What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It’s a membership to our farm, allowing us to start each season from a place of strength with you as our committed customer. When you buy through the CSA you’re essentially purchasing a ‘share’ in the animals and products we raise throughout the year.

In return for their membership in our farm, our CSA members are provided with a ‘share’ of our farm’s unique poultry, meat, & eggs delivered to a central pickup point in their area once a month, from April to December of 2019.  

Horseradish Ranch focuses on providing healthy, high-quality proteins that will help round out your locally-based diet.

A single share will provides members with ~7 lbs of frozen meat/poultry and one dozen eggs per month. This is perfect for a household of 2 who eat meat about 2-3 times a week. 

double share provides members with ~14 lbs of frozen meat/poultry and two dozen eggs per month. This is perfect for a household of 4 who eat meat about 2-3 times a week, or a household of 2 who eat meat up to 5 times a week. 

A chicken share will provide members with ~4 lbs of frozen chicken per month. This is perfect for small households who don’t eat very many animal products, but want just a little bit of high-quality poultry to supplement their diet!

  • Recipes, cooking suggestions, and educational materials tailored to the share contents will be e-mailed to you with each delivery!

Contents may vary depending on the season and availability of products, but the dollar value of the share will always be met using the products listed above (e.g. we may substitute one kind of meat for another, or include more meat or eggs if our supply of one or the other is short during the season). Our CSA members always get priority for limited-supply items, and we do our very best to stick to the projected contents above.

You have the option of paying your membership all at once at the beginning of the season by check for a 5% discount, or being billed monthly at the rates listed above. Monthly billings require payment be made to Horseradish Ranch by the 7th day of each month, and can be made via check or Paypal.

The CSA allows our farm to plan ahead, and so we appreciate a commitment from CSA members to maintaining membership for the 2019 season as outlined in the CSA Schedule. If you need to cancel your membership mid-season due to extenuating circumstances, please contact us.

Customizations

Being a CSA member 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 more than a year in advance of when we want to deliver them. Every animal on our farm serves an integral part in a diverse ecosystem, and the CSA reflects this variety!

For this reason, customization of CSA shares is limited. At this point we aren’t able to remove products from your share, but we do allow members to add on more of certain items. We have a special CSA-members Web Store (the link is provided with membership), where we will post items every month in advance of the delivery. You can place orders online for anything additional you’d like for that month to be added to your share — extra eggs, chicken, rabbit, etc! These extras are based on what we have available and will vary a lot over the season, vs. the base share contents which are guaranteed.

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

Pickup/Meetup Policies

We offer at least one pickup point in each city we service, where you must pick up your share on the specified date and within the time window — we try to offer wide time windows to accommodate a variety of schedules. These times and locations are specified in the CSA schedule below, and you can choose which site best suits your needs. We partner with local residents and businesses to provide easy locations for picking up your share each month!

Locals: If you live on Snowden or Bates Road and are interested in having your share delivered directly to your home instead of a pickup point, please Contact Us to arrange this!

Meats are frozen and eggs are refrigerated. Your share will be pre-packed in an insulated bag with your name on it.

Cancellations, skipped shares, and failure to pick up

We allow members to skip up to 2 months over the course of the season if you are on vacation or otherwise unavailable, as long as we are given notice via e-mail at least 24 hrs ahead of the scheduled delivery. If you need to skip more than 2 deliveries per year, we recommend buying through one of our other sales channels instead of CSA. However, if you need to skip more than 2 deliveries and know which months these will be at the beginning of the year, we may be able to accomodate you.

If you are late, do not show up to your pickup point, or leave town (unable to receive delivery) without contacting us at least 24 hrs in advance of the delivery day, we cannot guarantee a refund of your share — you are responsible for showing up on time to receive your food. However, if for any reason you cannot receive your share on time the day of delivery, please do call or text us at (509)-310-3157 to let us know and we will do what we can!
