Farm Raised Poultry, Beef and Pork

All of our animal feed (except our veggies) comes from Hiland Naturals, a NON-GMO project verified company!

Due to the overwhelming interest in our first ever meat  CSA, we have decided to continue with 3 more share sessions this year! With 6 bi-weekly pick ups for each share.

How our it works:

  • Like a typical veggie CSA you receive a share of our harvest, but instead of veggies you receive a variety of meats, eggs and other products raised on our farm.
  • Part of participating in a meat CSA is the educational value and experience of being an integral part of a local farm. It is important for members to understand that we are raising livestock for you. That one steer or pig can only be divided into so many chops, steaks and roasts. The meat CSA provides our member families with an experience that introduces them to often new and lesser-known cuts along with the more familiar steaks, hams and chops.
  • You can expect a monthly newsletter filled with info about the best way to prepare your cuts, how to get many meals out of one bird or roast, lots of recipes for rubs, pastes and various cooking methods.
  • For being a member, you automatically receive your share at discount off retail market value.
  • Session 2 Spring/ Early Summer begins the week of April 25th -July 4th
  • Session 3 Summer begins July 18th-September 26th
  • Session 4 Fall begins October 3rd-December 12th
  •  Pick-ups on Tuesday, Friday, or Saturday at our farm stand (delivery available to our Fairfield, New Haven, Norwalk, and Greenwich CSA drop off locations for an additional fee)
  • You do not need to be a veggie CSA member to sign up for the meat CSA

Beef

Our cows have derived from the Shelton’s Dairy milking herd. Our polutry_3
first beef cow on the farm was a young heifer born from a Hereford bull we used to breed the young Holstein heifers. Her Hereford traits earned her a place as our first beef cow. As the farm ceased to exist as a Dairy we slowly evolved into the position we are in now. The cows are pasture fed in the summer and fed our hay in the winter, along with all the mothers milk they need. When the cows wean the calves and we decide which are ready for slaughter, we bring them to another pasture where they are fed hay, extra veggies, sweet corn stalks and a small amount of GMO-free grain to help marble the meat for the best final product.  No hormones or antibiotics are needed raising our animals the natural way!
