If you wanted to order and haven’t please do so, I have to give the total numbers ordered to both farms on Monday, August 18th. As a reminder, their wonderful organic peaches are 10# for $20 & the organic watermelon are $6 ea! I bought 20# of peaches, thinking I would can them, but they were so sweet and juicy I’ve already made 2 peach cobblers with them. I’m so thankful they are still available because I need to buy more for canning this time. We hope you are enjoying all the fresh produce as much as we are.
We still have a couple of Pastured Grass Fed Lambs available to order. They are going fast, so if you want one order by Sept 10th, when they are gone they are gone until next fall! They will be going to the butchers on Sept. 20th and dropping at Cragin park on Oct. 4th.

Kerr farms is offering us organically grown watermelon. These are large juicy watermelon. My household grew by 10 people a few weeks ago as both my grown children and their families came home for a visit. We were blessed to have one of these watermelon and it was fabulous. We had sliced crisp, cool watermelon and there was so much we also made watermelon juice with fresh mint, talk about refreshing! These will both be available at the August 21thst drops. We will be at 3920 W.

10 pounds bag for $20
That is only $2 per pound! Put you order in by using the “order” tab at the top of the home page. Please let us know how may bags you want and which drop location you prefer. We will have them at 3920 W. Charleston Blvd between 11-11:30 and at 7540 Dean Martin between 12-12:30 on August 7th.

You will see the $1 charge at a shipping/handling fee on your invoice.
More Bacon! Christiansen has made more bacon available to us and there is no maximum orders now! There is how ever a higher price for the bacon. He was literally selling his bacon to us below cost to himself, because the bacon is so popular with us he is going to buy back pork bellies from his commercial clients and have it cured and processed for us but he can not do this at a loss. The new price for this pastured pork bacon is $7.50 per pound. Still less than you would pay in WF!
Our next Bar10Beef drop will be on August 7th. We will have Pastured eggs, natural locally made salsa and local organically grown Alberta peaches as well as the Bar10Beef.
We have been making some much needed changes to the website during our short break. You can now pay with credit cards and debit cards without incurring a fee. The co-op has grown from the original 30 friends to over a 1000! It’s very exciting to see how many there are of us here in the Las Vegas Valley who have a passion for healthy eating. With this growth comes the challenge of taking and responding to all the orders in a timely manner. Therefore we have added a shopping cart and payment options to the site.
We will no longer use the “order” tab for grass fed beef, pastured pork, pastured chicken eggs and Salsa Rox. There are drop down menus on each of these pages to add to your shopping cart and check out with your payment. You may still use the “order” tab when making a COD order for eggs & Salsa Rox only. The check out page will take you to Paypal site for payment, but you don’t need to have a paypal account to make payment.
There is a special instructions window, we ask that you put your phone number and the drop location of your choice in this window. You can of coarse use this window for any special instructions you have for us as well. We will still use the “order” tab for bulk buys like Green Pastures, produce, honey and various other items we may offer. We will always give instructions for items that require the “order” tab to be used.
We are accepting Christiansen Farms orders for the August 15th drop at this time. We will also have 2 drop locations for this drop just like we do for the grass fed beef.
The next Bar10Beef drop is Thursday, July 3rd. We are still accepting orders for this drop through July 29th. We are taking orders for pastured eggs and Salsa Rox and the organically grown cherries from Kerr Farms for this drop as well.
