Community Shared Agriculture

Honestly the best produce you will ever find. So much choice and a convenient way to source our veggies. Most of all...we love our farmers and all they do to give us their best. You can't put a price on that!
This CSA was life-changing for me. No kidding. Fresh and local produce with the highest quality, produced with standards and practices that are crucial for quality of life for all, including the next generations. Thank you so much.
I love that my kids are growing up knowing where food comes from and love buying food that is so fresh and alive! No packaging, no shipping. My kids love the farm experience: chickens, climbing the tractors, making decisions at the choice table. We love having an abundance of fresh veggies all summer - saves us time shopping so we can just eat well and enjoy summer. We try new things! Store bought salads go rotten fast and we love Angie’s greens.
I appreciate the passion and commitment the Fertile Ground team put into bringing high quality locally grown produce to the community. I've shifted the way I cook and eat, and now plan my menus around the healthy produce I receive. It's prompted me to explore and try new veg. A massive thank you to the Fertile Ground Team.
Organic food that is locally grown and freshly picked for a reasonable price. Good to know where your food is coming from. Much more fun to pick up than going to the grocery store.
I always thought a good vegetable was a good vegetable. I would buy at the grocery store and at the Kitchener Market. I would look for quality and a good price. I wanted to try a CSA for a year because I really liked the premise of supporting our local farmer. I am still here years later because I believe in the CSA model even more strongly and I get amazing quality (never to be beat anywhere, at any price).
What is CSA?
Community Shared Agriculture (CSA) connects you directly with your farmers. Members pre-purchase a share in the harvest & are treated to an assortment of the fresh, locally-grown vegetables in season each week.
Eat well AND feel great knowing your investment supports:
ecological farming methods
fair wages for our workers
affordable food distribution in the KW community
100% local with most CSA vegetables grown here at our farm.
Our vegetables are fresh & delicious.
You'll taste the difference.
The Main Season CSA runs 19 weeks mid-June to mid-October. We curate ~75% of your weekly share contents, but our market-style setup and Choice Table help you customize what you take home.
Eat delicious favourites and broaden your vegetable horizons.
*Our CSA works best for households with broad and flexible veggie tastes.
