Box Notes:

Peach season is winding down. The Fairtime variety is our last of the stone fruit for the year. This may be our last week for melons in the veggie boxes as the season is coming to end. The forecast for later this week is temperatures in the mid-70s which will be perfect for the 29th annual Hoes Down Harvest Festival this Saturday held at Full Belly Farm, our neighbors a mile down the road from Riverdog Farm.

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

Please contact the farm at 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 the cooler the day of delivery or return it by the following CSA delivery day.

Riverdog farm pork 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 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.
