Ranch Direct

Back when I posted about the power of the group buy, I acknowledged that many members had been clamoring for us to set up some sort of cowpooling. (For the uninitiated, cowpooling is where a group buys either a quarter-, half- or full cow and splits it amongst the members.) We’re excited to announce we actually have something a step better. A local ranch from Tehachapi has started partnering with CrossFit gyms to provide grass-fed beef direct. This particular ranch is called J&J Grassfed Beef and you can check out their site here.

I can personally vouch for the quality of their beef, since they used to have a booth at the Torrance Farmer’s Market. When they stopped showing at the Torrance market, I emailed Jay and asked if they did any sort of mail order. At that time, he informed me of their CSA* program but the closest drop-off point was in Long Beach. This was a deterrence, but I’ve stayed on their mailing list and kept intending to sign up…someday. Due to their relatively new Gym Delivery Program, he contacted Ruth and arranged to come in yesterday to talk with her about the program.

Here’s how it works, taken from their site:

Monthly Packs Start at just $55.00

  • Choose one of our 7 available packs.
  • Then add your favorite cuts to complete your order.

No Long Term Commitment!

Order only when you want!

Delivery is Free!

  • To our freezer at your gym.
  • Same day and time each month.
  • Orders are labeled by name, easy to find, grab and go!

You Receive

  • Monthly email reminders to place your order.
  • Order confirmation email.

Individual receipts at pick up

  • Name on the bags.
  • Number of bags for pickup.
  • Itemized breakdown of order and total amount charged.

As you can see, this is quite similar to how we already have delivery from Brian’s Bowls. J&J will be providing an additional freezer to us for the storage of the beef, after we start up with an initial 5 orders. The orders are delivered the 3rd Thursday of the month. We likely won’t be making the cutoff for the December delivery, but I could be wrong! If we have at least 5 people ready to go by tonight before 11pm, we should be able to make the December cutoff! If not, we’ll definitely be aiming for the January delivery, just in time for the beginning of our New Year Challenge.

There are fliers at the back of the gym by the cubbies, so please take one and/or check out the J&J website. They have their price list for the various packs and you can also see the a la carte items you can order in addition to your packs.

If you’re interested, post to comments and we’ll get our 5 orders in for January’s delivery.
