what's available on ANONYMOUS FARM?

Thank you for your interest in our farm and in CSAs. Anonymous farm is a true small scale family farm. Freezer meat orders are still being taken for 2011. The CSA shares for eggs, produce and honey are sold for the 2011 season, we have honey left but do not plan to offer CSA shares for 2012. If you cannot find a local farm offerring CSA shares I encourage you to visit local farmers markets for fresh local produce.
Meat shares are not done in weekly portions. At processing time animals are sold in freezer camp quantities: 1/4 steer beef, 1/2 pig pork, whole poultry, etc. And like the produce, speciaty meats can be raised to order if requested. Currently the guineas and roosters are for pest control and predator warnings, and ducks are for eggs for the family... but we could increase the flock of these or other animals to allow for purchases if requested. We are considering adding lamb back to our farm if there is a demand.
Produce, egg and honey production are limited this year due to family changes and a lack of customer response when planning the garden. Harvest volumes and timing depend on factors such as the weather and wildlife tolls, family health, help and motivation. If you are local and want to pay in labor (and get some productive exercise), you get more choice in what is grown, how it is cared for and how much you get in return for how many hours you can spend contributing to the garden labor.

Hope you and your family eat healthy and grow strong.
