Info and Pricing
2013 CSA shares are sold out! Please contact the farm for more info and to be put on our waiting list.
Cedar Down Farm grows a diversity of organic veggies for our Summer and Winter CSA.
Summer members receive a weekly share of freshly picked, seasonal vegetables. The veggies are harvested the day before or the morning of your pick-up and brought to one of our drop-off sites for members to pick up. Click HERE to see some samples of what your weekly CSA share will contain throughout the season.
In the winter, hardy, farm-grown storage crops and greens make up bi-weekly shares from November to March. Scroll down for more information!
The Summer Share is 20 weeks long, beginning mid-June and running to the end of October.
- The drop off is “farmers market style” – though the content of each week’s share is chosen by the farmers (and the weather!), the veggies are displayed in bulk so you can choose the lettuce or bunch of carrots that appeals to you and swap items that you don’t want with others
- Members bring their own bags and containers to bring their food home in.
- Each week, members receive a farm newsletter, updating them on
farm goings-on and sharing recipes, info and stories.
- Members pick up from one of three locations:
|Time||Tuesdays 4:00-6:30pm||Thursdays 5-7pm||Wednesdays 4-6pm|
|Location||Grace United Church, 310 12th St. Hanover||The Guelph Youth Music Centre, 75 Cardigan St. Guelph||Back Eddie’s 660 Queen St. N. Paisley|
Share Sizes and Prices
One of the great things about the CSA model is that farmers receive much-needed income at the beginning of the season when most of our costs are incurred. Therefore, we encourage members who are able to pay the full cost of the share as early as possible. However, you may also pay in installments.
We have two share sizes to choose from:
For a couple or a veggie lovin’ individual
- Hanover/Paisley - $435
- Guelph – $445
Suits a family of four or a veggie-lovin’ couple
- Hanover/Paisley – $655
- Guelph – $665
Our “Community Shares” Program:
Cedar Down Farm works with local community service organizations to try and make our food available to folks in the community who may not be able to afford the full cost of a share. By making a small donation, you can help give more people in our community access to fresh, organic produce. If you are able, please consider adding a small donation to the cost of your share when you sign up.
We also offer a winter share made up of farm-grown storage and late-season crops to keep you going through the winter. Winter crops from the farm are flavourful and crisp, colourful and nutritious.
Winter share registrations are taken in late summer. Please contact the farm for more info and to get on our waiting list.
Some of the veggies in the winter share include:
Potatoes, carrots, leeks, rutabagas, beets, parsnip, celeriac, squash, onions, garlic, Chinese cabbage, green and purple cabbage, kohlrabi, cauliflower, spinach, kale and collard greens.
