What exactly is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture (“CSA”) allows the Community to enjoy fresh vegetables and herbs grown and sold directly by the Farmer. The produce is most often harvested the day of the pick up guaranteeing quality and freshness grocery stores are unable to compete with.
How does the CSA work?
By signing up for CSA memberships during the first couple of months of the year the Community secures the income for the farmer to cover the initial costs of growing for the season. These initial costs include purchasing seeds, compost and other essential items to successfully grow food for the Community.
How much does it cost?
$400.00 for 16 weeks. Our CSA runs for 16 weeks and each week costs $25.00.
How can I purchase my CSA membership?
You can purchase your CSA membership on our sign up page over here
How can I pay?
You can pay by cash, cheque or via interac e-transfer.
When does the CSA start and end?
Our CSA starts the first week of June and ends the second week of October (weather dependent)
How does the CSA pick up work?
You can either pick up your box from our farm every Thursday between 3pm – 7pm OR at the Mission Farmers Market every Saturday between 9am – 1pm
Can I have my CSA box delivered?
Unfortunately delivery is not available this time around.
What can I expect in my CSA box?
The full list: asian greens, basil, beets, green beans, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, corn, cucumber, garlic, kale, kohlrabi, leek, onions, salad greens, snow/snap peas, bell pepper, potato, radish, rutabaga, tomatoes, japanese turnips, summer/winter squash.
These vegetables will appear at different times during the growing season but on average each box will contain two to four root vegetables, salad greens and a rotation of seasonal crops.
Are your vegetables organic?
ABSOLUTELY. We are organic/biodynamic certified.
How much can I expect to see in one box?
You will get $25.00 worth of vegetables in each box, enough to comfortably feed a small family of four or a couple that love to eat vegetables for a week.
What happens if I forget to pick up my box?
You will have the opportunity to pick up your box the following two days. If your box is not picked up by the third day, we will donate it to the Poor Clares or other establishments on your behalf.
