CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. When you join, you are prepaying for shares of our farm's production. Both farmers and consumers benefit from a CSA. CSA consumers are guaranteed to get their meat first--before any sales on-farm, at farmers' markets, or through delivery orders. The CSA benefits farmers by partially covering the cost of raising the animals upfront with its prepaid shares.
Each share in the CSA is $340 and pays for 15 pounds of meat each month for three months. New CSA members will be charged a one-time startup fee of $26, covering the transportation and delivery of the meat in insulated totes. Members can pick up their monthly meat supply at one of our delivery points or at the farm itself. The 15 pounds will be divided between chicken, beef, and pork--5 pounds of each. We also offer a kosher option with 10 pounds of chicken and 5 pounds of beef (our meat is not kosher certified--this is just the name of the package). For an additional $55, CSA members can add 4 dozen eggs each month to their meat order. CSA members may also add a 1/2 egg share (2 dozen eggs per month) for $27.50 per month.
CSA members do not choose the specific meats in the monthly package. We will prepare your 15 pounds of meat for you, selecting from the list of products below. Keep in mind that not all of our products are available through the CSA, but any items not on the list can be ordered ahead of time and paid for at your CSA pick-up time.
To become a CSA member, contact Eric or Samantha via email or call 815-472-2934 to get started. We will provide all the information you need and answer any questions you may have. Once we have signed you up as a CSA Member, you pay via PayPal, mail a check, or pay at one of our farmers markets. New CSA customers should not pay until membership and availability have been confirmed.
