CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture is the link that directly connects
you, the consumer, to me, the farmer.
When you shop small, you are helping actual people pay actual bills. You are contributing to an ecosystem that's so important in this era of your favorite coffee shop being replaced by a Citibank. Amazon may have convenience, but small business' have heart. You help people continue to make their dreams come true because they work from their heart and soul, not just for a paycheck.

How does it work?
Pick up beef.
We listened to your suggestions and decided to have an option between bulk ordering (or hanging weight) and purchasing week to week. Our CSA will be 3 boxes over the course of the summer market season- 1 to kick things off before Memorial Day, another for July 4th, and another just in time for your Labor Day party. We will email a few days prior to those holidays to confirm, and you may pick up at Ellington Farmers Market on Saturdays from 9-12, or at the farm by appointment.
