Updated 2.11.08: Note – the meat part is not a CSA in that the meat is being bought in from farms in Vermont and the community is not sharing the risk along with the farmer. This model is a buying club.
A new (I believe) farm in Lee, NH is offering CSA shares, cut flowers, and a meat
CSA buying club. Yes, folks, that is what you read. Meat CSA. Joshua Learner, owner/farmer of Laughing Seed Farm writes, “All vegetables will be organically grown but not certified organic. Meat is all natural with no growth hormones or antibiotics. The farm also offers eggs cruelty free and cage free.” Memberships in the meat CSA buying club will be based on pounds per month and will include beef and pork. For example, you could sign up for a 6 month meat CSA share membership at 10, 20, 25, or 50 pounds per month.
But don’t forget the veggies! Laughing Seed Farm is also offering a vegetable CSA – CSA shares all over the Seacoast are prized and coveted things. If you’ve been interested in trying one out and Lee is in your general neighborhood, give it a try.
Joshua Learner can be contacted at Laughing Seed Farm by calling 603-502-0643 or emailing joshua @ century21central . com (take out the spaces I added to protect Joshua from spam)
