is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community
Supported Agriculture. In this relationship
between consumer and farm family, the consumer
purchases a share of the current year’s
livestock, becoming a shareholder in the farm.
As a shareholder, the consumer secures a share
of the farm’s annual meat production while
enjoying many of the same benefits available
to the on-site farm family.
Why a CSA?
We all support causes and organizations that
we would like to have available to our futures
and the futures of our children, i.e. civic
organizations, churches, schools, and lobbies.
Today, family farmers and the locally produced
food that we all enjoy are at risk. Joining
a CSA is a win-win-win! You secure a quality
food supply for the year, you work with the
farmer to grow your food according to your values,
you add stability to the farm operation, and
insure future availability of your food.
We would like to think that we know and communicate
pretty well with our customers. A CSA takes
this relationship to the next level. We have
observed that there are certain people, you
and us included, who are looking for a greater
knowledge of and voice in how our food is grown.
A primary objective of our CSA will be to put
you in closer touch with our farm, our family,
and the food that we deliver. Last but not least,
the CSA is an interest community that can share
activities, recipes, conversation and good times.
The CSA provides customers
with the following:
* Convenience: to purchase
the equivalent of a “share” of a
whole animal, made up of an assortment of meat
types and cuts, without having to buy a whole
animal and a large freezer. Small, regular deliveries,
make eating locally easier. Receive cuts of
meat that are familiar and easy to use.
* Superior Quality: We aim
to provide our CSA customers with access to
the highest quality of food available in the
same time it takes as going through the drive-through
(well, almost). Our farming practices are all
our animals are pasture
raised and humanely treated. We are not Certified
Organic. In terms of production practices and
quality, we hold ourselves to standards as high
as the current Organic standards.
* Availability and consistency:
CSA members receive meat shares year round,
with a guaranteed quantity of meat delivered.
* Local food shopping ease:
An added advantage of the CSA is the ability
to purchase extras when members pick up their
share - fresh pastured eggs, natural homemade
cleaning products and made from scratch mixes
like pancake, brownie, and dressing mixes just
to name a few.
