What is a CSA?
A CSA is a relationship of mutual support and commitment between local farmers and community members who pay the farm an annual membershipfeetohelpcoverproductioncostsofthefarm.Inreturn, members receive a regular share of the production .

YSF proudly offers both fresh and aged pasteurized Artisanal Goat Cheeses. The most important part of our award winning cheeses is the exceptionally good milk our goats produce. We breed and raise Nubian goats, with occasional genetic crosses carefully selected for their naturally nutrient rich milk. Our herd browses pasture, cleans up invasive plant species in the woodland, and basks in the sun. Our goats also eat local hay and grains. We do not use hormones or antibiotics in the dairy herd.
AL AND CATHERINE RENZI make YSF cheeses using age-old pro- cesses borrowed from both French and Italian traditions. Our original recipes include farm-raised herbs, nuts, and honey. Each small batch is handmade, and never includes preservatives or anything artificial. We use only vegetable rennet and sea salt.
We love to select palette-pleasing trends to pair with local, fresh foods. CSA members receive email newsletters with tasting and cheese pair- ing notes so that you can enjoy all the good flavors of YSF.
