What is a CSA?
A CSA is a relationship of mutual support and commitment between local farmers and community members who pay in advance for future product. By joining the CSA, you become part of the Shepherd’s Way Farm family, enjoying award winning artisan cheese while supporting diversity, sustainability, and small scale farming innovation. Your subscription makes a tangible difference – it helps keep a small, family farm rolling! You help care for the flock, and sustain handcrafted, on-farm artisan cheese production.
TRADITIONAL CHEESE CSA
What do you get?
Traditional Cheese CSA members will receive a monthly cheese share made up of an assortment of Shepherd’s Way Farms cheese 1 ½ pounds (usually 4-6 pieces). Often includes our more familiar cheeses -- Friesago, Big Woods Blue, Shepherd’s Hope, Hidden Falls. And, our limited edition Burr Oak and Sogn. Our CSA members were the first to ever try these two! In the spring, members received our hard-to-find seasonal Morcella, a bloomy rind sheep milk cheese with morel mushrooms.
Members have also received selections not available in stores -- a fresh sheep milk cheese (similar to chevre), Adobo Cheese Spread, Country French Spread, Shepherd’s bonbons (fresh vanilla cheese rolled in chocolate), traditional whey ricotta and more. Members are also invited to exclusive member events at the farm.
