April 2014 orders are open. From our newsletter:
Last chance for Easter Ham!
OK, they can be secular hams too, but the timing is right for an Easter feast!
Our bone-in alderwood-smoked hams are from our heritage Tamworth pigs who were raised on our Certified Organic pastures. The hams are around 4-6 lbs each. They need to be fully cooked, up to 145º, and will be lovely glazed or unglazed. Our special price for Easter is $11/lb. We only have about 10 left so email us to reserve yours now!
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to place an order. We’ll work directly with you to arrange hand-off. The hams are frozen and will need a couple of days to thaw, so get in touch soon!
We also have a few variety packs available for April. Our variety packs consist of ten pounds of pork in a variety of cuts. The contents vary every month. As an example, a recent ten-pound assortment included a roast, sausage, a couple of packs of chops, pork steak, bacon, and a tenderloin.
(Pint of ice cream for scale only! Our pork variety packs do not include ice cream, unfortunately.)
We’ve heard from some customers that some of the cuts have been fattier than they expected. These were not lean pigs! We think the fat is delicious to eat, but if that’s not your thing, this might not be the pork for you. Please get in touch if you have any questions about what to expect.
As usual, we also have some extra goodies that adventurous eaters can order — pork heart, liver, jowls, leaf lard, tongue, and smoked hocks; chicken liver, hearts, gizzards, and feet.
Coming up soon we’ll have ham steaks available in the variety packs, and possibly lamb by next month.
Consider yourselves invited to the farm anytime — there are lots of new babies to visit! Follow us at http://www.facebook.com/DropstoneFarms for pictures.
Thanks again! Feel free to get in touch anytime with questions, comments, or just to say hi.
