CSA: Koch Ranches, Inc.
Operates: year round
Cheryl Koch Ludwick
We have full and half shares in the following categories: Produce Only, Meat Only & Mixed. We only have 125 produce shares available at this time, after the start date, we will pro-rate shares until we reach our share limit for the season. Once we have filled the shares, we close the season so don't let time get away from you. Meat only shares are always available as we do not cap them at this time. We sometimes partner with other farms for a portion of the produce for the CSA. Our 10-week share begins/began July 11, 2014. To sign up, visit us at one of our farmers markets, at our Gourmet Country Store: 2114 Mannix Dr., or contact us from our website. Our goal is for the produce portion of a full share size to be based on supplying enough produce for a family of 4 who eat a mixed diet or 1-2 vegetarians. Half shares are available and we recommend them for 1-2 person households. The meat only share includes 6 meat cuts, one of which will be substituted with a dozen eggs every other week. The meat only half share will include 4 meat cuts, one of which will be substituted with a dozen eggs every other week. The mixed share includes the full or half share of produce plus meat and eggs. The full share includes 3 meat cuts, one of which will be substituted with 1 dozen eggs every other week. The half share includes 2 meat cuts, one of which will be substituted with a dozen eggs every other week.
Since here in South Texas, we are able to grow produce year-round, we divide the season into 5 sub-seasons of 10 weeks each. (We don't deliver Thanksgiving and Christmas weekends). Some weeks produce amounts will be slightly less than others due to what can be harvested at the time. Our combination shares which include meat and eggs will sometimes supplement with additional of those commodities in the weeks that the produce is reduced. A La Carte Orders. We have additional meat available a la carte for those who are interested in supplementing their combination share or if you prefer to only purchase meat sporadically rather than make it part of your weekly share. Note: There is an inherent discount on the meat in the share that is not available in a la carte purchases. Payment is due at the time of commitment. Subscriptions will be held by payment only. A la carte orders can be ordered via email and picked up with the share or can be chosen from the selection available at the pickup location that day. At this time, all payments for a la carte items will be due on pickup.
