How Our CSA Works

Home » How Our CSA Works

Otherwise known as Community Supported Agriculture, 2018 is our ninth year of running our CSA program. We started small with 30 shares in the first year and have grown to supply 100 families with certified organic vegetables from spring until fall.

This year we are continuing our CSA in its NEW format. The cost for the 2018 season is $500 and for that we will supply you with a total of $560 worth of Certified Organic vegetables of your own choice. Our farmers markets start up on Saturday May 5th but you can join our CSA program at any time during our farmers market season until December 22nd, 2018.

Many farms run their CSA’s based on this model. This gives you, the consumer, the option to purchase the vegetables that you will most enjoy. If you are away on vacation you don’t have to worry about asking a friend or neighbour to pick up your CSA share. You simply don’t purchase anything that week. If you are having a party and need extra beans or lettuce then you can just pick them up at our farmers market. This is a vegetable only CSA and does not include meats, eggs, breads or prepared foods. The CSA ends when our farmers markets end and any unused balance is non-refundable.

You can pick up your CSA share items at any of our farmers markets – locally in Cobourg and Port Hope as well as Toronto at Sick Kids (Tuesdays) and The Stop at Wychwood Barns (Saturdays). You can even change which farmers market you will shop at each week depending on where you find yourself.

Please follow us on Facebook to see what items we will be bringing to the market each week.

This is what a CSA bin might look like, though the contents will vary week to week! <3
