COMMUNITY SHARED AGRICULTURE

2024 MAIN SEASON CSA REGISTRATION is OPEN

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
  • decreased food waste and carbon footprint
  • 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*

 

Choose from a variety of share add-ons:

  • eggs from our pastured hens
  • mushrooms 
  • flower bouquets
  • extra greens, meat, honey and more
