ABOUT OUR CSA

  • The Program runs for 20 weeks from late May to October. Exact start date is dependent on early season weather.
  • Boxes are picked up weekly at either our farm in Appledale or from our stand at the Nelson farmer’s market.
  • Shares are $650/$475 for 20 weeks. Payment can be made by cheque, cash or e-transfer.
  • We are dedicated to doing our best to make our CSA program accessible to all households, regardless of income.  If your household requires an alternate payment schedule, please get in touch directly to discuss options.                                   ALSO
  • There is a pretty rad coupon program run by Healthy Families BC and the BC Farmers Market Association the coupons can be used to purchase produce from our stand (and all the other awesome local farmers! ) at the Nelson Farmers Market on Baker St. Wednesdays from June to Sept. The coupons are available at various advocacy organizations in Nelson (Food Cupboard, Kootenay Kids etc.)
  • What if I’m going away this summer? We ask that members organize a friend or neighbour to come and pick the box up on their behalf OR give us at least 1 week’s notice and we can defer your box to later in the season.
  • We are often asked how many people an average box feeds and the answer is always: it depends! Some households eat tons of fresh vegetables and some comparatively little. But the most consistent feedback we get about our CSA boxes is that they are abundantly full ! For some households that means it’s more than they are used to eating but we have never had anyone say it wasn’t enough 🙂
