March 8th Farm Pick-Up

Today is March 8th 2014 and C.S.A. Farm Pick-Up!

Come and see baby Daphne (baby goat kid), the new piglets and lambs!

Be sure to ask Jon Pieter Dow about
the amazing feed/pellet hopper he has engineered
and currently building from re-purposed & pre-used wood and donated materials. He has engineered this amazing structure to
withstand up-to 3-Tons of weight. 

Be sure to check out the hand made/woven net
Jon made, using re-purposed bale strings to help prevent the cats & birds of prey from getting to the young birds. He used square knots.

Jon Pieter Dow is a talented artist, brilliant author/novelist and if you have not yet received your copy of The Suldonon, you are missing out! This is book one of the Western Spheres...Trilogy. Available on Amazon and Lulu or order from your local book store. 

Drive Carefully and we will see you soon!

CSA Shipping Delay Feb.

C.S.A. Shipping Delay

                                      February 07, 2014

We have been experiencing technical difficulties with our UPS account and label printing abilities.
By Wednesday, Feb. 5th. we finally got some reprieve. Our UPS driver brought us some old fashioned labels and we  hand wrote many of the labels, and some were printed from the UPS guest section with success.

We have been working with UPS to resolve these issues without any further delay, and we have been assured that we will be able to continue processing our shipments, as usual by Monday, Feb. 10th.

We will resume shipping C.S.A. and wholesale 10-PK boxes on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (Feb 10th-12th) for February 2014. Please check your email for tracking numbers from UPS Quantum View.

We apologize for this delay and thank you for your patience and understanding.

From your farmers and ranchers at Rainbow Ranch Farms, Kelley Beef & Mary's Goat Farm.
