Leslie and Jeff have been farming together for 13 years. Since 2009 when we bought Cedar Down, we have been joyfully growing the highest quality, most beautiful vegetables for the families in our CSA. We love that we can provide beautiful, nutritious, organically grown produce to our local communities and that the kids in our CSA can grow up eating food that is delicious, nutritious and free from chemicals, GMO’s and the nasty stuff that dominates our food system today.
We believe that everyone should be eating food that is nutritious, delicious and just, and that a local, ecologically sound food system is the way to make that happen. Through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), we provide our local community with freshly picked, organically-grown produce and give our members the opportunity to get to know the farm and farmers who produce their food.
Our vegetables are harvested no more than 24 hours before they are ready for pick-up at our drop-offs in Hanover, Guelph and Paisley, Ontario. We also do a winter CSA program, providing members with farm-grown produce throughout the winter months.
