Hi all!


There is so much going on at the farm that I don't know where to start. We have just finished lambing and what can I say they are sooo cute. Special shout out to all of our amazing ewes that did an fantastic job. More piglets set to born this week and the new laying hens have arrived and are enjoying their new egg-mobiles. We still have our Livestock Guardian Dog puppies for a few more weeks before they go to their new farm homes. Needless to say it is a fun time on the farm.

In other big, late breaking news we are opening up our on-farm store at Boesch Farm (830 South Rd. East Greenwich, RI) TOMORROW, Saturday April 27 from 9am-1pm. For all of you southern Rhode Islanders this is an opportunity to load up on all of our amazing products - grass-fed beef & lamb, pastured pork, chicken, turkey and free range chicken and duck eggs!!! TOMORROW ONLY  the first 10 customers to the store receive a free dozen eggs and all customers get a ticket for a chance to win a Pat's Pastured Gift Certificate for $30 (redeemable at the store or farmers' market). Visiting the store is also a great chance to visit with all of animals and see the new farm. 

Finally, there are still a few Meat & Poultry CSA shares available for the Spring/Summer 2012 season. You can find the sign up form at our website www.patspastured.com. Sign up soon because there is only a few weeks left before it starts.

We continue to be at the Hope Artiste Village Wintertime Farmers' Market every Saturday 10am-1pm,  through May 12.

Thanks again for all of your support.

Spring is officially upon us and the weather has been amazing. The farm is bustling with new life - piglets, baby chicks, puppies and in the upcoming weeks lambs. We are excited to offer another season of our popular Meat/Poultry CSA program. It is a great way to support a local farm and get delicious locally raised grass-fed and pasture-raised meat. Please check out the link below for more details about the program. The FAQ page should answer any of your questions but if you need any additional information please send us an email at patspastured@gmail.com. This is a very popular program and the spaces fill up quickly, so don't delay sending in your sign up form and payment.

Thanks again for supporting our farm!

Warm regards,

Pat & the Pat's Pastured Crew

Happy Holidays!!

Hope everyone is enjoying the amazing weather we have been having. It has really helped us out this year to have warm days and nights as we furiously move equipment, animals and myself  to the new farm in East Greenwich. The chickens are happy in their new hoophouse (which will hopefully mean and increase in egg production) and the sheep and dairy cows should be over in a week. Follow by our fabulous piggies.

With the holidays upon us I wanted to send out an email about all of the places you can pick up our products in the next week. We have our delicious FREE-RANGE TURKEYS available (frozen & vacuum sealed)  – Standard White Turkeys 10-17 lbs and Broad Bronze Turkeys 22-26lbs. They are ON SALE for the holidays at $5.00lb for either. We also have a big selection of grass-fed beef (very limited amount of rib roasts), lamb and chicken parts available. And for your baking and cooking needs we should have a good selection of eggs from our free-range hens.

Here’s where you can find us this coming week:
