Carman Ranch Direct
Why a Meat Buying Club?
The Carman Ranch Direct provides communities in the greater Portland area with access to smaller quantities of our 100% grass-fed and finished beef than traditionally available through our cow-share program. In addition, the buying club will feature a selection of other pasture-raised foods from Wallowa County producers. As a buying club member, you provide us with the opportunity to feed you the most flavorful, affordable, healthy, and humanely raised meats available.
How It Works
Members can sign up for a recurring monthly delivery, or select individual items from the web store with no minimum purchase and no long-term commitment.
