We are now offering our Tasty Meats CSA shares (Community Supported Agriculture), Start your CSA anytimeHere are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of "shares" to the public. Interested consumers purchase a share (aka a "membership" or a "subscription") and in return receive a box of meat every month. There are three sizes available; family size, regular size, and single size. This creates an arrangement that has benefits to both the consumer and farmer, here are just a few: West Wind Acres CSA can be started at any point, the term is 12 months. Consumer:
- know how your food is raised and build a relationship with the farmer
- get exposed to new cuts of meat, learning different ways to cook
- healthy foodFarmer:
- Receive payment earlier in the year to help cash flow
- Have opportunity to get to know the people who eat their food
Payments are divided into quarters: 25% due at signing (by paying first initial payment it becomes a contract that all shares will be paid by customer for the year) 25% due every 3 months.
Every month there will be a drop off point where meat can be picked up. At time of sign up you will be able to choose which drop off point you would like to go to.
*If meat is not picked up at drop point of specified day an appointment can be made to pick up at the farm within 7 days. Any time after that meat will be donated to a local food pantry
