Consumer supported agriculture is the principle of connecting local consumers who want fresh, local food with local farmers who want a consistent and appreciative market for their offerings. Consumers can support a local farm by purchasing, in advance, a portion of that farm’s products. The farmer produces the food for the consumers and distributes a portion of the harvest among participants. Because of their investment, CSA participants enjoy top priority status as customers of Walnut Hills Farm.
Walnut Hills Farm currently offers three different CSA packages: All Natural Beef, Slow Cook, and The Griller.
You may start your CSA plan at any time. A deposit is required to reserve your share. The balance is due at the first pick-up, or you may choose to pay a monthly amount at each pick-up. Total cost is based on the plan and payment option selected. We accept cash, check, or debit card.
Our Slow Cook CSA offers 3 and 6 month shares of our all natural, grass-fed, dry-aged beef, farm fresh pork, and true free-range Label Rouge-style chicken.

Beef roasts may include Chuck Roast, Shoulder Roast, Rump Roast, Top Round Roast, Short Ribs, and/or Eye of Round Roast. Pork Roasts are various cuts from the pork shoulder. Roast weights range from 2 – 3 pounds.
Roasting chickens are raised in the French Label Rouge tradition, meaning it is true free-range (unlimited freedom), fed at least 75% cereals, meets environmental standards for chickens, and are harvested around 81 days of age. Weights range from about 3 to 3.5 pounds.
The cost is based on the plan selected. A non-refundable deposit reserves your share. The balance is due at the first pick-up, or you may choose to pay a monthly amount at each pick-up. Monthly payment plans carry an additional cost, typically $5. We accept cash, check, or debit card.

Our All Natural Beef CSA provides the opportunity to buy meat at a great price AND receive it in quantities that fit a regular-sized refrigerator/freezer. Each plan includes only Walnut Hills Farm Certified Natural Beef.
Our shares have changed due to changing market conditions and we now only offer a 3 month plan. The Three Month Plan is a great all beef plan that offers 3 distributions. This is a great way to start and try an all Beef CSA. Please note that individual distributions will contain different cuts from different cattle, and therefore portion sizes and weights will vary from month to month.
