Hi Everyone,

I was thinking about purchasing a Winter Box from Svetec Farms (http://svetecfarms.com/winter-deliver...) and was wondering if anyone had any opinions on their products and whether what they are offering is a good value for the cost?

I am interested in getting more local, ethically raised products but have no experience with this so I am not really aware what is a good price etc. So any opinions on their quality and the prices would be really helpful.

Thank very much!

    The winter option for a $145 lb box of beef is not very forthcoming. Not enough information on weights or thickness of steaks. It might be as small as 15 lb.

    I tried to buy eggs from them at the farmgate three times last spring and was refused because the chickens were not laying.
    I bought a thin T-bone steak, hard to grill. There wasn't much choice.

    I have had much better luck at www.beefconnections.ca
    Here is a similar package http://www.beefconnections.ca/Product...

      I purchased a couple of ducks 2 weeks ago and am happy with the purchase. I also requested extra duck fat, if they had any, and they were helpful.
