You don't have to have a monthly share to purchase meat, eggs, cheese, honey, syrup and jam from Lewis Waite Farm. The monthly distribution dates over the winter will be: December 18, January 22, February 26, March 18, April 29, and May 20.
Here are the instructions for ordering:
Ordering and payment happen individually -- you'll put in an order with the farm directly, pay them, and they'll deliver to us at the CSA site. Yay! Orders come frozen and packed in insulated boxes with a mid-afternoon delivery. Our site coordinators, will be running abbreviated CSA distributions on delivery Tuesdays in front of the Freeze Peach -- as usual -- so please make sure that when you order, you are available to pick up your order on the Tuesday schedule for distribution before 7:00pm.
Lewis Waite Farm has partnered with other local farmers to develop a larger site to place orders through that involves all of the above mentioned foodstuffs (not just pork/beef) at -- http://www.csapasturedmeatandpoultry.com -- all ordering should happen there.

After you create your own login, you'll use it on subsequent visits to the site in place of Hellgate/Astoria. You will not be able to place an order until you've created your own login.
Once you are logged in with your own username, you can page through the product lists and start making a list!
Orders must be place by the order cutoff date for distribution on the delivery date.
Upon placing an order, you will receive an email order acknowledgment displaying all the items ordered with estimated amount based on the average size/weight of items. If you do not get an order acknowledgment, your order was not properly placed and you should try again (or contact us for help).
If you are paying by PayPal you will not be invoiced until the order is packed. Invoices are sent out based on size/weight of items and availability (occasionally ordered items are unavailable at the time of packing in which case you will not be charged for unavailable items) usually the night before or the day of distribution.
If you are paying by check, you will bring a check to the distribution site on the Tuesday of distribution made out in the amount owed to "CSA Pastured Meat and Poultry". On site volunteers or the site coordinator will collect check payments and mail them off to the farm.
