We’ve got great news; this summer we have arranged for egg, chicken, and beef shares.
Egg share is offered through a partnership with Diane Gambel of The Seedless Gardener. Diane has a flock of pastured laying hens, who lay delicious eggs with dark yolks and firm whites.

If you’ve never had a farm fresh egg, you’re missing out, and if you have, then you know what I’m talking about. We’ve arranged for a limited number of egg shares, which will include one dozen eggs each week. The cost is 3.75/week, for a total over 26 weeks of 97.50.
Beef share is genuine grass finished Highland Beef, which is known for it’s flavor, lean nature, extra high protein, and low cholesterol (actually lower than chicken in tests). These cattle are raised entirely on forage, and are free of pesticides, growth hormones, and antibiotics. Emmanuel and Lydia Schwartz, an Amish couple from Eldorado Springs, raise these great cattle, and are offering up to 5 shares of beef this summer. The beef share will include 5 distributions this summer; June 25th, July 30, August 27th, September 24th, and October 29th.
In June and September you will receive:
2 ribeye steaks
2 boneless sirloin steaks
1 pikes peak roast
10 lbs of roast beef
In July and October you will receive:
2 top sirloin steak
1 arm roast
4 lbs of stew meat
10 lbs of ground beef
In August you will receive:
1 chuck roast
10 lbs ground beef
6 lbs of beef patties
All together over 100lbs of top quality beef, total price is $600
Chicken share will be chickens raised on our farm, on pasture, fed non-GMO grains. These chickens are better flavored, better textured, and better for you than grocery store chickens.

The chickens will be whole, shrink wrapped, and frozen. Chickens will be distributed on the last Tuesday of the month, starting in May. Each month you will receive four chickens, for an average of 20 lbs of chicken per month. Cost per month is $75, or $450 for the season. This is a .25/lb discount from our regular price, and is also the only way to guarantee that you get chickens from us. We will have a limited number for sale at the farmstand, but when they are gone, that’s all there will be, so only chicken share members will be guaranteed a supply of chicken all summer long.
