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,

Hi Friends,

We hope everyone is healthy and doing well in these unique times.  We have been busy around the farm.  We planted a field of hay last week and are gearing up for a good deal more planting ahead.  The cows and sheep are out on pasture and are thriving.  We have had a few calves and lambs, and things have been moving along.  

We are planning a meat sale drive through pick-up this Sunday from 3-4.  If you haven't tried this new format, we have been very pleased with it, and we hope you can give it a try.  It has almost eliminated wait times and has been very smooth. 

Here's how it works, we have created a link below, which you can click on to view the availability and price list.  You can either fill it out and email it back, or just email us the items you would like.  We will package the items Saturday evening and send you an email by Sunday mid-morning with the total.  When you arrive at the farm on Sunday between 3-4, we will have a car line.  When you get to the barn, let us know what name the order will be under and we will put the box in your car.  If you have a check made out already, we will take it at that time, or process your credit card or make change from cash.  If you can have exact change or a check, that is preferred.  You stay in your car the whole time. It keeps everyone safe and things moving.

Right now our inventory is still a little limited.  We haven't gotten cattle back from the butcher since things got a little crazy, but we are hoping to have everything back and ready to sell next weekend with a wider variety of cuts.  Right now we have a lot of slow cooking items which are great to cook in a Crock Pot or oven on low for the day.  If you haven't tried some items in the past, maybe now is a great time to stretch your culinary wings.

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns and we will be happy to help.  We hope to see you Sunday.

Hi All, We have had MANY additional requests for meat since our sale this past weekend. Attached is our price list for our next meat sale. We will package orders in the order that we receive them and will contact you with the total and the pick-up time as soon as possible. Drew is currently working full-time and I (Ashley) am homeschooling the girls and teaching my Miami classes remotely. We promise to get your orders to you as quickly as possible, but it will likely be this weekend that we are able to coordinate curb-side pick-up on our farm. We sold a LOT of hamburger last weekend and will likely run out of one pound burger packages with the first orders. If you would like hamburger, please indicate on your order if you would like 5 pound burger packages as a back-up.
Please send your order to our email at drew@reserverunfarm.com or to our Reserve Run Facebook Messenger.
Thank you for your support!
