Hi everyone,
This e-mail pertains mostly to our customers from the Albany area.

Unfortunately, we will no longer be attending the Troy Waterfront Farmer's Market. We will, however be vending at the Market at the Crossings in Colonie. The market runs on Saturdays, beginning the first weekend in June, from 9-1. (see below for directions)
We will, of course, have the elk meat, as well as our pastured pork, beef, chicken, lamb and eggs!

We have heard great things about this market and are excited about attending, we hope to see you all there! As always, feel free to call ahead to place an order (a must if you'd like a bundle)

Hope you are all having a great spring!

The Market at the Crossings is located at the Crossings Park in Colonie on Albany Shaker Rd. The park is across from Emerick Lane.

If you are driving North on 87, take exit 4 (Wolf Rd exit) turning left onto Wolf Rd. Then turn right onto Albany Shaker Rd. The park will be on your right.

Hi everyone!
There have been a couple last minute updates.
For our Troy customers, the market has decided to extend its hours until 2 for the holiday season BUT, we will not be staying that long. We will only be there until 1. We have chores waiting at home, some which must be done before dark. Thank you for understanding!

Also, don't forget there is a market in Johnstown, tommorrow the 20th. Hope to see many of you there!

Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!

Last Saturday we had our sample day at the Troy Farmer's Market. Otherwise called the Great Elk BBQ Cookoff with Roger's Rustic Rubs. Roger was the winner! he does have some great products! We also had a lot of great comments on our recipe and of course on the elk meat in general. It was a wonderful day and we met a lot of great people who were trying elk meat for the first time.

All who voted for their favorite were put into a drawing and the winner was Lori Maiwald. Congragulations!

Hi everyone,
Hope you are all having a great summer!

Just a few updates: We won't be at the market this Saturday, the 24th, due to family reunion, but we will be back on the 31th with a new batch of meat. Snack Sticks are back!!

Also, on August 21st, we are having a sample day. We challenged Roger's Rubs to a friendly competition. We will both be sampling elk roasts, ours with a family favorite bbq sauce and Roger's with one of his great products. We're asking you to sample both and then vote for your favorite. We will draw one random vote and that person will win a gift basket!
Hope to see you there!

The elk are doing well. They don't care for the heat, but have plenty of shade and water. We have three adorable babies frolicking all over the fields. I'll try to get some current pictures of them on the website, so check back.

Thanks!

We just picked up a new batch of meat from the butcher's today. It looks fabulous! We will have every cut on Saturday the 16th at the Troy Farmer's Market and as always, meat is available on-farm and at Mohawk Harvest Co-op in Gloversville.

Hope to see!

Hello,

Just a reminder that there is a market this Saturday the 14th in Fonda at the Econolodge, this is the Christmas Market. It sounds like it will be a good one.

Also we have some new products. I have been trying my hand at leather working and have put together some beautiful purses made out of genuine elk leather. I posted some pictures in the gallery section. At the moment I don't have enough to post for sale on the website (they are selling as fast as I can make them) but this winter I will hopefully have enough time to make a lot to put up for sale here. We will have some for sale in Fonda this Saturday and we do have them with us in Troy, however. (They make great Christmas gifts ;))

Our other new product is a small selection of soup and seasoning mixes. We have many people who would like to try elk meat, but don't know what they would make, so we have put together a couple  mixes to help them out. They are for sale at the markets and I will put the up on the products page for sale, as well.

Thank you and Merry Christmas!!

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to update our schedule. From now on we will be at The Troy Waterfront Farmer's Market every Saturday, weather permitting.

 Last month was our last at Gloversville. However, we are stocking some elk meat at the new Mohawk Harvest Co-op store in Gloversville, right on Main St. See their website for directions and hours www.mohawkharvest.org If you don't see an item you'd like, please request it through the store (or by calling us) we will deliver weekly to the store when necessary.

Also, we have dates for the market in Fonda. It will be held on November 14th and then again on December 12th. Both at the Econo Lodge.

As always, meat is available at the farm by appoinment or chance.

Thanks
