As a Farm Share Member, you must fully understand and be comfortable with the fact that farming is an imperfect science: there will be failures due to weather challenges, pest invasions, and bouts with disease. You must anticipate that you will receive a variety of meats, but you may not get every cut that is on our list due to failures or low yields. You will pick up your Farm Share on your designated pickup day, on time, or send someone else to pick up your share for you. All farm shares not picked up on your share pick-up day (or arrangements made) become the property of Amy's Meats to do with as we see fit. There are no refunds or repeats for missed shares. Shareholders may pick up their shares individually or coordinate with another shareholder to pick up and deliver their share. Shareholders that are unable to pick up their share may send a friend, family member, or neighbor to pick up their share for them.
How we grow our food
We fertilize with organically-rich compost made with manure from our pastured animals. We are not “certified organic” simply because I personally don’t agree with how the Federal Government has hijacked the use of the word “organic.” It has become a bureaucratic mess for a small farm to be able to use the word “organic” for marketing purposes and it's an unnecessary expense that we just can’t justify. All of our animals are raised naturally without added hormones. On pasture paddocks with rotational grazing. We do offer free choice grains as a supplement.
If for any reason we are unable to fulfill our obligation to produce your shares, we will refund you on a pro-rated basis for any unfulfilled share weeks. This does not include crop failures or natural disasters. We reserve the right to swap portions of meat, eggs, flour, veggies, or baked goods should any one of those fall short in production so long as the overall dollar value is replaced.
