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 delicious, pasture-raised 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 pasture-fed, sustainably-raised meat at the same time.
The Hampshire College Farm offers spring and fall meat CSA shares for members of the Hampshire College community, including students, staff, and faculty, as well as local community members. Shareholders receive a variety of cuts of grass-fed beef, heritage-breed pork, and lamb. Each month for three months, shareholders receive 12-15 pounds of frozen meat, all raised right here on the Hampshire College Farm by our hardworking livestock assistant and our student farm crew. Cuts range from ground beef and sausage to higher-end cuts such as bacon and rib eye steaks.
Sign up online.
Pick up at the Hampshire College Farm, at Thorpe House.
$350 for three monthly pickups (October-December 2020) of 12-15 lbs of frozen meat each. That's 40-45 lbs total of local, sustainable, heritage-breed, pasture-raised meat. Quite a deal!
