Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) food box is back for the 2023 season! We are celebrating our 8th season of our CSA. Thank you to all of you who have supported us and continue to support us! Since beginning the CSA in 2016, we have been sharing our freshest and finest locally grown produce with families in Antigonish and Guysborough Counties. We are proud of our community partnerships and our commitment to sustainable farming practices.
For the produce lovers, we offer a small and large produce box with additional choices of both free-run eggs and frozen, grass-fed lean ground beef. (The food box prices are locked in for the season, no matter what happens to the price of grocery store food.)
New for 2023!
This year we are offering a new expanded CSA meat box option - A full CSA meat share will include beef, roasts and hamburger; pork chops and roasts; as well as whole chicken! Lamb will also be available upon request. These options will rotate weekly and the value is $30 per week.
The CSA runs for 20 weeks, starting Wednesday, June 7th to October 18th, 2023.
Each week you will receive 4-7 items of the freshest in-season fruits and vegetables and/or free-run eggs and/or frozen grass-fed lean ground beef from our farms.
