Here is a letter I recently recieved. I think this is a great opportunity to buy some hyper-local, humanely raised meat! Please contact Shelmarie directly if you are interested, her information is at the bottom.
“I am a mother of two beautiful girls. We are lucky to be a part of a great local 4H group. My girls are fortunate to raise animals for an educational project every year. This year we have raised a calf, a lamb and 3 turkeys. They are all hand raised at home and cared for and loved by my girls and I right here in Orange county. My daughters are looking for buyers to buy their animals. My daughter Ivy has a market spring lamb and my daughter Chloe has two turkeys. We would like to spread the word and let those who can appreciate home grown meat be aware that we have them for sale. The lamb is ready for slaughter in a couple of weeks and the turkeys are ready for slaughter any time in the next month.
My daughters are willing to send you some info about their projects and answer any kind of questions you might have. I know this might be an unusual request but it could be awesome to sell the market animals to someone who really can appreciate the effort my girls have put into them.”
