How do you become a Rockstar in the kitchen? It starts with getting your hands on the freshest locally grown ingredients. Our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) makes that part easy and convenient!

What Does It Look Like?

Imagine getting a customizable farm box, created by you, filled with the best locally produced food the Kootenays has to offer, delivered right to your door. You open up your farm box and pull out a big crisp head of green lettuce, a bunch of juicy orange carrots, golden brown sourdough waffles, and jar of chunky strawberry jam. All lovingly made by us, Emily and Nathan, your local farmers.

With our CSA you'll spend less time waiting in line at the grocery store and more time gathered around the kitchen table. Enjoy spending more time with your family and friends, cooking epic meals that everyone will be boasting about.

How Does It Work?

Our CSA Credit program works a little differently than most. Instead of paying for a season's worth of vegetables, you will instead receive credits for our online farm store. With your CSA credits you can order what you want, when you want, in the quantities that you want. Growing vegetables is just one aspect of what we do, so we want to be able to give you the maximum amount of flexibility in what and how often you can order.



Here's how to get involved in our CSA:

  1. Order your CSA Farm Credits through our online farm store.
  2. You will then be sent an email with your CSA Credit number.
  3. Once you receive your CSA Credit number you can start placing orders in our online farm store.
  4. Once you’ve built your order, simply enter your CSA Credit number during checkout in the “gift card or discount code” section to pay for your order.
  5. We will then deliver your order to your door on the designated delivery days for your area. That’s it! It’s super easy. You can start using your CSA Credits right away, or you can wait until we have our spring and summer offering.


8 Perks To Joining Our CSA

  1. Save 10% when you sign up for our CSA Farm Credits.
  2. Investing in your local food system. Paying upfront allows us farmers to purchase seeds, new tools, soil, and other essential supplies for our next growing season during a time of year when our income is low.
  3. More choice and flexibility. With our CSA Farm Credits you can order what you want, when you want, in the quantity that you want.
  4. Less food waste. Traditional CSAs give you a set amount of produce every week. If you have a difficult time eating all of your produce during that week, that food will go to waste. With our CSA Farm Credits you can order what you want in the amounts that best suit your needs.
  5. Less confusion. There is no need to let us know when you’ll be out of town. You are free to order what you want, when you want it.
  6. Share the love! You’re free to share your CSA Credit number with family members and friends!
  7. Easily reload your CSA Farm Credits when they run out.
  8. Investing in the community. Joining a CSA is the easiest way for you to 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 ensures we all have access to food during emergencies such as a global pandemic or floods. It also keeps money within the local economy which leads to more jobs and a thriving community.
