This last burchering we had the butcher make a crown roast. It is a roast made using the portion of th elk that DelMonicos come from, it would be a great roast to use when entertaining. Let us know if you are interested and we can save it or bring it to the Troy Market with us.
The Troy Market begins the summer season on the 2nd of May. This means we will be there the first, third and fourth Saturdays of every month. The second Saturday we will be attending the Gloversville Market. (With the exception of May when we will go to Gloversville on the third Sat. )
The elk are doing great! The bulls have dropped their buttons and are beginning to show the new growth, this stage of antler growth is referred to as the velvet stage. They look pretty shaggy right now; all the winter hair is starting to shed out.
We are printing and selling some notecards and postcards featuring pictures of our elk. We only have a couple different pictures available now, but would love imput on what pictures from our gallery you would like to see on a postcard. We are also going to begin offering prints of any photo in our gallery. I will try to have a page listing prices up shortly.
We will be at the Troy Waterfront Market every other week until May when we will be there every Saturday. Our schedule is March 14th, March 28th, April 11th and April 25th. The market site is www.troymarket.org.
Our local Mohawk Valley Spring Market will be on April 4th from 9 to 1 at the Econo Lodge (former Populars Inn) in Fultonville. Hope to see you there!
Just wanted to remind everyone that we won't be at the market this Saturday, but will be back on the 28th.
I also wanted to apologize to anyone who came on the 31st looking for us. I gave birth to my third child Friday night, so neither my Mom (who was watching my other two children) or I were able to attend. We hope to see everyone on the 28th.

The calving season as officially started! We have four new calves on the ground. All seem to be doing well and their mothers are over-protective as normal. It is common for the cows to hide their calves for the first ten days before allowing them to venture over to the feed bunks during feeding. We often don't know they've calved until a week or two later. Thankfully, calving problems are rare in elk. We are hoping for at least two more calves (I will try to get some pictures or them) and will keep you all updated.
