How much does the Weekly Share cost?
Our weekly share costs $50 per week. We estimate that our Weekly Shares feed 2-3 adults (or a family of 4) that enjoy eating their veggies! You will pick up at the farm your share of seasonal produce each week. Shares are 8-10 different items depending on the season.
How Does the Fortnightly Share work?
The Fortnightly Share is exactly half the produce of the Weekly Share as you will receive your box every other week. Boxes are picked up every other week throughout the course of the CSA season - ie. weeks 1,3,5,7, etc… or 2,4,6,8, etc… depending on your assigned CSA start date (we, the farmers, assign you odd or even weeks. The Fortnightly Share is ideal for those households that do not get through a lot of vegetables or as a Supplementary box for those who want more vegetables than the Weekly Box.
Is my payment refundable?
The simple answer is no. Your payment is not refundable. We are happy to transfer it to another family. We do want this service to work for your family and are happy to talk with you if it isn’t. It may be that there is another family to whom who we can transfer your share.
How do I pay?
To join our CSA, you simply go to our online Farm Store, fill out the form and complete your payment. CSA shares are limited and we are unable to hold spaces.
What happens if we can’t come pick up our share, we will be out of town or we just miss our pick up day?
If you are away for a few weeks, you can gift your vegetables to a friend, a family member, a neighbour, etc and they can pick up your share on your pick up day. You can also find someone to pick it up for you.
If I am a Fortnightly member can I change weeks during the season?
Simple answer is No.
Can I come pick up my share early?
Farm pick up is from 10:00am - 6:00pm on Friday. Please do not come before 10:00am, we need this time to harvest, wash, pack up produce, set up the pick up area etc.– The farm is ONLY open between these hours. So arriving early or late is not something we can accommodate.
Will the shares be limited?
Yes, we will be limiting our CSA boxes! First in, best dressed!
What kinds of vegetables and fruits do you grow?
Over 40 different kinds of vegetables and 200 different varieties!! This season we will not be growing melons nor watermelons. Occasionally other fruit is included in the share or available for purchase but its best to consider us vegetable farmers. There is a list of the produce we grow here.
You can look at photos of the weekly harvest for past seasons here. The photos are helpful to see what's in the box and the approximate size of the boxes.
Do you offer half shares?
We don’t offer half shares but do offer a Fortnightly Share! This share is ideal for individuals or small households who may not eat a lot of vegetables or whom eat out frequently. Fortnightly Shares are weekly share boxes delivered or picked up every other week throughout the course of the CSA season.
Can I sign up for a Weekly or Fortnightly share and then switch shares part way through the season?
As the nature of the CSA is to plan and grow the number of shares well in advance, we may be unable to accommodate switches during a season. Please do speak with us if your share is not working for you and we can let you know if there are any options.
