NancySue Lootens Reid Great chart

January 31, 2016 at 6:01 am

Workers' Food Cooperative The chart makes it look like there's nothing available between October & June, which we know isn't true, since we've been feasting on all sorts of your goodies all winter! Maybe another symbol could be added for storage crops, so people can see all the great local produce that is available after the growing season?

Renewal registration forms have been sent out. If you are currently a shareholder for the 2015/16 season please look in your eMail. Forms for new members are posted on our website.

We have made some changes for the 2016/17 season. The winter share now runs from January through March. We have added a month. Distributions are every other week. We now offer a 10 month CSA! We have also added organic citrus as part of the share. Local apples will continue to be offered.

The season extension runs from November to December. Because Christmas is mid-week this year, the share will have an extra week of distribution. This share will continue to feature greens from storage, the field and our greenhouses. Roots and the other storage crops will continue to be free choice. Apples and pears will be part of this share.

We have a great crew hired which is our most experienced to date. We will be beginning the season with a lot of excitement. Please join us for what we hope will be another bountiful season.

Amy Melton Prentiss I am a current shareholder. Can the season extension be added to the winter share?

We buy our cattle from a reputable dealer who knows what kind of animals we want. They are all brucellosis free and healthy when they arrive on our farm. All spring, summer and some of the fall, the cattle are pastured on a diverse mix of pasture grasses. In the winter the cattle are kept in our yard so that our fields are protected from the impact of their hooves. They are fed our own hay and baleage when the weather is really cold. We don’t feed our cattle grain, and so they don’t receive antibiotics, hormones or animal by-products in their feed. We use the manure and bedding from the yard as compost that is spread throughout the farm to balance the soil with organic matter. Because our cattle are raised completely on grass they are lean and have a delicious rich beef flavor. You can find more information about the advantages of grass fed meat from Jo Robinson’s web sitewww.eatwild.com. When cooking grass fed beef it is best to cook it slowly and at low temperatures, as the high heat will toughen the protein.

To order a quarter (or more) beef from us contact us to check on availability. We take a $20 deposit for each 1/4 you order at the time of ordering. This deposit places your order.

The beef should be generally ready for butchering in the winter months.

You can expect about 75-90lbs of meat (for a quarter order) to put into your freezer. You will need about 5-7 cubic feet of freezer space to store your ¼ order. You are charged on the hanging weight, which for a quarter is about 125-160lb. at a cost of $3.75/lb. (What you can expect to take home is about 40% less than the hanging weight due to trimming and de-boning.) You also pay the butcher for their services which adds about $0.60/lb. (some unusual cutting instruction and cyrovac involve additional costs). (For your budgeting figure about $4.35/lb. total cost for your order on the hanging weight figure). It is approximately 10-15 days after the beef hangs and then is butchered that your order will be ready. You’ll be picking up your order directly from the butcher, Jim Simon’s Meats in Alden, NY. We’ll invoice you by email based on the animal’s hanging weight.

Our cow sizes and weights are variable, expected poundage is approximate. Quantities vary according to how you specify your butchering and how large or small the cow is. Here’s a very approximate breakdown of quantities for a quarter cow.
