Our weekly veggie boxes are designed to give you the best of what the farm has to offer every week. We pre-plan our crop schedule so there is a wide variety of vegetables available throughout the season and we harvest at peak ripeness so you can enjoy maximum freshness and flavour. We deliver the veggie boxes to Inside U in Woodstock so you have the convenience of picking up in town. Our CSA program is 17 weeks long starting the second week in June and ending the first week in October. The boxes are $30 each/week and pick up is on Wednesdays from 2-6pm at Inside U in Woodstock at 79 Montclair Dr.

What's in a Box?
Your CSA box will contain a variety of over 25 vegetables throughout the program. Your box contents are determined by what’s available in each season:
Spring is the leanest season with lettuce, spinach, arugula, radishes, hakurei turnips being common.
Summer is abundant with tomatoes, cucumbers, sweet peppers, sweet corn.
Fall has a bounty of root vegetables like beets, carrots and potatoes, cabbage and winter squash.
You can expect that your spring box will be a little leaner than the abundant summer and fall months.
Your CSA boxes are pre-packed but we do have a couple of options to give you a little more choice:
Each week at the pick up location we have a ‘Swap Box’ filled with a variety of vegetables. If there’s something you don’t want in your weekly CSA box, simply put it in the swap box and take out a veggie you’d rather have.

Missed Pick Up
We understand that you might be away on holidays, unable to pick up your box or may just need a break one week. If you’re not able to pick up your box, please notify us at least 24 hours in advance of your pick up time to so we can arrange an alternate pickup for you. When you notify us in advance, your options for the week(s) you are away are:
1. You can miss your box the week you’re away and get a double share the previous or following week.
2. You can have a friend or family member pick up your box the week you are away.
3. You can forgo your usual veggie box and get bulk items like potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, garlic, etc instead when you are back.
If you forget to pick up your box it will stay at Inside U overnight until the next day and you can pick it up there anytime. After that day it will be donated.
If you miss making your payment by the due date, we reserve the right to withhold your box until payment is received.
Due to the unpredictable nature of farming (bugs, extreme weather, etc), we cannot guarantee that all of the crops we plant will be available. We do not offer refunds but we will do our best to make sure you are happy with the crops that are available.
