Grazing Days is committed to raising and distributing quality pastured pork to you, our CSA member. While providing you with this delicious and healthy pork, we promise to run our operation in an ecologically friendly way that protects our soils and rejuvenates our aquifers. We promise that our pork is fed feed that is 100% free of Genetically Modified organisms and pesticide residue and whatever they dig out of our pastures and free from artificial hormones and antibiotics.
Grazing Days promises to provide you with the delivery of frozen pastured pork as per your order, to an address in Ottawa, Gatineau or St-André-Avellin. The deliveries will happen on or near the dates that you have specified.
As a Grazing Days CSA member, you promise to understand the challenges related to raising and delivering pastured pork:
- You will promise to be flexible around the types of cuts you receive in your delivery. At Grazing Days we are aware of the value of different cuts of meat and we promise to make an effort to distribute the pork fairly so that over the course of the delivery season the value of the meat you receive is proportional to the total value of the full animal.
- You promise to work with us to arrange a time to be available to receive your box on delivery weekend. Delivery dates and times will be arranged about 10 days in advance of your pork delivery weekend. Please note that if you miss your agreed delivery time we will charge a $10 delivery fee for each time we need to return to your address to deliver you pork.
As a Grazing Days CSA member, you promise to read the CSA information found on www.grazingdays.ca (this website) and to stay informed about being a Grazing Days CSA member. We commit to sharing information from the farm with you throughout the season on our website and through our mailing list. We commit to providing you with opportunities to visit the farm and to learn about pastured pork production.
Together we will be making our food system happier, healthier, more safe and more sustainable. We look forward to being part of your local food community and getting to know you better.
