When ordering on our shop site (Barn2Door) and you are adding items to your cart...when asked to enter a number into the 'box' you will enter the quantity- not the weight.

Examples:

  1. "I want to order 2 roasts and they are average 3 pounds each roast." You would enter the number '2' for two roasts. You do not enter '6' for 6 pounds of roast.
  2. "I want to order 6 pounds of chicken wings and a whole chicken." You would enter 1 in the whole chicken box and 3 in the chicken wing box...chicken wings are around 2 pounds each package.

*Note: The number of items per package is listed on each item description on our shop site (Barn2Door).

Yes! We offer monthly community pick up locations around the Kansas City Metro.

Place your order online and select from one of our 'pick up' locations. We meet in the parking lot of local businesses or in community areas such as parks, coffee shops, plant nurseries, etc. Each pick up location meets for about 20 minutes so customers can stop by and quickly grab their order.

If you're a local business (with a parking lot) that would like to host us as one of our pick up locations, reach out via email (contact@farrarfamilyfarmkc.com). We'd love to partner with you!

Yes and no. It depends on the animal! To answer this question, you have to ask, "Is this animal an omnivore or herbivore?".

 

Our cattle and sheep are never fed any grain because they are herbivores. Even throughout the winter, we only feed them hay (dried grasses).

 

Our pigs, chickens, and turkeys are omnivores. That means they are able to process grains along with pasture grasses, bugs, shrubs, and other plants, plus anything the pigs can root up in the forest! They have free choice access (not force-fed) to a non-gmo grain mixture. We make sure they always have ample, fresh pasture or forest to graze and roam so they get a well-balanced diet.

Yes! We sell on Saturday mornings at the Downtown Lee's Summit Farmers Market. That market runs weather depending from April-October/November.

Please consider pre-ordering for the farmers market on our shop site (Barn2Door.) We can only bring a limited supply of products with us for walk-up orders at the market. Pre-ordering ensure you will get what you want and you'll have a quick pick up. It also makes it easier on us knowing that we will have guaranteed sales that day. Thank you!

 

*Tip: Most of our customers find it easier to pre-order our meat items for pick up at the market. Then they can make a weekly menu or meal plan prior to Saturday. On market day, they can shop for in-season produce to complete their grocery list.

No, not right now.

 

We used to raise egg chicken as well as meat chickens...bet you didn't know there were two 'types' of chickens! Raising egg chickens and selling eggs is so much more work than most people realized. Since it's only the two of us working the farm, we had to minimize our workload in order to make progress with our other tasks. Hopefully, as we expand our business and bring on employees, they can help us with the workload and we can eventually bring back our amazing free-range pastured eggs. We'll be sure to share the news once eggs become available again!

Not at this time. Due to time constraints, farm tours are not available.

Please understand that with just two people it leaves very limited time for us to take care of our personal life and get some rest. We share your same passion for knowing where your food comes from. However, we cannot accommodate tours into our schedule at this stage in life. Additionally, we live on a shared family property and have other family members' privacy to consider.

If tours do become available in the future, they will be for educational purposes. If you're looking for an opportunity for your children to touch or pet animals, please look to local agritourism avenues such as 'Deanna Rose Farmstead'.

Thank you for understanding our farm tour stance at this time.

Please note that we are 100% transparent about how we raise our animals and our farming practices. If you have any concerns or desires to be able to verify any of our claims and practices, we can arrange for you to pick up an order on the farm so you can actually see that we're doing what we say. We're an open book so please email with any questions or ask us in person at the farmers market. We'd love to chat!

Mooooo...

That's "Heeeey" in cow-speak. So, we tend to hear this sound a lot. If you want to let us hear some real human sounds, please reach out.
