COMMUNITY SUPPORTED AGRICULTURE

 

About

Community-supported agriculture is an intentional relationship between the folks who grow food and the folks who eat it.

 

A CSA share is more than a veggie delivery service. When you become a member of our community, we commit to using the most sustainable methods to produce the most delicious and good-for-you veggies, in return for a season-long commitment from you, our valued share member. 

This means you are guaranteed a bountiful supply of healthful, local, organic produce at a lower price than shopping at the farmers' market!

SHARE CONTENTS

What exactly does a season of veggies look like? Last year we teamed up with local blog Cookery Nation to walk our customers through unpacking each week's delivery, with videos, recipes, storage tips and more. 

Visit the Cookery Nation blog to see exactly what our customers were offered in 2018!

 

Please note that the actual veggies sent home with each customer was sometimes one or two items less than what is pictured, because customers were offered a choice between two items. For example, on a week that shows cauliflower and broccoli, customers were asked to choose one or the other.

Since you're are committing to buying a season’s worth of produce at the beginning of the season, we aim to discount the price of the vegetables 20% from our market prices for the full shares, and 10% for the half shares. We track this over the course of each season and report back for full transparency.

We look forward to our farm share every week! It's nice knowing where our veggies come from, as well as getting to meet the smiling faces that help to grow them.

I really like tomatoes and Roots and Shoots grow yummy and juicy tomatoes. I eat them raw, in grilled cheese and in tomato sauce. Look at how big this tomato is! I like them really big!

Getting fresh organic vegetables every week was one of the best decisions we've made. Fresh from the farm have more flavour than store bought and healthier!

I've found the veggies always so fresh and tasty - it's been fun learning to prepare some I've never tried before. Even the dog loves the kohlrabi.
