Here's our vision for 2023!
This page will give you an idea of what our program will look like...but stay tuned for updates.
Welcome to our CSA!
In 2023 we are offering the choice between two vegetable subscriptions:
A weekly "Full Share" vegetable subscription 24 weeks in length (from mid-June to the end of November), including a selection of seasonal crops, plus berries and rhubarb as available;
A bi-weekly "Half Share" veggie subscription, with 12 deliveries over the same 24 week period
We also have a limited number of 'Glen Valley Greens' (ealy-season) and Fruit Share options available to add to your veggie subscription:
Subscribe to an early-season 'Glen Valley Greens' box (weekly or bi-weekly) - a 'greens' heavy produce box that has both a weekly and a bi-weekly schedule ahead of the main season CSA (beginning of May to mid-June).
Add a Fruit share option (weekly or bi-weekly) to your produce subscription - includes seasonal cherries, apricots, plums, peaches, apples and pears from Snowy Mountain Organics in Cawston (from July to end of October)
Add a November Fruit share extension (weekly or bi-weekly) into November to take advantage of fall varieties of apples and pears.
Each weekly box of vegetables is $47/week (24 weeks for the full share or 12 weeks for the half share; the Early Bird option adds either 6 weeks or 3 weeks);
Each weekly Fruit share option is $35/week (18 weeks for the full share, 9 weeks for half share, and an optional 4 or 2-week extension at $22/week over the first four weeks in November)
2.5% credit is applied to accounts for payments made by Interac e-Transfer or by personal cheque
Payment plans include:
1 payment (by March 1);
2 installments (by March 1, and June 1);
6 installments (by March 1 and monthly payments on June 1, July 1, August 1, September 1, and October 1);
A $10 annual membership fee is charged at sign-up to cover the costs of CSA management and payment processing.
