CSA Product Guarantees

Harmony JACK Farms guarantees our products are raised on certified organic pasture and are kept on pasture year round, to the extent that weather allows. Striving to raise the healthiest, happiest and most natural animals possible, we use techniques that minimize risk and maximize production with breed choice and grazing practices. Our beef is exclusively grass-fed/grass-finished. Our steaks and roast have 10-15% less fat than typical grocery store beef, resulting in more meat for your money. Our chickens receive whole grain and forage on pasture. We believe we offer the best quality, most nutritious, uniquely delicious meat around, and we are constantly seeking to improve our environment, pastures, and products.

Harmony JACK Farms products are based on seasonal availability and productivity. Our animals are not fed growth hormones or stimulants and are not finished on grain or in a feedlot environment, therefore exact weights and portions are subjected to nature and cannot be guaranteed. As a result, no guarantee can be offered on the exact amount or type of meat that you will receive. By participating in a CSA, you are supporting the local farmer and more equitable food distribution. Your food dollars help create a more environmentally sound and economically healthy community.

Farm Visits and Tours

We welcome customers and perspective customers to visit the farm, meet the animals, and enjoy the scenery. We can best accommodate your visits by scheduling your visit; please call to arrange a time. Please leave your pets at home or keep them in the car at all times, so as to not put any of the farm animals or property at risk.

Processing

Due to regulations that prohibit small farms from selling meat directly to the customer, Harmony JACK Farms meat CSA sells shares of a live certified organic steer to its customers. (This is not necessary with our chickens or eggs). The steer will be custom raised according to standards listed in an agreement. We will provide the service of arranging for processing. Each steer will be divided into shares among the CSA members, based on packages ordered. Customers can opt to receive information about their steer each month. Sometimes retail wrapped USDA meat may be included in a monthly pick-up, based on availability.

If a customer prefers USDA inspected meat, it is available for a higher price (due to higher processing costs), but not currently through the CSA. We have the necessary Oregon Department of Agriculture certification so that you may purchase Certified Organic USDA Harmony JACK Farms beef at the farm or have it shipped to you. It can be sold by the piece or as a package. Please contact us if you would like to make a purchase.

Pick-Up

Bring your cooler to Harmony JACK Farms the first Tuesday of each month.

Pick-up runs from 4:30-7 pm. Any meat not picked up by 7 pm will be returned to freezer storage and will incur a $30 handling fee. Please make arrangements in advance if you cannot make it to the pick-up location.
