CSA stands for community-supported agriculture.
This partnership is mutually beneficial and rewarding method for you to directly connect with our farm.
Our CSA members commit up front to buy meat shares that assist our farm with the capital we need to bring our animals from our fields to your kitchen.
Shares in our meat CSA are available through different packages and pricing tiers and can be purchased for three, six or twelve month periods.
Shares are available for purchase year round, and we offer four different starting points: January, April, July and October. You can join our year round meat CSA anytime for a pro-rated price assuming we have shares available.
Shares are pre-assembled at the farm and distributed at the farm or at designated drop off locations once a month. Please see pick up schedule page.
Our farm offers humanely raised, certified organic, grass-fed and pasture-raised meats, eggs and poultry. We focus on breeds that are known for their gourmet qualities and slow growth. They are superior in flavor and texture, leaving you with a tremendous dining experience and optimal nutrition.
Our sustainable and holistic approach is essential to building healthy thriving soils, animals and people that creates a symbiotic relationship.
Our farm participates in the Vermont Farm Share Program. This program subsidizes CSA shares for our neighbors who otherwise could not afford to join our CSA. Through the program, NOFA-VT will match each dollar that our CSA raises to offer reduced rates to income eligible individuals and families. Your contributions are tax-deductable if you make checks payable to NOFA-VT. You can also click here to contribute online directly to NOFA. Make sure to write the name of our Farm in the Farm Share Designation box.
If you are in need of financial assistance, please ask us about the Vermont Farm Share Program. You may be eligible for a partially subsidized share.
Why Certified Organic?
Better health: Since organic food is not prepared using chemical fertilizers and pesticides, it does not contain any traces of these strong chemicals and might not affect the human body.
Better taste: People strongly believe that organic food tastes better than non organic food. The prominent reason for this belief is that it is produced using organic means of production. Further organic food is often sold locally resulting in availability of fresh produce in the market.
Environment safety: As harmful chemicals are not used in organic farming, there is minimal soil, air and water pollution; thus ensuring a safe world for future generations to live in.
