here’s how it works
Step One: Schedule Your Seattle Pork Party Date with Alluvial
Sunday August 11, 2-5 p.m.
Sunday August 18, 2-5 p.m. RESERVED!
Sunday September 22, 2-5 p.m. RESERVED!
Sunday October 20, 2-5 p.m.
Sunday November 3, 2-5 p.m.
Or Schedule Your Whatcom County Date with Alluvial:
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 webpage, and a link to our What to expect page. On What to expect your guests can see the contents of a whole or half pork share in words and photos, as well as view a video of Alluvial Farms loading a half share in a freezer. It takes three cubic feet, so the contents of a standard above fridge freezer, with a little room to spare. See for yourself just how much space a half hog takes!
Our target is to deliver equivalent of at least three animals to each house party. When we hit this target the host receives $100 off their own purchase of a whole or half share. Equivalent of 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.
We will check in as the date for your pork party approaches to see how we are doing on reaching our goal.
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.
