We are a Small Family Farm located in the Inland Northwest near Spokane, Washington.
We practice sustainable and organic farming methods.
Please read the CSA General Information and Instructions page for a background to fully understand our CSA Programs.
The CSA Farmer acts as the Club Leader. You'll actually be pre-ordering and purchasing a portion of a live beef, hog and lamb along with poultry owned by Rocky Ridge Ranch at the farm. In addition your Membership cost pays for: arranging the slaughter and processing, picking up the packaged fresh frozen meat, sorting out your portions and storing it in bulk for you at a freezer at the farm. Then each week part of your portion of the packaged meat is selected and packed in a cooler for delivery to you.
The Meat is all "Flash Frozen" when processed into packaged, cut and double wrapped portions for freezer storage. This is what it means when meat is called "Fresh Frozen". The Beef is aged for improved tenderness and selected meats are seasoned and cured before packaging. This meat will store for periods much longer and safer than meat brought home from a grocery store and frozen in a home freezer. At the farm we store the Meat in a commercial Walk-In Freezer, licensed and inspected as an "On Farm Food Storage Facility".
A weekly delivery of one Share in a cooler will contain 10-15 pounds of meat items. (see below) Half Shares are available for alternating weekly deliveries. Each delivery the previous empty cooler is traded for the next one. So packaged meat is kept frozen and clean. It may take a few weeks to collect enough cuts of the same type for larger family gatherings. Extra USDA processed retail cuts of meat can be Special Ordered for special occasions. As a CSA Member in this program the order will be discounted 10% or more. You'll receive a Special Holiday Meat item at the end of the season just before Thanksgiving such as a Turkey, Goose or large Ham. If you must miss a delivery PLEASE notify us in advance and we'll save the delivery for you until other arrangements can be made.
Basic cost is a once a season non-refundable Membership Fee of $100. The weekly Deliveries for Variety Meats will be $100/week. Advance Pay Members are discounted. For more information please take a look at the "Membership Agreement Form"
