We’ll be placing our annual order with Fedco Trees on January 16 and Fedco Seeds on February 5. You are welcome to order with us and receive whatever volume discount we qualify for. Last year everybody got 20% off! The deadline for tree orders is January 15, seed order deadline February 3. Please let me know as soon as possible if you’re planning to participate.
To order, use the Contact Us link and I will send you the instructions to set up your order through the Fedco website. CSA members who want to pay for their order when they pick up their February box can do so by arranging it in advance.
Trees must be picked up when they arrive (usually in April, or a similarly appropriate time of year). Seeds can be picked up in February when they arrive.
If you aren’t familiar with them, Fedco is a worker-owned cooperative that provides the highest quality and most affordable heirloom, organic, biodynamic, non-GMO, and non-proprietary seeds and plants for cold climates (they’re in Maine). Check out their offerings at fedcoseeds.com. They offer discounts for group orders, which will be shipped to the farm.
We will be offering a local cheese add-on option to the CSA. A rotating selection of beautiful cheeses from Jasper Hill can be added to your meat share at a deep discount!
Choose your Cheese Share size:
- Half Cheese Share: $10/month
- Full Cheese Share: $20/month
The cheeses will be marked down significantly from retail (close to or at wholesale prices). Members will have the option of ordering extra. Choose either size, regardless of your meat share size.
There is a box to choose this option on the sign up form, or you can let us know by contacting us! Please specify whether you want the half or whole cheese share ($10 or $20).

We are exploring the possibility of adding a local cheese option to our CSA for this year. If this sounds like something you’d like, please let us know!

Please note: We have put aside a number of prime cuts of lamb for Pesach, as we’ve noticed in past years that local farms do not seem to make an effort to serve our sizable Jewish community for important holidays. However, our meat is not kosher for Pesach. It is the highest quality, most ethically raised treyf meat available, and so is appropriate for members of the Jewish community who do not keep kosher.

Bad news for procrastinators! This year’s CSA is almost sold out. Sample shares are sold out, and there are only 1 or 2 shares left in the other sizes. Get in touch soon if you’re planning to sign up!
Get a whole hog’s worth of rotationally-grazed pastured heritage pork at butcher weight, raised with the highest ethical standards at our small family farm. They are out of our best Tamworth sow crossed with an award-winning performance Berkshire boar. Pastured Tamworth x Berkshire produces a rich, dark, marbled pork that is the slow food gourmet standard. It is delicious.
How it Works
You choose your cuts, sausage flavors, smoking, etc. and we handle delivery to the USDA butcher. When your pig is ready, you pick it up at the farm in boxes of convenient shrink-wrapped cuts, labeled and weighed and ready for your freezer.
How Much Does it Cost, and How Much Meat is it?
$5 per pound based on hanging weight. Price includes the butcher costs but smoking is extra. Discount available for 2 animals.
Our average hanging weight is 160 lbs, which yields a total of about 138 lbs of meat to take home, including about 110 lbs of typical cuts plus the atypical cuts or sausage, for a final average price of $5.79 per pound–a deep discount from retail! Consider splitting one with a friend if it’s too much meat for your household.
$150 deposit required with reservation, payable by check, cash in person, or Paypal/credit card (with 3% Paypal fee). Balance is due prior to pick up. Please Contact Us to reserve–only a few animals are available!
We are now accepting members for our 2016 Winter Meat CSA! All the info can be found under the “Winter Meat CSA” menu on this website, as well as the sign up form.
