Forks Farm January, 2011

Forks Farm-January, 2011

The farmers at Forks Farm want to express our sincere appreciation and gratitude for the support you have given Forks Farm and Forks Farm Market. We had a very successful season! This January and February, we are focusing on upgrading our abilities to serve you better. We have invested in a refrigerated delivery vehicle and an easier ordering system for our buying clubs. Hopefully this will make it easier for those of you away from Forks Farm to enjoy Forks Farm fresh food.
We are especially excited of the growth and response of buying club members and Forks Farm Market. We currently have buyers clubs in Merion, Fairmount, Mt.Airy, Devon, Phoenixville, Pottstown, Media, Ridgewood, and Wilkes-Barre. We really appreciate our customers' patience and suggestions as we try to meet increased demand. Originally, we started as grass farmers (circa 1992) serving local families with our products. As we have expanded over the years, we strive to become more efficient in processing orders and distributing our product. We are attempting to balance the three while staying true to our goal of providing you with a local source of fresh, clean, pastured poultry, eggs, beef, lamb, and pork of the highest quality using sustainable farming methods that contribute to the health of our customers, community and environment.
Thank you so much for your feedback and support. Please take a minute to fill out the survey attached to help us improve our service to you. Looking forward to providing you with the best ever food in 2011!

Farmers of the Week, Phoenixville Farmers Market

Producer of the Week

Fork's Farm
Fresh Pasture-Raised Beef

What do you do when that excellent barbecue cookbook that dad got last Father's Day calls for 2" thick pasture-raised steaks? Where do you get such thick cuts of fresh, delicious meat? Answer: You get it from Forks Farm.

John and Todd Hopkins, their kids, and the rest of the crew at Forks Farm offer pasture-raised beef, lamb, chickens, and turkeys, plus woodlot pork. The meat can be cut and packaged to your specifications. It's like having a professional butcher on call.

Their chicken and turkey are processed the day before pick-up, for an unrivaled flavor. Their beef comes from "young Angus/Hereford cattle raised entirely on pasture"*. The meat is vacuum sealed and flash frozen to retain its freshness. Woodlot pork tastes better than factory farmed pork because the pigs root and eat the nutrient-rich diet they should, instead of gorging on the cheap grains and scraps thrown in their pens at factory farms. The ham, bacon, and sausage offered by Forks Farm is cured to produce an "old-fashioned flavor"* that factory farms just can't produce.

So whether you need poultry, beef, lamb, or pork, check out Forks Farm to get fresh, pasture-raised meat that is custom cut and packaged to suit your needs. Look at their website or chat with them at the market to arrange for the best-tasting meats for your family and friends.
