Natural Farms sells beef from their Bixby farm, processed at the on-site, State Inspected Facility, without the use of MSG or fillers. They sell additional Oklahoma-sourced meat (pork, bison, lamb, chicken), from farms that raise animals cage-free, are pasture-fed, and are not raised on animal by-products, antibiotics, or synthetic hormones.
They also sell Oklahoma-sourced dairy products, eggs, honey, produce, beauty products, and dog food, as well as locally-roasted coffee. Their store sells packaged foods, with a wide range of organic and gluten-free choices. They also have a selection of bulk items, vitamins, books, and more. You can see the available products at their online store.
The co-op program costs $45 a year, with occasional discounts offered through Living Social or Group On. Members can purchase one or more of the three weekly food bags at $35 for one or $68 for two, each of which contains roughly enough food for 2 people for 1 week, and is a great way to get into cooking a variety of food at home rather than eating out. The produce bag is about 2/3 vegetables and 1/3 fruit, and includes recipe suggestions. The meat bag is a variety of the cuts sold in the store. The rise 'n shine bag contains breakfast items such as milk and eggs. The contents of the meat and rise 'n shine bags are known at the start of the week, when you reserve a bag. The produce bag's contents are unknown, based on what is in season at the source farms.
Members also get a 10% discount on shelf items.
Jeff and Chris Emerson started raising cattle on their Bixby Farm in 1995. They raise Piedmontese cattle, a lean Italian breed. They opened their retail store in 2000. In May 2013, they introduced a mobile market (a converted bus) that visits farmer's markets.
