Are there membership fees?

We charge a 7% distribution fee on orders rather than a membership fee. This helps to cover costs of operating the market, such as gas for deliveries, supplies, software fees, employee etc.

How does pre-order for freezer meats work?

You can make a deposit by placing an order for the meat on line. That will reserve the animal for you. The farmer receiving the sales notification/deposit will contact you and make the arrangements on the meat. The farmer takes the animal in to the processor and the customer goes to the processor to get the meat. The meat will not be delivered with the normal distribution system. Much of how that works depends on the type of animal being processed.

When deciding rather to or not order freezer meats consider the following.
Do you have a manual defrosting freezer? Meat will keep longer in manual defrosting freezer as opposed to self defrosting freezers.
Do you have enough room in your freezer?
A cubic foot will hold about 30 pounds of meat depending on the cuts. To help visualize a cubic foot consider that a milk crate is slightly smaller than a cubic foot.
