Here's the order form. For folks who have already emailed me (as of 8:15 pm), don't fill it out--I'll fill one out for you so I don't have duplicate emails.
Everyone else who is placing an order, fill out the form and email it to me bamsca order form.doc .

Hi Everyone,

First of all, please EMAIL your responses to me at rydyda AT gmail DOT com.

Godfrey Family Farm will deliver chickens and eggs on July 24th, location and time TBD. If this date does not work, perhaps try to have a significant other/friend/neighbor/coworker pick up your order for you. I do not have additional freezer/fridge space.

I (we) think the easiest thing to do is to charge a flat rate of $15 per bird which covers their target price of a 4 lb bird at $3.50 per pound plus the $1 delivery charge/bird. They will email me an order form later today. Once I have confirmation from interested people, I will send off a check to Godfrey Family Farm for the appropriate amount of chickens. Please confirm your order with me BY Friday, July 17th so that I can send payment on Saturday. Then, bring EXACT change when you pick up your order on the 24th.

For everyone who has indicated that they want chicken and/or eggs, please *email* me with exact quantities of each. Also, please provide your name, address, email address and a contact number for you. If you will have someone else picking up your order, please provide me with their contact information. Once I receive an order form, I will pass that along.

So in summary
1. EMAIL all correspondence
2. Confirm your order by Friday, the 17th (order form will be sent out today/tomorrow)
3. Pick up is July 24th, location and time TBD
4. Cost: $15/chicken; $4.50/dozen for large eggs; $6/dozen for double yolked jumbos
5. Provide FULL contact information for yourself and the pickup party (if someone other than yourself)
6. Bring exact change when you pick up your order

Hi Everyone,

I am looking into purchasing chickens, eggs and possibly going in on the purchase of a pig with a few folks from Godfrey family farm.
The next possible slaughter date for chickens would be approximately July 24th and they need a minimum of 25 chickens to fill the order, with other future dates tentatively scheduled for the 3rd and 4th weeks of August, the 3rd week of September and the first or second week of October. Chickens are frozen and are $3.50/lb and they are expected to be in the 3-5 lb range.

Eggs are $4.50 per dozen for large and $6 per dozen for double-yolked jumbos.

Pastured pork--will go to the butcher around the 3rd week of October with a target live weight of 200-250 lbs. Pork is $3.50 per pound based on hanging weight for a whole pig, $3.75 per pound (hanging weight) for a half pig.

Pasture-raised veal (raised outside, uncaged on pasture, grass/alfalfa hay and lots of milk) will be ready to butcher the 2nd week of September.

They also sell their neighbor's honey.

Please contact me if you are interested.

Hey, all,
Our site is experiencing some difficulties. If your comments are disappearing or your home pages are freaking out, please rest assured that I'm working to figure out what's up.

Did everyone see the chickens offered by Marin Sun Farms?

Looks to me like one of you needs to take the reins and organize a meat purchase. There's no central administrator, so unless someone decides to direct an actual order, no meat will become available. I'm the person who started this site, but I don't actually organize the buys for you, so there's no one to "let you know" other than each other. I'm happy to help with the logistics as soon as someone in this group decides to buy an animal.
Good luck!

Hi, I would also like to get some pork, beef, poultry, bison, turkey and eggs. Please let me know when the next group buys will be for any of these. Thanks.

I am a new member. Keep me posted on what meats you have available for sharing, especially pork, beef and poultry. Happy to have local folks with whom to share.

For anyone interested there are still tickets available for the day trip on Sun, April 26 to Shake the Hand that Feeds You - Farm Tour. Its 2 farms in one afternoon, to Devil's Gulch and Red Hill Farm to meet Mark Pasternak and Don Gilardi, who raise sustainable lamb and pork. The tour also includes a charter bus ride to/from, which is a great way to enjoy some red wine and beer during the adventure, and not worry about driving yourself. BAMSCA - and meatsharing will be discussed by the originator and Meat CSA leader Tamar Adler, on the bus and gourmet snacks will be served. Its BYOPicnic. Its $50 for Slow Food members, and $55 for non-members. Tickets can be found at Brown Paper tickets or go to homepage to take you to the ticket site.

Hey, there. Tamar here. I started BAMCSA and this site with Gordon Jenkins's help. How's the process going? Do you need any help getting to the next stage of purchase? Do let me know. I'm reworking the Toolbox section right now!
Good luck.
