We take raising livestock very seriously and have a deep respect for every animal that spends time on our farm, and we pasture-raise all of our animals. We proudly partner with other local farms that share our belief-system in the way we farm and take care of our animals to bring you pasture-raised beef and pork to compliment our farm’s offerings.
Our conscious carnivore package consists of 5 boxes, with delivery within Ridgefield, Danbury and North Salem. The boxes are ready between late June and December, reflecting the bounty of the farming year. Each box will have a selection of seasonal meat that will include two varieties of either chicken, pork, beef, lamb or rabbit. NEW THIS YEAR, the boxes will also have a couple ingredients to pair with the meat and suggested cooking method. Like many CSAs, you have the opportunity to try new cuts and meats you might not try otherwise and we assure you, you will not be disappointed!
Boxes are typically enough for 1-2 meals for a family of 4.
A note about rabbit: We know that some of you may have never tried rabbit before. Please give this a go. You will be pleasantly surprised. We raise two heritage breeds with different culinary virtues. Our farm raises rabbits as we truly believe they leave a smaller environmental impact as well as provide a lean, delicious meat reflecting the heritage of many cultures around the world. In fact, we find that our customers are most creative with the wonderful stews they make with rabbit (ask us for suggestions or our Hassenpfeffer recipe).
ALSO NEW THIS YEAR: Part of your CSA there will be two dates offered (one in summer and one in fall, we will email you the dates once you have signed up for your share) where CSA members can join us on a private tour of the farm and learn about the seasonal cycles of a working livestock farm.
