Summer CSA

About our Summer 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 Summer CSA runs for 20 consecutive pickups from about mid-June to the end of October. You will receive nutritious and flavourful vegetables, freshly harvested from our fields as they come into season! This is true local, seasonal eating! Using our highly popular point system, you choose the vegetables and the quantities you want for you and your family. Our weekly newsletter provides recipe ideas, vegetable storage information, as well as farm news and photos. Experience local, organic food this summer with Whole Circle Farm!

What can I expect in my Summer CSA share?

We embark on our summer CSA share in the spring season, a time abundant with early favourites like salad greens, fresh herbs, bok choi, and if the season allows – asparagus and rhubarb! The beginning of the summer CSA also offers potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, beets and other frost-sweetened fall veggies. The season progresses with fresh harvests of kale, broccoli, kohlrabi, radishes, salad turnips, beets, carrots, early potatoes, fresh onions and so much more filling our plates and our hearts! The fruiting crops of the warmer months are ready next – beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, summer squash, eggplant, and peppers! Later on in the share, fall favourites like parsnips, leeks, celeriac, winter squash, garlic and onions warm our tummies and our souls! :)
