Sign-up for 2023 CSA Membership is now open! Sign up by July 31, 2023 to participate in a 2023 half year Meat CSA!
The Shadowbrook Farm Meat CSA is a whole/half-year value-driven "subscription" to our pasture-raised products that we offer here on the farm.
Every other month, CSA Members receive a subscription box containing a diverse combination of our pastured beef, pork, and poultry products tailored to each season. Each box is designed for the convenience of storage in your regular kitchen freezer.
Being a CSA Member with Shadowbrook Farm gives you a $100+ savings over retail prices with the added security of a year-long supply of humanely-raised, delicious local meats for your family!

CSA Membership FAQS
Q: Is each box going to contain the same cuts of meat?
A: No way! Variety is the fun part of this, and its a great way to sample the full range of products we offer here on the farm. From the popular cuts of steak, to some of the more obscure bits, you will get to try it all!
Q: But what if I don’t know how to cook the weird stuff?
A: Although the CSA Membership excludes some of the super "weird" cuts, such as organs and trotters, we are here to offer advise on how to prepare each item. Plus you can always ask for a digital copy of our "Meat Handbook." Here at Shadowbrook, we consider ourselves to be "foodies" and love to cook foods as much as we love our animals, so don't be afraid to email us for advice!
Q: Are there eggs in each box?
A: Chicken Eggs are actually a seasonal item (chickens tend to only lay eggs during the warm season) but we do offer them in the majority of pickups. The seasonality to our harvest schedule will be reflected in what’s available in your CSA box. Each share highlights the seasonality of meat cooking- e.g. summer grilling vs winter stews.
Q: If I don’t want a specific item or type of meat, can I substitute something else?
A: No- the CSA Membership is a way for you to sample all the different meats we raise, and boxes are all pre-packed for convenience. For this reason, the CSA Membership may not be the best option for everyone- if you have dietary restrictions or prefer one type of meat over another, you might be better served by purchasing one of our other bulk packages offered in store or on our website.
Q: Do I need to purchase a special chest freezer to store my share?
A: No- unlike the purchasing a bulk box such as a quarter or half beef, each CSA box is sized accordingly to fit in your everyday kitchen fridge or freezer! Each pickup contains 10 to 15 lbs of frozen meat cuts- less than a cubic foot. Because the meats are frozen, you will have flexibility in deciding when to cook things and properly stored sealed packages will last a year.
Q: Is there a month to month option or a half share?
A: There is not a month-to-
