Red Acre Farm

offers a year-round free-choice CSA share

We are offering a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share that provides food for 12 months of the year for all diet choices.

This is for a diet of 3 meals a day, not food storage.

Members come to the farm once a week and take what they need in any quantity or combination they choose.

Shares include a wide variety of nutrient-dense vegetables, herbs, fruits, raw goat milk, raw cow milk, cheese, yogurt, and eggs from happy hens, as well as free-range beef, pork, goat, and lamb, pasture-raised chicken, and turkey, and grains: spelt and whole wheat (ancient varieties).

Members choose what to take each week and are encouraged to take extra produce in peak season for preserving. We sometimes limit scarce items like prime cuts of meat, honey, certain fruits, or the year’s first tomatoes, but most food is available on an all-you-can-eat basis.

We do not intend to entirely replace the grocery store; this program offers the ability for members to eat most of their food from the farm.

When members join our farm share, it will require a level of awareness about seasonal foods that would seem radical for most American diets. In practice, the share provides enough food not to eliminate all grocery store shopping, but to reduce it to a supplement.

Less than 75 years ago these foods were the norm, homegrown, locally sourced, and organic - the way food should be!

“The first supermarket supposedly appeared on the American landscape in 1946. That is not very long ago. Until then, where was all the food? Dear folks, the food was in homes, gardens, local fields, and forests. It was near kitchens, near tables, near bedsides. It was in the pantry, the cellar, the backyard.

― Joel Salatin

Fruit

What the farm cannot offer due to the climate in this area we forage for or partner with two very small family orchards just far enough south that they can grow what we cannot. Apples, Apricots, Blackberries, Cherries, Figs, Grapes, Melons, Nectarines, Peaches, Pears, Plums, Pomegranates, and Raspberries. Citrus (from California or Arizona), Cranberries ( These are not from a marsh, they are hand-harvested from the bush from our friends growing on 2 certified organic acres in Oregon), and Strawberries ( from one small certified organic farm that we know personally in southern California)

Dairy and Eggs

We provide raw Jersey cow and raw Snubian (Saanen and Nubian mix) goat milk on tap. Members who choose whole milk have the opportunity to make butter, kefir, yogurt, and cheese. When there is an abundance of milk we will offer soft cheese and yogurt. We partner with a local raw dairy and small artisans to provide additional cheeses.

Our laying hens are happy! They free-range and are fed a custom blend of whole grain containing no corn, soy, or animal by-products. We never give them antibiotics or hormones. Their eggs are fertile, and they drink from untreated well water.

Meat

Free-range beef, pork, goat, and lamb. Our chickens and turkeys are raised on pasture.
Not all cuts or every type of meat is offered every week. We sometimes limit prime cuts. Turkeys are only available at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Because we raise and have whole animals butchered for our members, we all eat from nose to tail. There will be nutrient-dense organ meats and bones as well as pure tallow and lard.
Our cows, pigs, goats, lambs, chickens, and turkeys, are raised off-farm where there is plenty of room to range.

Spelt is grown in Iron County, and whole wheat (ancient varieties) is grown in Utah. We have a grinder for you to grind your grain. 

Occasional

Occasional items from Red Acre Farm & neighboring farms we consider to be gems in our region include honey, canned or frozen products, flowers, and bread.
