Hi Nancy.
I know it's been a while since we agreed to order beef. I checked with Lisa at Stemple Creek and she's says the dry weather has caused the cattle to fatten up more slowly. I've asked her to give me an estimate on a date, which I'll pass on to you as soon as I have it. In the meantime, do you have a pressing need for the beef sooner? She said she would try to accommodate us as best she can.
I hope this isn't a problem for you. Let me know. For the record, the beef has been ordered and paid for already. I ordered it on February 28.

Nancy, it looks like we may have four people willing to share. Will 1/16 be enough for you?

I don't know of anyone right now, but I posted a question on the group page. We'll see what happens. I'll also post something on the Mt. Diablo group.

Hi Nancy. I would like to get some beef, if you're up for that. I don't know how much room you have, storage-wise, but I can handle only 1/16 of a cow. Usually the smallest section you can buy is a quarter.  I'm happy to do all the legwork  of ordering and pickup (which is at a butcher shop in Petaluma). When I pick up, I usually have people come to my house to get their share.

Stemple Creek says that a quarter cow is about 6 brown grocery bags of meat, if that helps with your figuring. I suppose I could handle two bags worth, if we can find one other person, or if you can handle all the rest! For us (there's two of us), two bags usually last 9 months to a year.

Let me know if you're interested!

Hi Nancy,

I saw your question in my email, but I don't see it when I look on the group's page. This always happens, but I don't know why, nor what to do about it. Anyway, to answer your question about what meat is available:

I often buy meat from Wind Dancer Ranch or Stemple Creek Ranch. I always have trouble finding people who want to split the shares, so let me know if you are interested in that. I've already ordered half a pig from Wind Dancer, which I'm splitting with my daughter.  But I'm looking for people to purchase beef. I think we usually need four people to split a quarter cow.

I usually get lamb and pork from Wind Dancer, and beef from Stemple Creek. Wind Dancer also has rabbit and turkey. Not sure about chickens - I need to research that. My problem is that I'm in Pleasant Hill, and most of the deliveries or sales at farmer's markets are in your area or S.F. So whatever I order, I have to drive out to pick up. 

Here are the web addresses:
