Happy, Happy

Happy New Year! We rung in the New Year and celebrated Chris's Birthday last night over local, pulled pork (raised by our friend, Amanda, in Aquebogue), barbecue chicken grilled in our Lexington-style sauce, and Chris's famous Angel Biscuits, made in the traditional Southern-way with rendered pork fat from Mecox Bay Dairy Farm leaf lard.
The Riverhead Indoor Market returns this Saturday from 10-3 with all of your favorite farmers in one place at 117 East Main Street downtown. Try the pork from Mecox Bay Dairy! You can also pick-up a Feisty Acres Farm package of Organic quail along with your Browder's Birds Organic eggs.  Our farmstand is open Saturday & Sunday from 12-5 PM.  Come out to visit the farm before it gets too cold to walk out and see the chickens, ducks, sheep and new baby chicks.


Just when you thought it was the off-season... the baby chicks have arrived! Our new Certified Organic layers are just a few days old and staying warm under heat lamps in the brooder.  On the farm we are already busy with preparations for the 2016 season.  The  Chicken and Egg Summer CSA Shares are now available online and make a great (unique) gift.  Who wouldn't want fresh, organic eggs and chicken all summer?  Out East Foodie even included our CSA in her list of Top Ten Local Gifts.  

Making a List

This week our farm products made it onto several Top Holiday Lists: The Ten Best Things I Ate in 2015 for #4 Minty Moonpies & The Top Ten North Fork Gifts for our #7 Heritage Wool Collection.  Browder's Birds is also on the Top 12 North Fork Foodie Gift List at #3.  Food or Fashion - we have the Holidays covered and we couldn't be prouder!

Find delicious Minty Moonpies at our farmers markets and in the stand this weekend.  Our Heritage Cotswold Collection will also be available in our farmstand and at the Homegrown Artisan Market at the Hayground School in Bridgehampton this Saturday. You can always shop online in our Pantry. 


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.
