Hi Friends,

We hope this finds you well.  This break in the weather melted the snow, so we can finally host a meat sale.  We weren't sure if we would be able to get one in for February, but we will be able to sneak it in on the last day of the month.  The link to the price page is at the bottom.

We are going to extend the pick up time by a half hour so that it will cut down on the amount of cars that may have to pass each other on our long driveway.  There is always a slight chance of getting stuck this time of year if you get in the grass.  Normally pick up is from 3-4, but this Sunday it will be 3-4:30 at our farm.  The address is 2850 Lanes Mill Rd. Oxford, OH. 45056

We ask to have your orders emailed to us by noon on Saturday the 27th, so that we can package orders Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.  We will email you the total before the sale on Sunday. We accept cash, check, Venmo and credit card.  Pick up will be drive-through style.  You won't need to get out of your car.  Please let us know if you have any questions or special requests.

Hi Friends,

I hope the new year has found you well.  Things are going well around the farm.  The cows are fat and happy, hanging out and eating well until calving season starts in March.  The sheep should start lambing next month and into March, so it will start to get exciting soon.

We will be hosting our first meat sale of 2021 this upcoming weekend.  Orders can be placed via email until noon on Saturday.  We will package your orders Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.  We should have your totals emailed back to you by noon on Sunday and pick-up will be at our farm on Lanes Mill Rd. Sunday from 3-4.  We will continue the contactless pick-up line, so you won't even need to get out of your car.  When you come down the driveway, turn left towards the barns and follow the loop in a clockwise direction.  We are happy to announce that we have added Venmo as a payment method as well as cash, check and credit card.

To start the new year off right, we are going to have a sale on some slow cooking seasonal favorites.  Our beef shanks (labeled as soup bones)and short ribs will both be on sale for $3.75/lb.  We are also running a special on Rolled Rump Roasts, now priced at $6.00/lb.  It's a great way to stock your freezer for some comfort food on these cold nights.

If you have a larger group to feed, we have a couple of larger cuts that may interest you.  We have some whole strip loins available and also whole sirloins available as well.  The strip loins can be cut down into steaks or could be used as a top-sirloin roast.  They are around 10-12# for each loin.  The whole sirloin is around 13-15#.  It can be trimmed into steaks, or used as a roast as well.  The strip loins are priced at $10.50/lb. and the whole sirloin is priced at $5/lb.  We also offer wholesale pricing on 50# boxes of hamburger, hamburger patties, bratwursts and stew meat.  If you have any questions about any of those options please let us know.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday.  If you have any special requests, or have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

Hi Friends,

We hope this finds you well.  It has been a while since we have been able to host a sale.  We finally wrapped up our fall harvest last week and finished planting our wheat and cereal rye for next spring.  We are getting things put away for the winter and starting to prepare for the cold weather.  Hopefully with the bulk of our work behind us for the year, we can host sales a little more frequently.

We will be hosting a meat sale pick-up at our farm this upcoming Sunday, the 15th from 3-4 P.M.  The link to our inventory sheet will be at the bottom of this email.  We have a good mix of items in the beef and chicken category.  We will have more pork to offer next month.  We have a couple of items available to sell that I thought I would mention, but didn't put onto the inventory page.  They are large cuts, but with the holiday season moving in, they may fit into someone's plans.  I have four whole strip loins available.  They could be cut into steaks or utilized as a roast.  They are in the ballpark of 10# each and are priced at $10.50/lb.   I also have whole sirloin cuts available as well.  These are the entire sirloin section cut and vacuum sealed.  They are bone-in and untrimmed.  They are in the 15-20# ballpark and are priced at $5.00/lb.  

If you are looking for local pasture raised turkeys this season, we have a recommendation.  We haven't added pasture raised turkeys to our farm yet, but a friend of mine does a great job with them.  Dave Stinson has some smaller birds in the 10-14# range ready now, and will have 18-30# turkeys ready the weekend before Thanksgiving.  They are priced at $2.69/lb.  If you are interested, please give Dave a call at 513-200-0934.  Dave is located near Seven Mile.

We have had some spots open up for freezer beef in the near future as well.  If you are looking to stock you freezer for the winter or spring time please let us know.

The meat sale on Sunday will be a drive through style as we have done in the past.  We ask to have your orders emailed back to us by noon on Saturday so that we have time to package them Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning before the sale.  If you would like hamburger or stew meat in 50# quantities, we can accommodate that and we offer a wholesale discount on those as well.  Please let us know if you have any questions.  We look forward to seeing you soon.

Hi Friends,

I hope this finds you well.  We are in full swing around the farm.  We finished filling our silos with chopped corn to make silage and will be starting to harvest soybeans and corn with our combine within the next week.  Since we have a little bit of time between the harvests, we decided to have a meat sale this upcoming Sunday, October fourth.

