We are partnering with Bee Local to offer bee keeping classes at the store. More information here: http://www.beelocal.com/classes/
We can relocate roosters again! Bring them in a cardboard box with some pine shavings on Wednesday or Saturday and we'll pass them on to our partner who will either keep them in his breeding program or relocate them to other breeding farms he knows. A small percentage end up at auction, an uncertain fate. He can also relocate older or unwanted hens.
No rooster relocation for the foreseeable future due to circumstances beyond our control.
We have placed our orders for Rogue tools (made from recycled agricultural discs and quality ash wood in the USA) and Radius ergonomic garden tools. They should both be in before the end of January. www.roguehoe.com www.radiusgarden.com
Vegetable seeds are starting to arrive now and organic vegetable starts will follow. We carry Territorial, Baker Creek, Uprising, Irish Eyes (organic), Seed Savers Exchange and more. Our selection has been greatly increased. Look for onion sets and seed potatoes arrive shortly
Chicken keeping classes based on our book, A Chicken In Every Yard, will resume Sunday January 27th and will occur approximately every 2 weeks for the rest of the spring, then monthly for the rest of 2013. Tickets will be soon be available through links on our calendar
First chicks arriving January 25th, then weekly for the rest of the spring and summer and into the autumn in smaller numbers. Ducks, geese and turkeys will start rolling in later this spring and summer. We will also be doing special orders on a limited basis. See calendar for this and other chick arrival details
We're doing another cider pressing this Sunday 11-5!
It's this weekend! Info: http://www.urbanfarmstore.com/cider-pressing/
Thanks for waiting, we now have a date for the next chicken keeping class: Sunday, September 23rd 5:30-7:30
Now through early winter is the perfect time time to plant edible trees, shrubs, and vines. To celebrate, we are offering 50% off one of these plants when you buy another. Vegetables excluded, discount on plant of lesser or equal value.
I'm pleased to announce that we will again be able to list on our calendar which breeds and quantities of chicks are scheduled to arrive. This is a very useful tool for planning and managing your flock. In 2013 we will add a new feature listing all of the arrival dates for each breed in addition to the breeds arriving on each delivery.
Better yet, all chicks will be arriving a day earlier (Thursdays) and a day younger (2 days old). This will result in far healthier birds that will thrive at your home or farm!
Just in time for your bumper crops of berries, tons of tomatoes, and bushels of beans, we have received our preserving supplies. There are jars, lids, pectin, tools and much more. Best of all, our prices are hard to beat.
