4 Ever Moore Farm Chicken CSA 2017

We are excited to announce we will be offering a Chicken CSA for the 2017 season! This will allow you to have our pastured, non-gmo chicken all season long! The shares can be purchased in full or half shares. New this year, we have added options to add eggs and or vegetables to our CSA.

We are happy to have partnered with a neighboring farm to offer a vegetable CSA add on to our CSA. The Old Familiar Farm follows the same principles that we do and only offers 100% chemical free fruits and vegetables using holistic growing practices. http://www.facebook.com/the oldfamiliarhomestead/

What is a CSA?

CSA stands for community supported agriculture. CSA is a food production and distribution system that directly connects farmers and consumers. In short: people buy “shares” of a farm’s harvest in advance and then receive a portion of the crops or meat as they’re harvested.

Benefits of a CSA

TO THE FARMER:

We benefit by earning early important capital that helps us to cover the costs of raising the chickens through out the season. Plus we are guaranteed an outlet for the chickens we grow.

TO THE CONSUMER:

You benefit by locking in on the 4.25 pound price per bird. This means overall saving through the course of the season.

You don’t have to worry about storage issues if you don’t own an extra freezer. We store them for you.

You are guaranteed access to local, non-gmo, full flavored chickens all season long!

When and how many chicken do you get?
