Our Meat is Still Available.
Do you need items that are sold out online? We have our products available at all of our own locations every week for you to come and purchase what you need. During this time of unprecedented demand for our meats we would like to reassure our customers that all of our products are available every week. We are struggling to keep up with our online store however this does not indicate that we are out of these items. It just means that we have not had time to make up the discounted boxes for the website or do not have extra frozen of those items that week. If you need these items that are sold out online please come into one of our locations and pickup a couple packages.
Looking ahead we do not see any issues in providing our customers access to our meats every week. We raise all of our own organic chicken, beef, pork, turkey and eggs. We process, cut and package all of our chickens and turkey here on the farm. Our beef and pork are processed at a small, local independent processor, chilled and then brought back to the farm where it is cut and packaged. We do not use the massive processing plants that are currently in the news. Our Sausages are made here on the farm using our own meat, organic spices, and organic maple syrup and honey. So far there have been no issues in getting the materials we need to continue raising our animals, processing, cutting and packaging the meat and making the sausages. This is the benefit of purchasing directly from a small local producer.
Due to the increase in demand for our products you will see some per family purchase limits placed on items at our own locations. These limits are put in place in order to allow as many people as possible to have access to our meats and eggs when they need them. For example; due to another sudden increase in demand for our eggs this week we will be limiting eggs to three dozen per family at all of our own locations. If you are unable to get some of the items you would like this week be reassured that we have more product coming next week.
