Box Notes:

The beets are back! The tops and roots are edible. Cook the beet greens as you would spinach. Boil, roast or steam the beetroots. You can also cook them in beet chocolate cake! Here is our recommended link to the beet chocolate cake recipe: http://www.davidlebovitz.com/moist-chocolate-beet-cake-recipe-nigel-slater/.

This recipe is shared by former Chez Panisse pastry chef David Lebovitz’s in his blog. He features the recipe from the cookbook Tender by Nigel Slater.


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 it by the following CSA delivery day.

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.
