Application & Policy

SlowMoneyFarm Foodshare
As you’re considering options on this think about holidays as well as regular eating. Holiday turkeys and ham we’re thinking of in the spring! Perhaps you’ve seen exotic meats on internet websites at $30-40 per pound and up. Perhaps you are seeking a change in purchasing for health reasons, or you want to insure your meat was raised humanely.
This is an application of sorts to guide you in deciding what you would like to consider in your food choices. Please check and date, if applicable, when you would like your meats delivered. We will have some vegetables also, and herbs. Looking down the road further we will have fruits and nuts, Christmas trees and more.
Keep in mind it will be probably 6 months at the earliest for pigs, and later for beef. We can change many things but cannot rush nature! The heritage pigs will be a longer term return. If you choose a raised bed garden be sure to note if that’s on our property or yours.

Note – those with line through it are in progress but not yet available.
