What the Moose & Bean is a CSA Share??

CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. By supporting the CSA program, you get farm fresh, delicious, healthy fruit and veg every week. You get to try new things you might never find otherwise, cut down on trips to the grocery store, gain a better connection to food production in your local area, and have ALL the good feels of knowing you are supporting a farm family get amazing food on your table, as well as many other local families tables. 

For our weekly CSA box full 2023 growing season (25 weeks) we have either a full payment option (you get a discount this way!) or 2 half payments. There is also a regular size and a larger size. This traditional CSA model is beneficial to us farmers because it allows us to prepare for our growing season - many of the farm's big purchases (seeds, equipment, etc.)  happen in the off season, and it happens with your support!

Shares will start the last week of April* and your last box will be for Thanksgiving weekend.

When we have extra, we share! Extra goodies will be included in your weekly box when we have a bumper crop. 

Guess what else? If you live in Ladysmith you get the option of FREE DELIVERY right to your front door.  We are doing deliveries to Chemainus, Crofton, Duncan and Nanaimo, and doing our best to keep it affordable at $3 per week. Duncan to Ladysmith deliveries are done on Tuesdays. Nanaimo deliveries are done on Wednesday mornings. You can also pick up your share directly from one of our production locations or our farmers market locations on specific days and times that will be elaborated on in an email to CSA members requesting pickup.

Want to see how the magic happens?  CSA members can come check out the farm, and can even get more free vegetables if they want to be a farmer for a few hours! 

Get 10% off when you purchase your full 2023 season with one payment! That's like getting over 2 weeks of produce for free! The price listed already has this discount applied.
