Making a $100 deposit secures your place in line for a share of pork from Firebrand Meats’ first CSA offering. Each share will be 35-40 lbs of pork (one quarter of one hog) and will cost approximately $380 plus actual 3-day shipping to your location. You will also be able to pick up your share at the farm in Trumansburg with no shipping costs.
At the moment we are only taking credit card payments but by June 2nd we are expexting to be accepting Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dai, Litecoin and USD coin through Coinbase.
Included in the shares will be bacon, pork chops, pork shoulder, breakfast sausage, hot dogs and kielbasa. There are certain products that don’t divide up well four ways, such as ribs, liver and hocks. These products will be available as addons when you buy a full share on a first come, first served basis.
Here’s how it works: if you purchase this deposit, you will have a guaranteed share. There are 240 shares available in the first round. When all of the shares have been sold, you will get an email with final details about price and dates to expect shipment. At that time you can either buy the share or opt out and ask for a refund. Assuming the shares sell quickly, product should be ready in October or November. The deposit is fully refundable at any time.
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Your job is to buy the product ahead of time, wait in eager anticipation and then enjoy it when you get it! Our job is to make the best product we know how to as thanks for your support for our project. If you want to brag to your friends that your pork will be better than theirs, we can’t stop you.
Remember, this will be Berkshire pork fed on barley, pea starch and pasture. The pork will be free of both corn and soy from the time it steps onto The Piggery Farm.
Products from The Piggery Farm are sold exclusively through Firebrand Meats.
