No Delivery

Adams Farm Slaughterhouse View – Click for the Big View

We are taking a break from deliveries. This is the first week in nineteen months that we haven’t gotten up at 2 am and driven down the three hours to the slaughterhouse to deliver our weekly batch of market pigs before picking up the meat from last week’s pigs and driving her roughly 600 mile delivery route. That long delivery route gets is to stores and restaurants all within 100 miles of our farm.

We jokes that we’re on vacation. And what’s are we doing for her vacations? We’re building a butcher shop. Our big goal is to not have to make that long drive down to Massachusetts in the dark hours of of winter. The people at Adams Farm Slaughterhouse are wonderful but the drive is a killer.

It was scared out of its wits.

    Won’t you still be doing deliveries to stores? Other than not having to drop the live hogs off how will the driving distances be changed?

    • The driving down to the butcher represents seven hours of the delivery day. Then there is two hours of sorting orders. When we’re doing it here we will incorporate the sorting right into the processing and it will be far, far more efficient. Between those two we will save over eight hours right there. The deliveries will still take a day but now Holly’s day on the road will become eight to ten hours instead of 18 hours. She really looks forward to that and so do I.

    Holly certainly works hard.

    I hope you are paying her what she is worth!
