GROWING PRACTICES

To the fullest extent possible, our animals are pasture-raised. This means they are rotated throughout fresh certified organic pasture during the months of the year that this is feasible, and allowed continuous access to the outdoors during the snow-covered months. 

Chickens need a balanced diet that relies on grains to support their health and growth. We go out of our way to provide local feed that is not genetically modified/non-GMO. Our animals are never given growth hormones. We treat animals like ourselves, and would give antibiotics only in the case of a true medical emergency, never to boost growth or to temper the effects of confinement. There has never yet been a cause for antibiotics use at our farm.

For more information about our practices, please ask us. 

NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS OF PASTURE-RAISED EGGS

Eggs raised out on pasture have a great nutritional profile, including 1⁄3 less cholesterol, 1⁄4 less saturated fat, 2⁄3 more vitamin A, two times more omega-3 fatty acids, three times more vitamin E, and seven times more beta carotene. (1)

REFUNDS AND CANCELLATIONS

We know that joining a CSA is a big commitment, and we want you to be completely satisfied with your experience at our farm. If you find you have a problem of any kind, we hope you will come to us right away so we can fix it or provide an explanation. If you're unsatisfied for any reason, we will refund you the balance of your share on demand. 

PAYMENT PLANS

Want to break up the cost of your share into more manageable installments? Just let us know and we're happy to be flexible about payments.

RECYCLED CARTONS

We love getting back clean, stacked, recycled cartons. Thank you! Unfortunately, we don't use Styrofoam, but many town transfer stations will recycle them for you.
