Shoulder Roast Special (March 2018 Update)

(**SOLD OUT**)!
For a short time we are offering a handful of beef shoulder roast cases at over a 30% discount. Here are the details:

- 40 pound box of 100% grass-fed beef shoulder roast
- $170 for the case ($4.25/pound)
- Average roast size between 3-5 pounds
- Ready during farm hours
- Limited quantity on hand

These are boxed and ready to go - just ask in the store when you stop by.

Shoulders (a.k.a. Chuck Roast) are one of my favorites to cook. They have beautiful marbling throughout and shred so easily. The meat is tender, moist, and full of flavor. The photo shows one cooked on low in a crock pot for ten hours then shredded to perfection.

(Offer good while supplies last. Offer applies only to CASES of beef shoulder roasts, not individual roasts in the UNM store.)

WINTER WONDERLAND
We finally received a significant amount of snow after a couple of storms in February. Some of our dairy gals decided to come out and investigate once the powder stopped falling. Our milk cows call the red barn behind them home, but actually prefer to spend the majority of their time outside. During harsh weather they will bed down inside where we have a soft bed of fresh sawdust waiting for them.


BULK ORDERS FOR APRIL
Our next bulk orders will be available APRIL19 & 21. Deposits are due SUNDAY, APRIL 1. Corriente & Angus beef, pork, lamb and salmon are all available. Do you want to try our meat before you make a big purchase? Stop by our farm store and pick up some separate cuts.





CHICKEN CHECK-IN
We're asked often when we'll have our pastured chicken back in stock. Honestly, we don't know. We've tried to guess on some dates recently, but the birds are taking their time and still have a couple of pounds to gain before they'll be at a good harvest weight. Raising chickens in the winter months is difficult and long. They grow so much more slowly, take extra care, and are more susceptible to the weather. So at this point we don't have an estimated date, but we will send out an email when we know they'll be ready. And we anticipate having them on a fairly consistent basis again beginning in June.


HAPPY, HEALTHY PETS
Your furry friends will love you when you bring home a pint of this. Raw Colostrum just bottled. Some of our cows give extra and it's perfect for your pets. We have a great supply of it right now - $8/pint. Just ask at the counter when you're in the store. (For animal consumption only)



 

WISE WORDS
Food is not just fuel.
Food is about family,
food is about community,
food is about identity.
And we nourish all those things when we eat well.
