Our Chicken and Egg CSA
Forever And Always Homestead is offering a chicken and egg CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) for 2017. It will operate similar to a vegetable CSA simply instead of vegetable you will receive chicken and eggs. If you are not familiar with a CSA it is where you are able purchase a “share” from a local farmer. Our CSA share will run for 26 weeks from May through November. We will be offering three different CSA options for 2017.

- Half CSA membership – Our Half CSA members will receive 13 chickens and 13 dozens eggs. Half CSA members will receive an additional 5% off other farm product purchases. A Half CSA Membership is priced at $305 and requires a deposit of $76.
- Quarter CSA membership – Our Quarter CSA members will receive 7 chickens and 13 dozen eggs. Quarter CSA member will receive an additional 5% off other farm product purchases. A Quarter CSA Membership is priced at $191.50 and requires a deposit of $48.
If you do not want to commit to a CSA share we will be offering individual chickens for pre-order. Our chickens will be priced at $5/lb with our average broiler weighing 4 pounds. If you are interested in pre-ordering an individual chicken please let us know due to the limited amount and we know they will sell out quick.

What Members Will Receive
We raise multiple breeds of layer hens here at Forever And Always Homestead which will provide you will a variety of eggs in both color and size.
Our broiler chickens will be provided to our member as whole chickens. The breed we have chosen to raise is the Freedom Ranger breed. This breed grows slower than the typical Cornish Cross breed which makes it a more flavorful chicken for you.
