Natick Community Organic Farm raises farm animals on their certified organic pastures and feed them certified organic grain as a supplement. They are raised in the public eye using only the most humane of practices and are slaughtered at the highest quality humane slaughterhouse in Massachusettes. All meat is “fresh-frozen,” by the farm’s local USDA-certified butchers.

The CSA share is composed of:

  • 50-75% ground products including ground beef, ground pork, ground lamb, and sausage
  • 25-50% grilling cuts like steaks, pork chops, lamb chops, etc
  • As with any CSA, all share contents will selected at the Farmers’ discretion. We cannot predict or guarantee share contents.

Small shares cost $200. Small shareholders will receive over $50 worth of meat per pick up at a minimum discount of 5%; it’s likely to be higher.

Large shares cost $400. Large shareholders will receive over $100 worth of meat per pick up at a minimum discount of 10%; it’s likely to be higher.

For $100 more, small or large CSA shareholders can add one whole chicken to each pick up, at a savings of approximately $5/bird.

Pick ups will place every other week, during the weeks of September 6, September 20, October 4, and October 18 during NCOF’s regular staffed hours. (Monday-Thursday 9am-4pm, and Friday 9am-1pm)
