This Saturday (Labor Day weekend) at the Sewickley farm market, we will have St. Louis Ribs at 50% off, as well as Lamb Loin Chops at 25% off!  We will be sampling our Hot Dogs (made from our ground pork) and they will be 20% off!  All would be great on a grill!

Also, we are currently taking orders for grass-fed 1/4 beef, which we only do in the fall.  Half/whole pigs are available year round as ready & we will have more ready in about a month.
