Happy New Year and Happy New Organic Farming Season!!!!!
We are so excited about this new year! With the pandemic still looming we are geared to plow through and feed as many of you as we can via our new home delivery around Toronto! The last 2 years have been a steep learning curve for our farm, but we can honestly say the direct bin delivery of our seasonal produce is a new method of selling that is here to stay!
Our CSA/Home Delivery is a bit different that others out there. First and foremost – we are not re-sellers! The one and only exception being Welsh’s Organic Asparagus. We sell only what is in season from our own fields and out of storage from our own farm in Waterford, Ontario! Therefore quality is very hard to match! AND our prices are hard to beat! Once you sign up (and we are working on a new membership platform – stay tuned!) and pay your premium on the base bin (typically 9 larger items) that we home deliver – your weekly veggie “add-ons” are farmer market priced! Basically, you are paying no more than you would if you had to venture out to the market and buy from our booth and lug it back to your home! This has become a great way for our customers that like to buy bulk Strawberries for jam and also half bushel cases of Roma Tomatoes and Red Shepherd Peppers in season!
Our farm was made to do this! I just grin as I’m filling these bins and we run short of some heirloom tomatoes, or shishito peppers or anything else that was ordered – as I go myself or send one of our crew members OUT TO THE FIELD to harvest the extra we need! We never get shorted as we grow it all ourselves! We customize these bins like crazy! So you are not getting subs you don’t want. You can create a ‘never send’ list that goes right on your packing/delivery slip – so if you never want to see kale, you won’t! If you LOVE say kohlrabi, you’ll see that as a sub for your never sends etc etc. It’s very personal way to shop.
We also do not require a whole or half season payment! We typically like to sign up our families for 4 or 8 weeks and go from there. You can choose your weeks too! Like, every other if need be! You can ‘pause’ deliveries if you go away on holidays! We understand most of our customers like to support more than just one farm. And also enjoy shopping from the farmers markets! So we make it easy to be a member that comes and goes! We are spoiled as we’ve got a lot of members that come – and do not go anywhere LOL!
Our farm is making a very hefty investment in a commercial kitchen on site for 2022/2023 to create ALL sorts of value added kick ass organic prepared food items! We’ve beeen doing perogies, cabbage rolls and sauerkrauts for years, but once this kitchen goes in – they sky is the limit to what we will be creating on farm in that exciting new kitchen! These items will all be available to purchase as ‘add ons’ to weekly baskets being home delivered and also through our partnership with Mama Earth and some Farmers’ Markets around Toronto! And always available for farm pick up if you live in Norfolk County!
At this time we are working on a new membership area on our site for new VIP home delivery members. If you live in Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville, Etobicoke and ALL downtown Toronto email firstname.lastname@example.org to be put our our ‘interested’ and/or ‘waiting list’ as we get organized. If you are in Norfolk County you can email Jessie directly at email@example.com to see if home delivery or farm pick up is best for you! Lots more info to come!
