From TrailBale Farm...
Hi Farm Friends,
The TrailBale Meat and Egg CSA (or TBMECSA, well never mind, the CSA) is starting this Saturday! There is still time to sign up for this season. We’ve got a few families already committed, but we have enough eggs, chicken and more to have more guaranteed orders from September through November.
See below for the details, but rest assured, this is very flexible, and very casual. Here are some examples of the CSA plans already chosen:
· 1 chicken and 1 dozen eggs, every week
· 5 chickens every 4 weeks
· 1 chicken and 3 dozen eggs every 2 weeks
· $80 to spend on anything every 2 weeks
· $50 of “surprise me” farmer’s choice every week (fun!)
If you don’t sign up this season, no worries. We’ll still have plenty of meats and eggs, you just may not get exactly what you’re looking for immediately. Priority goes to CSA members.
Make the choices below, and send them to me. You’re set!
Choose the frequency of deliveries: (weekly, bi-weekly (every other week), other)
Pick a primary delivery location: (TrailBale Farm, TT Farmers Market, in-town farm fridge, Riverview location*, Hyde Park Location*, Safety Harbor location*, other neighborhood location*, home delivery**) (* = bi-weekly only) (** = extra charge)
Make your order (for every delivery):
Whole Chickens, 2.5 lb to 4.5 lb, $5.40/lb (that’s 10% off) – Order by size or price
Half Chickens, 1.2 lb to 2.5 lb, $5.40/lb (that’s 10% off) – Order by size or price
Eggs, $6.30/dozen (that’s 10% off)
Boneless skinless chicken breast, 1 lb packages, $12.60/lb (that’s 10% off)
Leg quarters, 1.5 lb packages, $8.10/lb (that’s 10% off)
Chicken wings, 2 lb packages, $5.40/lb (that’s 10% off)
Ground Beef in 1 lb packages, $9.25/lb
NY Strip Steaks, 1.5 lb, $18.50/lb
Top Round Roasts, 1 lb, $12.50/lb
Other (see www.trailbale.com/products
, and let’s figure it out). Sorry, Hammock Farm pork will only be available for a few more weeks.
OR: A fixed dollar amount per week/bi-week. Spend it each time, and you get the 10% discount on chicken, eggs, and rabbit.
OR: Alternate weeks with different items. We’re not machines, we can figure this out.
(Sorry, no discount on Providence Cattle Co’s beef. Only on TrailBale Farm items)
Choose a payment option:
Full Payment – Cash or Check at first delivery (preferred)
Full Payment – Online credit card invoice
Half Payment now, Half at 6 weeks – Cash or Check at first delivery
Half Payment now, Half at 6 weeks – Online credit card invoice
As a CSA member, you’ll get first pick on special farm stuff, like lamb, rabbit and turkeys. You’ll also get the 10% discount on rabbit. We’ll also try and sneak in some special things for you (you’ll definitely be getting some katuk for summer salads. Maybe honey? Maybe jams?).
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, and that is exactly what this arrangement would be. You would be supporting us by assuring us orders for three months, and by paying up-front to help us cover costs easier. In return, you will get a discount, priority on products (CSA members get eggs first), and the ease of ordering once and being done. And our heartfelt thanks.
Respond to this email with the top filled in, and with any questions. It’ll probably take a couple emails back-and-forth to get this first one straightened out.
