Frequent Buyers Discount Program

Are you a fan of our pasture raised poultry, forest raised pork and 100% grassfed black angus beef?  Love a good deal, but don’t have the space or need for a whole hog or half cow?  Would you like to get a 10% bonus on every purchase from our farm?  Our new Frequent Buyers Discount Program might be just the solution for you!  Here’s how it works:

  1. Shares cost $100 each per month, and you can buy just one or as many as you like.
  2. We’ll bill you electronically via Square at the first of each month for $100 (no additional fees will be added).
  3. You’ll receive a 10% bonus ($10) each month for each share, no strings attached.  This stretches your buying power by $10 every month!
  4. Use your share however you like, on whatever products we currently have in stock.
  5. You can use all accrued credits at one time, once a month, or however you choose.  We’re flexible!
  6. Pickup your goodies at any farmer’s market, on the farm (by appointment) or via free delivery (restrictions apply).
  7. If you go over your share amount in a three month period, we’ll simply collect the difference at the normal retail price.
  8. Each share you sign up for will last three months, costing a total of $300 that will be good for $330 in farm credit.
  9. You can stop and restart anytime after your three months are up, or just sign up again to keep the savings going all year long.  Jump on board at anytime to start saving!

The fine print:

  • If using a farmer’s market to collect your goodies, products must be picked up at the same location each month for record keeping purposes.
  • You can choose from any products currently in stock (sorry, no rain checks).
  • All credits must be used by the end of the third month.  Any share credits not used will expire at that time and are not redeemable.
  • You can pre-order online using our order form, or simply show up and let us know what you would like (you’ll be limited to what we have on hand if at a farmer’s market).  For large distributions in excess of $100 retail at a farmers market, a pre-order via our website or thru email is REQUIRED.
  • Credits can be applied to regular retail pricing and discounted retail items.  They can not be used towards bulk purchases (half and whole animals, chicken CSA, etc.).

Ready to sign up?  Simply e-mail us at info@simpsonfamilyfarm.com with your name, e-mail address you would like to be billed at and how many shares you would like to have.  Lastly, let us know your preferred pickup location each month from the list below and we’ll take care of the rest:

  • Broad Ripple Farmer’s Market (May-October)
  • Bloomington Community Farmer’s Market (May-October)
  • Indy Winter Farmer’s Market (November-April)
  • At the farm by appointment (year round).
  • Free Home & Office Delivery (year round; limited to Greenwood, South Indy, Center Grove, Bargersville, etc – email for details on delivery location or read our delivery area)

2018 Chicken CSA

Welcome to our 2018 Chicken CSA information page.  We have quite a few changes for the CSA this year, so please read carefully!

Logistically, the chicken program is mostly going to work the same this year as in years past, albeit with three pickup dates (June 14th, July 16th and October 8th) instead of four pickup dates.

One big and positive change is that we are switching to a certified organic grain for all of our poultry this year.  For years, we have been committed to only using non-gmo grains which has set us apart from other local area farms.  But we are taking things a step further this year, because we care about the health of both our customers and our environment!

We are moving away from the various “size packages” and multiple pricing structures from years past. The price per pound will be the same across the board for everyone, regardless of how many chickens you pre-order. So here is how ordering, deposits and payments will work:

  • Chickens will be priced to the CSA at a flat 10% discount off of our retail pricing (moving up from $4.99 to $5.49/lb), so the CSA price will be $4.95/lb.
    • This will equate to roughly a $3-$5 increase per chicken from last year.
    • The cost increase is mostly related to the increased production costs by switching to organic grain.
  • You can order as few or as many chickens as you would like (from 15-40) in increments of 5.
    • Our goal is to raise slightly larger chickens than last year, so please keep that in mind when ordering if you are on the fence about ordering 5 more or 5 less.
    • Our average whole chicken weight this year will be between 5-5.5lbs.
  • You’ll place a $10 deposit per chicken now to lock in your spot (via a check or PayPal), then pay the difference at each pickup for birds taken that day.
    • There will not be one big single balloon payment in May like years past.
    • Example: You order 30 chickens and place a $300 deposit now. You’ll pickup 10 chickens on each of the three dates. When you arrive we’ll grab 10 birds, add up all the weights and take $4.95/lb x the total weight. We will then subtract the deposit for the birds you are taking that day (in this case 10 birds x $10 deposit = $100) from the total and collect the difference. So you’ll pay something each time you come to the farm.
  • You will still get to save 10% on any other items you purchase on farm the day of pickup, including beef, pork and additional poultry.
  • If you choose 30 or fewer chickens you can choose to get all of your CSA birds in two trips, or one trip if you choose 20 or fewer birds.

The chickens come whole, or you can elect to have them cutup for a small fee.  Simply let us know how many of your chickens you would like to have cutup at each delivery date.  Note that each chicken will be cut into the following pieces and placed into one bag: 2 breast, 2 thighs, 2 drumsticks, 2 wings, 1 frame. You can then separate your pieces to fit your needs and freeze them. Cost per cutup chicken is $2.00/each.

Poultry orders will be picked up fresh, at the farm from 3:00-6:00 p.m. on the following dates:

Thursday, June 14th

Monday, July 16th

Monday, October 8th
