Spring House Farm holds several events throughout the year where attendees can learn about locally raised food. They just held a Whole Hog Seam Butchery Demo with butcher Marc Pauvert. Look for more upcoming events like this from Spring House Farm. We also want to hear from the other farms - what events do you have going on this spring?

AMAZING night on the farm learning from one of the best in the world, Marc Pauvert. Thank you Crooked Run Brewing, Maggie Malick Wine Caves, Magnolias at the Mill Restaurant and Georges Mill Farm Artisan Cheese for the delicious food and drink. Missed tonight? No worries, keep your eyes out for our summer events.

Many of us look forward to getting fresh produce at our homes weekly through CSAs, but did you know that there are also meat CSAs? Members get top quality meats from local farms and get access to some of the best cuts of meat. Additionally, many farmers are committed to using as much of the animal as possible for ecological reasons, so members will often get cuts that they aren't used to. Check out the local meat CSAs on our website. http://ow.ly/nGeF50prcj1

Today is a holiday devoted to promoting the welfare of America's enormous livestock population. While this doesn't hold true everywhere, we are proud that our farms raise their farm animals humanely. What's your favorite farm animal?
