Victory Acres has had a CSA for the past 10 years. A lot has changed since that first year with an all volunteer team and 23 members in 2006.

  • We have had five different CSA managers in our past ten seasons at the farm. This year’s team featured Tom and Cindy Hauck, Terry Himelick, Ruth Alexander, Spencer Starke, Armila Francis, and interns from Indiana Wesleyan University and Taylor University.
  • In ten years, we’ve trained 55 interns and apprentices in the principles and application of small-scale sustainable agriculture. This year, we helped to train five new college interns.
  • We have had hundreds of volunteers, many teams, and several groups over these past ten years. This year our largest team included over 80 people!
  • In ten years, we have raised over 80 tons of delicious, naturally grown fruits and vegetables.
  • We have served 70 families through our share-a-share program, providing vegetables to families who cannot afford a CSA membership. This year, six different local families were blessed by this program.
  • In the past ten years, we have welcomed 18 ministry guests to Victory Acres for healing and recovery. We welcomed 4 guests this past season.
  • We are anticipating the opening of our long-awaited, Nehemiah Program House in early December 2015. This focused discipleship program for single men has been in development for nearly the past two years and is finally ready. The house will provide housing for up to four men.
  • We have paid off almost 60% of the original purchase price of the farm! We are on track for the farm to be paid for in the next ten years.

Dear Friends of Victory Acres,

We are pleased to introduce the all NEW Victory Acres Meat CSA coming in October 2015.

It's cost-effective way for you and your family to enjoy quality, great-tasting Victory Acres' grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and free-range chicken.

The concept of our Meat CSA is simple.
1. You sign up (six month commitment)
2. You pay just $60 per month for at least 10 lbs. of meat.
This will be a box of various cuts of beef, pork, and chicken based on what is available that month.
3. You can pick up your meat at one, convenient, monthly distribution time.
4. Enjoy the delicious meat!

It's Healthy
We raise our animals naturally. Our cattle eat a grass-based diet. Our pigs are free to roam and enjoy a mix of grain and vegetable scraps from our farm and from Taylor University's dining commons. Our chickens not locked up but are free to supplement their grain diet with grass and bugs. The result is leaner meat.

It's Affordable
We have been market testing this concept for the past few months, and we have had excellent feedback. Many people are not able to buy a 1/4 beef and store that much meat at one time, but at 10 lbs. a month and an average price of just $6.00/lb, it is affordable for everyone! With meat prices constantly changing (mostly going up) you are "locking in" your price for the next six months. It's a great deal!

It supports good work
You're probably already spending this money at the grocery store, but you're paying a lot more, and getting a lot less. When you sign up for Victory Acres' Meat CSA, you're getting 10 lbs. of beef, pork, or chicken for your freezer every month while also helping Victory Acres!  You'll be helping us in our non-profit mission to help guests in their recovery from addictions and life-challenges with money you're already spending. It truly is a win-win!

Ready to Sign up?
If you're ready to sign up, don't wait. Space is limited, and we anticipate a waiting list while we are still growing our supply of this great-tasting meat.

Fill out the information in our application, and send it back to us along with your first month's payment of $60. Then we'll be in touch with you to give you all of the details regarding pick up.

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions, and thank you for the opportunity to serve you and your family.

In Christian Love,
