CSA for Carnivores: Thundering Hooves (new Bryant delivery stop)

You live in Seattle, so I’m sure you’ve heard of Community-Supported Agriculture, or CSA. Simply put, you subscribe to a farm, and, on a regular basis, the farm delivers unto you a box of vegetal vittles that they have grown (or partnered with another farm to provide).

But what to do if you’re hankering for some animal protein to go with all that local and in-season veggie goodness?

Thundering Hooves has the answer.

Thundering Hooves is a fourth-generation family farm down in Walla Walla which raises, finishes, AND slaughters beef (100% grass-fed), lamb, goat, and pastured poultry. They also offer pork from hogs raised in their area under the same standards they’ve set for their own animals.

While they are CSA-like (you work directly with the farm to order products), Thundering Hooves (TH) is not going to put random parts of animals in a box and send it to you every week. “Surprise! It’s tongue for dinner!” will not be a problem (unless YOU want it to be).

Here’s how it works (for Seattle residents ordering à la carte, so to speak):

  1. Customers order online from TH’s product list (containing 119 different items, from beef cheeks to whole hogs);
  2. Each item ordered is ‘reserved’ to be delivered at the location of your choice (locations are listed in chronological order), and an estimate total is generated;
  3. A 7% delivery fee is added (maximum of $30) is added to cover fuel costs;
  4. On the chosen delivery date and time, simply show up to the chosen delivery date to pick up orders. Pay with cash or check (no cards yet, at this time). A reminder email is sent out a few days before the delivery date.

Final price is dependent on the final weight of the items (pork chops are like snowflakes, you know), which is only finally official at the time of delivery. I would suggest that those who pay in cash should bring along a little extra, just in case.

Thundering Hooves has been delivering in Seattle for while now, distributing orders at various pick-up sites on a monthly (four week) basis. There’s a Ravenna/Maple Leaf delivery location that neighborhood residents are already taking advantage of. AND, starting next month, a Bryant delivery location will be added to the list.

Sarah, the host at the new Bryant delivery location, was kind enough to chronicle her first delivery for us (all pictures by Sarah):

Thundering Hooves' distributor is Carfini Gourmet. In addition to delivering the TH orders, Carfini also offers their own milk, eggs and small chickens for purchase at delivery sites (while supplies last).

Sarah's order - "a really nice ham (with no bone!! about 10 meals worth of ham!!), bacon, bacon bits, lamb bones for my mom's dog, 2 NY steaks, 4 garlic lamb sausages, 1 pork tenderloin, and 2 lamb shanks"

Sarah has a few Thundering Hooves sample bags available, if you’d like to try before you buy. Contact her at swanney40 [at] hotmail.com, if you’re interested.
