What is a CSA?

A Community Supported Agriculture program, or CSA, is a relationship between farmers and a community of members, or shareholders, where the shareholders receive their food directly from the farmers, and provide the farmers with direct financing through advance purchase of products delivered over the harvest season.  Shareholders contribute to the financial health of independent, sustainable farms, and gain a personal connection to the food, the land on which it was raised, and the people who cared for it.

 

Meat CSA Shares:


  • Pork Share:
  • 1/4 Pork distributed over 6 deliveries (approx. 5 lbs. of pork per delivery). Pigs are born and raised on Crown S Ranch’s organic pastures and supplemented with organic feed grown and milled by Crown S Ranch. Our Pork is flash frozen for freshness.

  • Beef Share:
  • 1/8 Beef distributed over 6 deliveries (approx. 8 lbs. beef each delivery). Our Cattle are a beautiful, healthy, Angus-Limousin cross. They are grass-fed and finished, rotationally grazed on organic pastures every 18 to 24 hours. In the winter months the cattle eat organic alfalfa hay produced by Crown S Ranch. Our Beef is dry aged to perfection for 14 to 21 days then flash frozen for freshness.

  • Lamb Share: 
  • 1/2 Lamb distributed over 6 deliveries (approx. 3 lbs. of lamb per delivery). Our Lambs are a beautiful, healthy, Katahdin-Dorper cross. They are grass-fed and finished, rotationally grazed on organic pastures. In the winter months the lambs eat organic alfalfa hay produced by Crown S Ranch. Our Lamb is flash frozen for freshness.

  • Chicken Share: 
  • One chicken each delivery for six deliveries (approx. 4#). Chickens are raised on Crown S Ranch’s organic pastures and supplemented with organic feed grown and milled by Crown S Ranch. Our Chickens are flash frozen for freshness.

  • Egg Share: 
  • One dozen Organic Eggs each delivery for six deliveries. Eggs come in a variety of colors and sizes. Our chickens live on organic pastures and their yolks change with the seasons as the pasture greens changes through the year. Young chickens lay small eggs while older chickens lay larger eggs. The egg color depends on the breed of chicken. Our pastured laying hen's diet is supplemented with organic feed grown and milled by Crown S Ranch.   We have closed the cycle on our chickens, thus we incubate our own laying hens.
