We’re between crops!

So sorry, we won’t be at the Cedar City Downtown Farmer’s Market this week.

We’re between crops. Our summer crops are pretty much finished, and our fall crops aren’t quite ready.

So, what’s in the fall crops?

We’ll have leeks, turnips, tomatillos, more beets, and more squash. Also, we may have some potatoes. They’re pretty popular with Mom, so will only bring what she doesn’t want. Oh, and our tomatoes are finally ripening.

Watch for new recipes, as we’ll also have plenty of green tomatoes.

With the high price of pork, we have the best deal going. Order your winter pork from us. We hand-raise your hog with high quality natural foods. Your hog is sheltered from rough weather and carefully fattened for your freezer.

Cost of your whole hog is $425 (plus about $110 for cut and wrap).

Four Country Gals Produce and Custom Meat

Four Country Gals of Beryl, UT now provides Certified Organic Produce and “Home-Raised” Custom Pork, Lamb, and Goats. Our produce is available each summer at the Cedar City Downtown Farmer’s Market on Wednesday evenings. Our meat program provides you excellent quality pork, lamb and goat at most reasonable prices. Mom’s Hen House still provides fresh brown eggs… and you know the punchline. “We do all the work, and she gets all the money!”

After six years, it was time to reorganize this entire site. You can still find out how we came to be the “Four Country Gals”, and enjoy the stories of learning how to be farmers and country gals.

Even better, you can now keep up with the current events on our little paradise in the desert. You’ll find several new “pages” and “sub-pages”, as we’ve now organized this site more by activities than by date.

Going on 5 years later…

It’s been quite an adventure. Bev has graduated from Senior citizen bus driver to Enterprise school system bus driver. That’s a much better gig, as she’s off from the end of May until the middle of August. Also, she only works four hours a day… much better for both her mental and physical health.

Cindy’s back has finally caused her to quit working and get officially “disabled”. She’s still able to work on the computer, and if we don’t push it too hard, she can still climb up on the haystacks, and garden.

Mom has completely recovered from all her ills, and is back “in charge” of our lives. At 81 she still does about 90% of the cooking.

Shari has had a big health scare and adventure, culminating with open heart surgery, and a pacemaker. She now feels better than she can ever remember.
