What is a CSA and how does it work?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture (although most people just refer to it as the “veggie box program”). You sign up for a membership during the first couple of months of the year which in turn secures the income needed to cover the costs of certain preliminary tasks prior to the season. These initial costs include purchasing seeds, compost, etc…
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?
We aim to start during the first week of June and wrap up around the second week of October, although it varies from year to year depending on the (crazy) weather patterns.
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?
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.
Each box will contain slightly different items from week to week depending on what is ready for harvest. We aim to provide salad greens in each box throughout the season.
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 (for a week) a small family of four or a couple that love to eat vegetables.
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.
