Whitney Creek’s CSA Program
Are you a customer of Whitney Creek Farm who would like to have our quality meats throughout the winter to feed your family? We understand that sometimes it can be difficult to find the freezer space or the up-front finances to purchase in bulk, and that our farm store is “off the beaten path”.
Deliveries will be made on the 15th and 30th of each month, beginning in November and concluding in June. You will receive approximately 8 pounds of meat per delivery. You will enjoy a variety of quality meats each month, including breakfast meats, specialty meats for grilling, ground beef or pork, roasts, and steaks with no differences in price. Eat steaks for the price of ground beef. Make four payments of $256 to receive 128 pounds of meat.
How to Cook
The first thing you might notice about meat from pasture-raised animals is that it does not share the uniformity of size and shape like meat produced in confinement farms. That’s because everything in a factory is controlled: specific genetics, temperature, feed rations, pen sizes, medications, animal behavior, etc. In our pasture-based system, you will find a mix of genetics. Many of our animals are of heritage breeds. More robust, inquisitive, and energetic, they are designed to thrive outdoors in all kinds of conditions.
Pasture-raised meats have different prep needs than conventional meats because of these differences in muscle and fat. Click the learn more button for our guide on cooking pasture raised meats.
The Icelandic sheep produces a premium fleece. The fleece is dual coated, with a fine, soft undercoat and a longer, coarser outer coat. The outer coat is lustrous, strong, water and wear resistant, and sheds off the rain and weather. The soft downy undercoat provides the loft for the outer coat and insulation for the sheep. The combination of the two fibers on the sheep gives superb protection from the cold and wet.
