In case you're wondering...

If you’ve got lots of time to improvise in the kitchen and can whip up great meals with any vegetable at the drop of a hat, that’s nice for you.  Your farmers would love a dinner invite sometime. 

For the rest of us who can barely make toast some days,  your CSA membership includes:

-A pre-pickup reminder and Harvest List so you know what’s headed from the field to your fridge that week

-Recipes and new veggie ideas

-Tips for keeping things fresh

-Farm Newsletters to stay connected

We know life gets busy.  You will get a reminder email before pickup day to make your life easier.  If you can’t make it, simply send a family member, friend, or neighbour to collect your share.  It also makes a great gift for your house-sitter or dog-walker if you’re going on vacation for a couple of weeks.

If your produce is not picked up on-time, we consider it a donation back to the farm and will simply eat or rehome your share (our farm mechanic always appreciates a bonus for his hard work).  In order to keep your farmers sane, our harvest schedule on track, and your produce fresh, there are no exceptions.

We try to make it as easy as possible to help the planet.

You can use whatever bags, boxes, or containers you have lying around at home to transport your produce.  Occasionally we will pre-bag or sort choice items (such as bags of arugula or tomato pints), but for the most part it’s bulk and freestyle.

We see everything from re-used clear produce bags to fabric grocery totes to clean laundry bins.  We also have a few extra bags on hand for you to use if you accidentally forget.  Whatever works for you.

We know that no one wants to waste food. If you’re a first time CSA member, it might take a few weeks to adjust to eating and cooking with what’s in season.  So, even with your best intentions, there may be a few tomatoes that wind up in the compost.  And that’s OK.  It’s all part of learning to eat right from the farm.

For market-style pickups (offered in Squamish only), you can also pass on items that you still have in the fridge or won’t use.

We ask for half of your share to be paid when you sign up.

This reserves your spot (and we do have limited space) and gives us the confidence to invest in seed/supplies/wages/etc to grow for you.  The full balance is due by July 1st. 

E-transfer is pretty convenient, or you’re welcome to mail a cheque.  If the 50% deposit is a bit much all in one go, get in touch and we can set up a payment plan no problem.

Your share is 100% grown by us at our certified organic farm in Pemberton.  Life is full of questions; your food shouldn’t be.
