As Spring is quickly approaching, I can’t help but get excited. There are new projects to plan and old projects to finish, all of which are OUTSIDE! Projects like choosing seeds for the garden, planning where everything will be planted, planning my new herb garden, cleaning out the chicken coop so it is ready for this year’s flock, determining how many broilers I need to raise and choosing the dates to raise them…the list goes on and on. And it is a happy list. It is the advent of a new beginning. It is spring!
I know most people have these thoughts in January, the advent of the calendar new year. But WE fall into a different category. Do you have an acreage? Do you live in town? Do you farm? Are you a homesteader? You see, even though we aren’t all in the same place in our endeavours, we have something in common. We all take part in the planting and harvesting cycle. We work hard during the Spring, Summer and Fall and we rest (relatively speaking) in the Winter.
As we look forward to this spring and the advent of new beginnings outdoors, please know that you are a part of a community. A community that takes pride in knowing where their food comes from. You are a part of a community that works hard to provide delicious food to our families and our neighbors. Here at Duncan’s Poultry, we are proud to support you and we are thankful to be a part of your community!
We wish each of you a joyous and Happy New Year – Spring!
