Best of: Meat CSA – Victorian Farmstead

It was back in October of 2010 that we decided to give a Paleo diet a try, after reading Robb Wolf’s Paleo Solution. It’s been over a year now and we have never felt better!

Paleo, short for Paleolithic, or sometimes called a caveman diet is basically a hunter-gatherer diet. Lean meat (grass fed), veggies, fruit, nuts, roots.

We gave up rice, beans, corn, all flours and gluten, and potatoes.

All this really meant in the long run, is we needed more fruit, veggies, and good grass fed meat (none of that stringy, chewy stuff)

At our local Friday Farmer’s Market in Sonoma, we met Adam Parks. Adam and his wife Laura own Victorian Farmstead, in Sebastopol. We think this the best beef, pork, lamb and chicken we’ve ever had.

We just renewed our year subscription of their CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) meat box. Adam is super flexible, and there are 5 or 10 pound boxes of meat every other week that include roasts, steaks and ground meats.

We signed up for 10 pounds every other week, plus a chicken. I know it sounds like a lot, but we end up buying even more from Adam every Friday.

You can also find Adam at the Moraga Farmer’s Market.

It’s cool to know we are supporting a local, sustainable, family owned operation.

I’m looking forward to posting some dishes we have made using Victorian Farmstead’s meats, so stay tuned! – Skippy

    Thanks Cavegirls! You are not only my best customers, and probably my best marketing tool (that’s right, I called you “tools”!), but it has been great to see how what we do has a direct impact on someone else’s lives. I remember listening to T talk to someone at the market about how the Paleo diet was effecting her and Mia in such a great way, and it was cool thinking we had a little to do with that. Here’s to many more years of meat and friendship!
