An equitable exchange.
BUILDING A FOOD-CHAIN WE CAN CALL OUR OWN
Community Shared Agriculture
A Farm Share forms a bridge that enables an equitable and secure exchange of food that transcends the consumer-producer relationship and becomes a relationship of co-production and community.
Commonly called a CSA or Community Shared Agriculture, a Farm Share is a pre-season investment in good clean food that enables us to stabilize up-front costs and commit a solid six months to the cultivation of organically grown foods for our share members.
Shareholders buy a share of the harvest at the beginning of the season and pick it up or have it delivered weekly from mid-June to mid-October.
The basis of our Farm Share is a 16-week Vegetable Box packed with bright, flavourful vegetables that we pick at peak readiness.
In addition to the Vegetable Share, Shareholders have the option of adding a Meat Share and an Egg Share to their Share Box.
The weekly Egg Share provides you with a dozen fresh eggs from our pasture-raised, organic grain-fed Americana and Standard Red hens.
The monthly Meat Share is a generously packed 10lb box of select grass-fed Lowline Black Angus beef and Heritage Breed pasture-raised pork.

The Fine Print
I understand that a CSA is based on the idea of shared risk and reward. In the event that the weather gets a little rocky or the farm is dropped with a calamity of uncontrollable proportions that a Share Box is not guaranteed. On the flip side, I understand that given a run of great weather I may be sharing Share Box surplus with friends and family.
I also understand that my Share Box will be donated if I don’t pick it up during pickup time.
