Meat Farm Happenings for June 2, 2020

Posted on May 31st, 2020 by Rae Strobel Barr

Hello friends, if you got a meat share last week, we hope you are enjoying it!     IF this is your first week for Meat delivery: Welcome to the first Barr Farms Meat share of summer 2020.    Logistics and news follow.    We are very limited on chicken right now, but will have Fresh Chicken available next week!

Quick logistics note:   If you are getting both Veg and Meat shares, PLEASE be sure you have both before you leave pickup!   please check your Veg Box if you have a small meat may be in a sealed container.    Also, if you have a large meat order, please check for a cardboard and Stryrofoam cooler box at pickup.   WE do plan to reuse these styrofoam boxes--at $4-5 each we really need too. (note they will be quarantined and not reused for at least 2 weeks).

Farm News:     With high demand you will be happy to know you can count on us all season long!   We have stocked up for the start of the CSA!   Our only concern with production is being able to continue to get dates at the butcher.   right now that looks pretty secure for the summer, but the small processors are suffering from an overload of demand also.   Fortunately we have long-standing relationships with our processors and haven't had any issues getting animals butchered.   We hope this continues!
