What is a CSA?
Over the last 20 or more years, community supported agriculture has grown in popularity as a way to more closely connect with local farmers in order to buy seasonal produce and humanely raised Meats. The basics are: Old World Farms offers a certain number of shares to the general public consisting of set amount of meat, available for pickup at the farm or designated pickup location each month. Each person or family who signs up becomes a member of the CSA and
helps to offset the upfront and subsequent cost throughout the upcoming season. CSA membership is a great way to support a local Farm while learning about farming practices animal breeds and even new recipes using food you may or may not be used to using. It is also an affordable way to get local organic grass-fed Meats without needing the freezer space.
CSA Share Policies
Picking Up Your Share
Our CSA will run a total of 12 months upon sign up. Pick up will occur on the first and last Saturday of the month at Midland Farmers Market. We will also be arranging pick up the first and last Sunday at our farm.
Here are the addresses for pick up Email time and days you will pick up 48 hours before set dates.
Midland Farmers Market
825 East Main Street
Midland MI 48640
Old World Farms
13335 Dempsey Rd
Saint Charles MI 48656
With limited time to attend to farm and personal matters, as well as continually changing freezer space, it is expected that our members pick up on time each month. In the event that you cannot pick up your share at the arranged time, please contact us at.
We understand that things in life happen and we'll do our best to accommodate, however, unless other arrangements have been made with old world farms, if a share is not picked up for more than one month, the share content may be fortified back to Old World Farms without refund.
Old world Farms takes all the measures possible to ensure the health and safety of our animals, but there are no guarantees in farming. At the core of the CSA is the idea that members support their farmers by sharing in the inherent risks of agriculture (poor weather, disease, predation and so on). Old world Farms will work in good faith to fulfill each month's share.
We accept all forms of payment, however credit cards will incur a service charge of 4% to cover the fees access to buy the various card companies. Payment can occur either up front, or into a course of two payments. Please contact with any questions or concerns around payment of CSA share.

We currently only offer beef shares at this time. We have three different sizes of shares available. You will get an array of steaks, roasts, and ground beef.
