We are pleased to announce that we are taking orders for CSA Shares once again!
We have come up with a new CSA option that we feel will serve both you, the customer, and us, the farmer, better.
Earlier this year, we offered 6 month and 12 month CSA Shares where we delivered 10 lbs of meat per month. We found that with the busy summer months, many customers have had a hard time meeting us because of vacations etc... This resulted in several extra deliveries and created a logistical headache as we tried to keep track of who had received their order and who hadn't. It also meant many late nights for us sorting and weighing shares for each order. During one of these late nights, Hollie and I were discussing ways we could be more efficient so that we could feel comfortable with increasing our CSA Share membership. (It is frustrating for us to have customers on a wait list.) After bouncing some ideas around we finally came up with what we feel is a good solution.
Rather than deliver 10 lbs of meat each month, we will now deliver 30 lbs at once. 30 lbs is still small enough to fit in most freezers as it only takes up 1 cubic foot. It also means fewer deliveries to coordinate. This helps frees up your schedule and ours. Our goal is to keep CSA Shares in stock, so that when you run low on meat, it is readily available for you to order or at least receive within a month or so. While we can't guarantee this, we will work really hard towards it. Another advantage is since you are only buying 30 lbs (or 3 months by our previous model) you aren't tying up as much money at once. Our CSA Shares will also make nice gifts.
As we approach fall and winter, we will offer two different CSA Shares.
Pork Share: 30 lbs of Berkshire Pork of assorted cuts of chops, roasts, bacon, ground pork, ribs, and ham. Cuts come wrapped and packaged in portions small enough for two people.
Combo Share includes: 15 lbs of Berkshire Pork of assorted cuts of chops, roasts, bacon, ground pork, ribs, and ham. Cuts come wrapped and packaged in portions small enough for two people.
15 lbs of Grass Fed Beef of assorted cuts of steaks (Rib, T-Bone, Round, and Sirloin), roasts, ground beef, stew meat, and ribs. All beef is dry aged to perfection and cuts come wrapped and packaged in portions small enough for two people.
We hope that you will be happy with these new options and look forward to your order. Please visit the CSA Share page on our website to order. Orders will be delivered on October 2, 2010.
