- CSA Stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Our members purchase a share and in return enjoy a certain amount of chicken from our family farm.
- We offer FULL and HALF shares. Full shares will receive one whole chicken with giblets (at least four pounds) every week and half shares will receive a whole chicken with giblets (at least four pounds) every other week during season.
- You choose which pickup location works best for you.
- We will share our favorite recipes and tips for cooking our chicken.
How It Works
- By joining our CSA you will receive high quality, healthy meat from your local farmer at a discounted price.
- Our chickens are moved daily onto fresh pasture and are supplemented with a NON GMO grain. While being outside, our chickens get to enjoy forage, fresh air, and juicy bugs. All of this makes a better chicken that is better for you.
- Compared to conventionally raised chickens, pasture raised chickens have 21% less total fat, 30% less saturated fat, and 28% fewer calories. Pasture raised chickens have essentially no fat in the breast meat, but have 50% more vitamin A and have significant levels of omega-3s, where conventional chickens have none.
- You have the opportunity to know exactly where your meat comes from, what it was fed, how it was handled and processed while supporting a family farm who cares about their animals.
