At last, spring is in the air! We are planning our crops for the season and are now accepting registration for the 2014 CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) membership. For those who are interested in eating locally grown produce at its best, fresh and in season, consider becoming a CSA member.
The CSA model is a mutually beneficial arrangement between producers and consumers. It allows people to become members of a farm and in so doing, engage in their agricultural community. After growing vegetables in partnership with CSA members for 6 years, we recognize the importance of this arrangement both financially and socially in building a sustainable and local agriculture. It is unlikely that we would be farming today if it were not for the Community Supported Agriculture model.
If you are interested in finding out more about our CSA offering, please review the material listed on our CSA Registration Page. We have also put together a list of FAQs to help answer some common questions. If, after reviewing the information provided, you have any further questions, please be in touch – firstname.lastname@example.org
Saturday April 12th – Town Hall, Orangeville, 8am – 1pm
In addition to potatoes and beets, we will also be featuring certified organic vegetable seeds from our friend Kim Delaney at Hawthorne Farm, Palmerston. We have really enjoyed varieties of tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers that we have grown of hers in the past. We will be bringing a great selection of her seeds for any of you who would like to grow some of your own vegetables this year. Consider it a mini Seedy Saturday – a chance to get excited and imagine creeping cucumber vines and the distinct smell of tomato plants!
For those gardeners who would rather start with seedlings than with seeds, we will be bringing tomato and pepper plants to the first Farmers’ Markets in the spring in both Orangeville and Creemore.
Orangeville OPENING MARKET DAY – Saturday May 10th, 8am – 1pm
Creemore OPENING MARKET DAY – Saturday May 17th, 8am – 1pm
