In Ontario we ran a 24 week CSA from 2009 until 2016.
Over the next couple of years while we rebuild our farm here in Nova Scotia and while our new community gets to know the "newest farmers" here in town, we are going to be offering vegetable baskets as and when you need them.
There is no annual, monthly or weekly commitment. This is a great way to get your weekly "staples" and to try new vegetables. If you can not make it to the market on a Wednesday or Saturday it still means you are able to get the freshest vegetables in season from our farm.
Your vegetable box will be a seasonal surprise. Each basket will contain between 7-12 different seasonal vegetables grown here at our farm.
For example a mid season basket might contain:
1 head of lettuce
2 sweet peppers
2lbs of tomatillos
2lbs of tomatoes
Bunch of herbs
1 bunch of kale
Vegetable baskets are $30.00 per basket.
Baskets can be paid via e-transfer the day before pick up or cash on the day.
Presently boxes will only be available from our farm Tuesday Evening 4pm - 6pm and Friday Evening 4pm - 6pm.
Either e-mail or call the farm to place your vegetable basket order.
For a Wednesday basket - please order by 5pm on Monday for that week's basket.
For a Friday basket - please order by 5pm on Thursday for that week's basket.

"I look forward to collecting my CSA share - but mostly because of what it represents - not just what is in it. I especially look forward to meeting the people who put their hearts and hands into growing great foods." Heidi
Dear Michael & Sally,
Just a note to thank you for all your hard work in providing the absolute best veggie boxes. Mark and I eagerly awaited Thursdays - your selection, quality and presentation was super. Thanks to canning and freezing, we are still able to enjoy the fruits (& veggies) of your labour.
We feel very blessed to be part of your program, Know that your hard work and long hours are not at all in vain, but deeply appreciated.
With most sincere appreciation,
Mark & Wendy
"We can't thank you enough for all of the wonderful produce this year and the opportunity you provided us to be able to eat local and try so many different veggies that we wouldn't have done otherwise. You guys are the best!"
