  • To enjoy sustainably grown fresh-picked fruits and vegetables from Lindley's Farm and other local farms.
  • To support local farmers who care about the land and the way they grow food.
  • To get a seasonal variety of produce at its peak flavour, with unique recipes for use.
  • To learn more about how your food is grown and connect directly with your farmer via a farm tour and regular crop reports
  • To get additional vouchers for Pick-Your-Own produce, jams and preserves, and baked goods available in the farm market.

How it Works...

Weekly boxes of produce will be available for pick-up once a week for 17 weeks in a row.
Pick up is on Tuesday ( June 9 - September 28, 2020)
OR
Pick up is on Friday (June 12 - October 2, 2020)
You must choose one pick-up day and adhere to that for the season. This ensures your produce is packed fresh for you. We cannot hold your box in our limited cold storage space.
Pick up will be at Lindley's Farm & Market from 12 noon to 6 pm.

What's in the CSA Box?

Each weekly box includes at least one item of fruit including Lindley's strawberries in season.


Seasonal availability, planting/harvest times, and weather patterns will affect what fruit and vegetables are in boxes each week. We will attempt to put as many items grown on our farm into boxes. We may have to supplement with produce from local farm friends.
