Can you please provide more details of what the chickens are fed? Are they actually pastured? Or just "free range" by the corporate definition? Thanks!
Rockin MC Ranch will be in the Berkeley area on Saturday September 26 for a chicken delivery.
If you would like to order a NON GMO free ranged chicken please message me and I can let you know where we will meet up. They are $25.00 each and all over 5 pounds and look and taste amazing! They are process naturally with no chemicals, and have never been feed any antibiotics or hormones of any kind!
My next batch will not be available until the end of November.
I also have a few turkeys left for Thanksgiving is anyone would like to reserve one. They are $6.00 per pound and average between 22-24 pounds. Non GMO free range and never fed any antibiotics or hormones, processed naturally and professionally packaged.
Please message me if you would like a chicken delivery this Saturday.

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 www.somarfarms.com for more information. My direct phone number is 510.482.4420 x238.
Desmond and Rebecca - I joined a few months ago. I noticed that the San Jose thread is much more active, so I joined up with them (although I live in SF) They just finished ordering a cow and a pig. Maybe head over to that thread and post there? I got in on the cow order but missed out on the pig. I'd be down for splitting a lamb with a couple of folks if interested
SoMar Farms offers delicious 100% pasture raised, grass-fed beef and we deliver to Downtown Oakland! We sell beef by the quarter, half, or whole cow for rates as low as $5.49/lb of CONSUMABLE WEIGHT! This includes all the butcher fees! It doesn't get much simpler than this. If you'd like more information, please visit www.SoMarFarms.com or contact Hastee at 510.482.4420 x238
We look forward to hearing from you!
Cheers to healthy living,
I'm excited to see new people!. At this time, I don't need any more meat, although lambing season should be going on about now. Maybe in another month or two I'll be ready to buy some.
I recommend searching at a couple of farms: Stemple Creek Ranch has beef and lamb, http://stemplecreek.com/, and Winddancer Ranch has pork, beef, lamb, turkeys, rabbit... http://www.winddancerranch.us/
Other ranchers sometimes post something here when they meat available.
If you want to order meat, post on here to find someone who wants to go in with you. When I order a quarter cow, I usually want at least two other people to share it, and three others is not too much. A quarter cow can be up to 400 pounds. You can split a pig with one or two other people, and a lamb can go with two, or even just one. Of course, it all depends on how much storage space you have and how many people you are feeding. A quarter cow lasts me more than a year - there's just two of us here.
Once you have a group, just call the farm or send an email. Stemple Creek has an online ordering form but it's never worked for me. I always end up having to send an email. You place your order and leave a deposit. They'll give you an approximate time for pick up - usually six weeks or more - depends on when they are harvesting. You may have to fill out a form for the butcher. When the meat is ready, the butcher will call you. You can pick the meat up at the butchers, usually somewhere around Petaluma. The meat is frozen, but take plenty of coolers to contain it all.
It's best to have one person do all the ordering, payment, and pick up. Arrange pickup date and time with everyone, and have a place to meet your partners. I usually just have them come to my house. We divide up the meat, they pay me for their portion and everyone takes their meat home. It always works just fine.
You have to be flexible when you divide the meat. It's impossible for everyone to get exactly the same portions and sizes.
The meat is wonderful, btw. Have fun, and I'm happy to answer any questions.
Thanks for mentioning that Desmond- I just joined last night & am interested also. ~Rebecca
Just joined this site and really hoping to buy some beef, lamb, pig or any good meat! Please let me know if anyone else is interested. I have no idea how this works but seems to be dead since last year. Thanks!
I'm fine with either an eighth or a sixteenth. Thanks for doing all the groundwork Marlene!
