IMG_5973Amity Musicals are still a bargain at only $18 a ticket, and well worth every penny.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you, but Tarzan tickets are sold out for Saturday, March 21 and Friday, March 27. There IS ONE (1) ticket left for opening night so, if you catch my drift, HURRY and try to get a ticket for one of the remaining performances before they are all gone.

I’ve been spending a lot of time at rehearsals lately and I am just amazed by this cast, the lighting, the music and everything about this show.

Tarzan, like Les Miserables, will certainly be one of my favorite Amity High School Musicals.

You’ve Clicked On The Ad, But Did You Order Your Fresh Chickens?

This batch is sold out

This batch is sold out

A small business success story:

Look over to the right, see that Ad for Cedar Hill Farm that’s been online for more than a week? Well, if you procrastinated and didn’t order your fresh chickens this time, it’s too late — they are all sold out — again.

Cedar Hill Farm is run by Stephen and Rachel Bespuda, a young couple that both come from a long line of farmers.

They grow hay, straw, and corn right here in Orange.

They offer beef year-round (it may not be readily available, so everything is pre-ordered). The steers are pasture raised, and when the pastures are not suitable for grazing, the steers are fed locally grown hay and corn silage, from right here in Orange.

The beef is sold by the quarter or side. It is cut, wrapped, labeled, and frozen. You get steaks, roast, and ground beef.

in 2009 they began selling Thanksgiving Turkeys, to rave reviews, and then 2010 they started selling chickens in the spring and summer.

The chickens and turkeys start their lives indoors with heat lamps and the warmth they need to be healthy, at 3 weeks in nice weather they go outside and roam the farm (free range).

The chickens and turkeys are sold fresh and whole (turkeys are raised for Thanksgiving)—Pre-Order ONLY — and you must call 203-889-7282 or e-mail cedarhillfarmct@gmail.com for information or to place an order.

Availability of the products are posted on their Facebook pageThe current message is “We have sold out of chickens! We are considering raising another batch of chickens in late fall/early winter, please let us know if you would be interested!”

Why Buy Fresh and Local?

So, what’s the difference between store bought and these Orange raised free range chickens?

Stephen uses the analogy, “Take a tomato that you grow in your garden compared to one that you get from a supermarket you can tell the difference in quality from the flavor and texture.”

Rachel added, “It’s just fresh, locally grown, raised correctly and humanely, and something that we care deeply about, not something we take for granted,” she said. “Even thought we’ve had it all of our lives, we know the work that goes into it. We appreciate the fact that not everyone has the opportunity to purchase fresh meat that is grown in the same town they live in.”

“This is the meat that we eat ourselves,” Stephen said.

There is no 24/7 farm stand, but the system works for regular customers.

Existing customers on the mailing list receive postcards or e-mails when it’s time to order the chickens.

The last two batch of chickens also sold out, so when you see the Cedar Hill ad pop up on Orange Live get busy and pre-order yours immediately.

I have heard nothing but good things about the Cedar Hill Chickens, and I am very happy to see Stephen and Rachel doing so well in their business.
