Farm Fresh Organically-Grown Vegetables
Registration is now closed for our 2022 CSA farm shares!
Please visit us at Rockwood Farmers’ Market and Guelph Farmers’ Market this summer to shop our produce.
What is a CSA?
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. When you join our CSA membership, you’re signing on at the beginning of growing season and in return for your investment, you get a share of the crops each week. We have provided a short video below to explain how the CSA model works.
Full Share & Half Share:
Our growing season begins in June and ends in October running for 18 weeks with 2 weeks off for a Farmers Break (see the FAQ’s page for more details). The exact dates of when the share begins and ends will be confirmed in May. Each week, you will receive a variety of freshly hand-picked vegetables from our family farm where we use organic practices to grow our crop.
Option #1- Full Share feeds approximately a family of 3-4.
Option #2- Half Share feeds approximately a family of 1-2.
The full share contains 8-10 veggies per week and the 1/2 share contains 4-5. For example, we harvest 8 crops: beets, carrots, lettuce, bok choy, spring onions, broccoli, cabbage and kohlrabi. The 1/2 share will contain 4 of any of those crops. It depends on how big your family is and your vegetable consumption which one is the best fit for you. The contents of each weekly share will vary depending on what’s in season at the time of picking.
- Full share: $640 ($35.55/box)
- Half share: $350 ($19.44/box)
- Summer Egg Share add on: June to Aug $72 ($6 per week for 12 weeks) SOLD OUT
- Mushroom Share add on: $144 ($8 per week)
- Local Delivery: $126 + hst ($7 per week)
- Kitchener/Waterloo Delivery $162 + hst ($9 per week)
We know it can be hard to pay up front for your fresh veggies for the season so we now offer a Payment plan that is available upon request.

Every Monday you will receive an email listing the vegetables we are looking at harvesting that week along with some delicious recipes and preserving instructions. The vegetables listed in the email are subject to change depending on what we find in the field at the time of harvest. We may decide the crop is not ready for harvest or it has been attacked by bugs and is ruined. If this happens the vegetable will be replaced with a more suitable one.
New this season: Mushroom Share Add-On option
