Today's Co-op Order

Yesterday was pick-up day for the co-op. It was like Christmas, I got a bunch of really great stuff. In fact, it was my biggest order ever, and it's not even close! I actually had the biggest order of anyone at my particular pick-up site. It was also the Oklahoma Food Cooperative's biggest month ever. They broke over $100,000 in gross revenue, which they have never done before. That is fantastic news in keeping the co-op alive and kicking!


15# pecans
pastured eggs
pastured chicken leg quarters
pastured chicken livers
pastured chicken hearts
pastured chipotle pepper chicken sausage
grass-fed ribeyes
grass-fed ground beef
grass-fed stew meat
grass-fed cube steaks
grass-fed raw cheddar cheese
grass-fed raw cheddar cheese with sun-dried tomatoes
grass-fed butter
cilantro

Buying 15 pounds of pecans, in shell, is either the smartest thing I've ever done, or the stupidest. Pecans are native to Oklahoma, so at this time of year, the best pecans you'll ever taste are available. I wanted to make sure I bought enough while they're in season to last me until next year. I'm dreaming of homemade pecan butter, my Toasted Butter Pecan Cake, granola, and more. They were much more economical to buy still in the shell. But 15 pounds is a lot more than you think it would be! I think I'm just going to have to plop myself in front of the television for a couple of hours with a movie in and a nutcracker in my hand.

And yes, I did buy chicken livers and chicken hearts for human consumption. Part of living a sustainable, whole foods lifestyle means eating organ meats! They're very healthy; in fact, chicken hearts are one of the most nutrient dense foods available.

Once again, my sister-in-law also placed an order through me. Here's what she got.

pastured eggs
pastured chicken leg quarters
pastered chipotle pepper chicken sausage
grass-fed arm roast
grass-fed ground beef
grass-fed colby cheese
grass-fed butter
local honey
peanut butter
hard red wheat berries

Don't forget, a membership to the Oklahoma Food Cooperative, or co-op in your area, makes a great Christmas gift! Until next month, Happy Pecan Eating!

  6. It would be great to meet your wife! I love getting to know everyone from the co-op.

    No, I don't make dog food. I just feed my dog raw, whole foods, like dogs are meant to eat. Check out my post about it here: http://www.anorganicwife.com/2012/09/my-dogs-raw-food-diet.html

  7. I live in OK too and had been thinking of joing the OK Coop in our area but we have friend's who said that they had not been impressed with the coop so I have been hesitant. So, what is your take on it? Would you reccomend it or is it more of a disappointment? Also, since you are a member do they require a certain amount purchased every month?

  8. @Anonymous, I love the Oklahoma Food Cooperative. If you click on the 'Locavore' tab at the top, you will find all of my co-op posts and see that I highly recommend it. There are literally thousands of products to choose from - wonderful grass-fed and pastured meats, beautiful organic produce and much, much more. I'd be curious to know why your friend is not impressed.
    No, there is not a minimum purchase requirement. You do not have to order any month you don't want to.

  9. I've looked at the OK Coop website very extensively so upon your reccomendation I will seriously consider joining. I just wanted a good reccomendation before doing so. I didn't want to pay a membership fee for something that I would be disappointed in. Thank you.
