A harvest share (often known as a CSA/ Community Supported Agriculture share) provides you with a direct relationship to where your food is grown (on our farm!) and who is growing it (we are!). With this model, you pay the full cost of the harvest share at the beginning of the season, which allows us to purchase seed and equipment in the spring when our expenses are highest. In return, it allows you to eat seasonally, locally, and deliciously all summer long via a weekly produce box from our farm. You become an important part of our farm as a share member.
It’s an opportunity to get acquainted with the flow of a Southern Ontario growing season , to learn new recipes, meet some new folks, and invest in the wellbeing of yourself & your family! At the same time, you'll be supporting a method of growing food that has the health of the soil & you, the eater, as a main priority.
Your share will include a variety of 6 - 9 seasonal vegetables that we harvest fresh from our farm. We strive to provide the tastiest varieties with the home cook in mind. The share will be available weekly on a designated pickup day & time. (Wednesday 3- 6 on the farm in Stouffville) Your share in our farm includes weekly updates & corresponding recipe ideas for the vegetables you will receive, opportunities for you & your family to visit our farm, and the chance to share the ups and downs of small farm life.
Check out these photos from previous shares to get an idea of what we'll be growing for you weekly. We love growing food for our Share members and do our best to inspire you to eat well all season long!
The share runs for 20 weeks over the main growing season in 2024 - mid June to late October. The share's weekly value will be 30$, for a full season cost of 600$. A small family or couple with a good appetite for veggies should be able to eat through a share in a week. If you feel that a share may be too bountiful for your eating habits, consider splitting a share by alternating weekly pickups with a family member or neighbor.
If you find that you could use more veggies in your share we plan to set up a farm stand during the Stouffville share pickup so that you can buy extra veg as you need.
Harvest Share Pickup: Wednesdays from 3 - 6 pm on our farm - just east of Stouffville (York Durham Line & Mantle Ave area)
"My family and I especially loved getting to try items that we normally wouldn’t think to purchase. There is no comparison when it comes to veggies grown locally versus those mass produced from big box stores." -Vanessa L.
