At Lakey Farm we have four different ways to purchase our meat products

4. Visit us at a farmers' market and purchase your meat on the day
ABOUT THE CSA
We sell shares in our farm produce at a fair price that you agree to over a 12month purchase agreement.
We will supply your share each month to be collected from a location near you. The CSA in return will ensure our financial security and allow us to better manage our animals and continue to make environmental improvements to our farm.
The options are all offered on a minimum 12-months subscription, payable monthly, bi-annually in advance, or annually in advance, with discounts for the bi-annual (5%) or annual payments (10%) - please contact us via our "Contact" link if you wish to make advance payments. All payments due the Monday week prior to each pick up date. Each box will include the usual variety of cuts across the animal, and we endeavour to meet requests for particular exclusions and extras where possible.
There will be 15% prime cuts, 40-45% secondary/slow cook cuts and 40-45% mince and sausages. This is the actual breakdown of an animal carcass. It is our endeavour for all consumers to be sustainable about their meat consumption.
