Become a garden member today and enjoy incredibly fresh, organic vegetables from May-October. We provide all the vegetables that we can grow (including asparagus, rhubarb, sweet corn, strawberries and popcorn!), as well as a large variety of herbs and flowers (edible and cutting flowers).

Coming to the farm each to to pick up your basket of vegetables means that you can customize your box by trading out unwanted vegetables in the Swap Box, and pick up some more veg from the Extras if you want to do some preserving or need a little bit more one week.

Pick up is at the farm Wednesdays from 11am – 7pm. We provide freshly picked organically grown produce throughout the growing season. The season runs for 22 weeks, from mid May and running until mid October. You can pay all at once or in monthly instalments. Can’t make a pickup? We will keep it in our fridge for you until you can.

FULL SHARE – One share is geared to provide produce for two adults who eat at home, or a family with small children. $800

HALF SHARE – Pick up every other week during the season. $450

WORKING SHARE – A work-share member helps at the farm, primarily on harvest days, in exchange for a $50 discount. Usually, working sharers come twice a season for 2½ hours each time. Children are more than welcome to come with their parents!

What is a CSA??

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. In a CSA, farmers grow food for a group of consumers who pay an annual fee to purchase their share of the harvest. It’s commonly called a farm share or weekly vegetable box. We grow the vegetables, you come to the farm to choose your vegetables for the week. It’s a really great way to keep your money in your community. You are directly supporting us – farmers, a family that lives in your community. And we do all that we can to keep our money here too, supporting our neighbours. You also know exactly where your food was grown and who grew it. It’s hours from our field to your table.
