2017 Farm Share Program

 

We have a few new things for you.  The Farm Share Program we created in 2014 will remain the same.  Based on feedback, this model is serving our members well, and we love it too!

 

NEW! This year we will also be offering a "Traditional" Share Basket for those of you who like to try new things and be surprised every week!  

 

ALSO NEW!  We would like our Shares to be accesible for everyone.  We will be collecting donations from members to help subsidize shares for households whom couldn't afford the share otherwise.

Donations can be made at time of registration.  

HOW  A FARM SHARE WORKS

Your prepaid "Farm Share" gets you weekly access to local organic seasonal produce. You will receive an order form, via email each week, with all our offerings throughout the season. 

You are not obligated to order each week. Your Farm Share is a credit to use throughout the 2017 season.  Skip weeks that you’re away.  Buy extra on weeks you’re having company or to store for winter.

 

HOW A "TRADITIONAL" CSA SHARE WORKS  

 

These baskets will be selected by your farmer each week and will be filled with a wonderful supply of staples and some cool surprises. You will also be able to miss two weeks during the season for vacation and defer them to later in the season. 

 

 


We offer 2 pick-up locations:

Wednesdays 4-7pm, Our Farm Organics 284 Cty Rd 34, Ruthven ON N0P2G0*

Thursdays 4-6pm, City Cyclery 553 Lincoln, Windsor ON*

Bring Your Own Bag/Box to Carry Produce Home

 


The Cost

1. You can purchase a Farm Share for $300 or more, depending on your budget and needs. We recommend $300 for 1-2 people and $500  for 3-4 people  This works out to be approximately $15-$25 of produce each week. 

 

2. Our "Traditional" CSA Share will be the best bang for you buck at only $275 dollars for a 17 week season.  Each basket will contain approximately $18 worth of produce each week. Our traditonal share is the best bang for you buck. 

 If you are unable to pay for your share in full up front, please contact Lesley about payment or payment arrangements

The Benefits of a Farm Share for you

1. There is no value lost for any missed weeks and no need to make arrangements for holidays. You use your Farm Share, when you choose, throughout the season. The food will be fresh and ready when you are.

2. You can purchase the quantities you want, when you want them. Having a party, dining alone, doing some canning or winter storing? Take home the right amount each week, pending availability, of course.

3. You pick the foods you like and don't get stuck with foods you don't want. This reduces waste of produce and your money.

The Benefits of a Farm Share for us

1. Your paid Farm Share provides funds at a time when our costs are highest and we have little income.

2. Your commitment gives us the support to grow an abundance of organic produce while providing you with more flexibility and security for your food purchasing dollars.

 

          We’re looking forward to GROWING for you again this season.
