A Taste of Terra Madre

2008 Terra Madre delegates Miller Livestock and Goatfeathers Point have products available for purchase to Slow Food Northern Ohio members and friends. Details regarding the purchase of locally raised and grass-fed beef, lamb, chicken, turkey and goat meat are included below. Please contact each farm directly to place your order.

Goatfeathers Point Farm

Goatfeathers Point has a few very large (40lbs) frozen Broad Breasted Bronze turkeys remaining from our 2008 Thanksgiving sales we are offering for $2.50 a pound. This is a 50% savings and a one time offer!

Also, we are taking reservations for 2009 Thanksgiving turkeys and spring pastured meat goats. Reservations require a $20.00 deposit that applies to the final purchase price. 2009 season Broad Breasted turkeys are $5.00 a pound and Heritage, Bourbon Reds are $7.00 a pound. Birds will weigh between 15 and 20 pounds. The goats are Tennessee Fainters, the true American meat goat! The goat prices vary depending on the processing whole or cuts, and will range from 20 to 35 pounds.
