Since it is the Season, we are taking this moment to say how thankful we are for our supportive customers, both old and new, many of whom have quickly become dear friends.  We hope that you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday spent with loved ones!

Another batch of Browder's Chicken Stock is ready for the weekend, made with our Organic chicken, bones & feet.  Our rich, thick stock makes a great soup base or can be savored on its own. 

Also find our Organic Eggs, Fresh Mayonnaise, Poultry Brine, Original Pickled Eggs and Pickled Eggs with Beets at the markets and on the shelves for the holidays.  We'll have our farmstand open this Wednesday, November 25th from 12-5 PM for last-minute shopping as well as Carissa's Bread & Pie Pick-ups.

Comfort Food

Chickens are sold-out for this season but we still have lots of delicious reasons to visit the farmstand.  And this weekend we bring back our Browder's Blends homemade Mayonnaise and Smoky Garlic Aioli.  Bring on the turkey sandwiches.  If you'd like to whip up your own, pick up some fresh eggs and try our recipe for Garlic Aioli.  Serve it with assorted vegetables and meat for dipping, and call it a meal!

Also find our Original Pickled Eggs on the shelves for the holidays.  Keep a jar on hand for a great snack, a quick hors d'oeuvres plate or a fun stocking stuffer. We also have our Chicken Hand Pies and East End Mushroom Quiches to help feed your holiday guests.

Country Mice

A strong, early morning storm on Tuesday sent us scrambling and left us with one demolished chicken tractor and one upside down sheep house.  But luckily all of our animals were unharmed.  Another item for the weekly (lengthy) chore list: Repair chicken tractor. Whoever said that country life was simple, never lived on a farm! 

The Sweet Life

This weekend we are so excited to have the first batch of honey harvested for 2015 and available for sale. This golden honey is very light and floral with less of the grassy notes of last season. Beekeeper Tom has been meticulously taking care of our 15 hives and still found the time to construct a new awning on our farmstand with the assistance of Dennis. 

New Recruits

New ducklings on the farm ready to join the Pekin Duck Patrol!

Local Love

We have FRESH Red Broilers & White Broilers all weekend as well as cut-up chickens. Start planning your Father's Day Barbecue now! And all Fathers get $5 off any chicken 5 pounds or larger.
This week our good friend and winemaker, Robin McCarthy, released Saltbird Cellars white wines and you can find her Chardonnay and Sauvignon-Blanc in our farmstand.  Also available is jams and jelly from newcomer, Peconic River Preserves. Find local Strawberry and Strawberry-Rhubarb jam as well as Sunrise Habanero Jelly in our stand.  We all do better when we support each other and supporting local is the best!
Our Fresh Basil Aioli sold out in one day so we've made a larger batch for the weekend.  Made with our Organic egg yolks, Basil Aioli is perfect on a chicken sandwich, and even better mixed into egg salad or potato salad.  

The Rooster's Crow

There was much excitement this week as we learned that Browder's Birds is a recipient of the New York State New Farmers Grant.  This program provides a 50% reimbursement for selected agricultural projects. Our award will be used towards the additional infrastructure needed to increase chicken production with our newly licensed Mobile Processing Unit.  With the ability to expand, we plan to raise even more certified organic, pastured poultry on the North Fork in the coming seasons. And we have plans to process for a local farmer this Fall starting an exciting new venture - stay tuned!
