Hi!  Our last winter market for the season is this Saturday from 9 am to 11 am.   We finally have our holiday sausage ready!   As always, please feel free to pre-order if you wish but we will also bring a variety.

Hi!  We now have grass fed beef available by the quarter or half.  We have 3/4 of 1 sold that is already at the processor and another ready if enough people are interested.

While Shawn concentrates on pigs, newly planted organic crops and meat sales, we have partnered with another local farmer for the lamb and beef.  We have visited many times & it is a very large farm with all out on pasture and the meat is good.  We want to continue to bring everyone the best product we can.

Please let us know as soon as possible if you are interested so we can coordinate everything.  It takes about a month from the time we take the beef in.  It will be $4.95 lb. hanging & the one in now is 170 lbs. per quarter hanging.   I would be happy to answer any questions as well.

Thank you!

  Hello!  Just letting everyone know we will be at our Northside, S. Fayette night market and Sewickley markets for 2 more weekends.  They will end the weekend before Thanksgiving.  Feel free to call or email if you would like a specific order put together.    

      We are planning to be at the Pittsburgh Public Market on the strip at its new location on Penn Ave. in the month of December (possibly longer but not sure) on Saturdays between 10 and 3, except the 3rd Saturday of the month.  On the 3rd Saturday of the month from Dec. through March we will be at the Sewickley market at the usual location in the church parking lot.  We are still trying to confirm the time, but will either be 9-11 am or 10-noon.

      Also, for anyone interested in a quarter beef we will be taking one in in the next couple of weeks.  We will have a gap pretty soon of none ready shortly after that.

      Thank you all for your business!
