CSA's

What is a CSA?

CSA Stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Traditionally a CSA is thought to be more closely associated with veggie farms but it works just as well for meat, poultry and eggs. We offer four meat CSA's along with a special fish share add on from our friends at Hook and Larder

Pork, Beef, Lamb, Chicken and Turkey Shares:

Just the two of us

For the Family

Poultry Only Share

Birds of a feather

Pastured Meat Share
CSA Box

Not everyone has the freezer space for a whole or half hog let alone a side of beef. By signing up for our monthly meat subscription you’re guaranteed to get the flavorful cuts of meat you’ve come to rely on from us, without the need for a big freezer. Monthly meat boxes are available for pickup (at the South Durham Farmers’ Market, on the farm and delivery to select locations). Each month will come with tried and true recipes that use the cuts in your box. What a fabulous way to expand your cooking repertoire. Choose from 2 sizes that fit your needs. Just pick a monthly or yearly payment (monthly payments will be automatically billed).

Fish Share from Hook and Larder

Add to existing meat shares ONLY

If you shop at the South Durham Farmers' Market then you've met the fish-man himself, James Clark. Every week sweet, soft spoken James comes to market oozing positivity....I usually show up tired, grumpy with an attitude that would impress a teenage girl (that changes once the market gets going but I'm a bit of a pill first thing). I've learned so much about cooking fish from this accomplished chef which is why, when asked to set up my Rougmont friends with fish I knew exactly who ask....my go to fish supplier. They have some of the most beautiful fish I've ever had, plus their name makes me smile. If you decide to add a Hook and Larder Fish share you'll be able to get it with your Meat share (sorry, but you must be a member of one of our meat CSA's to participate in the fish share).

Here's a little more about our fishy friends: "Hook & Larder has been providing the Triangle with Fresh NC Seafood Since 2017. We work with NC Commercial Fisherman that we have created relationships with over the years. Please visit us to learn more at Hookandlarder.com or our FaceBook page www.facebook.com/HookandLarder/ "

The Excellent Egg Share

(Seasonally Available)

Are you one of those dedicated market customers who get up early just to find out they’ve missed out on eggs or anxiously refreshing their screen waiting for our store to open…. then read on. From the first Saturday in March until the last Saturday in August you are guaranteed 1 dz eggs weekly….phew, isn’t that a load off your mind! Don’t want to pick up weekly? Eggs hold for months which makes it easy for us to put yours to the side until you’re ready to pick up (just be sure to communicate your plans with me. But what about now? Depending on how the ladies are laying we might be able to add a Winter subscription (we’re adding even more hens this year!). Anyone who signs up for this CSA will have first dibs on our potential Winter egg CSA.

More About Our Girls-

Have you ever cracked open an egg and marveled at the deep, rich color of the yoke? Well, you might have if you’ve ever bought eggs from us! Our completely free-range chickens spend their days scratching for bugs in the shade of an oak or following around one of our cows waiting for that big brown pay day. Not only do they save us the trouble of spreading that manure, but all that buggy protein means their eggs are about as packed full of nutrients as you can get!

 

Meat Cuts

Not a huge fan of lamb? Try ours before you knock it! Our sheep are a hair breed which have a much milder taste. They’re also 100% grass fed and Animal Welfare Approved which only makes it better.

As for our pork, it’s 100% pasture raised, (read more about pasture raised vs grass fed HERE) fed locally milled feed and supplemented with seconds from various organic farms around the area. In case you’re interested, we have several breeds of pigs ranging from Berkshire mixes, American Guinea Hog but the real star of the show are our Mangalitsas. Be sure to ask what breed you’re buying at checkout, because we have a few and boy oh BOY does it make a difference!

There's also our non-GMO, pasture raised turkey cuts. No need to wait for the holidays for your turkey fix! We raise enough during the season to have our flavorful turkey year round.

 

Visit our store (Monday to Thursday at 5pm) to pre-order our current selection of pork/lamb cuts or just visit us at the South Durham Farmer’s Market!

Farmstead Sausages

Our farmstead sausage journey started kind of as a happy accident. Before Samantha’s father passed, he wanted to taste an English Banger that tasted the way he remembered them growing up and Samantha rose to the task! She made the sausage and after resounding positive feedback, she decided to continue dabbling until it became a key portion of our business! The list of sausage is ever growing and changing so check out our the link below for what’s currently available.
