Very cool stuff here folks. Despite some unfortunate setbacks last year, Dee Creek Farm is still rockin' along and they are just about set to bring their selection of raw milk products, produce, soaps and other Dee Creek specialties direct from the farm to the doorsteps of us city folks with the implementation of their Mobile Farm Store. Read on for the full story...
Licensed Grade A Dairy Within The Month!
After much time and anticipation, the dairy is nearly completed! We have a date with our local inspector for licensing (if all passes) on April 20th. We plan to begin sales of raw goat milk as early as the following week at our new Mobile Farm Store.
Where and When?
We have yet to determine exact times and locations for drops, but are considering the downtown Vancouver area, as well as the Salmon Creek area, around 134th Street. We will need a place to park the Mobile Farm Store for 2 hours, once a week (two separate locations). We will be equipped with our own generator to keep the fridge in service, so electrical hookups will not be required. We welcome customer participation in the farm, so any input of ideas for possible delivery/drop locations are welcome and appreciated!
We will limit each drop off to 2-hours, two times a week in Vancouver, and once in Woodland. Our Mobile Farm Store will carry the products that have come to characterize Dee Creek Farm, including (but not exclusively!) fresh produce and herbs, handmade soap, lotions, other home and skincare products, farm fresh eggs, plants, and a multitude of dairy products. We will also carry a diverse line of goods from local families and businesses that believe in natural, sustainable living.
The Ins & Outs of Dairy Products
Customers maintaining monthly pre-paid orders will have first dibs on the milk. They will be paying $6.50/half-gallon (compare to Wild Oat’s price for pasteurized goat milk for $6.58/half-gallon). All walk-up and non pre-paid customers will pay retail at $7.00/half-gallon, and be subject to availability. If monthly payment is late by more than 8 days, you will no longer be considered a Pre-Paying Customer. You will then be buying your milk at retail price, and will not be guaranteed milk at the drop off. Retail customers may contact us via our cell phone at the drop to make sure there is still milk available.
Taking Orders NOW!!!
We are taking a list for committed pre-pay customers. You will need to send a non-refundable deposit of $26 immediately to begin your commitment, along with an email or phone call to confirm. This will be used toward your first month of milk, beginning May 1st.
Initially, we will offer fluid raw Nubian GOAT milk ONLY.
This is what you are committing to by replying to this email. However, this is only the beginning. In the next few weeks you can expect to see a wider variety of GOAT products including raw cream, pasteurized yogurt, kefir, cheeses, and butters. We are planning to offer non-homogenized COW milk and dairy products in early summer.
