Our very popular meat CSA is the core of our farm business and the members of our CSA are an integral part of our farm family. In addition to wonderful meat each month, our members often enjoy farm visits, access to products not for sale to the public, and a newsletter of monthly updates of farm activities and great recipes.
Our CSA is for people who love animals and happen to eat meat, too. Haley's Homestead Meat CSA provides an excellent way for you to have a steady supply of meat that you know has been raised humanely and without hormones or antibiotics. By joining us, you receive a share of the meat raised on our farm each month.
Your share will be a mix of meat types and cuts that will vary with the seasons...that's the beauty of eating local and in season. The box has a guaranteed amount of meat from our several species of livestock: beef, pork, sheep and goat, rabbit and poultry (chicken, turkey, quail, pheasant, chukar, and duck).
By joining our Meat CSA you are supporting our family farm and ensuring that each month, you receive an amazing array of the best possible meats and eggs from animals that are raised the right way: with access to wide open spaces and free from hormones and antibiotics.
What will you get each month?
- 40% beef - 8 lbs. (2lb premium cuts, 6lb everyday use cuts)
- 30% pork - 6 lbs. (1.5lb premium cuts, 4.5lb everyday use cuts)
- 20% chicken - 4 lbs
- 10% specialty meats - 2 lbs.
A half share is for 10 lbs. of meat and generally will contain the following:
- 40% beef - 4 lbs. (1 lb premium cuts, 3 lb everyday use cuts)
- 30% pork - 3 lbs. (3/4 lb premium cuts, 2 1/4 lb everyday use cuts)
- 20% chicken - 2 lbs
- 10% specialty meats - 1 lbs.
You will not receive meat from every species each month, but you will receive at least 20 lbs. per share (10 lbs. per half share) in a variety of cuts from each of four categories: beef, pork, chicken, and specialty meats. Specialty meats include rabbit, lamb, goat, and all other poultry. If you would prefer not to receive meat from a particular species we will gladly exempt one species from your CSA share.
The logistics of the CSA
Members sign a contract for a 6-month share with a deposit of $50. The deposit will be put towards the balance of the last month’s delivery. Should the member decide to terminate the contract before the six-month period is over, the deposit will be forfeited.
Each month’s balance is due 24 hours before the scheduled delivery time. If your payment is not made on time, you will miss that months delivery and forfeit your deposit. You will be sent an email reminder notifying you of upcoming deliveries so you can add items to your order and pay your balance. You can also pay for your full 6-month contract up-front to receive a discount on your shares.
How much does it cost?
Add-on Items for monthly shares can include additional meat (specified species and cuts when available, at retail price), eggs, flowers (in season), fruits and vegetables (in season), and handmade artisan goods from our storefront. They can also include special orders for holiday meals or special occasions. If you are interested in special orders for the holidays, order well in advance because we sell out quickly!
