have gone up & turkey feed has as well.  Whispering Breeze Farm is offering Turkeys to us at a very good price.  These turkeys will be fresh and ready for pick-up at the Hollywood Farmers Market in College Park on November 18th   from 9am-1pm.  Keep them in the coldest part of your fridge or on ice and they’ll be great till  Thanksgiving or the Friday/Saturday after.  If having a Thanksgiving meal later, then I’d freeze them.

Sizes are  SMALL TURKEYS 13-16 lb  serves 4-6 people,  MEDIUM TURKEYS 17-20 lb serves 7-10,
LARGE TURKEYS 21-24lb serves 12-16 people   X-LARGE TURKEYS 25lbs+ serves 17-22

I’d like orders by Saturday Oct. 28th.   There’s a good chance Waltz Family Farm will not be at the Hollywood Farmers Market on November 4th – we will be at Cheverly Community Market & another event near our farm.  If you are not ordering a whole bird you can email me your Turkey Order – tell me how many of what item and leave your phone #.  I will respond once I write your order down.

Last Saturday, our dear friend Farmer Pam Stegall, with Calvert Farm, was sitting in her office when suddenly neighbors were banging on her door.  She looked outside to see her barn was engulfed in flames.  The fire was put out but she lost everything that was in there, all the farm equipment, etc.  If you would like to support Pam please come speak to Aaron, Julie or Laurie.  We can give you her address.
