Future Plans
Community Supported Agriculture
  • In 2014 we are going to start a CSA or Community Supported Agriculture. There will only be 50 shares available and our meat customers will have first offer.
  • For 25 years C.S.A. has become a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer.
  • Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of "shares" to the public. Typically the share consist of a box of vegetables, but other farm products may be  included. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a "membership" or a "subscription") and in return receive a box (bag, basket) of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season.
  • This arrangement creates several rewards for both the farmer and consumer.
  • We will have in 2015 an area to raise Berkshire pigs. This will balance out and be a value added product to our beef and vegetable C.S.A.
  • Berkshire pigs are a rare breed of pig originating from the English county of Berkshire. They are said to be "Britain's oldest pig breed" and are prized for juiciness, flavor and tenderness, is pink hued and heavily marbled.
  • Our existing customers will be offered our Berkshire Pork first.
