Thinking of gift ideas this holiday season? Want to be able to offer your friends and loved ones gifts that are zero waste and environmentally friendly? The gift of freshly harvested, organically and agroecologically grown produce checks those boxes.
CSA* Vegetable Subscriptions
If you have a student in your life (staying in Guelph for the summer) who could use some good veggies, or a loved one who would appreciate a weekly vegetable subscription service, or even a gift to yourself, may we suggest our CSA. Throughout the month of December we are offering 10% off our CSA prices. We offer two variations of the CSA vegetable subscription to fit most people’s needs.
Bi-weekly – The recipient of this gift will receive a vegetable subscription box consisting of 8-10 freshly harvested produce items, with bi-weekly on farm pick-up between June and October 2020.
Weekly – The recipient of this gift will receive a vegetable subscription box consisting of 8-10 freshly harvested produce items, with weekly on farm pick-up between June and October 2020.
Delivery is available for the entire season, or as needed for an additional fee.
This season we are happy to offer gift certificates in the denominations of $10, $20, $50, and $100. Certificate recipients may use the funds to purchase our produce at any of the markets we attend, as well as at the farm-gate stand. Gift certificates may also be redeemed towards the purchase of a CSA Vegetable Subscription. Certificate amounts do not need to be used in a single purchase, and they will never expire.
*For anyone new to the CSA model, CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Community members reserve a season’s worth of locally grown, freshly picked produce through the pre-purchase of a weekly or bi-weekly vegetable subscription. This in turn offers farmers financial support early in the year when they need to cover major expenses such as seeds, soil amendments, tools, and other necessary equipment/repairs.
Our Wild Leek Farm CSA season runs from mid-June, through to the last week of October. Each week subscription members will come out to the farm and choose their vegetables from what we have to offer at that time. Picking up at the farm offers the opportunity to get to know your farmers, ask questions, say hello to other CSA members, and get a first hand look at how the season is progressing on the farm. Subscription pick-up is currently scheduled for Wednesday afternoons between 3pm and 6pm. If CSA members prefer delivery, we offer this service for the full season, or as needed, for a $5/week fee. CSA members will also be invited to join our members-only Facebook Group to receive progress updates, farming videos, share recipes and more.
CSA Vegetable Subscription options:
Weekly shares are recommended for a house hold (or for sharing) between 4-5 people. Weekly subscription members receive 8-10 produce items every week for 20 weeks.
Bi-weekly shares are recommended for a 1-2 person household/shared subscription. Bi-weekly subscription members receive 8-10 items every other week for 20 weeks.
In 2019 we teamed up with Fruition Guelph and Escaped Domestics to begin offering subscription members an optional add-on of fruit and flowers. Fruit subscriptions run between early July and end of October, and Flower bouquet subscriptions are available weekly and bi-weekly throughout the 20 week season. We look forward to being able to offer these services again in 2020. Please note these are offered at an additional fee to the vegetable subscription.
Special requests for payment plans will be considered, please contact us by email to discuss.
