About the Meat CSA: CSA subscribers can opt to become “working members,” committing to perform three hours of farm work each week. Chicken, turkeys, pigs, lambs and goats are raised on the property and are given the chance to graze on pastures. Animals’ diets are supplemented with certified organic feed. The pigs, goats, and sheep are sold in the spring (order by mid-April) and sold by whole, half and quarter meat packages. Chickens and turkeys can be ordered through June.
