2016 EarthSmith CSA
Happy Spring friends! EarthSmith Farm is entering into our fourth operating season and second season of our Pastured Meats CSA. Our meat CSA offers members an affordable alternative to conventional, store bought meat. Our animals are raised on pasture, rotated regularly, born and bred on the farm, and minimally supplemented with local NON-GMO grains that we buy from other farmers. We do not use any pharmaceuticals or chemical dewormers on any of our market animals. We raise heritage breeds for up to 9-12 months, thus producing an exceptional product in flavor and apperance.Since our animals are raised on pasture there are many added health benefits such as; healthy omega 3 to 6 ratios, healthy fat from grass, lower LDL cholesterol levels, and higher amino acid levels. Plus amazing flavor!
So far we have had one litter of piglets born in 2016 and are expecting 4-6 more throughout the year! In addition to all of that, some of our other main focuses for this year include building a perimeter fence around the entire farm, burying a livestock and irrigation waterline 3/4 of a mile out to our pastures, finishing construction of two hoop-houses, and building a 30 ft long log bridge so that we can access our woods!
Sign up for the 2016 CSA is now open and ready to go at www.earthsmithfarm.com under the “CSA” Tab. In an attempt to grow our CSA and gaining members and community awareness we are also offering a 5% discount to any member that refers a friend/friends (5% for each referral). Just ask your friends to mention your name in an email or message at the time they sign up! Members get an overall discount on products compared to our retail prices at markets, plus additional perks such as; personal farm tours, invitations to special farm events (pig roast, pot lucks, field days, etc.), a connection to your food and your farmers and knowing that you are doing your part in supporting a young local farm.
We’re looking forward to seeing all of you in 2016 for a wonderful season of ecological and sustainably farmed foods! Thanks for your continued support of local agriculture, food, and business. Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions.
Your Farmers, Clay & Colette
