Meat Shares for all Seasons
Our meat shares provide local, organically-raised meats in spring, summer, fall and winter.
Note: The summer meat share will be tailored towards your grilling needs. A medium summer share is similar to what we used to call a “grill share”. The winter meat share will be more likely to make you think of soups and stews. More details can be found on the “sample share” page.
Share Sizes and Costs
25 pounds* of local, organically-raised meat including ground beef, multiple flavors of sausage, and cut-up chicken ready for no-hassle cooking.
35 pounds* of local, organically-raised meat including all the meats in the Small Share, plus bacon, pork roast or ham, steak, whole chicken, and chicken “stock packs” for making homemade soup.
75 pounds* of local, organically-raised meat including all the meats in a Medium Share, plus ribs, brisket and a beef roast.
* Weights listed are approximate. Actual weights will be within a pound or two of our estimates.
When and Where are Meat Shares Available?
Meat shares are available once per season. The exact dates can vary a little, but we expect spring shares in March, Summer shares in June, Fall shares in September, and winter shares in December. As each season approaches, we will post details about dates, times and locations under the “When & Where” section.
Can I choose what kinds of meats are in a share?
Each box will include roughly the same cuts of beef, pork and chicken. When you pick up your share you’re welcome to browse through the boxes and even “swap” with other shareholders here at the farm.
Do you raise the animals yourselves?
We raise pigs and chickens here at the farm. For all our beef and some pork and chicken, we work with partner farms.
Can I split a meat share or get a half share?
If you choose to split your share with a friend (because, for example, you want to get the value of a large share but don’t have the freezer space for it), you’ll find *most* cuts are easy enough to split, but you may need to do some negotiating about who gets the “odd” pack of bacon and who gets the only beef roast, etc.
