Wow!! Bad news for the consumer!!
It is getting increasingly more important to find a source of farm raised meat. Congress has voted to end the labeling of “country of origin” on almost all meat and poultry. This can’t be a good thing for those that are wanting meat raised in a healthy way.
Also, with the government wanting to pass another trade deal to be able to make it easier to trade with Asian countries, that means Chinese meat will now be pushed into our markets without being labeled. Forget all of the warnings about meat and fish raised in China, it will no longer matter because you will not know where it is from.
-Profits over Health-
-Big business over the individual-
Congress once again shows who it really represents. This country is going down the crapper!!
Bypass the attempt to push foreign sub-prime meat onto your plate, buy your meat locally. You know where it was raised, how it was treated, and who processed it. Plus it hasn’t traveled across the earth to get to your table.
There is a way to get great farm raised meat without having to buy the whole hog at once. Our CSA ( Community Supported Agriculture) program offers a share of 15 lbs. of meat each month. Plus, Discounts off of our retail prices are given for pre-payments of 3 months, 6 months, and 12 months shares.
We put our CSA customers first. Their orders are filled first. Plus we try include bonus products that we produce here on the farm when we can.
We will be implementing new CSA pricing options in the fall. The new options will include a Premium share of Ossabaw Island pork, or a Standard share of pork from one of our other fine breeds. Our current Members will continue to enjoy Ossabaw Island and Ossabaw Island cross pork for the duration of their share purchase. So if you buy in before our new options are implemented, you will be grandfathered into our Premium share.
Our Egg CSA is will be starting up soon. The hens are ramping up to supply us with great farm-fresh brown eggs. Get signed up now! Orders will be limited starting out this Spring.
