I'd love for my house/restaurant/cafe to be a new pick location, is that possible?
Thanks for offering! We would love to expand our delivery range to other parts of Toronto, or even to other cities (between Uxbridge and Toronto, ideally). We would need at least 8 members signed up for that new location. Contact us if you are interested!
What if I go on vacation and can’t pick up my vegetables that week?
No problem! We are at 6 different Toronto markets throughout the city, so you can pick up your missed basket on a different date. All we ask is that you communicate with us in advance when you are not going to pick up. That way, no vegetables are wasted.
Another option is to gift or sell that week’s basket to a neighbour or friend and have them pick up on your behalf.
What if I don’t/can’t eat a certain vegetable?
At all of our CSA pick-ups we have a “Trades Bin” where members can swap out one of their items for another item in the bin.
How much will my CSA basket feed?
What do I need to bring to pick up my basket?
We aim to provide a PACKAGING FREE basket each week. So we ask that you bring your own reusable bags or a cooler to pack your items into. For any loose items such as salad greens we will provide a scale and tongs to weigh out. A packaging free basket has greatly helped to reduce our plastic consumption!
I’m already a CSA member and have a friend/neighbour who wants to join. I heard you offer a referral bonus?
We love referrals! In fact, we reward our member referrals with two dozen farm fresh eggs. When your referral signs up, just have them mention your name and we’ll arrange for your eggs to be delivered at the next CSA drop or market. Spread the word! No limit on how many referrals you provide.
What types of vegetables do you grow?
We grow over 40 different types of vegetables and each year try out a few new items, just for fun! This year some of our new items were shishito peppers and cucamelons. Some of the items we grow regularly are: potatoes, asparagus, rhubarb, peppers, strawberries, carrots, beets, cauliflower, basil, tomatoes, eggplants, raspberries, cabbage, napa, bok choi, kale, rainbow chard, onions, leeks, broccoli, butternut squash, delicata squash, zucchini, patty pans, jerusalem artichokes, radish, green onion, parsley, spinach, lettuce, arugula, and many more.
How many vegetables do I get in each basket?
We aim for 10-12 items in each basket, depending on the time of year.
