Meat CSA

Fall foliage on the farm

The Community-Supported Agriculture program (CSA) provides a model of farming directly linking consumers to farmers. Help support humane local animal agriculture by enjoying some truly delicious meats through the Hampshire College Farm Meat CSA.

Invest and Enjoy
This program allows community members the opportunity to invest in local agriculture and enjoy the benefits of local, sustainably-raised meat at the same time.

Hampshire College students are welcome to volunteer with the CSA program, and a limited number of work-study positions are available.

The Hampshire College farm offers spring and fall meat CSAs for members of the Hampshire College community, including students, faculty, and staff, as well as local community members. Shareholders receive a variety of cuts of grass-fed beef and heritage-breed pigs, and can expect to receive lamb as well. Each month, shareholders receive 12-15 pounds of frozen meat, all raised right here on the Hampshire College Farm by Pete Solis, assistant director for livestock and pasture, and student farm interns. Cuts will range from ground beef and sausage to higher-end cuts such as bacon and rib eye steaks.
