Shares for the July CSA (July 10-31) are available now!
What is a CSA?
Do you want to know where your food comes from and to know your local farmer? Do you want a source of healthy, organically grown veggies and eggs each week? If so, then a CSA share is perfect for you! CSA, or Community Supported Agriculture, represents a partnership between our farm and you. You support the farm through buying a share in advance and in return we provide you with the best vegetables we have on offer each week.
We are extending our CSA to Toronto for the month of July because farmer’s markets are not projected to open in the early season this year due to the pandemic and we want to make sure your needs are met.
How We Grow
We grow our vegetables using organic principles and do not use any synthetic fertilizers or pesticides. We grow varieties that are specially selected for taste and quality and harvest most crops the same day that we deliver them to you.
Our Toronto mini-CSA is a vegetable box program consisting of 4 weekly boxes of mixed seasonal vegetables and some herbs. We will select the items for each box based on what is in-season at the time, and will include plenty of variety. The first CSA pick up is on July 10, and we will deliver the boxes weekly to our pick-up location at 11 Chipping rd in Toronto every Friday between 1pm and 8pm unless you arrange for farm pickup. Pickup at 11 Chipping rd will be from a cooler near the front door or in the garage (we will send instructions prior to the start of the season).
A small box will contain 6 items, and a large box 9 items. The vegetables you will get are a surprise but you can let us know if there is a vegetable you absolutely do NOT want or are allergic to! We will endeavor to ensure you get a good rotation of different veggies each week. Julyoften includes: salad greens, cauliflower, snap peas, tomatoes and eggplant. There will be other things as the season progresses!
Costs for a 4 week share:
Small CSA: $120
Large CSA: $160
Payment by e-transfer to Freshayrfarm@outlook.com is preferred.
