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.
