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
Our meat share comes in three sizes:
|Small: $225||You don’t have a chest freezer and you like the simplicity of ground meats and pre-cut chicken.
25 pounds* of local, organically-raised meat including ground beef, multiple flavors of sausage, and cut-up chicken ready for no-hassle cooking.
|Medium: $300||You might even call this one “SMedium” – Just a little bigger than “small”, no chest freezer required, but a larger variety of cuts than a small share.
35 pounds* of local, organically-raised meat including all the meats in the Small Share, plus whole chicken, bacon, steak and other cuts that very with the season (e.g. a roast, pork chops, etc.).
|You are a true carnivore and you have the freezer space to support your love of a large variety of good meats.
75 pounds* of local, organically-raised meat including all the meats in a Medium Share, plus other cuts like ribs, brisket or kielbasa.
We also offer the following “extra” meat boxes:
|Organs and Extras Box: $25||15 pounds* of cuts we don’t include in standard shares including pork leaf lard (perfect for rendering and making pastries), pork fat back, beef liver, beef tongue, beef heart and chicken livers.|
|Bone Broth Box: $25||15 pounds* of chicken backs, chicken necks, beef and pork soup bones. Perfect for making soup stock.|
* 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 roughly once every three months. 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.
