CSA PROGRAM

A weekly "Field-to-Table" experience

CSA stands for "Community Supported Agriculture". It is a mutually beneficial agricultural model between farmers and community that encourages less waste on the farm, more security in sales, and ensures that you, the customer, get to eat the most in-season produce we have to offer. It also gives you a chance to try new things you might not otherwise try. As farmers, it gives us an increased cash flow before our season starts when output costs are high, and we are busy purchasing all of the materials needed for the successful growing season ahead.

 

There is a lot of planning that goes into market gardening and the trends at market are always changing, a crop that we couldn’t grow enough of the year before might not have the same interest the following season and something we grew a smaller amount of thinking it wouldn’t sell ends up being the MVP (most valuable produce) of the season! The CSA models helps us by providing actual numbers to base our planning off of.

 As a CSA member, you are shareholder in our farm. You are buying into both the successes and failures of the farm. Sometimes crops do not grow as planned and other times they are extremely bountiful. When we have a successful and bountiful season you will see that reflected in your shares.

We will be offering three different shares this season for a total of 26 weeks of fresh produce. You do not have to sign up for all three, sign up for the one or ones you feel are a good fit for you and your family!

As a CSA member you ALWAYS get the first of things to ripen and will get produce you might not see at market and there are certain crops we grow exclusively for the shares. 

At this time, we only offer one size share. We find it to be a good amount of produce for a family of 2-4/weekly and for bigger families or big veggie eaters it is a good amount with other produce supplemented from your gardens, our gardens or other local producers. Weekly add-ons will be available as well!

 

Payment and pick up/delivery options

We ask for a 50% deposit to hold your spot when signing up and the remaining can be paid anytime before the first box goes out the doors. If a payment plan is something your family needs, please reach out privately and we will see what we can do! Delivery is available to for in-town (Owen Sound) ONLY and is an additional $5/week. Pick ups and delivery day TBD. Final Payments are due by May 1.
