We were at the neighbors’ farm in Hardy, VA this past weekend. They graciously allowed the grandchildren to pet the baby pig and the baby turkeys.
Anna asked what the pig’s name was- ”Doesn’t have one.”
The baby mini-mules and their miniature horses don’t have to worry but then again, they have NAMES!
Bob the Mule. Heart the Horse.
The egg-layers are spared.
Oh yes, they have a couple of ducks. And their names? Christmas and New Years.
The second image? Those are a couple of (seven pounds apiece) pork butts that Pap smoked for the Paleo crowd. The veg branch of the family didn’t come this past weekend. I don’t think the meat had names.
Chris Thomson shows off his handcrafted charcuterie. In the meat case- Andouille and chorizo sausages. Some smoked and some fresh sausages, sausages for breakfast, Italian sausages, you name it! The local restaurants had bought up all the bacon today. Thomson’s Custom Meats LLC 992 Twisp-Carlton Road, Twisp, Washington 98856. Turn off Route 20. Known for natural, locally grown meat. A flock of Katahdin sheep grazing outside his shop. Free Range chickens. He said I should go with them to photograph them as they catch the salmon they’ll smoke in the smokehouse real soon. He gets the salmon with the shortest migration so they have a higher fat content. Phone# 509-449-1563. Check out his website for more information. He’ll process your game by appointment, too!
