For a second year and back by popular demand, The Trustees is offering a winter/spring Meat CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program featuring varied cuts of beef, pork and chicken. New offerings this year also include lamb and an optional egg program.
All meat and eggs are produced sustainably and humanely on Trustees farms by Trustees farmers. Meat CSA members pre-pay for a “share” of the meat that The Trustees produce and receive a set number of pounds of meat every other week or month, depending on the size and type of share they chose. Meat comes pre-frozen in a variety of cuts ranging from steaks and ground beef to pork chops and sausage.
Running through May 22, Meat CSA members can pick up shares bi-weekly or monthly at one of five Trustees farms: Weir River Farm in Hingham, Moose Hill Farm in Sharon, Powisset Farm in Dover, Chestnut Hill Farm in Southborough, and, new this year, Appleton Farms in Ipswich. Members receive a set number of pounds of meat depending on the frequency of their share pick up. Options and prices for the season include:
Bi-weekly Share, 15 pick-ups: 105 pounds per season ($1,100; add one dozen eggs per pick-up for $90)
Monthly Share: 7 pick-ups; 49 pounds per season ($550; add one dozen eggs per pick-up for $45)
Meat CSA members can choose the pick-up location and day that is most convenient:
Weir River Farm, Hingham — Wednesday, 2-6 p.m., or Saturday, 11a.m.-3 p.m.
Chestnut Hill Farm, Southborough — Tuesday, 2-6 p.m., plus additional winter farmstand hours
Moose Hill Farm, Sharon — Thursday, 2-6 p.m.
Powisset Farm, Dover — Wednesday, 2-6 p.m., plus additional winter farmstand hours
Appleton Farms, Ipswich — During regular winter Farm Store hours: Thursday and Friday, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
Trustees Meat CSA registrations are now on sale and accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. A Trustees membership is required, as the opportunity to participate in Trustees CSAs is a benefit of Trustees membership. For more information and to register, please visit www.thetrustees.org/meatcsa or email email@example.com.
