Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is based on consumers buying a share of a particular producer’s foods, creating a mutually advantageous relationship.
One example is City Farm Austin where your shares get you raw goat’s milk. Prices depend on who milks the goats: if you milk the animals, and perform farm tasks, the cost is less. They also conduct goat cheese making classes.
Farmhouse Delivery provides a weekly or bi-weekly delivery of fresh, local produce, and local dairy, meat, poultry and baked items.
Skinny Lane Farm offers a range of foods, from vegetables, melons, pastured eggs, grass-fed beef, herbs, flowers, jams & jellies.
