Winter CSA

About our Winter CSA

Community Supported Agriculture (or Community Shared Agriculture) directly connects customers (that’s you!) to your farmers (that’s us!). Being a member of a CSA and eating seasonally also connects you to the land where this food is grown and to the natural world. The produce we offer is grown on our farm (with the exception of a few treats here and there) and what is offered to you directly reflects this land and the season the food was grown.

Our Winter CSA runs for 10 pickups every two weeks from November to March.  You will receive our farm’s nutritious and flavourful vegetables and fresh, sweet spinach from our unheated tunnels. Using our highly popular point system, you choose the vegetables and the quantities you want for you and your family. Our bi-weekly newsletter provides recipe ideas, vegetable storage information, as well as farm photos and updates. Come experience Whole Circle Farm in winter!

How Many Pick ups?

There are 10 pick ups spread out over 20 weeks. This means you pick up your vegetables every other week.

When & Where Do We Pick Up Our Share?

Pick ups are Every Other Thursday, 3 – 7pm.

Winter CSA pick ups are at our Farm Store (8786 Wellington Rd 50, Erin ON).

What can I expect in my Winter CSA share?

Early winter tends to provide fresh veggies from the field (depending on the timing of the first frosts) like salad greens, kale and Swiss chard. We hope to provide fresh spinach each week from our unheated tunnels. Through the winter, your share will be filled with veggies from our root cellar (carrots, beets, potatoes, sweet potatoes, parsnips, garlic, onions, cabbage, winter squashes, turnips, radishes, celeriac, kohlrabi, sunchokes, etc).
