Beef Standing Rib Roast….

CHRISTMAS SPECIAL ORDER MONTH – Standing Rib Roasts, Tenderloins ( Beef or Pork!), Frenched Rack of Lamb, Beef Briskets and many more! If you want something for your Holiday meal, would you let us know ASAP? You are getting the very first crack at them! You can add any of these cuts to your regular share or request them even if you are not getting a share this month.

I love seeing all the ways you use our meats, so many colorful and delicious looking recipes. Winter seems to give us more time to play with recipes and if you have one you love, send it our way!


Our Otto will be 6 months at the end of the month! Check out this reel to see how big he has gotten! 

Want to add any of Douglas’s Sourdough bread, bagels or COOKIES??!! Order deadline is this Sunday evening ( Nov. 26th) so he has time to get it all baked, packaged and to us.

We are so thankful to have been able to serve you this past year. Each package of beef, pork, chicken, lamb that has been enjoyed by your family has supported several families here, sequestered untold amounts of carbon, allowed wildlife to flourish, and kept our local economy churning right along. The past year has been unusually hard, and we haven’t shared a lot as the ‘rough’ just keeps coming. Just thankful for each of you, the notes of encouragement and the support that allows us to keep going. Lots of life ahead, the curves in the road just mean adventure is ahead!

We pray for each of you, that your year has been blessed to overflowing. That if we can serve a family in need, or help you, that you would reach out and know you are far more than ‘just’ a CSA member. May you all have a blessed Thanksgiving!
