Frequent Free Ranger Group

Frequent Free Ranger Group

This is a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) inspired group, where subscribers pledge to purchase between 4-6 kg of meat on a regular basis, at the fixed price of $18/kg. The meat will be randomly chosen by Lucy House and will be roughly based on the following approximate amounts:

·       1 pack Prime cuts of steak or chops (beef or pork)
·       1 Roast Type (Beef, Pork, Lamb or Goat) – this could include pickled pork or cornbeef
·       1 Stewing cut –  could include diced, osso bucco, chops, stewing steak, diced goat/lamb 
·       1 Mince
     1 Sausage Pack
·       1kg Bacon and Ham
·       or whatever else I have a lot of at the time

I will try to swap this around each week so that you don’t get the same cut, but if we have a lot of subscribers this may prove to be too difficult. Please let me know if you aren’t getting enough variety or if you really like one particular cut.  

The main purpose of this is to clear some of the items of meat that don’t sell as readily, or that I have an abundance of one week. It is also a way to reward regular customers and to try to reduce the cost for those regulars.

To Subscribe, email me with the following:

·       Nominate whether Fortnightly or Monthly
·       Nominate if you don’t want goat or any other cut of meat
·       Nominate preference for Nitrate Free or Conventional
·       Nominate number of people to feed 
·       Payment will be on collection (cash or card) or via EFT.


·       If you are unable to collect – please arrange for someone else to, and failing that, you can drop out for that weekend, but please let me know by Friday night.

·       Cancelation – if you find that you are not happy with the selection you get and want to opt out of the subscription, you can cancel at any time. Please give me as much warning as possible, but at least by the Friday night before the market.

Markets are in Yeppoon and Rockhampton twice per month. Rocky is the 1st and 3rd Sunday and Yeppoon is the Saturday before this. Bundaberg and Gladstone will be the 2nd weekend in the month.

Subscribers from other towns will be the same weekends. Please keep in mind that there are usually two months that have 5 weekends, which means there will be a 3 week gap twice per year.
