Chestnut Farms offers an all natural, locally raised meat CSA. Shares include grass-fed beef, pastured pork, lamb and poultry and can be customized for individual preferences. Shares available in 10, 15, 25 and 50 lb per month increments.

Chestnut Farms is a family-owned and operated 106 acre farm in the heart of MA. We raise all natural, heritage breed, hormone and anti-biotic free meats. This includes grass-fed Hereford-Devon beef grown exclusively on pasture and hay to ensure a rich, wonderful flavor and high levels of Omega-3. Our York, Hampshire and Duroc pigs are pastured and petted while being fed only a natural grain diet - never any garbage. Our lambs are born in the spring pasture where they are allowed to nurse and frolic with their mothers. We also raise our own offer pastured poultry including chicken and turkey.

Chestnut Farms offers shares in our meat CSA. Each month members receive a mix of "daily" (ground beef, stew meat, bacon, whole chicken, sausage) cuts and "prime" cuts (steaks, chops, boneless chicken breasts).
