Our FARM SHARE program

Simplify your life without compromising your family's health.

 


Our FARM SHARE PROGRAM (CSA) is membership to our market garden where members receive the very best of our produce on a weekly basis July through September. 

  


Community supported agriculture strengthens our a sense of community through local markets; connecting you to your food and bringing our community members together for a common good.


If relocating our food system, contributing to regional food security, and significantly reducing your food miles is important to you then a CSA is the way to go!


What are YOUR benefits

Enjoy unparalleled flavor from organic produce picked that day.

Members get the cream of the crop before anyone else.
 

Abundant Harvest Boxes are packed full with heirloom veggies and culinary herbs that are well below market value. Making them incredibly cost effective.  Members receive access to specialty crops and special buys throughout our season that include…

Access to early season crops like microgreens and spinach before anyone else.

We will hold high demand produce in peak season for member-only pick-ups.

Canning boxes, 25% off on picking cucumbers and tomatoes.

End of season ‘Gleaning’ event invite. Come out to the farm to help us collect and divide up the last of our fall storage crops between each member participant.


The FUN part of a FARM SHARE membership is discovering and experimenting with new veggies and recipes; we provide recipes and tips in each weeks Harvest Box.


What's in YOUR Harvest Box

Can YOU Choose what's in the Harvest Box

  We know not everyone is a fan of every vegetable and we want to accommodate individuals with dietary preferences or would prefer lots of a few specific crops rather than our diverse Harvest Boxes.

Get in touch and we can work together to get you exactly what you need.


We will also have a swap box with us at our market pick-up locations; we have one simple rule...

A vegetable for a vegetable

Meaning your 3 tomatoes can be exchanged for 1 bag of beans or 1 head of lettuce

Fresh and delicious food direct from our farm to your table!

TERMS & CONDITIONS

  

A CSA is a partnership between the member and the farmer, based on mutual respect.

COMMUNICATION POLICY

When you subscribe you are agreeing to open and read all email communications, these communications could include important notices and emergency delivery changes. Be sure we have your correct contact details and let us know of any changes as soon as possible.


CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS

The $100 member deposit is non-refundable. Reflecting the risk that the farm takes to plan, purchase, plant, tend, and harvest a pre-determined number of member harvest boxes.

Once the season starts we cannot offer cancellations or refund unless there is someone on the waiting list willing to take over the membership and the remaining weekly boxes. There is a 2 box value cancellation fee, depending on which option you have subscribed to; $30 - 40.
