Without farms, apple pie trees would go unpicked and vagrant silos would be arrested for loitering behind the mall. Show a farm some love with today's Groupon to Rainbow Ranch Farms in Pinon Hills. Choose between the following options:
• For $25, you get a one-year farm share membership and $25 worth of goods (a $50 total value).
• For $35, you get a protein basket of one whole chicken, 4 pounds of beef, and 4 pounds of pork (a $74.50 value).
Rainbow Ranch Farms raise livestock humanely, sustainably, and organically, in addition to running C.S.A. programs and distributing meat, milk, and eggs to local stores. The farmers do not feed their freely grazing pre-meat any gluten, antibiotics, hormones, nightmare-seeds, or other harmful ingredients. Beef, poultry, lamb, and game birds are just a few of the farm's offerings, in addition to goats' milk, duck eggs, and dinosaur eggs that hatch omelet-chef triceratopses. By using ecologically friendly farming methods and renewable resources and adhering to the philosophies of permaculture and biodynamic agriculture, Rainbow Ranch is entirely self-sustainable.
Stop by the farm on the first Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. to pick up a protein basket, which contains 4 pounds of beef, 4 pounds of pork, and a whole chicken weighing between 2.5 and 3 pounds. Or pick out $25 worth of goods and become a farm member to receive discounts and first pick of goods. Members also get to participate in educational and community events, visit the pastures and grazing land, and receive a barn to keep in their wallets as proof of membership.
