Community Supported Agriculture

A CSA share provides you with a direct relationship to where your food is produced (here!) and who is growing it (we are!). With this model, you pay the full cost of the share at the beginning of the season*, which allows us to purchase seed and equipment in the spring when expenses are highest. It allows you to eat seasonally, locally, and deliciously all summer long and know exactly where it's coming from.

 

When you sign up for our share you'll get a box of fresh veggies delivered to your door every week for 18 weeks from June to October. We harvest everything the day before delivery to ensure your food is super fresh.

*Payment plan is also available.

2020 CSA IS FULL!

THANK YOU ALL <3

HOW IT WORKS

  • Each week you get a harvest share — a diverse basket of freshly harvested produce chosen by us, your farmers.

  • We deliver right to your door in the Kingston and Napanee area, as well as Toronto. You can also pick up your share at the farm in Croydon or at the Napanee Hometown Market on Saturdays from 9-2.

  • The baskets are delivered or available for pick up weekly for 18 weeks from mid June to mid October. We also offer a "vacation" option of 16 weeks, allowing you to choose any 2 weeks throughout the season when you won't be around to get a basket. These don't have to be consecutive and can be anytime. Just give us a heads up the week before.

  • Can't subscribe but want to support small farms and community health? Consider sponsoring a full or partial share, and we'll deliver it to local families in need.

HOW TO SIGN UP

  • First, decide whether you can pick up your share, or if you'll need delivery. Even if you're not downtown Napanee or Kingston, you might be on our delivery route. Get in touch!

  • Then have a look below at our subscription options and prices, and have a peek at our basket examples and choose one that works best for you.

  • Not sure if you can commit? Consider splitting a share with a friend, roommate, or coworkers and fighting over who gets what! Don't forget we'll be sending tasty recipes to help you get the most out of your basket.

  • When you're ready to sign up, fill out this form and we'll get back to you to co-ordinate payment and delivery/pick-up.

SIZES

Our small share is suitable for a small family, couple, or one veggie-loving individual.

Our large share works well if you're like us and eat a lot of veggies. Good for a large household, or a pair of vegetarians.

Remember that you can always freeze or preserve extra veggies to munch on throughout the winter months.

WHAT YOU'LL BE ENJOYING

We aim to provide you with 8-12 different items (vegetables & herbs, and sometimes fruits) with every basket.
