Indian Summer

Golden Eagles in Berne From Al Deitz: "Three days straight in October of 2009, I passed the field on the east side of Switzkill Road near the Foxenkill Bridge and saw this Golden Eagle feeding on a deer carcus. On the third day I had my camera, and when I took this photo from my car, I could hear the eagle tear the meat from the bones . When I left the car for a closer photo, this spooked eagle would fly up into a tree to join it's mate. Golden Eagles are rare in Albany County. They are more common in New Hampshire and occasionally seen near Tupper Lake. They're more common out west. Golden Eagles are slightly larger than Bald Eagles. I suspect these two lived on West Mt."

Heldeberg Market Turkeys
The Heldeberg Market will be selling locally raised turkeys for Thanksgiving this year. Varieties will include broad-breasted white turkeys, and heritage breeds with darker meat. If you are planning to order a turkey, please complete the one-question survey linked here: Turkey Survey.
This will let us know how many turkeys to reserve with our farmers.
Thank you for supporting our local farms!
