Meat Summer Fall More Details
TapRoot Meat share this year will consist of certified free range non gmo grain fed chickens, pastured non gmo grain fed pork and pastured non gmo grain fed beef.
In the past we have included rabbit, duck, and other meat from time to time. We have decided to focus on the three animals.
We will be sourcing meat from a few other farmers to ensure we have a variety throughout the year. In the past two years we have focused on only our animal products but do realize that variety is important to you so we will include meat from other free range/pastured non gmo feeding farmers.
The value is $25 per week for 24 weeks $ 600
