Pastured Pork / Grass Fed Beef

Hello Everyone:

We are doing some much needed down time for the rest of the month.  By down time I mean we will be revamping the website behind the scene and launching a new and improved shopping experience in August,hopefully with a drop location box.  We will not however not have any more drops this month.  We will still be taking orders for our August 12th Christiansen Farm drop.  We are negotiating with a Utah bee keeper for some of his highly sought after raw honey, we will keep you posted on that.  We have also been talking with an Alaska fisherman about bulk buying his catch.  This is truly wild caught salmon, halibut and crab.  The minimum order would be 10 lb. of a single item and the cost with shipping is around $25 per pound.  We would like to know how many of you would be interested in ordering this, email us at vegasfoodcoop@gmail.com and let us know.  As a co-op we would like to get back to the original thoughts that started the co-op 5 years ago, buy quality food at a reduced price when we group together and buy in bulk.  We would like to put out 2 post per month and include in them informative information for you, health and food related.  We would like to bring you the latest news regarding our food here in America.
