The Farm is happy to bring you the very best pasture-raised meat via a small business collaboration with Deep Roots Farm! Deep Roots Farm, also located in Chepachet, is owned and operated by Katie Steere. While we can't take credit for raising such great tasting meat, we are proud to have a partner that utilizes a system of rotational grazing to provided the highest quality beef, pork, and chicken.
Pasture-Raised Meat - available as a CSA add-on
Q. How does the meat voucher work?
You choose how much you’d like to spend over the season, either $200, $400, or $800 and that goes into a sort of bank account for you. When you order meat for your pickup with your vegetable we will deduct from your account.
Q. Do I get to choose what types of meat I want?
Yes! We are opting for this sort of buying club option because we think you should be able to choose exactly what you want. Maybe you’re more of a burger person or perhaps you really like bacon! Product availability and pricing is available HERE!
Q. What happens if I don’t use all of my credit before the end of the season?
If you still have leftover credit at the end of the CSA season, you have the rest of the calendar year to use it. We reserve the right to choose for you if you don’t let us know what you’d like. When you commit to the pre-order, you are committing to using the entire amount over the season, Deep Roots Farm will not be issuing refunds!
Q. What if I love meat so much that I end up wanting to buy more than I pre-purchased?
That would be a great problem, wouldn’t it? If you run out of credit, we can either re-fill your account or do ‘buy as you go’ for the rest of the season.
Q. What types of products will be available?
We will have pastured beef, pork, and chicken for all of your culinary delights!
Q. Why should I sign up ahead of time instead of buying as I go?
There are a few benefits to this, for you, and for us! If you pre-pay, you get a certain amount of bonus credit as well as priority ordering. Seeing as Deep Roots Farm is brand new, they will not have unlimited amounts of everything and you will get first pick! It also benefits Katie as it gives her an idea of what demand will be for the year and it helps her buy things like grain for the pigs and chickens while they’re growing. Those pigs can really eat!
Q. How often will I get a meat?
Meat will accompany your veggie box once every two weeks, most likely the first and third week of each month of the CSA.
Q. Can I put my credit towards purchasing a quarter, half, or whole animal?
Yes! Deep Roots offers whole and half pigs, and quarter and half cows. Purchasing your meat in this fashion is the most economical way for you to buy local, pasture raised meat.
Q. This all sounds great but is there a way I can get a taste of pasture-raised meat before I purchase a full voucher?
YES! Deep Roots Farm is offering a special "sampler pack" for only $50 when you purchase a veggie CSA. (Limit one per new customer). The sampler pack includes:
1 lb ground beef
1 lb stew meat
1 lb maple breakfast sausage
1 lb sweet italian sausage
1 whole chicken (3 lb)
