The Elephant At The Market http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/the-elephant-at-the-market/ http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/the-elephant-at-the-market/#comments Tue, 19 Jan 2016 05:58:08 +0000 http://www.namimoonfarms.com/?p=821 I’ve been trying to write this piece for a couple of months now, and while some of the delay is just from traveling or being busy with other things on the farm…a lot of it has to do with the fact that this is kind of a delicate issue. It’s really important how you talk about it, and though I’ve tried here, I will have undoubtedly missed something or failed to explain an aspect of this topic. Please let me […]

A Bad Year For Turkeys http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/a-bad-year-for-turkeys/ http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/a-bad-year-for-turkeys/#respond Wed, 09 Sep 2015 02:21:58 +0000 http://www.namimoonfarms.com/?p=780 If you’ve been following our Instagram page, you’ve seen that we recently lost a few dozen turkeys in a storm that dropped over three inches of rain. The forecast had called for rain, but not *that* much rain. Then, a day later, we get another one-to-two inches of rain in the morning. Luckily, we only lost a few birds after that one, but it was daytime and birds tend to do better with rain during the day, especially if things […]

Our Opening Gambit http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/opening-gambit/ http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/opening-gambit/#comments Tue, 17 Feb 2015 17:47:36 +0000 http://www.namimoonfarms.com/?p=654 Feel free to share this widely. 2015_NamiMoonFarmStory_FinalDraft I apologize for not typing the entire document out here. You’re going to have to click, one. more. time. After a month of writing, editing, asking people to read and re-read and then editing again…I was wary of trying to keep my work all up-to-date and accurate on our website. So, I wrote everything off-line on MSWord. Below, is a PDF document that shows our farm’s financials over the first five years of […]

Corn Comedy Hour! http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/corn-comedy-hour/ http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/corn-comedy-hour/#respond Wed, 05 Mar 2014 16:21:40 +0000 http://www.namimoonfarms.com/?p=502 Ok, so it’s dark humor, but I feel like I should be sharing the good *and* the bad with you. As you know, we planted our own corn last season. It was a bad year for corn because it was such a wet Spring, no one could plant it on time. Ours went in late, around mid-June, but it got in. Our corn took 85 days to get to maturity, so this is called “short corn”, or at least shorter […]

A Genuine Quandry… http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/genuine-quandry/ http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/genuine-quandry/#comments Mon, 17 Feb 2014 20:25:27 +0000 http://www.namimoonfarms.com/?p=467 I recently gave a presentation on marketing, and we talked briefly about the price of eggs. A lot of farmers don’t want to mess with trying to sell eggs because of people who sell them for $2/dozen as some sort of hobby, usually ‘around the neighborhood’ or ‘at the end of their driveway’. In other words, since so many consumers are focusing on price alone, the eggs that a farmer would produce as a part of his or her farm-business […]

We hope that, like us, you have spent the last week or two with family and/or friends, and that you’re having a wonderful holiday season. Now we are all faced with the eve of the new year, and as is often the case…we start to think. Typically, this gets us thinking about what we wanted to happen in the last year, what actually *did* happen and ultimately what might come to pass in the next year. Hopes, dreams, […]

The Price of a Turkey http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/the-price-of-a-turkey/ http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/the-price-of-a-turkey/#comments Wed, 13 Nov 2013 06:00:08 +0000 http://www.namimoonfarms.com/?p=390 As you probably know by now, I’m often fascinated by the prices I find at the local supermarkets. Why? Well, before I was farming, it was just a price. I knew it was cheap, but I had no idea how cheap it was when compared to the cost of production for a farm like ours. So nowadays I see the same prices, but I do a little mental math, compare it to an average and then wonder how this product […]

Grain Bin: The Final Chapter http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/grain-bin-the-final-chapter/ http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/grain-bin-the-final-chapter/#respond Sat, 09 Nov 2013 15:47:35 +0000 http://www.namimoonfarms.com/?p=382 Apologies for the slight delay here, but the grain bin has been up for a week now. This is a CMC (Custom Marketing Company) bin that is often referred to as an “18 by 5” because it is 18 feet wide and made up of 5 rings. It is between 20-30 feet tall, so that puts it just underneath the roof of the pole barn it’s next to. Why CMC? Well, for one, they have a patented “Pressure Cure” system […]

Thanksgiving Turkeys Are All Gobbled Up http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/thanksgiving-turkeys-are-all-gobbled-up/ http://www.namimoonfarms.com/news/thanksgiving-turkeys-are-all-gobbled-up/#respond Tue, 05 Nov 2013 13:38:04 +0000 http://www.namimoonfarms.com/?p=364 This is just a quick post to let you know that we’ve sold out of our Thanksgiving turkeys for the year. We keep a cushion of 15-20 birds just in case Mother Nature sends some coyotes–or some other predator–our way like she did a couple of years ago, but they are also spoken for via our waiting list (which is also no longer available). So we are really, truly sold out. We will try to raise more next year, as […]
