We have a small window to order raw honey from Christiansen Farm in Utah. The bee hives are located on Christiansen Farm in northern Utah located acres from the nearest farm using any form of pesticides or herbicides. What does this mean for the bees? They produce three times more honey than the hives located near farms that use pesticides or herbicides. That equates to happy bees! Happy Bees, Happy Honey! Utah has the similar topography and vegetation as we do here in the Las Vegas Valley. This honey has nutritional properties useful to us here in fighting against allergies to local pollen.We are accepting orders for this honey now through October 7, 2014 only. This honey will come in 1 pound tubs. 3 tubs for $21 or 6 tubs for $40 The honey will drop on October 10th between 5-5:30pm at Cragin park in Las Vegas and between 6-6:30pm at 7540 Dean Martin
To order: Click the “Order” tab above and fill in the yellow order form with all the information including how many honey you would like and the drop location you prefer. We will email you back a confirmation and payment instructions.
We are now accepting order for the next Christiansen Farm’s drop! The Fall is the perfect time to think pulled pork done in the crock pot or a pork roast slowly roasting in the oven with baby yukon gold potatoes, yum! I think I have always equated Fall with pork and pumpkin. Those of you who have purchased pork from Christiansen Farm know how wonderful their 100% pastured burkshire pork is. Their 100% grass fed beef is extremely good as well.
To order: click on the “Christiansen Farms” tab at the top and scroll down to the bottom, where you’ll find the drop down menu box. Select what you want to order, place it in your shopping cart and check out completely until you receive a confirmation.
We will be accepting orders now until October 5th. However all orders for whole and half pigs, along with whole, half and quarter beef order will have to be to us by October 1st, so that the butcher will have processing preferences in time. We will be dropping at Cragin park in Las Vegas between 5-5:30pm and at 7540 Dean Martin between 6-6:30pm on October 10th. **Please indicate which drop location you prefer under the special instruction on the check out form.
I think I will take a hint for my son here, he always ate whatever he didn’t like on his plate first so that it would be gone. Well the rain did quite a bit of damage to the roads between Utah and the Vegas valley here. So much so that Ryan call me this morning to let me know he would not be down with our order this Thursday. As a matter of fact the Beef drop scheduled for September 11th will be postponed until September 25th. In addition Kerr Farms suffered quite a bit of flooding as well. They will be able to pick our orders in time to bring them down for the September 25th drop also.
