Bring Delaware County To Your Dinner Table This Thanksgiving
We are quickly approaching the Thanksgiving Holiday, and if you’ve had time to think about planning your holiday meals with friends and loved ones this season, have you considered sourcing your ingredients from one of our local farms in the Great Western Catskills? Our local producers have kicked it into high gear, even after a difficult and wet summer, to make sure that we have access to some of the best quality agricultural goods our region has to offer.
Stone & Thistle Farm raises grass fed lamb, goat, pork, beef, and poultry on the family farm located in a lush quiet valley in the beautiful town of East Meredith, NY. Stone & Thistle Farm’s livestock and poultry are raised on pastures most of the year. The dairy goats, pigs, and poultry are fed minimal amounts of local grains. No additives, hormones, antibiotics or drugs are used to raise naturally healthy, farm-fresh meat and eggs.
This holiday season, Stone & Thistle Farm is happily taking pre-orders for Thanksgiving Turkeys! The birds will weigh between 14 and 25 lbs each, and are priced at $4.95 / lb. You can place a $20 deposit that reserves you a bird this season, and can pick up your turkey at the Pakatakan Farmers Market in Holvottsville, NY on November 17th, or make arrangements for picking up the turkey at the Farm. For more information about placing your deposit, you can contact the farm by phone 607-278-5800, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. As Tom from Stone & Thistle would say, “Thanksgiving without a Stone & Thistle Farm Turkey is just another Thursday!”
Located in the western Catskill mountains in the town of Meredith is Greenane Farms, another family operation that raises raising grass-fed Angus cattle, heritage pigs, chicken, quail, goats, and of course, turkeys! They also operate a full service farm to table Mexican restaurant in the hamlet of Meridale, NY, serving gourmet Mexican cuisine sourcing ingredients directly from their farm.
Greenane Farms will be taking orders for their Thanksgiving Turkeys that are raised and processed right on the farm. Their pasture raised turkeys weigh between 14 to 30 pounds, and are priced at $4.50 per pound. Please email patrick@greenanefarms or call 607-746-8878 with your order.
