Smoked Meaty Ribs
Someone who had pre-ordered meat in the Kickstarter project asked about the time frame for shipping meat as he was concerned that he was going to be away on vacation and didn’t want it to arrive while he was gone.
Rest assured we’ll make sure that doesn’t happen. We just closed in the butcher shop building and are now working on finishing off the interior so that we can start cutting meat in the winter. Initially we’ll be state inspected so we’ll start by filling the CSA Pre-Buys and Kickstarter orders that are in Vermont as well as anyone who wants to pickup in Vermont.
Next we’ll apply for our USDA inspection so we can ship meat out of state. Getting the USDA license can take one to six months I’m told. Since we built from scratch to the USDA specifications and above I am hoping we’ll be on the faster track for our federal license. If all goes well it might be as early as March.
Before we ship anything we’ll contact all pre-buyers, both CSA Pre-Buyers and Kickstarter backers (which is also a pre-buy) via email to make sure that you’re ready to receive and will be home to put the meat into the freezer when it arrives. Shipments are sent signature required to make sure they are received and handled properly (e.g., refrigerated or frozen).
We won’t ship until you’re ready as we want to make sure you enjoy the highest quality product!
