Ground Meats: any combination of ground beef, ground pork, or ground lamb
Roasting/Braising: pork roast or beef roast
Easy Meal Cuts: stew meat, stir fry, pork chops, steaks, etc. The cuts that are easy to defrost in one day and cook as is. Other than the extra large, this could also include pork sausage links.
Pork Sausage: several flavors available, if you have allergen concerns please let us know and we will adjust flavors accordingly (ex: fresh kielbasa contains dextrose, if you are allergic or do not want it we will put other flavors in your box)
Boxes will vary in terms of content, weight and value each month, but each month represents a savings (at least 5%) vs. buying all of the cuts individually. Meats will vary seasonally as well--for example chicken is available May through December and boxes will contain more beef in the winter. Summer boxes will contain lots of items that are great for grilling. Due to the smaller nature of sheep and limited availability of lamb, boxes will have more beef, chicken and pork than lamb. Boxes include items like lamb sausage and ground lamb regularly. Customers can opt out of lamb if they do not want to receive any.
Packaging: while the weights seem very specific, our meat is pre-packaged at the USDA butcher facility and so not every package weighs the same. Examples: boneless chops and steaks are two per pack and individually weigh anywhere from 6-8 oz. Bone-in chops and steaks are 14-16 oz. Bacon is thick sliced and most packs are 1 pound or more. Breakfast links are slightly less than 1 pound and have 12-13 links per pack on average.
CSA Members get a 5% discount on additional meats purchased during pick up days and first access to seasonal farm products. CSA members also get early access to reservations for farm tours and pasture walks.
How it works:
Pickup is monthly: members pick up on Saturdays, once you sign up you will be assigned either the first half of the month or the second (this depends on your requested time and when you sign up)
Pick up is on farm on Muddy Creek Road in West River, MD 20778
If you can't make it one Saturday there will be a makeup day each month or we can work with you to find a time that works
Pickup time is 10am to 12pm (unless you've scheduled a different time). Bring a cooler or grocery bag to take your meat home in.
Meats come frozen and vacuum wrapped
All beef is dry aged, bacon and ham are wood smoked and no artificial flavors are used in the sausage seasonings
