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 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 2017 will run from July 4th to October 17th. 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. Please note the volume of veggies in the box will vary through the season...early in the season it will be lower and later in the season will be higher. 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 April 25th, 2017.  We only have 50, 40, 17, 14, 12, 11, 8, 7, 6, 5, 3, 2, 0 Shares left for the 2017 season.

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 of the previous year, 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. with pickup time Tuesdays from 7:30pm to 8:30pm. Deliveries will be Tuesdays between 3:00pm to 6:00pm. If you choose the delivery option, there is $9.00 per delivery charge (13 weeks X $9.00/ week = $117.00)
