Our CSA for the 2023 spring is full. Check in again in July to see if we have some space for our fall CSA. Or just send us a message and get on the waiting list.
Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) – aka a weekly vegetable box
Get an assortment of nutritious, yummy vegetables once a week from our farm. You commit in advance to support us and pay ahead of time which will make our planning easier, and we commit to supply you each week with a share of salad, veggies and herbs. Details below.
We offer a full CSA from May until November or a half CSA from May until August or August until November. The size of the share is for 2 adults. Multiple shares can be purchased for one household if your demand is higher. We also have extra items available that can be purchased when you are picking up your share.
A weekly share will look something like this (depending on availability and season):
- salad mix or spinach or arugula or mache (all washed)
- 1 seasonal herb
- 4 units of vegetables or occasionally flowers and spring transplants (you can expect the following: beans, beet greens, beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, celeriac, chard, cucumbers, daikon, eggplants, fennel, flowers, garlic, gourds/pumpkins, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, red/yellow onions, pac choi, peas, peppers sweet and hot, potatoes, radicchio, fresh radish, watermelon radish, rutabaga, shallots, winter squash, sunchokes, tomatoes, salad turnips, zucchini, veggie/herb/flower transplants)
All vegetables are certified organic and the vast majority will be grown on our own farm. In addition, we work with Maple Shade Farm in Noel, NS
On our Halifax stop we will also set up a full market stall, so you can purchase extra veggies. Tell your friends and bring cash!
Full season (26 weeks)
Thursdays (Maitland & Halifax): May 18–November 9
Spring half-season (13 weeks)
Thursdays (Maitland & Halifax): May 18–August 10
Fall half-season (13 weeks)
Thursdays (Maitland & Halifax): August 17–November 9
We ask for a full commitment to the seasons you choose. If you want to skip a week, that is fine, but we cannot reimburse you for the missed week.
Vegetable share: $26/week
Full season: 26 weeks x $26 = $676
Half season: 13 weeks x $26 = $338
Spring half-season: payment due May 8.
Fall half-season: payment due August 7.
Full season subscribers can pay in two instalments, due on the dates above. If you prefer to pay all upfront, you can do that too.
Your payment is confirmation of your participation, and we are accepting CSA subscribers on a first-come, first-served basis.
You are in charge of picking up your weekly share at our designated pick-up spots. We will be on-site with our van, and set up our little market stall where you can purchase extra produce. Bring cash and tell your friends about us.
Note: We will follow all safety guidelines requested and ask you to do so as well!
