CSA Farm Subscription
Simply a great way to eat Healthy and Delicious Meats and Vegetables, help your food budget go further and it all comes from a family farm in your community!
Every year we are asked by people “How can we invest in the farm?” “How can we help you grow our food” “What would really make a difference” “Can you help me make choices on what to cook?”
The CSA option started many years ago as basically a meat packages customers picked up each month. Some years we had a set menu what was in the package each time and some years we tried to have more options to choose from. Then we decided to offer a new option that not just feeds our customers but saves them some money and gives our farm needed financial boosts to help with operating expenses.
It has evolved in a very free choice, very simple and popular commitment with our customers. Each year it makes a real difference in the farm success.
YOU do NOT have to join the CSA to buy from us- ever. We sell everything directly to customers all year round.
The CSA is a financial commitment that is not for everyone all the time. You do NOT have to be a member to buy any of our products from us- ever. All our products are available directly to everyone year round. The CSA can save you money while making a real difference here at the farm.
2019 is going to be a great year to join our CSA Farm Subscription. We’ve improved our bonus to make it an easier and better way for you and your family to eat well this year.
You make the financial commitment of $500 (or higher) and you get an extra 15% bonus on our CSA account for farm food product purchases.
Use that balance any time, for any of our farm FOOD products- Meats, Vegetables, Maple Syrup, Popcorn, ect.. in any amount, ALL YEAR for a year. You join anytime of year and your balance is good for 1 year!
You will likely make more than $500 in purchases- most members do buy more than that in a year. As your balance gets lower you simply renew you membership before it runs out.
You can renew at the minimum of $300-$499 amount and receive a 5% bonus only. Renew at $500 or more you get that 15% bonus again. That new balance is used all year for 365 days.
If you make a purchase for over the amount of your balance, we debit your CSA card for the amount on it and you pay the rest of the balance. Then renewal payment can be made starting at minimum of $300 as previously stated.
There are NO pickup dates. You simply shop with us when you need items.
You shop for what you want from what we have in stock and in any amount. Use your account on any sale items and Meat Packs too.
You get a bright green debit card to be scanned when making purchases, you then get an email or text about your purchase amount and remaining balance.
What our products are:
Beef, Pork- are available usually year round. At times some cuts may be sold out but we still have a good selection of cuts year round.
Vegetables- mostly seasonal. Our vegetable production is slowly expanding each year and is not like the other Vegetable CSA options- we grow popular items more seasonally. This CSA compliments if you have your own garden, we may grow things you don’t and also works with a vegetable CSA for when you want some different items and of course when you need meat!
Maple Syrup & Popcorn- year round
What is not part of the CSA
Non-food items that have NYS tax applied like our soaps, sprays, woodworking, blacksmithing and so on.
Beef wholesale orders- like 1/4, 1/2 and whole beef. Pork Wholesale- 1/2 and whole Pork. These are already discounted and not part of the CSA. If you have a CSA account and decide to buy one of the wholesale options your CSA balance is not transferable to that purchase.
Coupons and online discount offers codes can NOT be used with CSA account purchases.
