Hello folks, as you know, I’ve been looking for farmers to work with since I moved here, but haven’t had as much time to do so as I would have liked. Luckily one of my friends told me about Paulie’s Pasture, a small farm in Lee county 10 miles e. of Dickson, IL, 15 miles west Rochelle.
Paul raises lots of different animals on pasture. I am picky about eggs, so I was delighted to receive some of his. I usually buy my eggs from the farmers at the Green City market and they are OK, but these eggs are so much better. The creamy yolks are bright orange like marigold flowers. Right now Paulie has eggs to sell for $4 a dozen, plus whole chickens at $3.70 per lb. Discounts and extra products like vegetables and ducks are offered if you become a regular subscriber. I am going to buy some more next week if any of you would like to arrange a drop-off 5/24. If you are interested, definitely suggest a location. I live in Lincoln Park at Fullerton and Clark and that could work, but you know they call it “Lincoln hard-to-park” for a reason. If you work downtown, Paul could also drop off your order at your office during the day. If you do RSVP, I will contact you to get your exact order and send a receipt with how much to bring- please bring cash only!
It might also be a great option to discuss splitting some more of his products together. I have already told him I’m definitely into getting a goat and a lamb (or more). We could also split a pig. Let me know if you are interested, either we could meet for drinks after the drop off Thurs or something, or just email me.
