How does our CSA work?

We make up produce baskets of fruit and vegetables each week from what is ripe. We typically grow about 30 different crops throughout the year to provide a variety of food for eating seasonally. Our CSA is available from the beginning of April through the end of December, and is flexible enough to accomodate most families' needs.

Two options to choose from

The standard basket plus add-ons: With the standard basket option, all the work is done for you - you just get what is delicious and available each week. You get first priority access to our produce before the farmer's market and the farm stand! If you want add-ons or substitutions please email your choices by Monday evening each week.

The a la carte basket: This is the most flexible option. You get only what you would like, along with priority access to our produce. We e-mail you each week the list of items that we have available, you e-mail us back the list of your choices.

Sign Up

When you sign up, we ask for an initial payment of $200. Each week we deduct the cost of your basket from your balance. When you run out of credit you may top up your account, but, in our CSA, there is no further obligation. We accept payment by credit card, cheque, cash or e-transfer.

For more information and sign up please e-mail Mary at: mlaucks@telus.net.

Ordering

Each Sunday evening you receive an email detailing what produce is available for the next week – indicating what is in the Standard basket and what are the add-ons/substitutions for the week.

By Monday evening order add ons, subsitutions or - for an la carte basket - order the specific items you would like in your basket.
