Our winter meat CSA runs in the winter months in two sessions, September-December and January-April. To be added to the email list to learn when signups open for each session, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We offer two versions of our meat CSA. Our Winter Meat CSA, and a new "Meat Share" available during the regular Farm season. See below to learn more
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 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.

WINTER MEAT CSA STRUCTURE Currently, we offer Grass-finished Beef, Grass-Fed Chicken and Pastured Pork The Fall/Winter MEAT CSA runs in 4-month increments, with delivery on a monthly basis. Members agree to pay for the full 4-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.
