CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. It is a way for people to directly connect with the farms that produce the food for your family. The concept began with vegetable farmers who saw it as a way to spread the risk of farming as well as gain some much needed cash at the beginning of the season instead of at the end. The CSA sells shares in the farm prior to the growing season. As the vegetables are planted and harvested, members pick up their “share” or fresh veggies each week. Typically vegetable CSA’s require full payment prior to the start of the season.

Sage Mountain Beef CSA operates on a similar community based principle. We offer a certain number of shares each six or twelve month cycle based on the number of animals we are raising. These shares are distributed once a month at pre-arranged locations. We also guarantee the weight of meat each month. The risk is in the type of meat which can be affected by who is ready for “harvest” and issues at the slaughterhouse that may be beyond our control.
