VEGGIE BASKETS



WHAT IS A VEGGIE BASKET?

Veggie baskets provide you with fresh, local, certified organic produce and give you and your family an active role in sustainable, local organic agriculture. You purchase a share of the harvest at the beginning of the season, and we deliver vegetable baskets to your neighbourhood every week from early summer to late fall.

Community Supported Agriculture creates a direct connection between you and your farmer. As your farmers, we make sure you get your share’s worth. We carefully plan the season in advance, we choose diverse varieties that are adapted to our growing climate, we protect and cultivate the crops all summer, and we maintain a productive relationship with you throughout the year to ensure a plentiful and varied basket every week. Let’s celebrate the harvest together!


WHAT’S IN A BASKET?

We produce about 50 different kinds of vegetables (about 150 varieties). The selection varies with the season and every year we try new varieties and cultivars to add diversity to the basket!

In Ottawa and Wakefield we offer a flexible “market-style” basket instead of pre-assembled boxes. The veggies are presented in bulk bins and we provide a list of items and choices to guide you through the week’s options. Select your preferred varieties, make up your own pints and quarts, and mix and match from tables of like items. You can also use the exchange box to further customize your basket.

Our weekly newsletter gives you a preview of what’s in the basket, recipe ideas and special offers for seasonal items like bulk basil, canning tomatoes and garlic.

Please note that the basket is not completely free-choice and we can’t guarantee that the selection available will accommodate the needs of those with dietary restrictions.

 
FALL BASKET

Our fall basket provides you with a selection of fresh leafy greens, roots, alliums, cabbage crops and winter squash to see you through the cool end of season into the holidays. Formats and prices for the fall share will be available in late summer 2024.

FAMILY FARMER’S NETWORK

We are proud members of the Réseau des Fermiers de Famille, a not-for-profit network of certified organic farms in Quebec that is operated by our coop, the Cooperative d’agriculteurs de proximité écologique. When you register for a share you will also pay a contribution of $24.35 + tax on top of the price of the basket. This contribution goes directly and entirely to the RFF. In addition to our own member fees, it pays to operate the network’s scheduling, management and marketing software and to promoting sustainable local food systems through outreach and education for farmers and community members.
