COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE
Want a delicious box of locally grown, and ethically raised pork and lamb each month? Join the CSA now!
What is CSA?
CSA is a model of agriculture that aims to connect the consumer and the farmer more closely. This is done by offering shares into the farm's harvest for a season or for a year. By purchasing shares at the beginning of the season, the consumer then receives a percentage of the harvest weekly, fortnightly, or monthly.
To strengthen locally based agriculture
To deeply connect consumers and producers (know how and where your food is grown)
To share the risks and rewards of farming with the community
To provide an alternative to industrial agriculture and supermarket chains
To supply ethical and delicious food
There are four share options to choose from depending on your needs as an individual, couple, or group.
Half Share - 1.25kg of pork
Small Share - 2.5kg of pork
Medium Share - 5 kg of pork
Large Share - 10kg of pork
Plus you can add an additional 2kg of lamb to any share
The price for each share will depend on if you choose to pay monthly or pay the full amount up front and receive a discount.
As we believe that none of the animal should be wasted, each box will contain a variety of cuts from a single animal, from roasts and chops, to bacon and hocks. Eating the whole animal is an important step in making meat more sustainable.
What you receive will vary throughout the season, although we can't guarantee you will receive your favourite item each month, we can ensure you don't receive something you won't eat. Just let us know what you don't like in the signup form.
