CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It means that every month that you have a membership, we'll send you fresh cuts of meat.
CSA builds sustainable agriculture by ensuring we have a market for our meats and you have plates full of very fresh, very healthy, very humane dinners for months to come.
At present, we offer CSA membership to anyone living in the following states: NY, NJ, VT, NH, PA, MA, RI, DE, CT, MD, VA, WV, OH, ME and the District of Columbia.
Your share can be shipped to your residence, apartment, office, parents, etc!
If you live in an apartment please leave a note on your door to leave the box if you will not be home. It is your responsibility to contact us within 24 hours if your share has not arrived as scheduled.
That is OK! Just give us a call (315-347-4352) or send us an email to let us know and give us another week that would be good for us to ship your box. Please give us at least 24 hours notice if you can.
Yes, as long as the temperature of the meat is not above 50F, the meat is safe to eat.
All of the meat is shipped frozen and should arrive mostly frozen, however if there is a delay in delivery of your share and it thaws you can still eat the meat.
Just think of meat you bring home from the grocery store, you can just as easily place your cuts in your refrigerator or freezer and the great thing is: no freezer burn because our meat is cryopacked to keep air out!
Yes ... and No.
The beauty of a CSA is it gives us the funds we need to take care of the ranch on a day-to-day basis without having to go to a bank and paying interest! So if you can, please prepay the amount of your share, it really does help us a ton! However if you would like to join, we do accept a limited amount of installment payments on our shares, email us for details.
Yes, please remember that 'just stopping in' probably will catch us either out in the 'back 40' working on fence or in the meat room filling orders that needed to go out yesterday! We would love to have you visit, so just give us a call to make sure we will be around and available to give you a tour!
