Pastured Pork to You: Details on 4505 Meats' CSA Box

On The Office this week, resident lump Kevin shared his New Year's resolution to eat more vegetables ― an easy task, since his veggie intake last year was exactly zero. We're thinking Kevin is probably not from San Francisco. In an area where produce is abundant, fresh, and downright irresistible, the Bay Area carnivore is more likely to adopt a nuanced resolution involving the sourcing or treatment of their meat. If that sounds like you, then 4505 Meats has your number with two CSA pastured pork pickups, this Friday and Saturday, Jan. 28 and 29.

As you probably know, pastured pork sits on the top shelf of humane treatment. Meat labeled organic or free range often comes up short in the ethical department, as the “outdoors” the animals are exposed to can be a concrete slab and their exercise time may be minimal. But 4505's CSA is packed with porcine products from Riverdog Farm, where the pigs spend all their time outdoors on an open pasture. They eat grass, bask in the sunshine, and breathe fresh air.
