I am writing to let you know about a local grass-fed beef farm named Grazing Days that is currently looking for new customers in Ottawa. I thought you would be interested in learning more about the farm and the beef they are making available.
Grazing Days (www.grazingdays.com) is a small grass-fed beef farm in Manotick Station that focuses on making quality local grass-fed beef available to households who don’t have a lot of freezer space, or who don’t eat a lot of meat and who have traditionally not been able to access
local grass-fed beef.
The farm is about building a new food system that supports our planet, our communities and our health. Properly managed animals are vital to the stewardship of agricultural lands and are therefore an important aspect of any food system. Eating and supporting local grass-fed beef improves your health, our environment, our community and our economy.
Grazing Days is selling CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) shares for the delivery of frozen grass-fed beef to addresses in Ottawa between October 2011 and June 2012. The beef will be delivered in small portions of 10 lbs or 20 lbs that are easily stored in the freezer above your fridge.
There are 4 different options to choose from:
Full Share – $740 (total of 80lbs – 10 lbs delivered once a month for 8 months),
Half Share – $370 (total of 40lbs – 4 deliveries of 10 lbs every other month – ie. October, December, February, April),
Bulk Share – $700 (total 80 lbs – 4 deliveries of 20 lbs every other month), and
Mixed Quarter Share – $670 (total 80 lbs – 1 delivery of 80 lbs).
For information about the different delivery options and what you can expect to find in a box and what it costs, check out Our CSA Box.
If you are interested in visiting the farm, there will be an open house at Grazing Days on Saturday, September 24th. See the cows, take part in a farm walking tour, come learn about our rotational grazing system, identify the changes we’ve made to the farm since last year… Anyone who is interested in visiting the farm and seeing how the cows are raised is welcome. Stay tuned to http://www.grazingdays.com for more details.
Finally, if you know of anyone who might be interested in get grass-fed beef from Grazing Days, please help spread the word about Grazing Days and forward them this email. I am still looking to find about 100 interested households before the end of September.
