Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) means our community invests in BARR FARMS to allow us to raise healthy animals on a sustainable scale, while caring for the land and each other. The CSA provides security to both community members and farmers by putting us in direct relationship with each other.
A MEAT CSA is a new concept where community members pay for a share of the animals harvested on our farm. We adapted the concept of a vegetable CSA where members pay in advance and receive a harvest of seasonal vegetables each week during the growing season.
MEAT CSA MEMBER BENEFITS
Members understand our meat is raised on a healthy, sustainable family farm.
Members receive specially selected cuts of meat.
Members enjoy 100% GRASS-FED beef that is marbled, lean and tasty.
Members know our meat contains NO antibiotics, steroids or hormones.
Members enjoy a DISCOUNT from the retail price.
MEAT CSA STRUCTURE Currently, we offer Grass-finished Beef, Grass-Fed Chicken and Pastured Pork The MEAT CSA runs in 3-month increments, with delivery on a monthly basis. Members agree to pay for the full 3 month session prior to first delivery.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The amount of each meat cut purchased will be a bit more or less depending on the size of the prepackaged cuts. FOR EXAMPLE, if you choose one 3.0 lb chicken each month, you may receive a 3.2 lb chicken one month and a 2.8 lb chicken the next month. We believe this CSA-style flexibility benefits both the farmer and member.
