CSA Summer Program Info

CSA farms (Community Shared Agriculture) develop a partnership between the farmer and those who consume their food.

By purchasing a share the consumer benefits by receiving a variety of  hand picked fresh produce grown by the farmer. The farmer benefits by receiving financial assistance for the initial purchase of seeds, supplies, and soil amendments.

How it works

At the beginning of the spring you purchase a share. Your share is your portion of the weekly harvest of our produce.

[  Share Prices – 2017  ]

Large Share $875/season

Feeds a family of approximately 5 plus

Medium/Regular $550/season

Feeds a family of approximately 2-3

Small Share $405/season

Feeds a family of approximately 1-2

Our season runs from approximately late June / early July to mid October, weather permitting.

Food box delivery

Each share is delivered weekly to your door on one of our delivery days. Delivery area is based on reasonable proximity to our farm and the number of shareholders within a geographic area.

To date we service the following areas; Waterloo, Kitchener (except for extreme south end – Homer Waston to Hwy 401) and the surrounding communities of  Breslau, Maryhill, Conestogo, St Jacobs and Elmira.

It is always a good idea to email or call us to confirm that we can deliver to you.
