from Hilhof Dairy in Hershey Michigan

Hilhof Dairy, William and Connie Straathof have been operating their small dairy just outside of Grand Rapids for many years. Their cows are completely grass-fed and organic.

The Straathof's believe that "healthy soil produces healthy food, and healthy food produces healthy animals and people.”

Milk is distributed in 1/2 gallon or quart glass containers. There is a $2 deposit for each glass container.

How it Works

If you choose, you'll be sent a reminder each week when our webstore is open. Log onto your account and purchase or reserve what you need. We'll have it for you at CSA later that week!
Offered: Whole, 2%, Skim and Chocolate

Pork Shares

719a160ae6b9ddbc5c0e5d4051a9e011.jpg.gif

Full Pig: *$4.00/lb hanging weight with a $100 deposit

Half Pig Deposit: *$4.25/lb hanging weight with a $50 deposit

 
  • Antibiotic and Hormone Free

  • Raised on Pasture with Room to Roam

  • Fed our Veggie Scraps and locally sourced Non-GMO feed


How it Works

By paying for a deposit, you are asking us to grow a pig for your family. When the pigs are taken to the butcher in mid-October, we'll let you know the "hanging weight."

You then pay based on the “hanging weight” of the animal, which is different from the final weight of pork cuts you will receive. All meat will be frozen.

Price per pound hanging weight includes basic processing and delivery to your home. *Smoking and extra processing (bratwursts or breakfast sausage) is an additional cost.

If you think you're interested, please click on the link on the left and we'll guide you through how this works. Including:

  • How much freezer space do I need?
  • What cuts will I receive?
  • What's the final cost look like?

Offered for Summer Shares Only

  • Antibiotic and Hormone Free

  • Cage-Free
