040 Taking respected animals from the farm to the processor, early Autumn vegetable gardens, winter and farming

Released Tuesday, 2nd October 2012
Good episode? Give it some love!
Even though it's early Autumn we have still been busy farming this week!
Updates from around the farm this week include:

Taking the last of the pastured pigs to processor and deciding who was going to stay with us!
We touch again on the difficulty of sending respected animals to the processor,
Getting ready for pork pickup with customers as the meat comes back from the processor,
Dealing with turkeys - everywhere.

We take a muddy stroll through the veggie patch:

CSA is done but still harvesting,
Late planting reviews and opinions: zucchini, beans, lettuce, bok choy,
Dried bean update,
Greenhouse plantings update.

In the CoopCast community:

Jennifer asked about feeding candy to cows,
Constance wanted an update on the poison ivy drops (Oral Ivy),
Chad was wondering what we do to winterize farm (waterer, shelter bedding) right now: coop, winter paddock for pigs
