Box Notes:

To those who were able to attend, thank you for visiting the farm last Saturday to celebrate Autumn!! We had about 75 pumpkin pickers running around the pumpkin patch, touring the farm, eating carnitas, tamales, and many other delicious dishes and enjoying the shade of the giant walnut trees at our farm in Brooks. Hope to see you next year! The date of next year’s Riverdog Farm Pumpkin Party will be Saturday October 21, 2016.


We have Giant White Pumpkins available this year: to decorate your front porch, to make special events festive, or display at your local school or business/place of work. They run about 50 to 100 lbs each and cost $1 per pound. Please contact the farm to place your order for the Giant White Pumpkins.


Special Order: Whole Hams for the Holidays

Place your order for whole or half hams by November 16, 2016 for delivery the week of Thanksgiving. The hams are $10 per pound. They range in size from 6-12 lbs. Please contact the farm: csa@riverdogfarm.com or 530-796-3802 to place your order.


Whole Chickens and Pastured Pork: Bacon, Sausage, Ham, and Pork Cuts available year round.

Please contact the farm at csa@riverdogfarm.com for pricing and to place your order. The meat orders are delivered to CSA sites frozen in a strapped cooler. The farm retrieves the empty coolers from the CSA site the week after delivery. Please take your meat order out of the cooler the day of delivery or return the cooler the following week to the CSA delivery site.

Riverdog farm pigs and chicken are certified organic animals raised on diets of certified organic corn/soy/triticale, produce culls, alfalfa, rye grass, clover, Three Twins Ice Cream overruns, and whey from Cowgirl Creamery. The meat is not labeled organic because the processing facilities are not yet certified organic. We are working with our processors to have the facilities become certified organic so that we can label the packaged meat as certified organic.

The Thursday (11/24/16) and Friday (11/25/16) CSA deliveries will happen on Tuesday November 22, 2016.  Please make a note of this delivery scheduling change on your calendar. Thank you!
