Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a partnership between a farmer and consumer that benefits both. By purchasing a share, the consumer pays up front for some of the costs of production of their food, helping the farmer with cash flow and planning. In return, the consumer gets the satisfaction of knowing exactly where their food is grown and how, and receives a reduced price for being willing to enter into a financial partnership with the farmer. Two Dog Farm sells vegetables, pork and beef by the share.
Vegetables shares — We are committed to being good stewards of the land, and we grow our certified organic vegetables without the use of any synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. We grow a wide variety of mixed vegetables, selecting varieties for their taste and ability to grow in our northern climate. Our vegetable shares are delivered weekly from late May until mid October (approximately 20 weeks). We plan the garden to produce as much variety as possible each week, given seasonal constraints. Our full share comes in a 1 1/9 bushel box, and we expect it to feed a family of four or two people who cook a lot and eat a lot of vegetables. Our single share comes in a ½ bushel box, and is intended to feed 1 to 2 adults. For more information and an order form click here.
Pasture Raised Pork – Our pigs always have access to grass and land to roam. We feed grain to fulfill part of their dietary needs and supplement with room to root around and plenty of garden produce. A pork share comes in at about 60 to 70 lbs of a variety of cuts, with some customization possible. The cost is $6.75 per pound. For more information and an order form click here.
Grass Fed Beef – Our animals are naturally raised on grass. In the winter months they feed on a mixture of dry hay and baleage, though they always have access to pasture. As the grass greens the animals start to feed solely on pasture. A share is approximately 50 to 60 lbs of a mixture of cuts, with usually about 25 lbs of ground beef. The cost is $6.25 per pound.
