The Veg

your invited

You will be one of forty CSA members. That means you will be involved directly in how this CSA works. Do you like something that other CSA’s don't grow? We have the opportunity to offer a unique variety of vegetables--the kinds of things difficult to find at large farms and big box stores. Each year we experiment with new varieties and rare heirloom plants for you to discover. We carefully select seeds and plants from seed savers committed to non GMO, organic farming practices such as Westcoast seeds and Salt Spring Seeds. Join us for a tour of the garden and come get your hands dirty! 

Community Supported Agriculture

OUR MAIN FOCUS

Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) connect farmers and consumers in a partnership creating an alternative, locally-based economic model of agriculture and food distribution. In such a partnership CSA members buy a share in the farm at the beginning of the season and then receive a weekly box of produce throughout the growing season. CSAs help farmers by providing income early in the season when startup costs are high, and by guaranteeing a market for the farmer’s produce. In return, members receive a regular supply of fresh, nutritious produce grown in an ecologically sustainable way. Members are also able to put a place and a face to their food by connecting to both the farm and farmer.

Our story

In 2014 our family purchased 8.5 acres in Chilliwack, BC with a vision to live more sustainably. We are starting small and looking to grow slowly and in a manner that will allow us to learn and satisfy our members. We are committed to sharing our love and discovery of good food with you and our community. You shouldn't have to travel far for delicious food!
