Title: Keegan Wilder fundraiser #9 Idyllwoode Farms PORK!!!
Post by: jackelope on January 02, 2018, 12:05:45 PM
We are rolling out auction #9 for Keegan.  Keep on pulling together for this kid and his family and let's do what we can to lighten their load a little. All of you have done an amazing job of helping these folks through a tough time.

If you haven't heard Keegan's story, here is a bit of background from Karl Blanchard

 "Keegan Wilder is not your typical 7th grader.  He's a hardened mountain mule deer hunter.  Though he's a little small in stature,  he has the heart of a lion and is just as fierce!  He had been feeling a faint pain for a few months but nothing that would have caused concern.  Almost felt like a pulled muscle.  He asked to be taken into the urgent care because he was having a hard time breathing without any pain.  He was immediately referred to Seattle Children's where the family was given the devasting news after several blood tests, xray, and ultrasounds that he indeed had cancer.  The mass is quite large behind his rib cage growing towards his lung.  He had surgery within one day where they biopsied the mass to determine the exact kind of cancer (so they know what appropriate treatment to provide for that type of cancer) and also placed a port for his chemotherapy.

He recently had to have his port moved which involved a second surgery.  He is having a difficult time keeping weight on so a feeding tube has been placed to help him get the calories he needs. 

Keegan is the toughest kid you will ever meet.  From the age of 5 he has been chasing his dad and I into some of the toughest mule deer country the west has to offer.  His first deer at age 10 was over 7 miles into the Idaho backcountry.  Even though he is on round 5 of chemo and very weak, he is always smiling. 

Keegan and family still have a tough road ahead of them and can use our support.  Life can be so cruel and no child should ever have to go through what Keegan has.  Let's help make this dark time a little brighter."

Auction #8 is a half of a hog from Whitpirate who owns and operates Idyllwoode Farms in Duvall, WA. Here's the info straight from him:
@Whitpirate

Idyllwoode Farms located in Duvall.  We feed a locally sourced ration and raise pigs on pasture and fresh ground local grains that we grind on the farm.  Current batch is no corn, no soy, heritage Tamworth and Berk/York cross.  The auction half will be processed and smoked bacon and ham will be done by Del Fox Meats in Stanwood.  I will deliver the auction winner half wherever they are in the state.  Our current customers pay 550/half delivered for our pork but I do offer a 50.00 Hunt-WA discount.  Several members have purchased in the past.  I'll take care of all processing/curing/butcher/delivery fees and 100% of the bid will go to the Keegan fund.  Let's make this a good one.


Retail value is $550.00

Here's a few pics in chronological order that'll make you hungry.

So if I bid and then outbid myself with my trademarked bidding tactics, I could end up with an entire pig? You mean my freezer might be full and no tags are needed? Oh boy this is tempting.

Reminder this is packaged and processed, cured and smoked and delivered to your door. (WA state only, if you live in ID or OR you'd need to meet me inside WA for this to work).  Next processing date is end of Feb/early March so you'd have a summer of BBQ with solid well-raised and cared for meat and supporting a family that is in a fight no one deserves to be in.  Custom cutting (extra thick pork chops etc....) all on the table to the winning bid.
