We Bought a Farm: Breaking Even on the Turkeys
It feels SO wonderful to say that we have officially broken even on our turkey sales. This is a great accomplishment on a farm. This means that we can now eat the rest of the turkey meat in our freezer for free.
We had 48 turkeys. We sold about 25 of them to reach our $3,000 amount. This is how much it cost to purchase the turkeys and to feed them for 18 weeks. We have now been making lots of ground turkey and will celebrate throughout the rest of the year eating our meat for free.
FREE of course is an overblown word. We are NOT counting the countless hours we put into taking care of these turkeys. Our WWOOFer Mary Ann was by far the most involved with the turkeys!
