Terms and Conditions


Meatshare is for ordering in bulk to save money. Most of our ordering models do not allow for you to pick the cuts you get and are over 10 lbs per order. If you prefer smaller orders or want only specific cuts, it might not be the best options for you. However, you are welcome to use our message boards to find other members to split shares with.


You must be able to receive emails from the organizers. When we look at your application we will send you an email and approve you when you reply to it. You will also need to provide a phone number when RSVP'ing.


Your deposit commits you to order meat from our farmers and pick it up on the indicated day. If you cancel, it makes business difficult for us and the farmer, which is why the deposit is so large. When you pick up your order, we refund you the amount of deposit - actual cost of order. If you cancel a week in advance we will offer a full refund, but otherwise, we cannot offer any refunds for any reasons and your deposit will go to a local charity that helps local ag, currently the Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund. If the order has to be cancelled because the supply is not available, you will receive a full refund.


We close RSVPs for events and orders after a certain time period in order for us to be able to know who is coming and plan effectively. If RSVPs for an event you want to attend are closed, we do not offer exceptions.


We offer discounts to people who host a drop-off point or help organize events. Contact Melissa to get involved.
