Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why can't I see all of your products?
A: Products are displayed according to their pick up options. For example; if a product is not offered to be picked up weekly, then you will not be able to view that product when searching under weekly farm pick ups. Try changing pick up locations to see all product options.
Q: What if I want to cancel?
A: Cancellations or vacation holds may be made by simply emailing Sarah before the charges for each share is placed. See "Ordering Ends" under "location schedule" for cancellation cut off dates, cut off dates are 4 weeks before pick up dates.
Q: What about pork, lamb, and goat bones?
A: All bones, offal, parts, and fat are offered as add-ons via the webstore.
Q: Can I choose what cuts are in my share?
A: Unfortunately all animals are cut the same way and all shares are split equally. Each share will be the equivalent of one whole or one half animal standard cut and wrap and divided equally over 12 months. All products in shares are also offered online on our webstore by the pound, this may be a better option for those who have specific needs.
Q: What if I am out of time the last week of the month and can not pick up my share?
A: You can visit your subscription to skip any pick-up date. If you'd like to reschedule your pick-up date to another day, please email Sarah or end us a message through our contact page. Pick-up options are Monday through Saturday 10 am to 4 pm.

Q: There is a planned PGE PSPS event and I don't want to lose my favorite pasture raised meats in the power outage, what can I do?
A: If ever a PSPS event is scheduled around the same time as a CSA distribution week GSF will happily retain your share in our large walk in freezer for you during the duration of the outage, we have adequate generator back up to keep it running through these power outages. A special pick up for all members affected will be scheduled once power is restored and if there are no threat of fires.
Q: Even a half pork or chicken share is too much for me, can I split them?
A: Unfortunately there is northing smaller than a half pork or chicken share, all animals are cut the same way and all shares are split equally. Each share will be the equivalent of one whole or one half animal standard cut and wrap and divided equally over 12 months. The good news is, all products in shares are also offered online on our webstore by the pound, this may be a better option for those who have specific needs.
Q: Where do you slaughter your meat?
A: All of our poultry is processed and packaged at Squab Producers of California. All other animals are harvested and packaged at North Bay Butchers in Petaluma, CA.
Q: Where are your animals cut and wrapped?
A: See "Where do you slaughter your meat?" question on this page for details about slaughter. Once harvested at a California USDA humane slaughterhouse our carcasses are sent to a USDA inspected cut and wrap facility. At this time we use North Bay Butchers in Petaluma, CA for all of our pork, goat, and lamb cut and wrap. Our preferred USDA Smoke House is Roundmans Smokehouse in Fort Bragg, CA.
