CSA-Style Homestead Shares
2023 registration is open!
Are you looking to support local, opt for natural, organically-grown farm-to-fork ingredients, and connect with your community? Oh, and did we mention fresh BREAD?
If you answered yes, then our 2023 CSA Homestead Share is for you! If you aren't yet sure, read further on the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model here.
Our weekly Homestead Shares will run from June 1, 2023, for 18 weeks, with 1 flex vacation week for YOU and 1 week off for US (Sept 14, 2023), which means it will run until Oct 5th or 12th.
Here's what you need to know
As with everything we do at the farm, we opt for a waste-free model (almost 100%). That means you will need to come to the
pick-up locations with your reusable containers & bags, or return the containers we pack the veggies in if you are picking up at The Local Fill. For example, we pack the loose mixed greens in reused yogourt containers and you must transfer it to your own container and leave ours in the bin :)
Pro-tip: leave them in your car (and pack extras!)
Two pick up locations
Farm – Our farmstand at 5857 Glen Brook Road, Thursdays 4-6pm
Cornwall – The Local Fill, 1515 Pitt St, Cornwall Thursdays, 2-6pm
**We strongly prefer E-TRANSFERS**, but accept card payments and cash.
In order to reserve your membership, we require a $200 deposit that is non-refundable and is applied toward the total cost of the Homestead Share. We encourage those who can, to pay in full upon signing up, to help us absorb initial season startup costs
The remainder of the share cost must be paid by April 30, 2023 or your spot will be forfeited.
E-transfer payements can be made to our email address: email@example.com (same for the deposit).
Let's keep things as smooth as possible!
Pickup must happen during the set times.
NOTE: Here are instances where changes will be allowed:
Flex Vacation Week: One (1) skipped week allowed for the season. If you find you need more than one, here are your options:
o You may double up the following week
(with advance notice and based on schedules & availability)
o Designate a friend to pick up your box
Forgotten bins (without notice) will be donated and no credit offered. We recommend setting a reminder!
Sorry, NO substitutions.
As of July, there will be a swap box available at the farm pickup ONLY, if you'd like to swap one (1) item. Our CSA is an opportunity for you to try new vegetables or learn to preserve them (freeze, pickle, ferment or dehydrate) for use when fresh veggies will be sparse!
