The last day of the Year

Today is the last day of 2013. It has been so hot every where - we are constantly filling up wallows so that the pigs can keep cool! The heat just evaporates the water as quick as we top up!

A couple of things.

I've just had to change the settings for people that want to comment. I'm getting too much spam, so hopefully what I've done will fix it. If you try and comment and can't, please send me an email to anabank@bigpond.com

I will be posting the market dates and delivery dates over the next couple of days. Just a heads up though, we will be going to Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast early February. And then out to the Central Highlands late February. We are also going to be going to the 1770 Markets every second Sunday of the Month. Calliope Markets are out until mid year, because they clash with our Rocky dates. So Gladstone people can order and I'll deliver when I go to 1770.

Yeppoon Markets this coming weekend!

Stay cool and drink plenty of water!

ABC News

We've made the news (well, not front page) a bit lately. First we were in the Sunday Mail and now we've been on the ABC radio. This link will take you to this ABC story and some pictures.

Will be posting the market dates over the next few days!

December Doings

We have the last market in Rocky/Yeppoon this weekend. Please come along and stock up for Christmas. At this stage we won’t be back at these Markets until 19/20 of January. None of our pork, ham or bacon has been frozen and because it is cryvacced, it keeps really well in the freezer if you want to get a bit more than usual to get you through.

Yeppoon Community Markets at the Showgrounds on Saturday
Kern Arcade Markets, Rockhampton on Sunday

Thursday the 19th December will see us delivering our last orders and Christmas Hams to the Gladstone Region. We then head off on Saturday to Southern Qld. Sunday 22nd December we'll drive down to Brisbane and the Gold Coast and then back to Buderim, where we plan to stop for a few days and have Christmas with Lucy's family.
It will be great to have a break from the farm. The sad part is that we have to leave one of our boys behind to look after the farm and the pigs. Unfortunately that's what is involved when you have farm like ours - someone needs to be here all the time. One of our sons said that he would stay so that Kim and I can have a break away!
Look forward to seeing you at one of our markets or on the delivery runs over the next week, however if we don’t catchup, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas, filled with peace and love and laughter. And a healthy and happy 2014!

Thank you all for your support of our business. We love what we are doing and are really grateful for the support all our customers give us, as we couldn’t do it without you!

I'll be posting our market dates and deliveries for 2014 over the Christmas break.
Take care and happy holiday season!

From all the House Family
