Greetings Swansea Buying Club Members!

It's time to start up the Buying Club again! If you know anyone who might be interested in joining please pass the information along. We are always happy to have new members! The Buying Club Store is now open through Tuesday evening June 16th for delivery on June 20th at 2:30 PM.

Please take a few minutes and read through these guidelines below before placing your order.   If you have any questions at any point along the way please do not hesitate to contact me at  

Please note that the prices listed on the store are per pound and do not reflect the actual weight or price of each product in your cart.  For example, the price listed for a whole chicken is $4.75/lb.  A whole chicken can range from 3-5 lbs (you can select your size) and therefore your whole chicken will be $4.75 x the weight of the bird you have selected.  The same goes for any roasts that you might order.  Please note that the weight range for each product is in the product description.  You will get a separate email with your actual total when we have finished weighing and packing your orders.
1.  To place your orders, please go to:
Your username:  (the email address that you are using to read this)
Your password:  swansea (no caps)
2. Click on any of the “Stores” to begin shopping. (Stores are simply how we categorize the different types of products we offer:  Grassfed Beef, Pastured Poultry, Pastured Pork, Hopkins Farm Lamb, Free-Range Eggs, Maple Syrup).

3. Select the products / quantities that you would like to purchase and add them
to your shopping cart.
4. Navigate to other “Stores” using the column on the right-hand side of the page.
6. When you have finished shopping in all the stores click “Continue to Check-
7. Review your order. Edit quantities if necessary. When your order is complete,
click “Continue to Checkout.”
8. YOU AREN'T FINISHED YET!  Select your pick-up location (Swansea). Click “Choose and
9.  If you have any notes for us / special requests write them here. (Ex: “We are a large family and would like our butt roast to be on the larger side).   We make NO guarantees that
we will be able to honor your request but will do our best.
10.  Submit your order!  NOTE: You will receive a confirmation e-mail immediately after placing your order. This confirmation email should list the items that you have ordered.  If you do not receive a confirmation e-mail, it means we did not receive your order.  If you are unsure if your order went through, please contact me. 
What if you are trying to place an order and are totally placed my order but
made a mistake?  Don’t worry! Remember, there are (friendly!!) humans on the
other side of your computer screen. Email. Call. We can help!
Important stuff you need to know
1.  All prices listed (with the exception of eggs) are PER POUND
2. All of our meats are pre-packaged and frozen, per USDA and RI Department of Health Department regulations.
3.  Quantity is the number of PACKAGES you would like to order (NOT the number of pounds).

4. See the description of each item for an approximate weight range for each package.

5. Occasionally due to circumstances beyond our control we may need to make substitutions (a Shoulder Roast for a Butt Roast, for example).  If you prefer not to receive any substitutions, please note this when placing your order.

5. We are not able to provide invoices with payment totals until after we pack your orders. Once all orders are placed, we will hand weigh each item and calculate the cost. This process will take us a few days after when the store closes. (If necessary, you should be able to calculate a fairly accurate ballpark figure based on quantities ordered, package sizes and price per pound.)

6. There is a $.25 per pound delivery fee assessed to all orders to help off-set our fuel costs.

 8. At this time we are able to receive payments via CASH (exact change only), check, Meat Money, or PayPal (though you must note this in your order to receive a PayPal invoice).

9. Remember to bring a cooler or insulated bag to transport your order home.

QUESTIONS / CONCERNS - Contact Jessica at, or (401) 598-6259.

NOTE: You will receive a confirmation e-mail immediately after placing your order. If you do not receive a confirmation e-mail, it means we did not receive your order.

Hi all!

There is so much going on at the farm that I don't know where to start. We have just finished lambing and what can I say they are sooo cute. Special shout out to all of our amazing ewes that did an fantastic job. More piglets set to born this week and the new laying hens have arrived and are enjoying their new egg-mobiles. We still have our Livestock Guardian Dog puppies for a few more weeks before they go to their new farm homes. Needless to say it is a fun time on the farm.

In other big, late breaking news we are opening up our on-farm store at Boesch Farm (830 South Rd. East Greenwich, RI) TOMORROW, Saturday April 27 from 9am-1pm. For all of you southern Rhode Islanders this is an opportunity to load up on all of our amazing products - grass-fed beef & lamb, pastured pork, chicken, turkey and free range chicken and duck eggs!!! TOMORROW ONLY  the first 10 customers to the store receive a free dozen eggs and all customers get a ticket for a chance to win a Pat's Pastured Gift Certificate for $30 (redeemable at the store or farmers' market). Visiting the store is also a great chance to visit with all of animals and see the new farm. 

Finally, there are still a few Meat & Poultry CSA shares available for the Spring/Summer 2012 season. You can find the sign up form at our website Sign up soon because there is only a few weeks left before it starts.

We continue to be at the Hope Artiste Village Wintertime Farmers' Market every Saturday 10am-1pm,  through May 12.

Thanks again for all of your support.

Spring is officially upon us and the weather has been amazing. The farm is bustling with new life - piglets, baby chicks, puppies and in the upcoming weeks lambs. We are excited to offer another season of our popular Meat/Poultry CSA program. It is a great way to support a local farm and get delicious locally raised grass-fed and pasture-raised meat. Please check out the link below for more details about the program. The FAQ page should answer any of your questions but if you need any additional information please send us an email at This is a very popular program and the spaces fill up quickly, so don't delay sending in your sign up form and payment.

Thanks again for supporting our farm!

Warm regards,

Pat & the Pat's Pastured Crew
