here’s how it works
Step One: Schedule your gathering with Alluvial. In Seattle area:
Sunday October 20, 2-5 p.m.
Sunday November 3, 2-5 p.m.
Or in Whatcom County area:
Sunday September 1, 2-5 p.m.
Sunday September 15, 2-5 p.m.
Sunday October 13, 2-5 p.m.
Sunday October 27, 2-5 p.m.
Step Two: Send an invitation to your friends and family …
along with a link to this page, and to our What to expect page. Your guests can see the contents of a whole or half pork share in words and photos, as well as view a video of loading a half share in a freezer.
Our goal is to deliver at least three animals to each party. When we hit this target the host receives $100 off their own purchase of a whole or half share, and we bring links and beverages to celebrate.
Shares equalling three animals could look like:
Six families - each family orders one half share.
Seven families - two families split a half, and five families each order one half share
Five families - one family orders a whole share, and four families each order one half share.
Step Three: On the date of your party, Alluvial Farms will:
Deliver all shares to a gathering open to any of your community.
Host a small farm stand for pork sales by the cut - for those guests who are not quite ready for the whole or half hog shares.
Supply you and your guests with pork on the grill and beverages (you provide the grill).
Share images and stories from the farm with your guests to tell the story of our food. Facilitate discussion of ways to prepare and share.
Provide each guest with a digital recipe book.
