Box Notes: The first rains came on Friday!! Over the weekend we received an inch of rain! This is a substantial amount of rain for the start of an early rain season. The moisture will enhance all the winter crops and may reduce the number of irrigation sets at least this week. Hooray for rain!!


We have Giant White Pumpkins available this year: to decorate your front porch, to make special events festive, or display at your local school or business/place of work. They run about 50 to 100 lbs each and cost $1 per pound. Please contact the farm to place your order for the Giant White Pumpkins.


Whole Chickens and Pastured Pork: Bacon, Sausage, Ham, and Pork Cuts available year round.

Please contact the farm at csa@riverdogfarm.com for pricing and to place your order. The meat orders are delivered to CSA sites frozen in a cooler. The farm retrieves the empty coolers from the CSA site the week after delivery. Please take your meat order out of the cooler the day of delivery or return the cooler the following week to the CSA delivery site.

Riverdog farm pigs and chicken are certified organic animals raised on diets of certified organic corn/soy/triticale, produce culls, alfalfa, rye grass, clover, Three Twins Ice Cream overruns, and whey from Cowgirl Creamery. The meat is not labeled organic because the processing facilities are not yet certified organic. We are working with our processors to have the facilities become certified organic so that we can label the packaged meat as certified organic.
