Honeymoon Farm May Update

May 12, 2020

Hi there!

As the spring rolls in (Ok - lets be honest, its flowing like cold molasses), our anticipation is electric for what this season will hold. You know that feeling you get as you approach the completion of big goals you've set, and plans you've made? Like when you're trying to get through the week leading up to graduation, or there's one chapter to go in that book you can't put down, or when you're down to the last 15 pieces in a 1,000 piece puzzle? We're feeling it.

It hasn't been a cake walk, but it has been absolutely worth the actual blood, sweat, and tears that have gone into getting our farm up and running, and growing delicious food for you.

  • Hand cut open by chicken wire?
  • 120 lb me dragging a 150 lbs of peat moss and chicken manure out of the house?
  • Collapsing with tears of exhaustion and overwhelming joy at 10:30 at night - after the last of the farm work for the day?
    check. check. check.

Next week, you will literally get to taste the fruits of our labor. And it's going to be delicious.

Thursday night, we will be dropping off our first batch of chickens at the butcher, and a few days later, we'll head over to pick up our very own poussin.

Pre-order yours now

But, I'll be honest with you... I've never made poussin before.

You'd think that since we're growing poussin I should know how! However, since I (and probably you, too) really don't see poussin very often in the grocery store or at the farmers market, I have never had the opportunity to give it a go.

So, I've been doing a lot of research on the how-to's and the what-for's and thought I'd share with you today. If you've already reserved a poussin or two of your own from us, these recipes and methods will definitely come in handy.

Enjoy today's gift of 3 Easy Ways to Cook Poussin.
