What's happening to our food supply?

It's a beautiful morning on the farm in Chambersburg, PA!

The sun is shining, the grass is lush, and the animals are thriving.

We are harvesting the last of our pastured chickens next month and will be dressing Thanksgiving Turkeys soon!

In the midst of all this good, we hear rumbles of hard times coming.

People ask, "Is your farm ready for another food shortage?"

All I can say is, "We have plenty of food available now. And with our own butcher shop we hope to keep it that way."

Friends out west tell us some grocery stores are only 25% stocked.

We know a large raw milk dairy farmer friend who is currently sold out of milk half gallons due to bottle shortages.

Some of our own packaging suppliers have warned of low inventory.

I don't know what all is on the horizon...

But I do know increased inflation is a real thing. Many of our costs have spiked in the last 18 months.

We always keep our prices as affordable as possible so your family can eat healthy foods grown with integrity...

But some food prices will need to increase to keep our farm sustainable.

Here are 3 ways to prepare.

1. Stock up during our 30 Day Price Freeze: We will hold all current prices until 10/14.

2. Chicken Bundle deals coming soon. Join to get notified!

3. Invest in a chest freezer NOW. Use volume savings to secure your food supply and pay off the freezer. You will also get the convenience of a freezer well stocked with healthy meals! 

No one knows what lies ahead...

That thought shouldn't scare us.

But it does pay to be prepared.

"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." ~2 Timothy 1:7

All the best of food and blessings!

Good morning Family Cow tribe! Something was bothering me. There was a question rolling around in my head. I knew I should dedicate some time to think it through, but... life is busy, so it just kept rolling.
