As Columbia’s first and only in-town sustainable farm, we strive to create an convenient place to receive local produce. To further our goal of providing fresh healthy food to our community, we are offering an opportunity for our supporters to become more involved with our efforts through a Community Supported Agriculture program (CSA). Here is how it works: Interested consumers purchase a share in our CSA at the beginning of the season, and in return they receive a share of seasonal produce each week throughout the farming season. By buying in advance directly from us, you know exactly where your food dollars are going. Our CSA share is ideal for an individual or a couple who loves eating veggies or a small family.
We have two types of CSA programs available to sign up for: The Fall Crop CSA and a New Microgreen CSA!!
Fall Crop CSA: mid October- mid December (8 week period, exact dates TBA)
Expected Produce Availability is: Lettuce, Kale, Collards, Radish, Beets, Spinach, Arugula, MicroGreens (Sunflower, Snow Pea, Radish, Arugula, Mustard, Nasturtium, Watercress, Broccoli, Kale

Irish Dexter is a rare heritage breed of cattle that produces high quality lean meat that is well marbled and tends to be darker with exceptional flavor profiles. These cattle were raised on Eric McClam’s (City Roots co-founder) family farm in Lake City, SC. They have been raised to maturity by Will Altman of Righteous Ranch and are hormone free and grass fed.
There are only two purchase options – half or whole cow.
One Beef Cow is approximately 300-350 pounds (hanging weight).
· The hanging weight price for a whole beef is $5.50 per pound.
· $500 Deposit
½ Beef Cow is approximately 150-175 pounds (hanging weight).
· The hanging weight price for a half beef is $5.75 per pound.
· $250 Deposit
*The hanging weight is the weight after the animal has been slaughtered, insides removed, and blood drained. The cut-up process begins and this is where you will end up with approximately 75% of the hanging weight. Various cuts included but not limited to:
· NY Strip, Ribeye, Filet Mignon, Flank Steak, Skirt Steak, Sirloin Steak, Hanger Steak, Roast, Chuck, Ribs, Soup Bones, Ground Beef, Stew Meat etc.
