CSA members buy a “share” of the farm’s production for a season. Shareholders receive a portion of the harvest as the season progresses. It can be a great way to connect with and support local farms and farmers!
Here’s How It Works:
Note: On some weeks, you will have the ability to choose between similar crops when we have an abundance (for example: Pick 1 bunch of kale or chard, pick 1 delicata squash or butternut).
Here’s How It Works:
Yes, absolutely! You are welcome to purchase the Vegetable or Meat CSA, or both. If you would like eggs, you can purchase in our Farm Store during your share pickup.
The CSA model is meant to alleviate start-up costs for the farmer at the beginning of the growing season. Paying up front helps offset these costs for the farmers while providing you with the first selection of our quality products. Therefore, payments are received in full when signing up for your CSA share.
Vegetable CSA shares can be picked up in the Farm Store, located on the Little River Campus next to our Livestock Education Barn. Vegetable CSA members can choose their produce from the display. Meat will be found in a CSA member-only freezer in the Livestock Education Barn (details will be sent to members prior to pickup). Eggs are available for purchase in the Farm Store.
Yes, please bring a bag for your Vegetable share. Meat shares will be bundled in burlap bags, but be sure to bring back your burlap bag from the previous month’s pickup each time.
No, we have a limited production and want to ensure that all CSA members receive their weekly supply. We ask that you take the items indicated each week (each month for the Meat CSA). If there’s an item that you do not want, you are not required to take it with you.
We will make exceptions for any religious needs for the Meat CSA.
Sorry, this will not be possible. You are welcome to transfer your share to a neighbor, family member, or friend for the week that you are gone.
Fear not! Any products in short supply will be set aside for CSA members only. Our farmers restock Farm Store produce daily.
No problem! Send us an email so we know which neighbor, family member or friend is picking up your share.
Please email us and we will coordinate your pick up.
Members can expect to receive $26 worth of produce every week. For some members, $26 worth of produce a week is only enough to supplement the vegetables their family needs to eat on a weekly basis. Some of our members decide to buy 2 shares in order to feed a larger family.
Each month you will receive a 15 lb. selection of meat (chicken, beef, and pork) based on our inventory.
Our meat is raised organically, however it is not certified organic by the USDA.
The livestock at Wolfe’s Neck Center are raised in a low stress, organic manner. They are given the best treatment and closely monitored everyday to ensure everyone is healthy and happy.
During the late spring, summer, and early fall the livestock are intensively rotated through our pastures where they enjoy luscious green forage. They are also given a high quality organic grain. During the winter the animals are fed high quality, organic hay and baleage bales along with the organic grain.
Our meat is processed at three local processors:
