Easter is just around the corner! Fortunately we still have some of our delicious bone-in smoked hams available for your festivities. Our pigs are raised on our own pastures and live on a diet of whey from our creamery and grain from a local farmer - you can taste the difference! We have hams ranging in size from 3 to 9 pounds. Stop by our store hours on Thursday from 2pm to 6pm and Saturdays from 9am to 1pm to pick one up. Or give us a call at 518-647-5754 and we can set one aside for you. See you soon!
The first of our kids have arrived! Early Sunday morning we welcomed our first four kids - healthy and happy. With 42 does still expecting, we'll have many more kids in the coming weeks. Come by during our store hours to visit the little ones. We are open Thursdays from 2pm to 6pm and Saturdays from 9am to 1pm - we all hope to see you soon!
Some farms have a pig pile - we have a "kid pile."
Our shelves are stocked with our delicious pastured pork just in from the butcher! Our heritage breed pigs eat sprouted grains grown here on the farm or a grain mix raised by a local farmer in addition to whey from our creamery. We have a huge variety of cuts available – loin roasts perfect for entertaining, meaty bacon to start your morning, juicy pork chops and sirloin pork chops for a quick weeknight dinner, many kinds of sausages, and more!
Stop by our store hours – Thursdays from 2pm-6pm and Saturdays from 9am-1pm - to fill up your freezers while our supply lasts!
See you soon!
- The crew as Asgaard
As we move into fall, its time to start thinking about stocking your freezer for winter. We just got some of our 100% grass fed, grass-finished beef back from the butcher and will have delicious pastured pork for sale in just a few short weeks! Stop by the farm store, Thursdays from 2 to 6 pm or Saturdays from 9 am to 1 pm to grab some. Goat meat won't be coming until the beginning of winter, but it will be really tasty so save a little room. We also have three chicken harvests left for the season. Email or call us if you would like to reserve one or more of our pastured broilers.
-The crew at Asgaard
The end of May and beginning of June have been full of transitions here at Asgaard. We officially finished kidding season, with our last doe giving birth on May 18th. In total, 95 kids were born this season from 47 does. All the girls are now coming into the milking parlor twice a day and, with the majority of the kids already weaned, we can truly dedicate the milk to cheesemaking. We are now in the thick of cheese production, with fresh chevre and our popular bloomy-rinds (Whiteface Mountain and Barkeater Buche) ready now and new batches of feta and tomme aging away. Stop by the farm during our store hours or come by a market to get all your favorite goat cheeses. A big thanks to all the volunteers who helped us bottle-feed or take care of kids during the last few months, and of course a hearty "good job" to the milking does--the stars of the show!
Join us this Saturday, June 2nd for the first Saranac Lake market in Riverside Park. The Lake Placid market at the LPCA begins June 6th, the Keene Valley market at Marcy Field starts June 17th and the Au Sable Forks market commences June 29th.
