Two birds with one stone

Orders are trickling in for Thanksgiving, but expect the pace to quicken.  Here’s how to order and have a great day of food shopping as well.

We are taking orders at both of our farmers market, Brunswick and Bath, and at our farmstore.  The markets are abrim with summer and fall goodies, including the best Turkey items you can find.  Last week, fresh corn was still offered at the Crystal Spring Farmers Market in Brunswick, as well as the new batch of Turkey-apple-leek sausage that we produce each autumn.  And, we’re offering Mama Stamberg’s cranberry relish (the one on public radio).  It is always popular, so this year we extended the season by a few weeks.  Fall veggies are in, and many summer vegetables are still in good supply, especially from our friends at Fairwinds Farm and at Applewald Farm, both of whom sell at Crystal Spring.

Now, about ordering.  While you’re at market, stop by our stand for apple-leek sausage and Mama’s and to order for Thanksgiving.  We’ll take the order and hand you a confirmation card with directions for picking up the Turkey at Topsham the day before Thanksgiving.  At Bath, we will take your order and your email address and send you an email confirmation with directions for picking up your Turkey the day before Thanksgiving at Bath.

And, our farmstore will be open Friday fro 2 to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., so you can shop and order here, as well.

If you can’t get to us in person, go to the Our Products page on this website and scroll to the bottom.  Fill in and send the order form.  We will confirm by email.  Keep in mind that in our first 29 years, we sold out 28 times, as early as Nov. 5.  We are raising fewer birds this year since retirement impends, so don’t risk waiting too long.  Order soon.
