Community Supported Agriculture

  • 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.

The fall basket is offered extra to complete the summer season. It contains only vegetables that can be stored over a extended period, so that you can enjoy delicious fresh veggies after the harvest season is over!

 

Double: 60$

What size suits my needs?

Our 3 different sizes are made to fit the needs of home-chef as well as those of busy locavores. In most cases, the simple share will feed small households or households willing to complete their grocery with veggies of their choice. Home-chefs, families with kids and house-sharers, you needs may be greater and the double share be a better fit. You often eat out or have the kids home only every second week? Think about the bi-weekly share.
