About Our CSA
What is a CSA?
Community Supported Agriculture is a wonderful way
for a community to support and reconnect with farmers
in their area. At its heart, CSA is an exchange, whereby
anyone in the community can join a membership
by prepaying their vegetables in the spring when farmers
can use the support most. The farmer repays this act of good
faith by providing the group with the freshest in season
produce, and in this exchange, a healthy community
encourages their local food networks to thrive.
How our CSA Works
New this year, we have CSA Market Cards! Prepaying for your summer veggies in the spring has never been so easy and you get what you want every time you shop! Gives you the option to choose what you buy and helps support your farmers!
Send us an email, fill out your application and purchase your Market Card from the farm or online.
Minimum $100- Maximum $1000
Payment methods: Email money transfer to spottedmoosefarms.com (preferred method),
cheque, interact and credit card (due to credit card fees an additional 3% processing fee will be added)
Use your Market Card at any of our Farmer's Markets
and our Farm Stand all season long.
Disclaimer: Market Cards are only redeemable for Spotted Moose Farm products, any product that does not belong to Spotted Moose but sold through us cannot be purchased using the Market Card.
In the unfortunate event of a lost Market Card a replacement card will be issued for a $5 fee.
Many of the benefits for the farm are obvious. We have a reliable, local market to sell our produce to, and we can be paid in advance to invest in some of the necessary tools and inventory at the start of the season. We also create a strong network in our local community, and are able to grow at a steady pace.
For you, our supporter, you get a reliable source of life giving, natural food from right down the road. You support us, knowing that no matter what happens in the volatile world of industrial food production, you'll have a healthy sustainable farm down the road to provide for you and your family.
You also help us to diversify, and in the end, this diversity will also benefit you. As we grow, we will strive to provide as many avenues of sustainable food production as possible, so our growth will mean local edible and medicinal mushrooms, and a diverse range of fruit, berries, and nuts in our sustainable orchards and food forests. In the end, everyone wins when local food networks are strengthened.
Thank you for your support! We look forward to an abundant season!
