    We are here, we are here, we are here!! <Horton Hears a Who style>
    We had some awesome get togethers over the spring, summer and fall. Some were organized, some not.
    I'm in the Windham area, so eastern but not really southern CT. [​IMG]
    But we're a small state. Welcome!!!
    Here is a link to an old thread from one of our gatherings:

    And here is a link to what seems to be the most official and comprehensive "Who's from CT" thread. At least it was!

    Hi Everyone. I'm in Bolton, CT. There seems to be a backyard chicken epidemic in our town. Seems like everyone I talk to in our small town has chickens or knows someone who does. I don't have my chickens yet. We are still in the process of setting up. We've gotten our coop and will be fencing in a run as soon as the ground thaws enough to do so! We picked out and tagged our four girls from a farm in Scotland, CT. so we'll be bringing them home in April.

    The whole family is excited to get them home![​IMG]

    Cool! What is the name of the farm in Scotland. I'm only one town over. My mom has a former student who just started a farm there. Young family. Very nice. We keep trying to get out and visit. Haven't made it yet! What kind of chicks will she have?
    Oh, and welcome! I'm in Windham and my ducks came from Bolton! (By way of Murray McMurray anyway!!)

    The farm is Hurricane Farm and it is newly owned by a young family. They are very nice and extremely helpful. They raise chickens, pigs, cows and turkeys for meat (they have a CSA as well). They also raise chickens for eggs and to sell to others for egg laying. I tagged a Astrolorp, EE, Buff orrington & barred rock. I think I'm also going to take home a RIR.

    The farm is fun to visit. They've got sheep, goats (i think), chickens, geese, turkeys, cows, pigs, rabbits you name it running around. You can find them at localharvest.com (http://www.localharvest.org/farms/M23866)

    We definitely want to keep a relationship with them because we like to support local family owned farms.

    Quote:That's the one! It's only a couple of miles from me. I'm looking forward to getting meat from them.

    We actually purchased a 1/10 of a pig so we'll have meat coming mid-february. I'm looking forward to the grass fed beef as well.
