Regional Seasonal is a group of small farms that formed an alliance in September of 2015 in order to provide their quality, sustainable, and humanely raised meat in USDA approved packages. What’s that mean? Farming for years, these folks have been selling their meat by the share. Meaning a customer had to buy a whole, half or quarter of a pig, cow, etc. This limits sales to residents who have the freezer space and the money to purchase their meat in bulk. The USDA option allows the farms to process their meat under USDA supervision and sell individual “cuts” to their customers and opens the doors to retail grocery stores. Of course, they prefer to work with retail outlets who understand the importance of local, sustainable meat, such as our very own Front Porch Pickings, or independently owned markets like Native Sun and Grass Roots in Jacksonville.
With that said, we are excited to start offering pork and beef when it is available. This week we will have a limited supply of ground pork, ground sausage, and pork chops in our store. Get it while the gettin’s good! And for more about their farms and products please visit the flyer or their website at http://regionalseasonal.com.
