Pictured Above: A butt chop with AMAZING MARBLING. Some of you may not be a big fan of fat- and there are many valid reasons on why one should be careful with how much fat they intake.
Something to know about fat from animals: IT'S WHERE THE FLAVOURS AT!! Beef or Pork - Fat makes a massive difference when it comes to taste. If you consider yourself a meat connoisseur, you want the good marbling.
So what's new?
- We hope you all had good times & good health this past holiday and in welcoming the new year.
- We ourselves had a nice break & are ready to get back to work! (Sort of ... hehe)
SUMMER SEASON SIGN UP- coming soon!
- We are looking to get sign ups open by the end of this month
- As current/previous members- you get first crack at signing up!
- We will be offering discounts this year;
- EARLY BIRD: Sign up within the (TBD) time frame AND pay in full to receive 5% off your entire order
- Super Duper Cooper Special: Spend over $1499 on shares & receive 5% off.
- Potential to save 10% off your entire order!
- Do not wait! We will eventually open up to the public & we do have high potential to sell out.
Extras - Potentially switching to a better shopping experience
- Right now we have to hand write A LOT of stickers for frozen item orders (such as pre-made meals or meat) due to system limitations. Making our admin. system very inefficient & leaves us vulnerable to making mistakes when it comes to making orders (such as missing an item in you order!)
- HARVIE has been working with us on a way to upgrade this so that we can reduce our human error
- Be pre-pared to possibly see a different look & access to shop our extras over the next couple of months
Have home delivery?
- Have a cooler on your porch for us to put your share in to keep it safe from the elements.
PLEASE Return Boxes & Red Freezer Bags!
We also take back mason jars & 12 hole Egg Cartons
- We like to reuse as much as we can :)
- leave them out your next delivery for the driver to get when they drop off your next order.
- If you are a pick up, you can leave the items at that location and we will grab them.
- If your red bag has a water bottle in it, leave it in! It's an icepack to help keep the items frozen during delivery. We refreeze them and use them multiple times.
If you &/or your family are currently quarantined, Please keep your items for now.