We took our last group of chickens for the year to the butcher a couple of weeks ago.  We have a good supply of chicken at the moment, but if you want to stock up for the winter, now is the best time to order so that you have a full selection.  We also just brought back cattle from the butcher, so we have a good selection to choose from as well.  We had run out of steaks, chuck roasts and cubed steaks at the last sale, but we are all stocked up for this month.

Speaking of stocking up, if anyone is in the market for larger quantities of hamburger, hamburger patties, stew meat, or chicken leg and thigh quarters, please let us know.  We do offer discounts for whole case quantities.  Most of the beef cuts are 50# to a case.  A case of leg and thigh quarters are usually in the 20-30# range.  We also have openings for freezer beef for most months in 2021.  Feel free to email me at Drew@reserverunfarm.com to discuss any of the details with the bulk items.

We will be hosting the meat sale this weekend at our farm on Lanes Mill Rd. from 3-4 p.m. on Sunday.  We will do a drive-through style so you can stay in your vehicle and we will bring everything to your car.  We need all orders emailed to us by Saturday at noon.  We will start filling orders Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning.  We try to have your totals emailed back to you by noon on Sunday.  Orders are processed first ordered, first filled.  We do run out of some items that are in short supply, such as steaks.  If that happens we will let you know if we ran out of something on your order when we send your total back to you.  If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask.  We hope to see you Sunday.

Hi Friends,

I hope this finds everyone well.  Back to school time is here.  It won't be long until the leaves change and autumn will be upon us.  We have been busy around the farm trying to wrap up summer work and gearing up for fall harvest.  We are almost done with our hay for the year and it won't be long until we start chopping corn silage to fill the silos.

We will be hosting a meat sale this weekend at the farm.  Pick-up will be Sunday from 3-4.  We will be doing a pick-up loop in front of the barn.  The barn is full of hay, so we can't drive through the barn at the moment.  We ask for you to pull up to the pop-up tent outside of the barn and we will load your order in your car for you.

There will be a link to the inventory sheet at the bottom of this message.  Please check it out and email us your order.  We ask to have all orders emailed to us by 10:00 A.M. on Saturday morning.  We will fill orders as first received, first filled.  We may run out of some items.  As you will see on the sheet, we are running low on pork products.  Our next pigs go to the butcher in October.  We do have a good supply of beef and chicken at the moment.  Whole chickens will be on the smaller side, between 2.5-4# right now.  If you have a preference between smaller or larger please let us know and we will do our best to make that happen.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

Hi Friends,

I hope this finds everyone well.  Things lined up this week for us to offer a full selection of beef and chicken this weekend.  We had chickens processed this week and will be picking our beef up from the butcher tomorrow, which is being cut and processed today. We have two new items to let you know about for this week, sweet Italian chicken sausage links and all beef bratwurst links. 

We will be hosting a pick-up event this Sunday, the 26th, from 3-4 in the afternoon at our farm on Lanes Mill Rd.  We will have a limited number of steaks to offer, so there is a chance we will run out of certain cuts.  Feel free to include a backup order of a second steak if you would like a little insurance.  We will package orders on a first received, first filled basis.  Orders will be accepted until noon on Saturday.  We will collect all of the orders at that time and begin to fill boxes Saturday evening and Sunday morning.  We will email you the total for your items around noon on Sunday and if we ran out of any items, we will let you know at that time.

Pick up will be done from 3-4 on Sunday in a drive-through line.  You can stay in your car and we will put your meat in your vehicle while you hand Ashley a check, exact change or a credit card.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.  We look forward to seeing you Sunday!

Hi Friends,

We hope this finds everyone well.  This week is slipping away quickly, so sending this letter out is overdue.  We will be hosting a meat sale pick up this Sunday from 3-4.  It is the last opportunity you will have to buy directly from our farm before the July 4th holiday arrives.  The link to our price sheet will be at the bottom of this email.

We had our second group of chickens of the year processed this past week.  These birds are a little smaller than usual, so whole birds will be in the 3-4# range instead of the more normal 4-5# chickens.  However, it does make the boneless skinless breasts a more regular sized portion, which is a nice silver lining.  We got our first batch of chicken chorizo back from the butcher as well, so we are very happy to have that back in our inventory.

If you are new to the pre-order, here is a quick breakdown of how we handle orders.  We post items to our inventory sheet that we feel are in good enough supply to offer.  We only sell meat from animals that we raise on our farm, so we will run out of some items each sale.  This week, steaks are in somewhat short supply, but we feel like we have enough of certain cuts to offer.  Orders are processed Saturday evenings and Sunday morning.  We will email you sometime around Saturday afternoon/evening to let you know we received your order.  You will receive a follow up email Sunday before the sale with your total, and if we had any items that were out of stock in your order.  With your total, we ask that you have a check made out in advance, or have exact change if possible.  We will have a credit card reader available if needed during the sale. 

