details, details...

there is a lot of interest in our winter meat csa promotion through "the point". unfortunately, "the point" does not allow me to upload files or ramble on and on about our products. so i'm going to attempt to answer some of the most pressing questions here.

one 10 lb share will feed two people about 18 meals. pick up is once a month. we are hoping to have a booth at the worthington winter farmer's market the 1st and 3rd saturday of each month. if you are unable to pick up there, or if we are not permitted to vend, then pick up will be at two of our shareholders homes--upper arlington and clintonville.

all meats are locally raised. 2silos raises the lamb, meat chickens, laying hens, goose and pigs. two amish farmer's provide us grass-fed, organically raised beef. rabbit, goat and turkey come from other small local farms. most animals are pasture raised--the pigs and rabbits are not. the pigs are raised in a traditional "pig pen" and the rabbits in hutches.

our $99 off promo is on half shares. if you want a full share at this price, we suggest signing up for two half shares and we will treat it as a full share at this end.

there is a 10 hour work requirement, which i did not make clear with "the point" promotion. this is very easily fulfilled at our farm in one day with a friend or at our market booth over the season.

meats are processed at local ODA or USDA inspected facilities. the bacon is organically cured. most meats are vacuum sealed.

since you are essentially purchasing live animals, you are entitled to whatever that animal produces. therefore, you will get "extras" with you shares such as organ meats, soup bones, dog bones, lard, etc.

if you send me an email, i am happy to send you a flier and faq.

thanks for your interest and support! i'm thrilled to see all the folks interested in knowing where their food comes from!

Crazy Day

Wow, it has been a busy day. Here it is, one of our "home work days", but yet, busy, busy, busy. This is good! It means we have gotten some things done. I am sure everyone has heard, I am helping Denise out while I am here. My name is Kerri, I'm the cousin from Florida. Man I am loving it here! I can't wait for the leaves to turn and the chill to come!

Denise was canning chicken again, I was making pasta, and oooohh, we will have some whole wheat pasta at the market on Saturday. Don't forget to stop by and check us out. We will also be adding new granola flavors to our already popular maple pecan flavor.
We also moved the sheep from one pen to another location on the farm. I have some great shots and took a video. If I get some time later, I will be putting it together and online.

Denise is out, moving chicken around and here I am updating the site. We will try to keep this fresh as often as we can. Sorry for the delay, it has been crazy around here, but here I am to help along. O, one more fun thing, we will be creating a newsletter with things going on to be sent to our regular customers.

I am working with Denise on a design for the website, and we will have one up shortly. Thank you all for your patience during its down time.
