What is a Farm Share? 

 

If you have ever wanted to know your food, this is the program for you! 

 

We are excited to introduce our Farm Share programs (often referred to as a CSA -Community Supported Agriculture) for the 2024 season.  This program is the perfect opportunity to access a wide variety of locally produced goods all throughout the summer season with one easy weekly pick up.

 

Now, what exactly is a Farm Share? Farm Shares are a way of connecting consumers to local producers.  These programs share the risks associated with small-scale farming between producers and consumers.  You make an investment in a farm, or group of farms, and in return for your investment you receive goods from the producer.  

 

These programs bring many benefits to both consumers and producers.  With a growing desire amongst many people to know where their food comes from it is important to create a sustainable local food system.  A reality of small scale farming is the up front costs are high and the risks are even higher.  The success of a season is dependant on many factors and most are out of our control.  There are very few programs available to protect small producers, this limits producers ability to break into the market and consumers ability to obtain sustainable and ethical, locally produced food.  Having consumers pre-purchase shares provides an element of certainty to small farms and assists with upfront costs of production.  This allows us to continue to operate season after season. 

We take our commitment to protecting our farm share holders investment very seriously.  We make efforts to protect our share holders investments by growing a wide variety of crops in multiple different settings (greenhouse, low tunnels, multiple garden locations).  As a final line of defence of our share holders investment we have built relationships with other local producers that share similar philosophies and practices. These farmers are local to us but just far enough away that the likelihood of us all loosing our crops to a storm is low.
