Budget Meat Boxes Available

Did you miss out on our whole animal grass fed beef or a pastured pork shares for lack of space or cash? Now is your chance to fix that with one of our budget meat boxes. Get all the nutrition and flavor of local sustainably raised meat without the pricier cuts.

We ended up the season with an excess of ground beef and ham slices so we're offering box fulls of each at a reduced price. Now everyone can fill their freezers for the winter with affordable, superior protein.

Our discount ground beef box will be a one time delivery of 20 pounds of antibiotic free 100% grass fed ground beef in 1 pound packages. They cost $107 and will be delivered to your CSA pickup location on the final week of the CSA. Read more about our beef.


Our discount ham steak box is also a one time delivery of 20 pounds of nitrate free ham steaks from pastured pigs fed GMO free grain. The ham steaks weigh between 1 and 2 pounds each. They cost $107 and will be delivered to your CSA pickup location on the final week of the CSA. Read more about our pork.

Want to fill in with a little more luxury? We're also offering a few premium steak boxes with 24 steaks weighing at least 16 pounds for $200. You'll get 4 each of round steak, loin rib steak, loin T-bone, sirloin steak, strip steak, and tenderloin steak.

And of course we have our pastured turkeys and pastured chickens (which we are now selling single boxes of 3 roaster chickens for $60.50).


If you're not a CSA member just email us and we'll set your order up for you.
