Avalon Acres Farm Winter CSA Program

This is a message from Avalon Acres for those of you interested in CSA Programs:

Hi Everyone,

We wanted to let you know about our Winter CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program available to you. We are a Christian company that prides itself on being a responsible steward of this earth. All our stuff is all natural, though we are not "certified organic.". We are focused on raising animals with no extra junk in minimally confined settings and with respect and dignity and humane treatment. Our veggies are raised with an emphasis on sustainable growing methods with minimal pesticide use. We try and use natural pest control methods wherever possible. Belonging to a CSA is a great way to support your local farmer and keep your food dollars in Tennessee. We also have an array of Amish preserved vegetables and fruits and expect to have a little fresh winter produce. Fanny Yoder and her daughters provide our Amish baked goods and they are absolutley amazing. All this is produced here in Tennessee.

On average, when you shop at Kroger, your food travels 1500 miles to get to your table and NINE cents of your dollar goes to the farmer... if you by from us the farmer recieves over FIFTY cents of every dollar and you get a much better tasting, fresher and healthier product. We have a weekly newsletter that helps you prepare your food and every new customer gets a complimentary Avalon Acres Cookbook of popular chicken recipes.

All the details are in the attached registration form. The WINTER schedule will start on Wednesday, Nov. 21st and Sunday Nov. 25th and will run for 10 deliveries EVERY OTHER WEEK (semi-weekly) with no breaks. This will wrap up the season in late March. We deliver to a wide variety of locations in and around Nashville, including the East Nashville area, Murfreesboro and Springhill. You can also check us out on the web at
There you will also find the Winter Registration Form and also a Frequently Asked Questions page and PDF document.

It was a rough year for us and we really need winter income. For this reason there is no "minimum order"... no need to buy a package or even have a standing order, necessarilly. We do prefer it, however, if you only want to make a smaller standing order or buy a few things from time to time, that's fine too. Make your food dollar count by supporting local growers and enjoy good food while knowing you are making a real difference in peoples lives.
