Once you have paid your deposit, please check your email to be sure you have received an order confirmation. This assures you that your order has been received by us and will be added to the reservation list. Corey will contact you to give you a timeframe for when your order will be filled. By timeframe, he'll often use the season: winter, spring, summer, fall.
While you are on the reservation list, Corey will email you a message every 4 - 6 weeks just to reassure you that your name remains on the list and you're getting closer to having a freezer full of the best beef you'll ever have!
As your reservation edges up the list, we will be able to assign a shipment date. This is the date your order leaves the farm. Corey will contact you with this date approximately 30 days ahead of the shipment date.
Shipment dates are usually on Thursday's. Next, Corey will email you an invoice for your order within a day or two after the shipment date. He will follow-up with a phone call to go over the details with you and answer any questions. An important task he will remind you to do during this call is to contact Wenger's Meats to place your custom processing order. (The processor will assist you in determining the type and size of cuts that will best suit your liking). If this is your first time placing an order with us, you may want to view these possible beef cuts and our Carwood Farm Beef Cuts Guide.
From this point, it will take about 3-4 weeks to process your order. We will contact you again when the meat is ready for pick-up.
You will then pick up the meat from Wengers, and pay the processor for his services at that time.
Now you have a freezer full of prime, healthy local beef that your and your family can enjoy!
