If you go to the Farm Raised Meats category on the left side of the Market page. Then click on the sub-catagory called Turkey, there you will find the $25 deposit option to reserve your turkey. Turkeys are available after the 8th of November.

We are also offering Naturally grown, Smoked Hams (on the bone, nitrate free, chemical smoke free). You can pick those up on any scheduled delivery date. The naturally raised pork is cured with a sugar and salt cure. No MSG or sodium nitrate used. Lean. No antibiotics or growth hormones. They get lots of sun, garden veggies, whey, weeds and grass. Marinade your ham in your favorite spices and slow cook.
Please share our coop with friends and family, the farmers have lots of precious vegetables and meats to sell. If you want …. “Like us” on facebook because we try to post pictures and interesting things that go on at the farm there.

Remember: We do give you money back on the undamaged glass jelly jars and rings. We can refund you $0.50 cents each for those that are returned back in great shape.

Remember: We do take used egg cartons that are still in good shape. It helps with the environment and help us keep the cost down.

WOW Freezes in May. This is really hard to get a summer garden to come up. We have covered the tomatoes, peppers and eggplant 8 or 9 times in the past 2-3 weeks to prevent them from getting frost or a freeze on them. Lost a few plants to the cooler weather. Some veggies won’t germinate with such cool weather. How ever we are getting there and we are excited about the summer veggies.

Note: If you buy the jars of jelly. We would like for you to save the jars and rings and not throw them away. Please bring them back to us and we can refund you $0.50 cents each for those that are returned back in great shape.

Note: If you buy eggs from us and would like to save the cartons for us that would be much appreciated. It helps with the environment and help us keep the cost down. Please only return the cartons that are in good shape.

Thanks so much for your support of Rose Creek Farms Locally Grown, all of our growers, local food, and our rights to eat it. You all are part of what makes North Texas such a great area in which to live.
