How does our CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) work?

Our CSA is a subscription that you order once, and then we supply you weekly with a box of peak of the season variety of certified organic veggies. Our Farm has Organic Certification - Certified by Pro-Cert Organic Systems.We went through this multi-year process of of inspections, production plans, records and tests so that you can rest assured that our veggies we grow for you are grown organically. We want you to be confident that our veggies are healthy and safe and comply the the Canada Organic Regime. Our CSA for 2018 will run from the first week of July to the third week of October. As many people end up being away on holidays over the summer period, your CSA subscription will supply you with 13 weeks of veggies, so out of this 16 week period you can let us know which 3 holiday weeks not to pack a box for you.  It is like having your own garden without the work and veggies showing up fresh picked and in season!

Each year the weather is better for some crops and worse for others. The quantity of each type of veggie you receive will vary according to that...the ones that the weather is loving, you will get more of, and the ones the weather is not loving, you will get less of. And on occasion, certain crops will not produce at all in a given year, so we cannot include them – but we will adjust the quantity of other veggies so you still get full value in your box over the course of the season. Our pricing is based on the values of all you will receive over the 13 weeks. In case of a catastrophic crop failures of our entire farm (complete hail out for example) and we are unable to supply your CSA subscription for the rest of the season, we will refund the balance of your unused subscription.

We are offering a Full Share CSA for $598.00 or a Half Share CSA for $299.00. When you do the CSA sign-up, we require a minimum $50.00 deposit to hold your CSA Share, with the balance due May 1st, 2018. 

A common question we get asked is how many people does a half share or a full share feed? This is hard to answer as it depends on how much of a plant strong diet you eat. Based on feedback from subscribers, generally speaking, a half share seems to work for one or two people, and a full share for 3 or more people. However for people with a more plant strong diet, a half share worked for one person and a full share for 2 people.

 You can choose between a pick up option or a delivery option (City of Saskatoon delivery only). If you choose the pick up option, you agree to pick up your Share at the agreed location and time. Our pickup location will be at St. Joseph's Church parking lot at Broadway Av. and 8th St. For the 2018 CSA season you can choose to have your pickup either Tuesdays from 6:30pm to 7:30pm OR Thursdays from 6:30pm to 7:30pm. If you pick delivery option, you can choose to have your delivery either Tuesdays between 6:00pm to 7:30pm OR Thursdays between 6:00pm to 7:30pm. If you choose the delivery option, there is $9.00 per delivery charge (13 weeks X $9.00/ week = $117.00)

For the 2018 season, we will have a "trade box" available for customers who have chosen the pickup option, so you can trade any veggies from your box that you may be allergic to or that your family really does not like (but you have tired them first, right? right?) 

As always, we have a limited amount of subscriptions that we can grow enough to fill. We have 35, 28, 24, 22, 20, 19, 9, 2, 0 shares available for Tuesday pickup/delivery and 35, 33, 25, 23,12,10,7,3,2,0 shares available for Thursday pickup/delivery. Sign up today to secure your subscription.
