Join our 2018 Chicken CSA
What’s a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a popular way for consumers to buy local, seasonal food directly from a farmer, while supporting the upfront expenses to generate healthy food products.
Here are the basics: a farmer offers a certain number of “shares” to the public. Typically the share consists of a box of vegetables, but in our case we have whole chickens. Interested consumers purchase a share and in return receive their share at the time of harvest.
What will you get by joining our CSA?
Choose from the two options below and pickup your chicken on the date and drop-site location to be determined.
Half Share $100 – 6 free-range chickens (Delivered June 2018)
Full Share $200 – 2 x 6 free-range chickens (Delivered June and Sept 2018)
Raised locally in Northfield by Latino graduates of our Agripreneur Training Program, our chickens are:
Fed only non-GMO feed, sprouts and forages.
Free of antibiotics and chemicals.
Free of crates or confinement, rotationally grazed humanely outdoors
You have the power to help…
raise the operating funds for families who want to train in our system. Purchase chicken through our CSA Model today. Your money will go to support our trainees in the upcoming 2018 season, and it will put healthy food on your table. This is your chance to actively participate in reshaping the food system.
In addition to educating trainees on Main Street Project’s poultry-centered regenerative agriculture system, farmers who take part in the agripreneur training program work together to learn flock and paddock management while they acquire the skills for running their small business. As support for our agricultural model grows, graduates of the training program will help build a regional agriculture economy that restores the land; produces healthy, nourishing food; and positively impacts marginalized and underemployed community members.
