Are you craving FRESH, local greens and veggies???
Last spring, we trialed single, pre-packed vegetable baskets before the start of our regular CSA season.
The baskets sold out in less than 24 hours. The demand for healthy, local, nutritious food is higher than ever, as many people are cooking more at home, avoiding trips to large grocery stores and looking for ways to stay healthy.
This season we are offering TWO SPRING BASKETS for $60. This is also a great opportunity to try out our CSA program before committing to a full season.
Each pre-packed basket will have a mix of approximately 9 seasonal and staple items (items you may receive depending on availability: spinach, salad mix, radish, bok choy, kale, swiss chard, beets, carrots, potatoes, onions). Note that some of the items will be sourced from a neighbouring organic farm as we are out of storage vegetables for the season.
We will have a limited quantity of 80 baskets for each pick up day. We are 80% sold out at our West end locations so grab your spot!
Pick up locations and dates (all outdoor pick up):
WEST TORONTO--> Wellwood Ave (St Clair W) / Hallam St (Bloorcourt) / College St (The Depanneur):

Last season we sold out early of our 2020 CSA vegetable baskets shares. We received a record number of new members and we're incredibly grateful to those who chose to support local food and farmers.
We grow over 40 different varieties of vegetables (and some fruit), all without harmful pesticides, on our solar powered farm. Our electric tractor does some of the heavy lifting, but our small team of farmers are the heart of our farm. You'll find them out harvesting your vegetables fresh from the field, often the morning of delivery.
Your sign up means you are purchasing a "share" of the farm's produce for the season. By paying in advance you help the farm with early start up costs for the season, as well as important crop planning. In return, we provide freshly harvested, seasonal veggie baskets from end of May to end of October. As a CSA member you'll receive regular updates from the farm and will get to know the people who are growing your food.
Want to join this awesome community of people who love to cook, eat and be part of a healthy food system? Find full details here to see if it's a good fit for you.
Farmer Tony Neale talks about why Wheelbarrow Farm decided to install a solar array to power the farm and to invest in the first Canadian Solectrac electric tractor. Watch this new video shot and edited by Adam Pereira.
