Buying In Bulk
Have you ever thought about buying a whole hog or a side of dry-aged beef? If you haven’t, you should! Buying meat in bulk has many advantages. The per pound price is cheaper, so you’ll get steaks or chops at the price of ground meat. You can have it cut to your specifications- like thick pork chops or bacon? Bone-in ribeye or tenderloin? When you buy meat in bulk, you get to make those choices. It also encourages you to eat a variety of meat cuts & expand your culinary prowess! How would you know how amazing a tri-tip roast can be if you never try it?
It doesn’t have to be difficult either. Willow City Farm has specialized cut sheets & will walk you through each step of selecting your cuts. We’ve done this for many families throughout the years, so we can help you figure out what works for you! We sell beef by the quarter, half or whole steer, & hogs by the half or whole. Lambs & goats can be purchased as ½ or whole as well! See this page for more information on buying steer, hog, or lamb in bulk, and don’t hesitate to call with any questions! It’s also a great thing to split between a few families or give as a gift.
New Products from Redbud Coffee Co. & The Clover Room
We have a few new vendors this week! Redbud Coffee Co. from New Berlin, IL is a new local roastery that sells fair-trade coffee, & gives to the Aruna Project with the purchase of each bag of coffee – ground or whole bean. The Clover Room has boutique jewelry & headbands - all of which make great gifts, too! Clarity Homestead and Trading Post has added more items, like dishwasher soaps & organic deodorant. Stop in and see what's new!
