Member’s Choice of Organic Meats

10 days before pickup or delivery, each member can email or let us know at the farm their choice of  meats they want in the “choice” part of the meat CSA. Every box gets “basic” cuts of grass fed / pasture raised beef, free range chicken and pastured pork. Then the “choice” part of the meat CSA is up to each member to decide what they’d like from the choices on the lists.

 

Membership periods

Each Membership period is four months long. Feel free to join in the middle of a membership period for a prorated fee. We may welcome new members to our CSA program in the middle of a term if there is extra space in that terms perios

What is a Meat CSA?

What is a Meat CSA? CSA = Community Supported Agriculture. It's a partnership with a trusted farmer. The farmer focuses on producing and providing high quality, organically and naturally raised meats like free range chicken, pastured pork and grass fed / pasture raised beef. 

 

The CSA members support the local farmer helping them to provide the products that members want like grass fed / pasture raised beef, pastured pork and free range chicken. By purchasing a meat CSA, the farmer knows exactly how many animals to raise instead of guessing. For the meat CSA member, this means they will be priority over any other customers at the farm.

 

We provide 4-month meat CSA “seasons”. This means we offer each membership for a 4-month term in case a member is going on holiday or has a change in circumstances. Members can sign up for the next 4-month “season” in advance so their meat CSA remains continuous. No running out of delicious beef, free range chicken or pastured pork again!

FAQs about Meat CSA

How many people can each meat share size feed?

Generally:
Box #1 is good for 1-3 people
Box #2 for 3 or more people

Can I choose different selections each month or is it the same each month?

Every month you can choose whatever you want for your choices, in fact we encourage this so you get to try all the yummy meat we have to offer. 

 

Do members pick up or does Norton Farms deliver?

Both! We have a pick up location at our farm. Each meat CSA member selects either to pick up on the 1st or 3rd Saturday of each month. We also provide  meat DELIVERY to any address in Ontario for only $45 shippng fee for Box #1 and #2 It’s a great way to buy organic meat online.

When can I pick up my monthly meat boxes at the farm?

1st or 3rd Saturday of the month

 

Can I use my Credit Card to pay for my CSA?

Because this is an already discounted program with a emphasis on community involvement we can not afford to absorb the fees credit cards charge and still give this type of amazing price

 

Can we choose what’s in our share?

Absolutely! We have set each box to have a “basic” package that everyone gets. After that, we will provide you with choice cuts of pastured pork, free range chicken or pasture raised beef. We call this the “choice” part of the meat CSA so each member can pick what’s best for them and their family.

 

What cuts of meat does the meat CSA have?

Most of our meat cuts are pretty standard, like steak. If there is a cut that’s new to you, an online search will give you plenty of great recipes. Who knows? They might even become family favourites!

 

What if there is too much for my family to eat each month? or

I’m a single person, and I want a meat CSA membership. What can you do for me?

The meat will last for many months in a freezer. It doesn’t need to be eaten all in one month. We are also able to move our members to a smaller box. All we need is at least 2 week’s notice.

 

Some of our members split their meat CSA share with friends or family members who want free range chicken, pastured pork or grass fed beef but don’t eat enough for a full share. By buying in bulk, it’s a lot cheaper than buying each cut of meat individually.

 

We’re going on holiday, what about our meat CSA?

Enjoy your time away!  We can switch a delivery to a family member, neighbour or friend during your vacation. You can have them stock up your freezer or see if they’d like to try your delicious grass fed / pasture raised beef, organic chicken or pastured pork.

 

Does Norton Farms offer refunds on deposits?

We would love to offer this service but the money from the meat CSA memberships goes to buying the animals, looking after them and keeping them healthy and happy. So this means no deposit refund.

 

Can I transfer my meat CSA membership?

We will happily transfer a membership to someone else if you can find someone who wants your share.

 

Do you ship outside of Ontario?

At this time, we only ship in Ontario. This is how we can provide SHIPPING to any address in Ontario.
