Is a CSA/Farm Share Like a Grocery Store?

No. What's ready to be harvested is what is included in the shares. Just like having your own garden, you have to harvest when produce is ready or it's no good anymore.

Is a CSA/Farm Share Like a Grocery Store?

Yes, but I would make arrangements first. Due to off-farm employment and lots to do on the farm, we're not always able to take visitors. Be ready for mosquitoes.

What Do You Grow The Most Of?

Typically we do not with the CSA/Farm Share. A CSA/Farm Share is supposed to bring people closer to their food. That's why we like people seeing where the harvest comes from, viewing how much work goes into everything and having the chance to speak to the farmer. Exceptions have been known to be made on occasion.

Primarily, plants grown are for the CSA/Farm Share. Extra is planted just in case. It's hard to know how much grow if you don't know who will be buying from you. That's why a CSA/Farm Share is so great, you know who you're growing for before the growing season starts.

Are You Organic?

How Long Have You Farmed?

We are not certified organic. There are bodies that oversee that farms are growing organically. This requires paperwork and a fee. Two things not liked. Our methods are mostly the same with a little less fossil fuel used. If a plant if sick from a virus, fungus, mold or bacteria, that's it for that plant. But, if that plant is ganged up on by insects who keep making more insects to destroy the plant, we draw the line there and are willing to use a insecticide to save that plant.

Well, in our CSA/Farm Share, there is an option to "swap" out an item for an item already in the Swap Box. But really, if you haven't had eggplant parmesan you really should.

What If I Don't Like Eggplant?

If you are good at growing and harvesting plants, sure. Where growing for a farmers market, a farmer will usually focus on their strong crops. In a CSA/Farm Share, you have to supply a healthy variety, just like someone's own personal garden would.

Every crop only lasts for a certain amount of time. With Canada's free trade agreements, shipments of produce can be brought in from around the world and trucked to a grocery store. We offer "in season" crops from a spot local to you.
