A group of upstate family farms make monthly deliveries to eligible Chelsea CSA shareholders. Available products include a variety of meats, eggs, breads, grains, and jams.
How To Order – You must first sign a separate contract - download the form here and drop it off at distribution or send it to Tiffany at gro.a1371681406scaes1371681406lehc@1371681406stcud1371681406orpla1371681406iceps1371681406. Once the contract is accepted, you will notified by phone or email and then you may place an order for one of the monthly delivery dates. Delivery dates for 2013 are 6/18, 7/30, 9/3, 10/1, 10/29 and 11/26.
The best way to order is by using the website. The first time you use the site you will be asked to set up a user profile, enter Chelsea CSA as your pick-up location. Distribution of special products is the last Tuesday of every month, and the order deadline is the Thursday prior to delivery. Once your order has been filled, you will be notified of the exact amount owed. Approved members may be required to volunteer at the distribution of Lewis Waite products two times during the delivery season (volunteer hours are 4-5:30pm and 5:30-7pm). This is separate from your regular CSA volunteer hours.

Filling Your Order – If there is a question or problem filling an order, the appropriate farm contacts you to discuss your special requests or to offer substitutions if certain items are not available. If you have specific questions, please call or email the appropriate farm. To know how much you owe, the lamb, kid, chicken, pork and beef packages must be weighed. Each of the farms is a separate business, so each must calculate their total and then they will add your total for you. The farms will notify you of the total amount of your order by email.
Picking Up Your Order – Approved members pay for and pick up their orders on distribution date between 4 pm and 7pm at the distribution site (Hudson Guild, 441 W 26 St. during the season). Checks are made out to Pastured Meat and Poultry and are collected at distribution. No order will be released without payment. Meat is delivered frozen in insulated containers. There is no storage of meat at the distribution site.
If you are unable to pick up your order, you are still responsible for and still owe for the meat you ordered. If an order is not picked up before 7pm on the delivery date, the meat coordinator must remove the meat from the premises. No meat or poultry will be left at the distribution site when distribution is over.
Mid-June to mid-November deliveries are at Hudson Guild Elliott Center on the third Tuesday of each month.
Non-Veggie Season Distribution
Winter and spring deliveries are once a month on the third Tuesday of each month. Off season deliveries will be hosted in member homes to be announced. Please note the delivery address on order confirmation and invoice emails!
