Hello fellow island dwellers, let's get together and buy a cow. Once we get a few interested folks, we can do it. Then, an island BBQ might be in order!

Hi All,

We are doing a harvest in time for the holidays. If you are interested in 100% grass-fed beef please contact me ASAP. I will need to receive your deposit by Nov 11th for this harvest and to offer this year's pricing. We sell cow shares at whole ($5.49/lb). half ($5.80/lb), and quarter ($6.00/lb). This pricing is based on the final NET weight of your share and INCLUDES the butcher's fees! We make it as simple as possible. You may visit our website at for more information. My direct phone number is 510.482.4420 x238.

Sizzling September! Quarter Steer of the best tasting, 100% pasture raised, grass fed beef at $5.40/lb.  $4.40/lb.! Lock in your annual meat before prices hit the ceiling due to the extreme drought. More info at

Check with Godfrey Family Farms.  They have a CSA, but often have extra chickens and do monthly deliveries to Emeryville.  You can contact thru their website by the same name.

I'm interested in buying whole chickens. We currently buy Miller Ranch grass fed beef- it's great.  Anyone know of a ranch/farm to buy chicken from?

I may be looking to split a lamb and a veal calf with people. Delivery would be Dec. 11th. All pastured, grass fed, etc. The veal calf is a dairy calf that would have normally been killed at birth, but was raised in a pasture instead. Anyone interested? Is this group still active????

Reply to the discussion above by Kim. I believe there are still shares available in their beef buy, but the deadline is this Friday.

Hi all,

People are getting together to purchase pork from Godfrey Family Farm. Details are on the discussions on the Oakland/Dimond group. Please read them to answer any questions.

I've found takers for the other half of my pig, but there's another pig available and only one taker so far for 1/8th for that one.

Hi Lynn - Thanks so much, but no lamb for me! Masut Beef is having a beef sale next Friday August 28th at the Wooden Duck in Berkeley. I purchased 50 lbs. a few months ago, and love it! If you are interested, please visit