If you have a specific item in mind that isn't on the inventory sheet, please don't hesitate to ask if we have it.  Occasionally we will have a few items of a certain cut that aren't enough to advertise, but we may still have them.  If we have the item, it isn't a problem to add it to your order.  Also, if you are looking for larger quantities of certain items, such as hamburgers or hamburger patties, we do offer them in wholesale sizes (usually 50# boxes) with a wholesale discount. 

We appreciate everyone's patience with our low tech system.  We are working on an easier approach, but we aren't there yet.  We thank everyone for your continued support of our farm and if we don't see you Sunday, we hope you have a safe and fun 4th.

Hi Friends,

I hope this finds everyone well.  It has been a whirlwind since the last sale.  We finally got enough cooperation from Mother Nature to get our corn and soybeans planted and about 70% of our first cutting of hay complete.  With the outlook over the next few days looking pleasant, we are hoping to have hay completed by Sunday.

Our first group of pasture raised chickens were processed this week and we have them available on the price list for this Sunday's pick-up.  This was a smaller group than usual, in regards to amount of chickens raised.  They are larger than usual in size because we couldn't get them in to the butcher in their normal time frame.  Most of the whole chickens are in the 6-7# range, instead of the usual 4-5# chicken.  Our next group of chickens will be ready in two weeks, so if we run out this weekend, it won't take long until we are back in stock. 

We will be hosting a drive-through sale this Sunday from 3-4.  I have provided a link below which has the availability for this weeks sale.  We will be accepting orders until noon on Saturday.  We will go through the orders Saturday afternoon and package them Saturday evening and Sunday morning.  We will email you back Sunday by noon with your total and if we had any items that we were sold out of.  Orders are filled on a first received, first filled basis.  We will be busy making hay this week, so if you don't hear from us please don't be alarmed.

We are running a special this week on beef shanks.  They were $5.75/lb. and this week we reduced the price to $5.00/lb. They are a great option for slow cooking, and the bone in the center of the cut helps to make a great stock for the meal.  We hope you get a moment to enjoy this great weather and we look forward to seeing you Sunday.

Hi Friends,

I hope this finds everyone safe and healthy.  We have been busy around the farm and in the fields the past couple of weeks.  We have about 75% of our corn planted, and the hay we planted back in April is looking very good.  Hopefully we can get a few more dry days to finish our corn and soybean planting and move on to our first cutting of hay.

We had another group of cattle processed last week.  I will be picking them up this week and they are now available for pre-order.  The price page link is at the bottom of this email.  We will be hosting another drive-through style meat pick up this Sunday, the 24th.  We will have a fresh supply of hamburger patties, 1# hamburger, roasts and steaks. 

We may run out of some of the items, so all of the orders are filled on a first ordered, first fulfilled method.  We are accepting orders until 9 AM Saturday.  We will start packaging orders at that time.  We will total everything up and send you an email with your total, and if we ran out of anything, we will let you know in that email.  We will have those emails out to you Sunday by noon.

We have been getting requests for our pasture raised chickens.  Our first group is growing and doing well.  We couldn't get our normal processing date for this group, which would have made them about eight weeks old and around 4-5#.  The first date we could get for this group at the butcher will make them 10 weeks old.  We are expecting them to dress out around 7-8# and should make a very nice roasting chicken.  They will be going to the butcher on June 8th. We will be posting a pre-order for these birds soon.  We also have a group going to the butcher on June 22nd.  They will be our normal size, so things will be on schedule from that group through the end of the season.

Here is a link to the availability/price page for the Sunday pick-up sale: https://s3.amazonaws.com/sfc-dynamic-content/uploadfiles/1182/Price_List_5-24_Pick-Up.pdf

Have a great week, and we look forward to seeing you Sunday!

Hi Friends,

I hope this finds everyone healthy and safe.  We have been busy around the farm this past week.  We got 20 acres of hay planted in between rains, which puts us at 40 acres of new hay for this upcoming season.  We picked up our beef from the butcher and dropped off a couple of lambs as well.  All of those items will be available for the upcoming sale.

Our plan was to have a sale this Sunday, but with the brief amount of time to plant our hay, we focused our time on that.  We will be hosting our next drive through sale on Sunday May 3rd from 3-4 pm.  We have replenished our supply of steaks, roasts and hamburger for the time being.  Orders will be filled first ordered, first fulfilled, so there is the possibility that we may sell out of some of our most popular steaks.

Here is the link to our most up to date price list: https://s3.amazonaws.com/sfc-dynamic-content/uploadfiles/1182/Price_List_5-3_Pick-Up.pdf

Please email us your requests and we will do our best to make it happen.  We hope to see you on May 3rd.

 

All the best,

Drew and Ashley Johnson
