GA/FL Deliveries: Schedule, Info and FAQ


Four times each year, February, May, August and November, Peaceful Pastures delivers meat to customers in Georgia and Florida. We've tried to include most of the information below and in a Q & A format, but if you still have questions, PLEASE let us know! We look forward to meeting you in person!

 FINAL DEADLINE for ALL Retail (and add-on's to existing orders) July 4th

Bulk beef (whole, half, quarter); Bulk pork (whole, half)

With all the GA/FL Deliveries we encourage you to order early to ensure the items you have ordered are in stock; remember, we fill orders in the sequence they were received, so those who order first have the greatest likelihood of their orders being filed in their entirety.

New Customer Information

How do I place an order?
If you are a first time customer, you must order via our web site. If you are a returning customer, you may use the web site, phone (615-683-4291), or email us

What is a bulk order?
We have changed some of our nomenclature to hopefully make things more clear: BULK applies to beef by the whole, half, quarter; pork whole or half, lamb whole. Of course, as always, it is custom cut to your specifications. VOLUME applies to buying in quantity of the same item, such as 50 pounds or more of ground beef, 50 pounds or more of sausage, etc. You will find the volume prices (if they apply) by each item in the shopping cart of the web site.

What is the delivery fee?

  • Orders up to $200 - $35
  • Orders $201 - $500 - $45
    Orders $501 - $1,000 - 9% of the order's total
    Orders $1,001 - $2,500 - 8% of the order's total
    Orders over $2,501 and up - 7% of the order's total

  • How and when do I pay?
    Others than bulk deposits, nothing is charged to your card until we actually compile the order, from 14-21 days prior to the trip. You may pay deposits by credit card, Pay Pal or a mailed check. The final balance due is either charged to your card or paid by Pay Pal. All (individual) customers receive an itemized invoice via email. If you are paying by credit card, you will receive an email (please inform us of any email address changes) on the day your card is charged, informing you of the total charged. If you are paying by Pay Pal, we will send you a Pay Pal request for money. 

  • Order changes/cancellation policy?
    We are happy to make additions to your order right up until the ordering deadline, but deletions from your order at any time will result in a 30% restocking fee.  We take people at their word when they place orders from us, and to assure the fastest service, we have been packing the GA/FL as soon as they come in and sending them to the warehouse one pallet at a time.  PLEASE check your freezer space before placing an order; we do not want to charge people the extra re-stocking fee.  Please honor the commitment you make when you place the order with us. If more than one person is going in on an order, please make certain each persons commitment is firm (yet another good reason for individual instead of combined orders). 
  • Is the meat fresh or frozen?
    All of the meat will be delivered to you frozen, in 25-30 pound, clear plastic bags. Our meats are packed in dry ice for the trip to assure their integrity. 

  • Do I need to bring my own coolers?
    Yes. Please have your coolers cold BEFORE you put the meat in them. Please put loose ice into the cooler as you leave home. When you arrive at the stop, empty the ice and put your cold meat into a cold cooler. The meat coming out of the dry ice is -10 degrees; even if you have the air conditioning on in your car, your cooler may only be 70 degrees and this won't do the frozen meat any favors. If you live only an hour or so from the stop, you may want to just put the meat in sleeping bags and bundle it up! 

  • How does the pick up work?

    1. You will receive an email 7-10 days prior to the delivery giving the time at which to meet us and confirming the meeting point. We MUST receive a response to this email by reply or phone call. You order will not be loaded onto the truck unless we have a confirmation from you. We will get your cell phone numbers at that time as well as provide you with ours. It is critical that you are there by that delivery time, waiting on us.

    2. Unless otherwise indicated, we will pull into the semi parking area.

    3. We try to have our drop offs go as quickly as possible. This is why it is SO important for you to be there early. If even one person is late, it slows down the process for the rest of the people the rest of the day and is so unfair.

    4. Due to the large volume, the Tampa stop is especially busy and chaotic. It is much less so if everyone is there on time waiting for their bags. Please do not park blocking the back of the truck (the unloading area) so that everyone may have easy and fast access to the trailer's deck. If several people are coming for the same order, please have (only) one vehicle park up close to the truck.

    5. We need to get the meat unloaded quickly, into your coolers fast and the truck sealed back up ASAP. The minute we remove the meat from the dry ice, it has no refrigeration, and we will start unloading just as soon as we arrive at the drop off locations. We will not wait for everyone to get there first, so if you aren't there when the truck door opens, your meat will set out until you do arrive.

    6. Once there, you will receive a sheet of paper with your name on it, telling how many bags you are to receive and the bag numbers. You are responsible for checking the name tags on each bag to make sure it is your bag and keeping track of the numbers. Once you have received all of your bags, sign the bottom of the sheet and give it back to us and you are ready to leave! 

  • Where are the delivery stops?
    Please make sure you know where the stop is prior to the trip and be there waiting when we get there!! IF YOU ARE UNSURE WHERE YOUR STOP IS, PLEASE CALL US PRIOR TO THE DELIVERY DATE! Late customers affect everyone by slowing down every subsequent delivery. Be sure that we have your current cell phone numbers, and we will call if there are any substantial delays on our end. Orders that are not picked up on time will be forfeited and are non-refundable.

  • How do co-op orders work?
    A co-op order is placed by and paid for by one person. They then make arrangements for dividing the product and the cost amongst members. The co-op invoice will not break the order down by each member.

More Road Trip FAQ

Q: Will you stop anywhere other than what is listed above?
A: We're sorry, but no.

Q: Do you bring extra meat on the GA/FL deliveries?
A: We do not carry any extra product, only what has been ordered.

Q: Why do I have to order so early for road trips?
A: There are many different factors that we must consider several weeks before each trip. Keep in mind that we are compiling thousands of pounds of products for these trips. To provide you with the freshest products, we must know far enough in advance to have the appropriate number of animals processed. Remember all of our beef is aged at least 21 days for the best flavor so the animals are taken weeks in advance of the trip.  It also takes quite a long time to process, compile and weigh each order prior to the trip.

Q: Can I pay by cash or check when i pick up?
A: No, all orders must be paid prior to our departure from the farm.
