Shares are available on a first-come first-serve basis. If you have any questions regarding the farm, Community Supported Agriculture, available shares or the waiting list for 2018, please CONTACT US today; thank you.
The FULL PRODUCE SHARE is offered at $350 for the season and includes five to ten types of vegetables weekly. By late July, this amounts to a 1/2 bushel of produce per share per week and is more than suitable for a couple or young family. Vegetarians or large families would enjoy two shares. As a shareholder, you will receive sixteen weeks of fresh produce throughout the summer growing season beginning throughout the final weeks of June. Items vary week to week and may include spinach, lettuces, radish, green onions, kale, chard, peas, broccoli, cabbage, zucchini, beans, garlic, tomatoes, carrots, corn, beets, peppers, eggplant, onions, potatoes, sunflowers and more... Storage tips and uses are made available online each week to all produce shareholders through an emailed newsletter. You can also like us on facebook to learn about farm events and recipe ideas. Pick-up for all shares is at the farm any time after 1pm on either Tuesdays or Fridays. The final harvest and baskets of the season include parsnip, turnip, Brussels sprouts, winter squashes and more and are provided on the Friday before Thanksgiving weekend with an Open House at the farm for all members, their family and friends.
The HALF PRODUCE SHARE provides members with vegetables every other week throughout the growing season through to Thanksgiving - eight baskets in total. This is an ideal option for those with limited time or for those new to CSA and the cycle of seasonal bounty available from the garden. Available for $225, it provides the same variety of vegetables as the Full Produce Share and begins during the first week of July.
The DAY TRIPPER PRODUCE SHARE gives you the opportunity to plan for three 'vacation' dates throughout the season. Perfect for shareholders who are unable to arrange for friends or family to pick up the basket while away, the share is $315.00 for thirteen out of sixteen weeks from late June through Thanksgiving.
For the fourth season, the FULL PRODUCE WORK SHARE is being made available once again for those who would like to participate in the weekly workings of the farm. Your $150.00 payment and commitment to pay the remaining portion of your produce share in volunteer labour will provide you with sixteen weeks of vegetables. You will be required to work for two and a half hours per week on your pick-up day (Tuesday or Friday) from 10:30am to 1pm and be available from the last week of June through the week before Thanksgiving. The work can be physically challenging and repetitive, however, you will be greatly rewarded with fresh air, fresh ideals and fresh food. Come grow with us..!
