What is a CSA?

Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) is a model of food distribution that creates a personal connection between the customer and the farmer. Instead of purchasing vegetables from a store, you hire a farmer to grow your vegetables for you. In the winter/spring you purchase a share from the farm, and during the summer and fall you receive weekly selection of fresh vegetables.
Pre-purchasing your vegetables supports local farming by creating a dependable market to plan for. You are also sharing in the risk of farming: depending on the year, some crops might not do as well as others.

2017 Summer CSA Options & Pricing

CSA members can choose from 2 share sizes: The Full share and the Half share. They can also choose between a duration of 15 or 18 weeks. On average, the full share feeds 3-4 people and the half share feeds 1-2 people.
You have the option to change your share size during the summer. Please provide 2 weeks notice if you wish to make a change.

What vegetables will I receive?

The weekly selection varies depending on what’s in season, with 8-12 of the following vegetables offered each week:
Arugula, Basil, Beans, Beets, Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Chard, Cilantro, Corn, Cucumbers, Dill, Eggplant, Kale, Leeks, Lettuce, Onions, Parsley, Peas, Peppers, Potatoes, Radish, Spinach, Squash, Tomatoes, Turnips, Zucchini.
Share members can expect to receive 15-20% more vegetables over the season than they would receive at our farmers market prices.
Although we plant extra for the farmers market, should we have a shortage of something, supplying our CSA members is our first priority.

 Pick-up Times and Locations

CSA Pick ups are held on the farm at 700 McPhillips Road and at the Wolseley Farmers’ Market at Robert A. Steen Community Centre (980 Palmerston Ave.) on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-7 pm. Full-share pick ups are on Tuesdays and half-share pick ups are on Thursdays.
Pick ups are planned to begin in the second week of June, but an email is sent to you in June to confirm your exact first pick up date.
The pick-ups are ‘market style’, meaning that the vegetables are set out for you in a manner similar to at a supermarket. This way you are offered some choices as to what vegetables you take each week.

What to do I do if I miss a pick up?

If you can’t make a pick up we ask that you send someone in your place to pick up for you.  If you miss a pick up we ask that you come between 630-7  on another pick up day (either Tuesday or Thursday) and we’ll make sure you get plenty of veggies.  Because Half shares and Full shares are different harvest and we only harvest enough for the people picking up we can’t accommodate half shares picking up on Tuesday or Full shares picking up on Thursday unless it is after 630 to make up for a missed pick up.
