Support Local Farmers, Support Your Community
We have moved away from a traditional CSA model but a pre-season deposit is still an incredible boost to our family farm operation.
Your membership provides us with the necessary resources to:🌿 Purchase seeds, soil, greenhouse supplies, compost, tools, and the materials needed to grow year-round.
✍🏼 Plan out our crops to avoid unnecessary food waste.
🌱 Start growing seedlings indoors in late January.
🌱 Transplant seedlings outdoors in early March.
💪🏽 Provide full-time, year-round employment to folx in our community.
🤝🏽 Forge relationships with other local producers by providing everyone with a secure and stable market for our products.
Buying a membership is a commitment you make to yourself, your family, the community, and to our family farm ...
How it works
🍅 Create an account then decide what suits you best - the $500 Farm Champion Membership or the $250 Farm Friend Membership - and put the membership gift card in your cart and proceed to the checkout. At the checkout, the 10% we're giving you as a thank you is automatically applied.
🧄 After you buy a membership, you’ll get an email with the code for your gift card. Please check your spam folder to make sure you get this email. You will input this unique code at the checkout every time you make a purchase, until your credit runs out. If you lose or misplace this code, no worries, we can re-send it to you.
🍉 If you bought a Farm Champion Membership you’ll get an email every Monday with a special code that will allow you to enter our online farmers’ market one day early, before we open the store to everyone else, so you can make sure to get your favourites before they're are sold out.
🕛 The deadline to order, for everyone, is Wednesdays at midnight. At checkout you choose home delivery (shipping) or contactless pickup at the farm.
👨🏼🌾 On Thursday we head out into our fields & harvest your order FRESH!
🥗 On Friday your order is ready for delivery or pickup!
🌿 Farm Champion members receive a FREE potted herb with their first order (not available for memberships bought from June through to the end of November).
🍓 Your membership is valid from the date of purchase, either for 6 months if you're a Farm Friend, or 1 year if you're a Farm Champion. If you spend the whole $250 or $500 before your 6 months or 1 year is up, you still continue to enjoy all the perks for the full length of your membership!
🍆 When you've spent your $250 or $500 & are ready to invest again, simply start from the beginning. Every single time you buy a membership you'll save 10% at the checkout & your membership extends for another 6 months or 1 year from the date of purchase. There's no limit to the number of times you can benefit from our membership perks.
🥕 If you decide that membership is not right for you, you can still order week to week & pay as you go. Simply create an account & you'll be notified when our online farmers' market opens up for orders. If you decide later that you want to buy another membership, you can do so at any time.
