What is a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Box Program?
The CSA program is a prepaid subscription to a farm’s produce for the season. . You know it’s fresh and you get to meet the farm and people who grew your food! Importantly, the prepaid CSA arrangements also provide financial security for us during the quiet times of the year, as we prepare for another year of growing CERTIFIED ORGANIC produce for the region. Box programs are amazing and it brings income to the farmer before the harvest season. This allows the farmer to plan how much to plant and orders the seeds accordingly. The customer comes to the farm and picks up the box with unique items that they might not have tried before. The farmer is happy as the food that they planted will go to a wonderful customer and the next crop can be planned for. It is a wonderful relationship between the farmer and the customer. We are starting a Spring & Summer box program, this June! The exact start date is to be determined, sign up sheets are available here: box_customer_registration_form_spring&summer_2021.doc. Bring it to the farm along with your payment and step into the wonderful world of CSA! It will be a 10-week program at $55 per box or $550 for the 10 weeks. We take Cash, Cheque, or Debit. We are dedicated to producing nutritious organic food. How dedicated are you to feeding yourself well? This will be the 20th year that Nanoose Edibles Certified Organic Farm is offering a nutritionally dense certified organic weekly produce box to customers in the Mid-Vancouver Island Region. The box will feed two to four people. You can opt to receive the box fortnightly If you are concerned about receiving too much produce, we suggest that you try sharing a box with a neighbour or relative. Otherwise, you may opt to receive a box every fortnight instead. This box program can only work if there are a sufficient number of people willing to participate.
