Updates! Two Spots Left for Antlerstock!

Had a cancellation from a couple, and now I have two open spots for Antlerfest, weekend of October 15th. If you would like to come, email me ASAP, as they are first-come-first-get. This is certainly going to be your last chance to sneak in and I don't want to be telling tales out of school. but I just bought a pound of rendered leaf lard and 10 pounds of Boston Butt from Flying Pig Farm next door, and that Saturday's pie crusts and pulled pork are going to rock your heritage-pig-eatin' world!

P.S. Just a heads up, the Meat and Beer Workshop has been moved to Feb 18th, a week before the second wool workshop. Please email me if you signed up and this is a problem! And if any of you like the idea of sausage and stout, consider signing up!

Hi Jenna - do you have a headcount for Antlerstock? I'd like to bring some treats for all.

Last year I heard you speak on The Splendid Table and we purchased your book about raising chickens. I don't know where I can contact you to ask you this question so I'm leaving it here in your blog comments.

You mentioned on the show that there are chickens that hardly make any noise and are perfect in places that aren't farms (more suburban locales). We would like to know what variety of chicken you were referring to and where can they be purchased.

We'd appreciate your help.

i think 40, all told.

Christine: while all chickens make some noise, I find the "quietest" to be the heavy breeds, like the buff orp, brahma, and rocks. Good luck!

Oct 15th? I would love to but that's the same weekend at the New York Sheep & Wool Festival. I'm surprised you're not going, Jenna. It's a pretty big event.

It's a 7 hour round trip from here, and that's without traffic. I wish it was closer, but I would only be able to stay an hour or so before heading home for evening chores and to let the dogs out. Long day trips aren't possible without kennels or paid help...

Someday!

Jenna- the sheep and wool festival is 2 hours 10 mins each way from jackson. Total of less 4.5 round trip. Most definitely do-able, and this festival attracts folks from the entire country. It's where sheep people GO. There is also a gourmet food section and TONS of fiber for sale as well as sheep stuff. Got some great stuff last year cheap.

I was told the traffic down there is wild?! Like ad-an -exta two hours wild. I have made it to the Vermont Sheep and Wool Fest. I will hopefully make it. I'm sure it it wonderful!

Two hours is more like it and traffic to the show is less than another 20 minutes. I've done it from your area and it's a fairly easy trip, please put in on your calendar for next year- I think you will love it, it's one of the best festivals of this kind.

Traffic is not bad if you come south down 9h, you can avoid rhinecliff bridge traffic. They have home made Chicken pot pies to die for. MMMMMMMMMMMM

And Gibson seems to be doing okay, not as great as when you worked him, but okay! We are keeping at it, and staying positive!
