Community Shared Agriculture is the backbone of our farm: 2018 will be our fifth growing season here, producing over 100 different varieties of vegetables, herbs and flowers for our wonderful customers.
We’ve dialed in our cropping and customer service over the past four seasons here and feel that our CSA offers some of the best quality and value you can find anywhere. From springtime peas and greens to hearty fall crops for cold winter nights, we offer generous amounts of both staple and specialty vegetables. Our weekly shares, which run from late June through late October – with an optional extension that runs to Christmas, give the foundation of a great diet, inspiration in the kitchen, and extra to put up as preserves.
Once a week, you come to the farm, receive your home delivery, or go to the pick-up spot in your neighbourhood and get a hearty dose of seasonal vegetables. The shares are washed, pre-packed and super fresh.
Getting your Veggies
You’re welcome to come to the farm to pick up your veggies (on Wednesday afternoons, from 3-5pm) and take some time to tour the kids around or say “Hi” to the pigs. If you’re unable to make it across the causeway, for a small fee you can have your vegetables dropped off at pick-up locations in Downtown and the West End or even delivered to your home!
Main Season Share Options
The Main Season runs 18 weeks
from Mid-June, to Mid-October
Our Fall/Winter Extension runs bi-weekly, over 10 weeks
from Late October, to Christmas
The Main Season Share is just that, the 8 to 12 seasonal selections of produce. It’s the core of our CSA program, and lots to fill your fridge.
It costs $700, or about $38/week
Neighbourhood Pick-Up and Home Delivery
Our produce is delivered to two locations for pick-up on Wednesdays, from 3pm to closing. You can pick your CSA up at:
Downtown – Cooke’s Fine Foods, 61 Brock St.
West End – Cooke’s Fine Foods, 2395 Princess St
We also have home delivery available for those in Kingston east of Collins Bay Road, and south of the 401.
Neighbourhood Pick-Up costs an additional $90 for the season, or about $5/week
Home Delivery costs an additional $140 for the season, or about $7.50/week
Early Winter Extension
In addition to our Main Season CSA, we’re offering shares in a 10 week extension of the growing season – with crops coming both out of cold storage and resilient, hardy plants left in the field. ‘Now what’s available at that time of year?’ you might ask yourself… Quite a bit, in fact! Going over a list of potential selections, we arrived at nearly 20 different offerings to share with you!
It costs $250, or $25/week
Because in general, these crops are stable, and store well, the extension gets picked up in larger portions, every two weeks (5 times).
Home Delivery is available for an additional $40
