The farm market has lots of greens, some tasty young carrots, tender collards, onions and the near end of the season tomatoes ( even heirlooms are still available), eggplant and peppers. We have a good selection of apples! Our honey supply is still good with honey from right off the farm. The jam and jar goods offer a wide variety.
The bakery is coming along very well. They have some exciting changes and a strong commitment to bringing back the pies so many of you have been wanting. December will be here just after Thanksgiving.

      This past weekend marked an Historic landmark in STOCKPIG Racing. In over twenty years of Stockpig racing there rarely has been a close finish for the championship. Before the point system was implemented the percentage of wins was used to determine the champion. A pig had to win over 80% of their races to qualify as a hall of famer. It is not easy to do and with the point system it still is very hard to reach that upper level status.   This past Saturday saw the No. 2 pig , Baby Pam in the lead by 12 points over the No. 5 pig ,Sunshine. All week long the pigs ran well in practice with Sunshine getting a clear edge on the others, but Baby Pam was her shadow just behind her ready to take advantage of sloppy finish.    Saturday’s racing got off to a tough start for No. 5 who did not even place in the first race. No. 2 went on to win 3 races before No.5  finally got a win. It got interesting after that. No. 5 went on to win 4 more wins while No. 2 won 2 more races and securing a strong lead. But in the final set of races, the No. 5 pig came on strong winning Her last 3 races and taking the lead by 4 points.    With one set of races left on Sunday evening ( a traditional race held for Faith PCA church each year) it was not certain who the champion would be. After failing to place in the first race No. 2 won one race. But No. 5 sealed the championship by winning 3 races for a total of 279 points. No.2 finished with 258 points. The No.6 pig picked to finish last had some good racing efforts to move ahead of No.7.   The final placing for the pigs was,     sunshine 279  No. 5

Baby Pam 258 No. 2

wolf 180 No. 1

hubba hubba 162 No4

moonshine 102 No3

big moose 69 No. 8

charisma 51 No. 6

racer 48 No. 7

 The pumpkin patch will be open from 10 am to 2 pm Saturday Oct.28. hay rides, hay maze, Stock pig racing and more will be going on at the farm.

 

                           

 

The talk around the track this week is filled with attention on the two pigs going for the championship this weekend. Things are so close that no one can predict the winner.
With just a 6 point lead there is little room for error on either pig’s part. Practice runs have been fun to watch. The No. 5 pig Sunshine has dominated the track with impressive consistent wins. No.2 baby Pam has been like a shadow and has made some strategic finishes.
As a whole the pigs are running very well. Several first turn spin outs have occurred during practice but the pigs quickly set their sights in the right direction. With four sets of races scheduled for Saturday this could be one of the most exciting race days in Stockpig history.
It should be a fun day with hay rides, corn shelling, cob throwing,etc. plus we have more pumpkins in the field for PYO.
Hope to see you there!

The pumpkin patch will be open this Saturday 10 am to 2 pm. Pig races are scheduled for 10 am 12 noon and 2 pm. The hay maze is up and open. At this time the outside is not finished so it looks unfinished.
It is still a good time to reserve a night time hay ride for a Saturday or Friday night in October.
  Lots of good produce right now. Look for an update soon.
