Our share price reflects the real cost of raising animals on a diversified small-scale, with daily care and fed certified organic rations. The cheap prices found at the super grocers do not reflect the externalities (environmental, human health and animal welfare) in raising livestock on a large scale and pumping them full of waste feed concentrates and antibiotics. In order for small farms to return to our hillsides, we must decide that we are willing to pay, entirely, for what we eat. Our animals are grazed together cows, sheep and poultry and moved to new grass everyday. Our poultry and pigs receive Green Mountain Feeds grain rations daily. You bet it costs more.
While we always welcome members to pick-up their monthly share here on the farm, we recognize that it's easier for folks to participate when there is a distribution point where their daily lives unfold. Therefore, we've forged partnerships with various distribution sites in our larger community. Shares are available for pick-up at the following locations:
