Box Model

As a customer in our box program, you come to your pickup location each week and trade last week’s empty box for a new box full of fresh, local veggies. Some customers describe this style of CSA as “like Christmas every week,” and enjoy planning their meals around what they get in their box. The box program can encourage you to try things you might not otherwise. We offer a large box, ideal for a family or a couple of veggie-lovers, and a small box, ideal for a couple or an individual veggie-lover.

We offer our box program at all of our farmers’ market locations, on-farm, and at selected neighbourhood locations. To find a box pickup location near you, or to download the brochure and registration form for your location, visit our locations page. If you already know your location and just want the form, you can find one here.
