How Our CSA Works

Home » How Our CSA Works

Otherwise known as Community Supported Agriculture, 2020 is our eleventh 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 2020 season is $400 and for that we will supply you with a total of $450 worth of Certified Organic vegetables of your own choice. Our Cobourg farmers market starts up on Saturday May 2nd and runs to the end of October . (We will not be at the Cobourg winter market this year.)

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 the Cobourg Farmers Market on Saturdays starting the first week in May.

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
