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.

Can I use my Credit Card to pay for my CSA?
Yes we take most major credit cards, cash, and debit cards. You can also sign up for automatic CSA payment plans on our website
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 memberships?
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 membership refund.
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.
