The Marin Sun Farms CSA program gives our
customers the opportunity to more directly support our livestock production and
processing efforts, helping us create a more affordable supply of meats that
are raised locally, ethically, sustainably, and humanely. In return, CSA
members receive regular deliveries of our products below full retail prices.
We offer monthly, 6-month, or 1-year CSA memberships in a variety of package options (see below). CSA packages are differentiated by their size ("Rare" = Small, "Well Done" = Large) and mix of price points - we call them "steak", "roast & braise" and "ground". Each box has a guaranteed amount within each price point, coming from our variety of species of livestock: (including but not limited to) beef, pork, goat, lamb, chicken, or duck.
The particular mix of cuts each month is based on seasonal availability; no CSA box will contain every type of species. If you prefer to not receive meat from a particular species, you are able to exempt one species from your subscription. Those looking to order particular cuts of meat need not worry- CSA members also have the exclusive ability to order specific add-on items at a 5% discount from retail value!
Each month CSA members pick up their package (plus any add-ons) at convenient pick-up locations throughout the Bay Area. We are currently serving San Francisco, East Bay, North Bay, and South Bay locations. If you can’t find a location that works for you, you can consider becoming a site host! Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the requirements and benefits of being a site host.
Livestock production and the rebuilding of our local meat processing facilities are capital intensive. The year-round financial support from the CSA program provides Marin Sun Farms the ability to confidently invest in our local, sustainable food system. We thank all of our CSA members for their support!
