2018 Season



Enrollment for the 2018 season is now open.

Our vegetables are grown without the use of pesticides, fertilizers, or genetically modified organisms (GMOs). We believe in sustainable agriculture and maintaining healthy soil with natural means so that we don't deplete the soil that we rely on to grow our food. We purchase our seed from the most reputable sources available. All our seed has not been chemically treated. As parents with young children we know how important it is to provide safe and healthy food options.



Our seed is not chemically treated. Treated seeds can contain small amounts of pesticides. Soil insects and insects that attack the seedlings as they are emerging can be controlled or deterred this way. Most of our seeds are germinated in a controlled environment and transplanted after a few weeks.


HOW DOES IT WORK?

Consumers sign up to purchase a seasonal plan in advance, and in turn receive fresh, healthy produce every week or bi-weekly. Which will be delivered to your door. Due to the nature of the business, members of the farm can only get produce the farmer can successfully grow.

Delivery for the upcoming season has yet to be worked out. As an example here is last years times: Kanata will be Wednesday between 6 and 7 p.m. Barrhaven and Westboro Sat. between 10 am and 1 pm. Once September hits, we might have to change the delivery days/times.

We offer weekly delivery from mid-June till late October. We do offer some flexibility. Going to be away for a week? That's fine just give us 48hrs notice that you will not require a basket that week. You will not be charged for that week.

LET US GROW FOR YOU!

Sign up early and let us know what you like and don't. When you sign up add a note/message letting us know the vegetables you would prefer to have each week and what you wouldn't and we'll do our best to see you get what you want.  


WHAT COULD I EXPECT TO RECEIVE EACH WEEK?

Here is a season by season break down:


Spring: Lettuce, Swiss chard, mixed kale, spinach, rhubarb, kohlrabi, radish, leek, turnip, beets, peas, spring onions, and more.

PACKAGE AND PRICE FOR THE 2018 SEASON.

Our main season package is 18 weeks in length, and runs from the week of June 18 until October 15. If you are away a week and don’t want the basket for that week, please let us know ahead of time, so we will not deliver it to you. The length of the season will be determined by mother nature.

HOW MANY CAN I FEED WITH A BASKET?

It all depends on each household’s eating habits. We will strive to provide at least 5-7 different items each week, depending on the season. Vegetarians may find that the basket will only last two to three days.For most the feedback we have received is that it takes a while to eat everything and how well the vegetables keep..

Vegetables are picked fresh for delivery.

HOW DO I PAY?

Weekly/bi-weekly basket are $25 a week. Delivery/pickup can be weekly or bi-weekly. Cash payment is due on delivery.


You can also find us on Facebook which we will try and provide weekly updates on what to expect in your basket that week.
