About Our CSA

What is a CSA?

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture, where community members sign up for a weekly “share” of seasonal produce, and the farmer delivers them to a predetermined location. CSAs provide you with a direct relationship with your farmer, and they are a way for you to get incredibly

fresh and local produce each week. By purchasing a CSA share with us, you support us in our crop planning and production and provide us with up-front funds that we need to purchase supplies in the spring! Not to mention we also love to have a direct relationship with our supporters!

CSA Details

Our CSA will run for 15 weeks, from the first week of July into October. Each weekly share averages out to $30/week, for a total CSA cost of $450. In the early summer, the shares are not as plentiful and may be valued under $30, as many vegetables have not fully matured yet. However, we make up for this later in the season, where your share is valued at over $30. In the end, it evens out to $30 each week.

What Vegetables Can I Expect?

Early shares (the first few weeks of July), could include lettuce, spinach, rhubarb, pea shoots, peas, arugula, kale, herbs, radishes and swiss chard.

As the summer progresses, the variety in your share will grow and could include carrots, beets, fresh beans, green onions, potatoes, tomatoes, cucumbers, edible flowers, herbs, zucchini, patty pans, onions, garlic and cabbage.

Fall shares will focus on fresh greens, herbs, edible flowers, root vegetables, winter squash, and pie pumpkins.

What Are The Risks Associated With A CSA?

We will work incredibly hard to provide you with a weekly share for 15 weeks, and we grow a diverse variety of crops to help offset any losses, but farming is risky business. Sometimes crops can fail from pests, diseases, or weather, and with your purchase, you are agreeing to take that risk on with us.

CSA Payment Details

CSA shares are typically paid for when you reserve your spot. If you are unable to pay the amount at a single time, please contact us about setting up a payment plan!

What If I Am Away?

Most CSA members will have a friend, neighbour, or family member who will pick up their CSA share during the weeks they are away.

Help Us Keep A Low Environmental Footprint!

We try very hard to minimize our use of plastic. We will ask you to bring your own bags to pick up your CSA, which will reduce the amount of plastic we need to use.

We are so excited to grow your vegetables this season! Please let us know if you have any questions about our CSA!
