Default Bay Area Meat CSAs

For paleo types in the SF Bay Area, there are a couple of grassfed/pasture raised meat CSAs here that provide a package of mixed meat monthly.

I just joined the Marin Sun Farms CSA, and receive my first package yesterday. For $120, I got 17 lbs of meat (about $7/lb), including 5 lbs of ground, 4 packages of steaks, 2 package of ribs, lamb sirloin, a huge london broil, and 4 goat chops. 2 of the latter I cooked up yesterday with white wine, shallots, and rosemary. I should have cooked 3, because my two kids tore through one in no time flat. Highly recommended.

There's a CSA style beef side available from Morris Grassfed:

A Berkeley meat club:

There used to be a Bay Area Meat CSA, but it appears to be inactive right now:

The CSA approach is slightly more expensive on a per-lb basis than a side of beef, but when you factor in the energy cost of dedicated cold storage and the benefit of getting different types of meat, it's a bargain, in my opinion.

I just saw this. Thanks for the heads up.

I'm out in Pleasanton. Up until about 4 or 5 months ago I was in Rohnert Park, just north of where it sounds like you're at. I failed to ever think of this, though I knew CSAs existed.

I'm actually in Oakland -- there's a CSA pickup in Berkeley.

The Marin Sun Farms thing hasn't been around that long, actually.

Shoot, I lost track of this thread again.

Kind of odd question.... but do you know of any place that sells Goat's milk in the bay area?

Do you train at CF Oakland with that crew or on your own/somewhere else?

You can get get goat's milk at Berkeley Bowl or Whole Foods. Or pretty much any of the granola health food shops in Berkeley.

I just googled and turned up this as well:

I train in my garage -- the folks at CFO are top notch, but I like the flexibility of the home gym. They do have a Sunday oly lifting clinic that I want to try someday soon.

Nice, thanks Arien. I may need to make a weekly trip into Berkeley soon for the Goat's milk. Tough to find at Whole Foods and I'm not sure they've got it at TJ's.

I'm also a home gymmer even though there's an affiliate in my town. Gotta hit up the CFO crew. I hear good things. Lots of good ones in the bay area. CFO, San Franc. One World etc.
