CSA stands for community supported agriculture and that is exactly what it is. You buy directly from our farm which allows us to raise the best quality food that is good for your health and the health of our land and community.
Our Meat CSA works like this: You sign up for the different shares you want each CSA season which will specify what type of meat, how much, and where you will pickup your monthly share. You can get 1 share, multiple of the same kind, or multiple shares. In each share you will get a wide variety of different frozen cuts at a discounted price from the normal retail price. The price of each share will vary by season due to the length of the CSA and what cuts we have available, but you can count on a variety of standard cuts, higher end cuts, and more budget cuts to sample. We send out an email before each pickup with what is in your share, an update from the farm, and details on the pickup if anything has changed.
Our Egg and Shiitake shares are only during the summer season (Jun-Oct). For these, your pickup will be every 2 weeks so that your eggs and mushrooms are the freshest possible.
