Our CSA Swine CluB

What CSA Means

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a model of food production and distribution that directly connects farmers and eaters – people buy shares in a farm’s projected harvest in advance and for a set period (a season, or a year, for example) and receive regular deliveries.

Being part of CSA is a way for eaters to share with the farmer the costs and risks of farming as well as the bounty.

CSA models vary in their structure and payment terms, but the principle is that farms supply their produce directly to their members through a subscription model – a commitment from the eater is made to accept the produce they are given and to share the risk of the harvest with the farmer.

Reducing Our Carbon Footprint

We are proudly regenerative farmers, having introduced even better farming practices to our free range farm in 2020. Our farm is already seeing the benefits from more paddock rotations, mixed perennial pasture species and an increase in shade from hundreds of trees we are planting. Our water cycle on the farm is improving and we are seeing lots of native grasses creeping back in from longer rest periods and open soil. Regenerative agriculture means to us a constantly improving and replenishing environment, benefiting the soil microbes and thus fertility, water cycles and biodiversity, our health and our animals health. We are not fighting against nature, we are working under natures guidance, as it always should be. We generate 100% of our electricity from solar and batteries at our farm and butchery, so we don't contribute to fossil fuel harvesting, we hope to also run electric vehicles as part of our business within 2 years. Regenerative agriculture is the biggest tool we have to dramatically reduce carbon emissions, by supporting farms like ours you are directly contributing to a planet for our children to enjoy in the future.

Our CSA Model

Our CSA is modelled on our belief that life is about balance and we know that accessing good food can sometimes be tricky, as can be always having the exact same cuts available to sell every month. Our pork boxes are tailored to how you eat pork at home and your household size, delivered directly to your door from our farm once a month on the first week of the month, that changes with the seasons and the availability of certain cuts and goods.You choose your share size according to your household size.

The monthly boxes are designed for approx. 1.5 serves of pork, per person, per week + each delivery comes with smallgoods and charcuterie and little treats such as rendered lard for cooking or pork crackle, depending on what we have that month. By signing up to our CSA, you are contributing to a healthy and regenerative farming environment and also the viability of our farm and also to benefit your own health by choosing to eat ethically produced food.
