2021 CSA Shares Now Available
Next season we will once again be offering CSA Shares. This is a growing food distribution method where customers purchase a share in the harvest by paying a one-time upfront fee, and in return, receive a share of the harvest each week of the growing season.
As a Mackay Farms CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) member you will receive an assortment of fresh organically grown vegetables each week for 20 weeks. We will be growing approximately thirty-five different vegetables next year.
A CSA Share will provide a family with an assortment of seasonal vegetables each week. The seasonal fee of $400 represents a significant savings from our regular market stall prices.
How do I get my share each week?
1 – Pick up at the Farm on Wednesdays between 3:00pm and 7:00 pm
2 – At the Elora Farmers’ Market on Saturdays between 9:00 am and 12:00 noon.
3 – Delivery (Elora only) $5.00 per delivery.
What will my share include?
Your share will include an assortment of whatever vegetables are ready for harvest each week. In addition, each member will receive an invitation to our open house, which includes a light lunch and farm tour. If COVID-19 again prevents us from holding an open house, we will be pleased to provide you with an individual tour of the farm and in particular the garden.
How and when do I pay?
Payment is by cash, cheque or e-transfer and is due April 1, 2021, before planting begins.
Is there any flexibility in what goes in my share?
Yes, if you are picking up at the farm, or at the Elora Farmers’ Market it is no problem to swap out items. You can also suspend for vacations and make it up another time.
Is this produce farmed organically and sustainably?
Yes, we don’t use pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. We see ourselves as stewards of the land and are committed to continuous improvement of the environment.
