Ordering a CSA
CSA Schedule: Boxes are distributed each Wednesday at 3 pick-up locations: Antigonish, North Lochaber and Sherbrooke.
The 2021 CSA is for 20 weeks, June 2nd to October 13th. For anyone taking 1 or 2 weeks off during the season, there are 2 extra food boxes that can be received as "makeup boxes" extending the season to October 27th. The cost is $500 with each week's box containing $25 worth of produce and/or eggs. The first payment is due June 1. If you wish you can pay with 2 equal payments, due June 1 and Aug 1.
We prefer payments by E-transfers written to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name in the accompanying note. We also accept cheques, made out to Lochaber Growers, or tap or cash.
There are some options concerning the type of food box.
1. You can receive a box each week that contains $25 value of entirely fruits and vegetables.
2. You can receive a box each week that contains $25 value in produce and a dozen eggs.
3. You can alternate between option1 and option2 so that you receive eggs every other week.
4. You can receive an option1 box or an option2 box every other week. This amounts to 10 boxes in total and is primarily for small families.
The produce in the food box varies as the seasons from June to October progress. For example,
early boxes contain asparagus, rhubarb, lettuces, spinach, radish, strawberries, swiss chard.
Mid-season boxes add snap peas, beans, broccoli, cabbage, pok choy, tomatoes, potatoes.
Late season boxes add sweet corn, squashes, pumpkin, melons, wild blueberries, onions, beets.
This is not the complete list, but gives an idea of the variety of produce in the boxes.
