2023 CSA is now full

When you join the CSA, you'll be agreeing to these terms:

SEASON:

  • The main CSA season runs for 20 weeks. I aim to start the baskets the week of June 12, but this can be pushed a week later if the early spring weather is uncooperative. The season will finish around the end of October.

ORDERING YOUR WEEKLY SHARE:

  • This year you get to order exactly what you want! Each week you'll get a newsletter with an online ordering link. Customizing your weekly share gives you some flexibility; you don't need to spend exactly $30/week for a regular share and $45/week for a large share but that's how much you are pre-paying for as a CSA member. I'll keep track of how much credit you have left, and you can top up later in the season if you run out of farm credit.

  • If (when!) you go on vacation and won't need any veggies for a little bit, you don't need to let me know in advance. Use the ordering link to opt out of your weekly order. Or if you are feeling generous, you can share the link with one of your friends and let them use some of your season's credit. Just make sure they know how to pick up their veggies and that they'll need to do so under your name.

SHARE COST:

  • Main season CSA members pay $600 (~$30/wk for 20 wks) for a regular share and $900 (~$45/week for 20 weeks) for a large share.

  • When you sign up, you're agreeing to pay for your share in advance. Ideally, CSA members pay up front before the season starts because this is when the farmer's costs are highest. But you can also pay in instalments, if you need this option, get in touch by email and I'll set you up. Preferred payment method is e-transfer but I also welcome post-dated cheque(s) mailed to the farm. If you miss a payment, I'll get in touch to remind you and check in to see how you are doing.

  • CANCELLATION: If something major happens and you need to cancel your share, send me an e-mail to discuss your pro-rated refund.

 

GETTING YOU VEGGIES:

  • This year you will be picking up your share each week at the farm in Croydon, but you can send someone else (a friend, family member etc) to pick up your share if you can't make it. Make sure they understand where and when to pick up, and to only take the veggies from the tote with your name. I'll send you more details before the season starts.

  • Interested in the CSA but not sure about being able to pick up each week? Sign up conditionally using our form and I'll work to connect you with other members in your neighbourhood who are also interested in sharing pick-up duties. Let's put the Community back into Community Supported Agriculture and save gas and time! If we can't work out a plan before June, you can cancel your conditional registration.

  • If you're unable to pick up an order you placed, I'll donate those veggies and you'll forfeit that week's order $ credit.

  • There will be two pick-up day options each week, and you'll indicate which day you're coming on your weekly veggie order form. In order to keep it as convenient as possible, each pick-up window will be a half day. To keep your veggies cool, you'll take your pre-packed tote out of the walk-in cooler yourself and pack it into your own grocery bags on some tables in the little white barn.
