There are two ways that you can get access to meats from Grazing Days: by ordering a variety box Subscription (CSA) for the upcoming season, or by Ordering by the Cut and selecting exactly the type and quantity you want of each cut of meat.
Grazing Days sells quality grass-fed Angus beef, pastured pork, and pastured chicken by direct delivery in the Ottawa-Gatineau region using subscriptions. Customers place and pay for their orders in the spring. The order is then home-delivered starting in the fall, until June of next year.
This subscription model is called community shared agriculture (CSA) and it is sometimes also called community-supported agriculture.
A Subscription (CSA) customer places an order for a certain quantity of meat in advance of receiving the meat (usually at the beginning of the growing season). This allows the customer to reserve their annual portion of the farm’s production (1/8th of a cow or 8 whole chickens as an example) which is then delivered over the course of the next delivery season in one lump sum delivery, or several smaller deliveries.
The sale of subscriptions allows the farmers to focus on farming, without having to live with the uncertainty of not knowing whether all of the year’s production will be sold. Subscriptions (CSA) give farms the stability to farm well, act ecologically, and produce better-tasting and more nutritious food.
