YOUR RESPONSE REQUESTED PLEASE. If you have not already posted on Facebook, please post to comments if you are interested!
We are in negotiation with a local CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) to start weekly delivery to CFS of:
-fresh local, seasonal produce
-local cage free eggs
-fresh local pork, beef, chicken & bison meats
We will have an opportunity to make a very short term, 6 week commitment to any one or all of these categories with a beginning date of FEBRUARY 26TH 2015, to try out the farms and the service.
The total cost for 6-weekly deliveries will be:
–Eggs (1 dozen weekly) $30 –The taste of fresh eggs is amazing!
TOTAL FOR ALL 3: $225 for 6 WEEKLY DELIVERIES. It’s $225 for the entire 6 weeks, NOT per week.
Or, you can choose any one or two of the three categories.
More information about the Meats: Meats are pastured – no antibiotics or hormones. Usually for most cuts of beef, pork and Bison is around a pound per week….whole all natural Amish chickens run 3-5 lbs. You get a different meat each week and often times people will trade if it’s not something they like. Remember, this is local, grass fed, all natural meats! Tentative schedule (this may change!):
Feb 26th – Ground beef
5th – Whole chicken
12th – Bison skirt steak
19th – Pork bacon
26th – Ground Bison
2nd – Bison Hot Dogs
About the produce: Throughout the winter CSA months, look for beets, broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Collards, Kale, Mushrooms, Onions, Parsnips, Peppers, Spinach, Turnips and more.
We need a minimum of 20 people to participate in order to make CROSSFIT STIMULUS a pickup point every week!
Who is interested?
What additional questions can I answer?
This is very exciting, as I have been looking for a co-op like this for 2 years but all the others require a 6 or 12 month commitment and payment for the entire term up front. These farms are willing to give us a shorter “trial period” and after the initial period we will commit to 12 week periods.
