As you all know hay prices have gone haywire with astronomical prices ..from $4 per bale to $15 per bale. As the drought continues fewer people will be able to maintain their herds in New Mexico. Limited irrigation water is available to those who grow hay. Without rain there will also be limited pastureland available for all livestock. So come on in to Santa Fe Farmers Market and stock up, as much as you can before prices increase further. There is a limited supply of yak available as it is ... also, I will not be at the Santa Fe Farmers Market on Saturday May 18th so come along this weekend. The next supply of ground yak will be available early June. So .... place your orders BEFORE the end of the day today, Friday, so that your steaks can be ready for a quick pickup. Place your orders either by phone:(575) 737-8820. or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org pictures are of Flat Iron steak, Tri Tip, New York Strip and Rib Eye Steaks.

Taos Mountain Yak will be absent from the market tomorrow. Sorry about that. Have a great day! Get out early before the winds fly in!! The garden is not this prolific or lush this year. These two vases contained 80 tulips to mark a local rancher's 80th birthday.

Huckleberry has been the first to come for combing. Little shoots of grass are starting to show through the dry dirt. The yaks are feeling ready to be combed and sidle up for attention. There are still extreme fluctuations in temperatures so come along and see the head bands and fingerless mittens we have available. Do try to get into the habit of placing orders for your meat. As the weather gets warmer it is easier to be bring only that meat which has been ordered. I do transport meat product in a freezer and display the meat in a small glass fronted refrigerator at the market. So look out for our wonderful grass fed yak products. We do accept credit cards. The market is presently open from 8am till 1pm. Hope to see a good turnout before Easter weekend.
