How Does it Work?

  1. Sign up here to create a Carlton Farms account. Enter a delivery address to get your farm fresh goods delivered to your door or office building. We also have several drop-off or mobile market locations around the metro Atlanta area. Though we do ask you to input your credit card information, registration is free and you wont be charged until you have your first order delivered. 
  2. After you have signed up, it’s time to start shopping! We carry a large selection of farm fresh foods for you to choose from; including everything from pasture-raised meats, wild caught fish, raw dairy products, pastured eggs, organic fruits and vegetables, all-natural pantry products, cultured products, raw honey & personal care, all from local sources. Orders can be placed for individual orders, or a recurring weekly order.
  3. Your account will be charged the evening before delivery.

The mobile market is set up at a specific location on a specific day at a specific time. We do not leave any products at these locations beyond the indicated time. You don’t have to pre-order items to shop at the mobile market.

The drop-off locations are where we deliver your pre-ordered items and drop them off for you to pick-up during the times indicated, you will have a longer pick-up window than with the mobile market.

Tell Me More About the Meat You Sell:

Our beef cattle roam our pastures 365 days per year. The diet consists of grass... no grains at all. We grow our own hay with no pesticides or herbicides for supplemental winter feed.

Our cows receive antibiotics only when they are sick and in need of an antibiotic. In that case, their milk is taken off the line and NOT used until they are deemed healthy and antibiotic free. We never give our cows antibiotics as a preventative method nor do they ever receive growth hormones of any kind!

Our animals are raised completely on grass with no "grain finishing.”

Our lambs range on pasture with their mothers, grazing on fragrant wild grasses and continuing to drink their mother’s milk (for the first few months), as nature intended.

Our pigs are on pasture all day, everyday. We make every effort to ensure that they have access to greens and veggies at all times.

Our turkeys are on pasture all day, everyday. They roam across acres, roosting in trees and looking for tasty treats. They have access to greens and bugs at all times, just as they would in the wild.

 

Tell Me More About the Dairy & Eggs You Sell:

Our Jersey dairy cows roam the pastures of Carlton Farms 365 days per year. In addition to the grass that they harvest from the pasture, our cows also eat grass that we have harvested from our farm in the form of hay that has not been sprayed with pesticides or herbicides. To get the girls into the milking stall, we entice them in with a scoop of feed (about 5 pounds per day).

Our Jersey cows have A2 genetics.

No, it is raw milk. Nothing is ever added to the milk and nothing is taken away from the milk.

It is illegal to sell raw milk in the state of Georgia with the exception of pet milk.

The state of Georgia doesn’t require raw pet milk to be dated. With that said, we milk our cows twice per day, bottle it and by early the next morning that milk will be out for delivery for you to enjoy.

The ideal for raw pet milk storage is to store milk between 35 and 37 degrees F.

This means that your milk cannot get above 37 degrees F, even in your car on your short drive home from the pick-up or drop-off location in 95-degree summer heat. It is vital to use coolers and ice packs, (all the time) especially in the summer months. Also, don’t run any additional errands with milk in your car.

After you get your milk home:

  •   Check temp of fridge; should be 37 degrees or below, optimal temperature is 36.
  •   Store milk in the coldest part of the fridge.
  •   Never store your milk on the door.
  •   May need to place ice packs next to milk in fridge if having spoiling problems, especially for the milk that will be stored the longest.
  •   Promptly return milk to refrigerator after using.
Milk should still taste good after 7-10 days, but most of my customers can get two weeks if they keep the milk really cold.

Yes, it can be frozen.

Most people freeze in the jug that the milk comes in as this is easier.  If you do that, take out about a cup of milk before freezing.

Thawing:  

The best way to thaw the milk is to place it on the countertop and wrap a towel around it.  You will want to shake it frequently to minimize the small pieces of butterfat.  Those small pieces of butterfat are an unavoidable part of frozen/thawed milk.  You can minimize them but you will never eliminate them.

Frozen milk is good in the freezer for a couple of months, and once thawed the shelf life will be about the same as normal (10 days give or take).

 

Our cows receive antibiotics only when they are sick and in need of an antibiotic. In that case, their milk is taken off the line and NOT used until they are deemed healthy and antibiotic free. We never give our cows antibiotics as a preventative method nor do they ever receive growth hormones of any kind!

 

Tell Me More About The Vegetables You Sell:

Produce is picked from the field the day before we deliver the produce to you. We order only what we need for each week.

All of the vegetable farms are within 100 miles of our delivery area. We depend on our network of farmers to supply us with seasonal, yet diverse produce.
All of our produce is organically grown. We strive to choose only organically grown or certified organic produce from as close to home as possible. However, sometimes we are unable to find a local AND organic option, and in that event we may choose to offer a pesticide-free local product from a farmer that uses integrated pest management on their crops.

If you and your household really love fresh, delicious veggies, then this box will feed 1 to 2 people for a week. If your Veggie Box is acting primarily as a supplement to a grocery trip each week, then the box may feed up to four or five people.

No. The box is pre-packed, but the contents will change each week as the season changes. Your box may contain items with which you are unfamiliar. We hope that this helps introduce you to new vegetables and that you enjoy the challenge of finishing them each week.

The contents will change each week as the season progresses.

These are some of the vegetables that you will enjoy throughout the seasons.  

  • Spring: apples, arugula, beets, bok choy, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, kale, kohlrabi, lettuce, green onions, radishes, snow peas, spinach, strawberries, swiss chard, turnips, escarole, basil, parsley, tomatoes, salad mix, cilantro

Delivery

You will recieve your home delivery order in an insulated cooler with reusable ice packs, nestled within a box to ensure your products are safe from the elements. There is a $7.00 deposit fee for this, that will be returned to you when the cooler, ice packs & box is returned to us. All you need to do is leave all items outside when you are expecting your next delivery or return it at the farm or one of our mobile market locations.

Our insulated coolers are packed with ice to ensure your products are safe weather you are home or not for delivery. The coolers are then packed into boxes to insulate well against the elements. Please remember to always leave your empty coolers, ice pack & box out for us to pick up on the following delivery as we reuse them. When we receive your cooler, ice pack & box we will credit your account the deposit fee, if you choose to keep them it will result in you forfeiting your deposit.
