The idea

Community Supported Agriculture CSA
What is community supported agriculture (CSA)?
  • Baskets are delivered weekly (of bi-weekly) at a designated drop-off point;
  • Are you away for a week or two during the summer? No problem! You may compensate for missed baskets with double shares whenever you desire (before mid-october, farmers must be advised at least a week ahead of any modifiation, up to 2 baskets);
  • Some vegetables are in bulk. You are responsible to bring your own containers.
  • Baskets contain in-season veggies only. They are usually smaller at the beggining of the harvest season, but they fill up as the season goes. Their value is thus an average;
  • Payment can be done in one or two installments. The first payment must be done before the first delivery and confirms the subscription, the second is due before July 31st;
  • Commiting to community supported agriculture is sharing risks with the farmer. Climatic extremes may cause your basket to be smaller than planned. Of course, we do everything we can to deliver a fair share. On the other hand, you'll benefit when harvest is bountiful!

The content

Three sizes are available to suit your needs: simple share, double share and bi-weekly share.

Our simple share will suit small households and families preferring to complete their weekly veggie share at the market. Gourmet, families and roommates, you have greater needs? Our double share is for you. You don't always have the time to cook yourself, or the kids are at home every second week? Opt for our bi-weekly share!

Where possible, delivery is made as a mini-market: you may choose between getting different vegetables or more of one vegetable.
