This winter we will once again be offering CSA options for both farm fresh eggs and pasture-raised chicken. Since supplies of both eggs and chicken are limited, committing to our CSA is the best way to be guaranteed fresh eggs and chicken throughout the winter and early spring. Our winter CSA runs November – April and will provide members with fresh eggs on a weekly basis and pasture-raised chicken once a month. Here are all the details:
Eggs – The minimum commitment is one dozen eggs per week, to be picked up weekly. Eggs can be picked up here on the farm either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. On Saturdays eggs can be picked up at Glenbrook Shopping Center from 9am-10am each week. Our winter egg share is for 6 months and the cost is $20.50/dozen/month. A non-refundable deposit of $20.50/dozen (deposit will be applied to the cost of your April eggs) is required and you simply pay for your eggs at the beginning of each month when you pick up.
Chicken – Unlike our weekly egg shares, chickens are distributed the first week of each month and can be picked up here on the farm (Tuesday or Thursday, 2pm-5pm) or at Glenbrook Shopping Center (the first Saturday of the month, 9am-10am). When purchasing a chicken share, you are committing to purchase a fixed number of chickens each month from November through April. A non-refundable deposit of $15/chicken (deposit will be applied to the cost of your April chicken) is required and you will pay for your chicken each month when you pick up. Our chicken is currently priced at $4.29/lb and the birds average 3 ½ to 4 ½ lbs. Should you decide to drop out early, you would not have to pay for future months, but you would forfeit your deposit.
I know some of you may have additional questions before committing. If so, please feel free to call or email me and I’ll be happy to answer them.
