Product Availability and Inventory Updates
Published on June 2, 2021
Product Notice: Turkey
Turkey offal (Heart and Liver in particular) has been on back order for quite a few weeks now, which is essential for our Turkey grind. With COVID, raw meat producers are facing limited staff which makes it difficult to separate the offal as part of their normal processing. For these reasons, our Ground Turkey/Bones/Organs is currently out of stock.
I would recommend signing up for stock notifications within the product description to receive automatic email notifications once additional stock is added.
I am expecting our next Turkey grind to be processed the week of 04/12, that is if our deliveries are completed as expected. Most likely, our Ground Turkey/Bones/Organs will be added to the website on 04/14.
Unfortunately, this does not mean that we are in the clear from supply availability hardships, but it is a good sign that supply is starting to bounce back from the difficulties stemming from the pandemic.

What is your schedule for processing products and handling out of stock inventory?
Our processing schedule runs as follows:
Mondays and Tuesdays are our shipping days, so we do not process on these days except for packaging some dehydrated treats.
Wednesdays we package all non-ground items, such as hearts, trim, whole fish, meaty bones, etc. We also grind and package poultry, fish and occasionally some red meats such as goat, llama, and ground organs.
Thursday's processing is rabbit, beef, tripe, beef pancreas and pork.
Fridays are live rabbit intake, farm related chores, facility maintenance, process for out of stock inventory, etc. Each Friday, demanding on supply availability, whole prey rabbits will be processed.
Our Freeze Dried product line is currently limited in availability given the length of processing time (around 40 hours for the freeze dried cycle alone). We add inventory for our Freeze Dried products on Mondays and Wednesdays each week.
Typically, inventory is added to the website around 4:30 EST following our processing days.
We work extremely hard at keeping all inventory in stock, but we do run out occasionally and need time to get restocked. On the product pages you will see the quantities available. If you order more than the quantity listed you will not be able to check out. You can only order what we have in stock. I do not back order items that are not yet available because it is an inventory nightmare to track. Orders are done on a first come first serve basis, no pre-orders.
If product is out of stock you can sign up for an email notification to be notified when product stock is updated. Click on request stock notification. If an item is out of stock for more than a week this means it is unavailable at the present time.
For some items the demand exceeds supply such as tripe, pancreas, Alpaca and Llama. These items sell out on a weekly basis. The best way to get these items is to order immediately, once you are notified that the product has been added. Again, first come, first serve.
