Meat or Fish CSA serving Orange County?

Does anyone know of a meat or fish CSA (Community Supportable Agriculture – see http://morningsongfarm.com/default.as... ) with a drop-off or delivery in Orange County – especially near Costa Mesa? A few months ago, I joined a CSA (fruits and vegetables) through a farm down in Rainbow (Fallbrook) in San Diego County, and have been very happy with the model - is there any equivalent for meat and/or fish? I’d love to see something that contained a variety, in a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly format, at a fair price, delivered in a format that my little freezer can handle. And I wouldn’t mind having to commit for a quarter or even a year, if I know it’s going to be worth it.

The only thing I have discovered is through a farm in San Juan Capistrano – but one must buy 25 pound ‘shares’ (don’t have that much freezer space!), it’s all beef (albeit organic, grass-fed, etc.), and it runs about $10.50 a pound, even though approximately half of each share is just ground beef (probably trim rather than chuck, but still...) - sounds a bit exorbitant for me.

And if there is no such thing – who would be the best purveyors to pitch one to?
