What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It’s essentially a membership to our farm, allowing us to start each season from a place of strength with you as our committed customer. Our CSA members will enjoy a selection of our unique products delivered direct to their home once a month from April to December. Our CSA is intended to complement, not replace, any vegetable CSA you may already be a part of — Horseradish Ranch focuses on providing high-quality proteins and a few flavorful extras that will help round out your locally-based diet.

Box Contents

The share will contain 6-7 lbs of frozen meat and poultry, eggs, and a small selection of flavorful herbs & extras. Have a larger household, or just love to eat? Sign up for a double share, which is 2 times the contents of a normal share with a 5% price reduction.

Contents of a Single Share:

  • 1 Whole Red Ranger Chicken (3-4 lbs)
  • 1 of the following (2-3 lbs):
    • Whole Rabbit
    • Whole Duck
    • Lamb (cuts and/or ground)
    • Whole Heritage Chicken
  • 1 dz Heritage Chicken Eggs or Duck Eggs
  • A small selection ($5-10 of share value) of seasonal and regional herbs, produce, or grains/beans that complement our meats (We often partner with our close neighbors Blue Moon Stead and The Raymond Ranch to provide these items)
  • Recipes, cooking suggestions, and educational materials tailored to the box contents!

Contents may vary depending on the season, availability of items, and value of items included. Our CSA members always get priority for limited-supply items, and we do our best to stick to the projected contents above.

Pricing

Our CSA membership cost is $75/month for a single share ($142/month for a double share), with a total of 9 monthly shares available throughout the 2018 season from April to December. Delivery is free.

You can join the CSA at any time throughout the year (provided that we still have shares available). You have the option of paying your membership all at once at the beginning of the season for a 5% discount, or on a monthly basis prior to each delivery.

Customizations

Being a CSA customer allows our farm to plan ahead for the season, making sure we get the right amount of the best items to our most committed customers. It takes time to raise quality animals — some of our products have to be planned for a whole year or more in advance of when we want to sell them.

For this reason, we do not offer customization of the CSA share itself. BUT:

If you want more of certain items (e.g. you love chicken or lamb in particular), you can sign up for a CSA share and then order additional items from the Web Store for delivery at the same time (any delivery fees associated with one-time Web Store orders are waived for delivery with a CSA share).

For those who specifically don’t want certain items or are looking for full control over what they order and when, we recommend making a’la carte orders through our Web Store or finding us at one of our Farmer’s Markets instead of joining the CSA. Web Store orders are fully customizable, and there’s no commitment involved.

We always welcome feedback on our CSA share contents to better serve our members!

Pickup/Meetup Policies

For those who live outside of city limits or who desire an alternative to delivery, we will offer at least one pickup/meetup point within the limits of each city we service, where you can come pick up your share on a particular day within a given time window specified in the CSA schedule.
Back to Menu

Delivery Policies

We offer delivery to homes and businesses within the city limits of:

  • Portland, OR
  • Hood River, OR
  • White Salmon, WA

Deliveries will be made anytime between 8am and 8pm on the dates detailed in the schedule.

Items come frozen or refrigerated. Please leave a cooler with at least a 20qt capacity on your porch or stoop by 7am to receive delivery. A larger cooler may be needed if you have ordered a double share or additional a’la carte items from the web store. You may need to provide ice or ice packs if the weather is particularly hot.

If security is an issue at your location, consider using one of our Pickup/Meetups instead 🙂 If your location has special instructions (such as the lobby of a business or apartment building, or a specific building at an address with multiple houses), you will be asked to specify this during the sign-up process. We cannot be held responsible for lost or stolen orders after we have delivered them.

Cancellations/skipped shares

We are happy to skip shares while you are on vacation or otherwise unavailable, as long as we are given advance notice via e-mail.

If you are late, do not show up, or go out of town without contacting us at least 24 hrs in advance of the delivery day, we cannot guarantee a refund of your share.

If for any reason you cannot receive your share on time the day of delivery, or if your share is missing from your pickup point, please call or text us at (509)-310-3157 to let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you!
