QUARRY BROOK FARMS Sherburne, NY
The Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model is pretty simple: Members sign up for a share of the harvest and contribute money to the farm before the season starts. Through the winter, the farm uses that money to buy organic feed for the pigs and hens and to pay processing fees for the meat we worked hard to raise all summer.
So instead of having to apply for a loan at the bank, the farm turns to its community and then pays our community back over the season with farm fresh food. This membership relationship provides the farm with a secure market for our products and minimizes some of the marketing risks normally involved in farming. In return, CSA members get to know where and how their food is grown and contribute to the health of their surrounding communities and ecosystems by supporting farmers that care for the soil and raise organic food in a humane way.
Connect with your food. Know your farmers. Know your farm. Your investment helps a family farm to grow!

1. Pick-up your share – Monthly share packages can be picked up at three locations: The farm in Sherburne, Poolville Winter Farmers Market just outside Hamilton, or Oneida County Public Market in Utica.
2. Payment: Payments in full are very much appreciated but we do offer the following payment plan: As of 11/15/17 a deposit of 50% of your share price secures your winter share. The remaining balance is to be paid by the end of the following month. Example: A medium share would pay $240 now and the balance is due by the end of December. If other arrangements are needed, please call and speak with us. We want you to have access to good food and will work with you!
3. Farming with nature yields both great rewards and occasional hardships. Please understand that unforeseen and uncontrollable events such as crop failures or other challenges may alter the content of your share. By becoming a CSA member, you accept these risks. Thank you!
From November to April, Quarry Brook Farms will provide you with a monthly package of various meats; from organic sausages to steaks, ground beef to holiday roasts. You select what you receive! This winter we will have Grass fed/finished beef & lamb, and pasture- raised pork & eggs available to CSA members.
Winter CSA is a great way to secure your winter supply of meats without having to commit to receiving a large portion all at once, as happens when purchasing a whole lamb or a quarter beef, etc. Therefore, a large amount of freezer space is not necessary and CSA members take home only the meats they want and know they will be able to use.
