CSA

Community Supported Agriculture

 

What’s a CSA
Simply, it’s a garden service where we harvest and deliver to a host home of your choice. Vegetables and fruits come clean, packaged and ready to prepare. Your weekly share of fresh produce comes directly from our gardens throughout the growing and harvest seasons. Bill talks about the operation on YouTube.

5 benefits of joining our CSA 

  1. See where real food lives and grows from the ground up and under what conditions.
  2. Everything is pesticide free and naturally grown, food tastes like it was meant to taste.
  3. Produce is harvested just before delivery and is far fresher and at it’s optimal nutritional value than anything picked before it’s time.
  4. You may not be familiar with everything that goes into your share, but try it and over time you will find fresh vegetables and fruits taste great!
  5. All our fruits and vegetables are naturally ripened and grown on our farm.

We deliver to
Lacombe and Edmonton – Tuesday afternoons
Red Deer, Airdrie and Calgary – Thursday afternoons

We grow 40 different types of vegetables involving a lot of varieties each season. There will be lighter crops like lettuce, kale, leafy and spicy greens. Peas, carrots, cucumbers, beans, garlic and onions come in mid-season. Later crops like cabbage, squash, pumpkins, corn and potatoes, round out the season.
One year we had oodles of zucchini and piles of beans but no basil or carrots! Other years we could have loads of carrots and small amounts of peas due to the weather conditions, we keep replanting the things we can. Some products take all summer to get one crop like the pumpkins and squashes.

Hi Edie,
I would like to thank you and your staff at the gardens for such a wonderful season. This was my first year as a CSA member and I am very happy with the produce and service you provided. I am already looking forward to next season!!!
Thank you so much! We enjoyed our fruits and vegetables a lot. We discovered fruits and vegetables we didn’t know existed, and the recipes you sent were delicious. I will sure recommend to anyone to be part of the CSA program next year!
Have a wonderful rest of the year, and please keep me posted 🙂

Thank you for the high quality produce throughout the summer and fall. We have been delighted and excited to
discover our weekly offerings! We appreciated the special treats as well (…jam, pumpkin, pickles, honey, wheat,
sweet peas, etc.). Can’t wait for next year!
All the best,
