There’s more to CSAs than produce on the North Fork. For these feathery farms, it’s all about the birds. From eggs to chickens, ducks to game birds, these poultry-focused CSAs will fill all your breakfast, lunch and dinner desires.
If you are itching to try some of the more unique poultry items the Nork Fork has to offer, look no further than Feisty Acres.
Each month, you’ll receive a selection of eggs and meat from the farm.
“Members will have the opportunity to try — at least once — every bird and egg we offer at our farm and markets,” said Abra Morawiec, co-owner and operator. “Every month has a different combination of poultry, game birds, and eggs and can include quail, chukar partridge, French guinea fowl, heritage chicken, silkie chicken, heritage chicken eggs, heritage duck eggs and quail eggs.”
And if you are feeling even more adventurous, try the pickled quail egg share. Or make an awesome breakfast with one of their two egg shares.
Pick-ups can typically be done either at their farm in Southold or at Union Square Greenmarket on Wednesdays or Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket on Saturdays. The poultry and egg share is $500 for monthly selections June through November, including a Thanksgiving turkey.

What Goodale has isn’t exactly a CSA, but what they call a meal box. It’s like a farm-to-door grocery delivery each week, and you get to pick the items. Goodale sells its own pasture-raised chicken — ground, breast, sausage or whole — and chicken eggs right from the farm. Plus dairy like cheese and buttermilk, endless produce and prepared foods, too. The box comes in standard or large and there’s even a vegetarian option. The standard plan and vegetarian plan are $75 per week and feed two to four people, while the large plan is $100 per week and feeds four to six people.
