Hi there Angela!
Thanks for reading! When I get stuff I don’t want in my Full Belly Farm CSA box, I normally pass it on to one of my friends. At the drop-off site for my Mariquita Farm CSA box, there’s a trade box where members can trade out stuff they don’t want for something in the box. If there isn’t anything I like in the trade box, I just donate my item to the box.
I just ordered a half hog from Full of Life Farm for the first time but I was able to talk to the butcher and custom order how I wanted it broken down. He asked me if I wanted the skin, ears, tail, and fat and I told him I’d take everything. Since I’m also a member of Marin Sun Farms CSA, I can order extra items to get delivered with my monthly box and there are tons of different cuts/species to choose from.
Good luck and happy cooking!
