Community Supported Agriculture Questions

Why should I join your CSA program?

By becoming a member of our CSA program you receive a regular supply of organically and locally grown produce for the entire summer and early fall. You'll get fresher, tastier produce that's much better than what you can find at the grocery store and you'll be supporting a new farmer and local business owner at the same time. You'll also get a free organic cotton tote bag at the first CSA pick up in June and 10% off all subsequent produce orders.

How much does the CSA cost?

Full Shares are $35 per share if you pay for the whole season upfront and $37 per share if you pay as you go. Half Shares are $18 per share if you pay upfront and $19 if you pay as you go.

How does pay as you go work?

Your initial purchase is considered a non-refundable two share deposit. In late May or early June you will receive an email asking you to create a customer profile and then another notifying you that you have been "subscribed" to the CSA. The remaining 16 weekly charges will begin on June 20th.

Why is paying as I go more expensive?

Pay as you go shares are more expensive than upfront shares to account for the extra administration and the additional transaction costs.

How long is the CSA?

The CSA runs for 18 weeks from the start of the summer (June 26th or 27th) into the early fall (October 30th or 31t).

Are there any breaks in the CSA?

Yes the CSA is actually 19 weeks in duration with a one week break for Labour Day weekend. There will be no pick up on September Sunday September 4th or Monday September 5th.

Can I skip weeks? What if I'll be away?

You cannot skip weeks but if you'll be away you can send someone to pick up your share in your place. Unclaimed shares will be donated to the Community Fridge KW on Monday evenings.

Can I change my pick-up day?

You can switch your pick up dates by sending us an email at least three days before pick up. You cannot switch pick up dates more than three times in a season.

Can I switch out items I don't like?

You will get to choose between different items (and get a few surprises) throughout the season but our crop plan can't accommodate having members switch items ahead of time.
