How do you become a Rockstar in the kitchen? It starts with getting your hands on the freshest locally grown organic ingredients. Our CSA Subscription Box makes that part easy.
How Does it Work?
Imagine every Sunday getting a hand-curated box of organic veggies delivered to your door. You open it up and pull out a big crisp head of lettuce, plump juicy tomatoes, a beautiful bunch of sweet carrots and a variety of other seasonal vegetables, lovingly grown and harvested by us, Emily and Nathan, your local farmers.
With our CSA subscription box you'll spend less time waiting in line at the grocery store and more time gathered around the kitchen table with your family and friends, enjoying each others company and cooking epic meals that everyone will be boasting about.
What are my CSA Subscription Box Options?
There are three options to choose from:
Option 1 is the Full Year 18 week subscription where you pay for the full year up front. You will receive a veggie box every week for 18 weeks starting June 6th - $486
This option is best for the farmer as it provides us with income during time of year when we don't have money coming in. This helps us pay for seeds and equipment we need to start the season.
Option 2 is the Full Year 9 week biweekly subscription where you will receive a veggie box every other week starting on June 6th - $243
This option is great for individuals or couples who want to try out a CSA without the full season commitment.
Option 3 is the Week to Week subscription where you pay for your first veggie box up front for June 6th. You will then pay $27 per week every week for the remaining of the season.
This is our most flexible option. It offers an affordable way to join our CSA and you are able to switch from weekly to biweekly during the season. You can also cancel at anytime.
What about delivery and pick ups?
Deliveries will cost $5 each time. We will send you a delivery subscription link on June 6th that will automatically bill you $5 every Sunday. You can cancel at anytime or skip a week if would like to pick up instead.
Pick ups are free of charge and will happen at the Nelson Farmers Market every Saturday at our booth between 8 am and 2 pm.
What does "CSA" stand for?
CSA means Community Supported Agriculture. A CSA program is the easiest way for you get to know where your food comes from and the hard working people who grow it. It helps build a more resilient local food system which ensure we all have access to food during emergencies such as a global pandemic. It also keeps money within the local economy which leads to more jobs and a thriving community.
Where do you deliver to?
We will be delivering exclusively to any home between Winlaw and Nelson.
When should I sign up?
You should sign up as soon as possible. Our CSA will fill up fast and we only have 15 subscriptions up for grabs.
When does it start and end?
Your first veggie box will arrive Sunday June 6th and your last one will be on Sunday October 3rd.
How many veggies do I get?
Every box will contain $27 worth of organic veggies. This will be about 50% to 70% of your weekly veggies, depending on how many people are in your family.
What's in each box?
The boxes will change slightly from week to week based on what's in season. For a full list of what's going to be in each box check out our blog post What's in this Years CSA Subscription Box?
Since the boxes will change throughout the year you get an opportunity to cook with veggies you might not otherwise have bought from the grocery store. This will expand your local recipe knowledge and make you a Rockstar in the kitchen.
When will I get my veggie box every week?
For delivery, your veggie box will arrive every Sunday morning between 9 am and noon. Picks ups will happen at our booth at the Nelson Farmers Market on Saturdays between 8 am and 2 pm.
What if I want more veggies than what I'm getting?
If for example you're having a family gathering and you need more veggies than you typically get, all you have to do is head to our online shop, add the extra veggies you want to your cart, pay for your order and it will be included in your weekly delivery.
What if I have to miss a week?
Just let us know and we'll refund you for that week.
What if I don't like something that's in my box?
If there's a certain veggie that you don't like just let us know and we can swap it out for something else.
