The Saddle Ridge truck will be in the far end of the Tranquility Parking lot.
The pick up window will be 30 minutes, so just make sure to be on time : ). You bring your cooler and a check. He will have coolers with names of the customers, so it will be an easy process.

We LOVE Saddle Ridge Farm so much that we are starting a BUYERS CLUB and will be a designated delivery location for farm fresh meat and eggs!
Saddle Ridge Farm is a family-run, sustainable farm in the Culpepper, VA area. They provide natural meats without added hormones, antibiotics or man-made additives. The feeds provided to animals raised on Saddle Ridge Farm are non-GMO.
You can literally TASTE the difference in their food! Visit their website to place an order and pick up at Tranquility (or other local delivery spots!)
This is a great opportunity for all of us to access healthier, pasture raised meats. (Below, I have included some of the benefits of pasture raised meats even over organic that you would buy from the grocery store.) They are grass fed and moved every day to get fresh grass. The operation at the farm is nothing short of amazing!
Basically, the way a buyer’s club works is that you PLACE YOUR ORDER 2 weeks before a scheduled delivery (you will have to create an account the first time). You can select the Haymarket pick-up and then come to the Tranquility parking lot at the determined drop off date/time. If you can’t make the time, we can put your order in a freezer that we have in the salon to pick up! We will have deliveries once a month.
Some of the benefits of pasture raised meats are as follows:
- 1/3 less fat than traditionally raised beef.
- 3-5 x more CLA than grain fed beef
- Higher in CLA (this is all pasture-raised meats, not just beef)
CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) has been shown to assist in the prevention of:
- Cardiovascular Disease
- High Cholesterol and Triglycerides
- Insulin Resistance
- CLA has also been shown to assist in weight control.
Benefits of Pasture Raised Eggs
- 1/3 less cholesterol
- 1/4 less saturated fat
- 2/3 more vitamin A
- 2 times more omega-3 fatty acids
- 3 times more vitamin E
- 7 times more beta carotene
Remember that what your meat eats is critical to what goes into your body, so the healthier the animal, the healthier you will be. Organic meats that you purchase from the grocery store are also free of hormones, pesticides, and antibiotics, but they are often simply raised in feedlots on grain products. This significantly decreases the health benefits of the product.
Meat from grass-fed animals has four times higher amounts of Vitamin E than grain-fed animals. Most Americans are deficient in Vitamin E. It is a potent antioxidants that is linked to lower risk of heart disease & cancer.
