What is Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)?
Community-supported agriculture, commonly referred to as a CSA model, connects the producer, in this case, Tallowah Farm, directly with you the consumer, by allowing you to subscribe to a share of our harvest. By paying for your share in advance, you help us to grow high quality, nutrient dense, humane food without growth hormones, antibiotics, synthetic pesticides, and herbicides.
Tallowah Farm brings to you two Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) options.
Pick of the Garden
For $20 per week, you receive a box of fresh, locally grown food from Tallowah Farm in Campti, LA. In this box will be delicious in-season produce valued between $25-$30. Pick of the Garden Shares are sold in 12-week blocks for $240/block. That is a savings of 20-33% on fresh, nutrient-dense produce, grown here and sold here, so your money helps to build a thriving local economy right here. You may make an initial deposit of $120 and then pay the balance before week six.
We offer locally grown pasture raised pork. This season, for the first time, we are offering a limited number of shares on a first-come, first-served basis. A share consists of a box, weighing between 25-30 pounds, that contains a variety of cuts, including chops, sausage and bacon. By purchasing a share, you are getting an overall discounted rate on our pork and helping to support our pasture pig operation.
The share includes:
1” pork chops (4 packages)
Tenderloin (1 package)
Country style ribs (2 packages)
Spareribs (2 packages)
Sausage (6-1 lb packages)
Bacon (4-1 lb packages)
The share will contain about 25-30 pounds of pork. Shares will be priced at $5/per pound of pork.
You must provide a $50 deposit to hold your spot. When you pick up your share, you will pay the balance due, which depends on the final weight of your box. We are expecting the boxes to weigh between 25-30 pounds. Therefore, your final cost will be between $125-$150.
Individual Cuts (When Available)
1’ Chops $6/lb
Spare Ribs $6/lb
Country Style Ribs $6/lb
Thick Cut Bacon $6.50/lb
All Other Cuts $5.50/lb
Goat and Lamb $6.50/lb
