Spring Lake Farms is offering:
1) Beef or Beef/Chicken special request box
If you choose this - you get to custom create your grab box. Please let me know in your RSVP what cuts you want. You can request cuts of steak, special roasts, chickens, etc. Make as many or as few requests as you want. If your requests are less than $150, than Temma will fill up your box with cuts and ground beef to get you up to your total. This is a great opportunity to get a sweet brisket or some porterhouse for some winter grilling!! If you make a request that the farmers can't fulfill exactly, they will make their best substitution.
2) ALL GRASS FED BEEF OR Chicken/Beef SAMPLER GRAB BOX
Spring Lake Farms is offering an all beef sampler pack. This pack will consist of 25+ pounds of various beef cuts from various cows and steers and maybe some bull. These animals were butchered at various times throughout the year and the date is labelled on each cut. This will give you the opportunity to taste the difference between the fine spring and summer grass vs. the harsher fall grass vs. hay. Your cuts will be a blend of ground, stew, roasts and steaks. Organs and bones will not be a part of your 25 pounds of meat. Some may be included in addition to your 25 pounds. I do not know exactly how many of each cut , but I can assure you that Spring Lake Farms is always extremely generous in their sampler packs. They aim to please their discerning meat eating customers. If you do want chickens, please request when you RSVP.
This is Temma's description of the boxes, "
The all beef boxes will be similar to the boxes last time
about 17 lbs of ground beef from several different beef,(for a variety of taste each one marked)
and about 10 lbs of mixed beef cuts ,whatever we have steaks, roasts, shanks ,etc."

WE HAVE A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE POLICY FOR GRAB BOXES - PEOPLE GET TO PICK THEIR BOXES IN THE ORDER IN WHICH THEY GET HERE.

Spring Lake has 2 great websites www.springlakeny.com and healthymeat.org. Ulla Kjarval, the farmer's daughter also writes a farming & food blog with several recipes to complement the meat her parent's raise. Our beef has been completely grass-fed. Ingi Kjarval, our farmer, has been cross-breeding his cattle to help build a smaller, sturdier steer that does well in upstate NY on grass. Our cows are part Simmental, Hereford, Angus & Highland.
