Falling into Winter

by Elizabeth Frary October 17, 2018

 

Having been in business now for 7 years, we have ebbed and flowed through many seasons and cycles both on the farm and as a family. During that time our Share Members have become invaluable in their understanding of our farm model and the ethics we adhere to. They have come to understand not only our seasonal cycles but their part in those cycles as well.

We have written and spoken many times about the importance of local, humanly raised meat. We use the phrase “Know your Farmer” as a way to express the importance of understanding where your food comes from, who it comes from, and to acknowledge the importance of the community that supports us here at Copicut Farms

As a pasture raised farm, Thanksgiving turkeys are the natural and most obvious culmination to our farming season. But for us the distribution of our Fall Bulk Shares are equally important. It gives us peace of mind that families who have come to rely on us for healthy, sustainable meat will have continued access all winter.

Over the course of the last 7 years our Members have come to feel this way as well. While we offer a reduced home delivery schedule and continue to attend two farmers markets throughout the winter, the best and most cost-efficient way to guarantee that you have access to local, healthy meat is to participate in our Fall Bulk Share.

We have many Fall Bulk Share Members who have participated for several seasons now, some since our first year. We are honored to have become part of their lives year-round, and appreciate their commitment to our farm and family.

 

I have purchased a bulk meat share for several years. Although I always hold my breath on pick-up day, slightly worried that I won’t have room in my already stocked freezer for the meat, each time I take a frozen chicken from the freezer, I am reminded how lucky I am to have access to meat raised with such care and integrity. The taste is superior to any chicken I can buy in the supermarket, the meat has higher levels of some important nutrients, the animals were humanely raised and the environmental footprint is much smaller than conventionally raised meat. Plus, it’s just so convenient to know I have a supply of high-quality meat to carry me through until the next farmers market season.

I love participating in the winter farm share for many of the same reasons I participate in the summer farm share. I want to know where my food comes from, and I want the convenience of always having chicken or pork on hand, so having a freezer stocked with chicken from Copicut makes that possible. It is also the best chicken… anything I may buy from the supermarket when my winter supply runs out, does not compare in terms of quality or taste.  I also want to support farmers and small businesses and this is a great way to do so!
