Summer CSA Program
In 2019, we will be offering a 20-week (June-Oct) subscription-based, farm fresh vegetable box program for Perth and McDonalds Corners area. This offering will be packed with a diversity of fresh, colourful, flavourful, and unique produce in addition to our favourite kitchen staples such as carrots, onions, beets, salad greens.
Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program is what keeps us a float with seed-money in the spring, a reliable production plan, and a relationship where you share in the risks and education of what each season growing offers. This is essential to building a vibrant local community where people are connected to the land-farmer-eater relationship.
You get your value in this program by:
-Being our farm’s #1 customers and enjoying peak-ripeness produce all summer long.
-Making a difference in your community: supporting ecological farming as a career, lowering your carbon footprint, preserving farmland, reducing your exposure to chemicals, and more!
-Pick up your share during the week and take off for the weekend; convenient pick-up location in Perth outside Cafe Bean at the Old Shoe Factory, 1 Sherbooke St. East.
Two Share Options:
Full Share, 20 weeks, $600, weekly pick up
-For eaters who cook/juice with lots of veggies and love variety.
Half Share, 10 weeks, $300, bi-weekly pick up
-For veggie lovers who like lots of flexibility and/or are looking to add some seasonal produce to their plates.
Pick up on Tuesdays, June- Oct, in Perth at the Old Shoe Factory (outside Cafe Bean) or on Farm in Elphin, ON.
Winter Veg Share
Our Winter Vegetable Share program is a convenient way to enjoy fresh vegetables in your diet all year long. We grow our winter crops throughout the summer and store them over the snowy months to share with you. This is a Share program instead of a traditional CSA program because we will buy in crop from neighbouring organic farmers to fill in gaps due to crop failure or to increase diversity in our winter diet.
Veggies include: Cold-hardy greens such as arugula, broccoli, kale, spinach, mustards, and storable squash, onions, garlic, dried tomatoes, beans, and root vegetables such as potatoes, radishes, beets, and carrots comprise this mixed-vegetable package. We even include some of our traditional sauerkraut, kimchi, and Elphin Gold maple syrup made right here on the farm.
Delivered bi-weekly for 10 pick-ups from October through to End of Februrary, let our vegetables nourish and inspire you to beat the winter woes!
Registration for Winter 2018/19 Shares is now CLOSED. Please check back Spring 2019 for updates on our new Winter Veg program. Thank you for supporting our farm.
